Life skills education assessments: Knowledge, attitudes, and skills

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

UNICEF will present on life skills learning assessment: why it is important, and how it can be done in crisis affected contexts. Life skills are critical for children living in environments prone to disaster and conflict; they can contribute to reduced risk, increased resilience, and improved recovery. Assessment of learning outcomes is a crucial component of quality life skills education. Still, life skills education is lagging behind other subjects in quality, practical methodologies for assessments and evaluations. UNICEF will share an approach to assessment that includes key steps such as: ensuring alignment of assessment items and learning objectives, relevant teacher training, and preparation and planning. We will explore how learning assessments can motivate educators and learners, as well as provide the basis for improved evidenced based quality life skills programming in crisis-affected contexts.
