Abstract

The quality of education is increasingly being measured less by the knowledge gained during schooling and more by the level of competence possessed by students at doing a particular job after completing their education. Target and process-planned curricula are being replaced more and more by competence-oriented curricula, especially in science and technology education, where competences, generally defined as the capability or the ability of an individual doing a job properly, are placed at the forefront. If competence is the desired criterion for educational quality, it can be easily established that suitable instruments and methods of measurement are needed for this kind of quality evaluation, which, however, are not yet available. Suitable instrumentation was developed in this study. Its use was demonstrated in the example of elementary education in Slovenia.
