Policy Goals

  • Establishing a clear and consistent assessment system that will ensure fair and objective measurement of educational achievements
  • Developing students' ability for self-reflection based on feedback received from assessment
  • Cultivating a responsible approach to learning in students, including the development of skills in academic integrity and ethical behaviour

Policy Principles

The fundamental principles of the assessment policy include:

Validity and Relevance

In the context of the assessment policy, validity and relevance mean that the process and methods of assessment should aim to measure what is truly important and corresponds to the educational goals and objectives of the programme.

Reliability and Standardization

Reliability and standardization refer to the consistency of assessment results when repeated under similar conditions. This means that if different assessors use the same methods and criteria for assessment, or if the same assessor applies them at different times, the assessment results should be consistent and stable.


Transparency implies the clarity of the entire assessment process for all its participants: students, teachers, and parents. This means that the criteria for assessment, methods, expected outcomes, and procedures should be clearly and beforehand explained and available to all interested parties. Students should understand precisely by what criteria their work will be assessed, what tasks they are to complete, and what the teachers' expectations of their work are.


Feasibility implies that educational tasks and expectations of students should correspond to their age, knowledge, and skills, and also the school's ability to provide the necessary materials, equipment, and support should be taken into account. The goal is to create conditions where every student can demonstrate their abilities and achieve success.

Clarity and Literacy of Formulations

Clarity and literacy of formulations relate to how clearly and understandably tasks, assessment criteria, instructions, and expectations from students are articulated. This means that all educational materials, assessment tasks, and criteria must be formulated in such a way that students can easily understand what is required of them, how their works will be assessed, and what steps they need to take to successfully complete the tasks.

These principles are the foundation for creating a fair and effective assessment system that promotes quality education and the development of students.
