Introduction to assessment and instrument design

Beniermann, Anna

This video has been prepared by Dr. Anna Beniermann (Substitute Professor, University of Kassel, Germany) for the Euroscitizen WG1/WG3 joint workshop on assessment as a short and basic introduction into the planning of surveys and the development of measurement instruments. The focus of this introduction is on the design of questionnaires to collect quantitative data. Starting with general questions on which steps to take when planning a survey like formulating aims and research questions, the video gives insights into aspects of operationalization and quality criteria. By addressing objectivity, reliability and validity,  the video points out central aspects and potential barriers for conducting a sound survey.

Euroscitizen WG1/WG3 joint workshop was held online in April 2021, with the participation of members from all working groups of the Euroscitizen COST action. The goal of the workshop was to co-design a general assessment tool/framework to allow practitioners to evaluate the impact of their non-formal learning activities, including assessing the general quality of the activity and specific knowledge, attitudes and improving scientific literacy.
