The goal is to develop personal competences of the students beside their regular education and learning processes. The assessments are not rated by the products produced, but rather students get rated by their personal development.

It is a successful way of motivating students to work with their talents and to make some extra steps while studying. A part of this motivation is the way you can reward students with EC’s (European Credits), but also by supporting students and help them develop what they really want.

This can be their skills, but also ideas of starting their own business without knowing where to start. After watching this video you get an idea of how to use assessment and you’ll see the reaction of people who are using it. It is never too late to use your talents!
