Strategic Planning Framework for Assessment of 21st Century Skills in Developing Countries

As globalization and international competition intensifies, students in both developed and developing economies need to be prepared from an early age to meet global challenges. They should be equipped with skills such as critical thinking, problem solving, creativity and collaboration which have become critical for success in the global economy. Assessment of the above skills, which are often referred to as 21st century skills, is truly important but how can it work effectively in developing countries where a large proportion of school systems are characterized by unskilled and uncommitted teachers as well as insufficient funding. Thus, the school environments do not support teaching and assessment of 21st century skills. However, given the growing need for these skills, developing countries must adapt in order to prepare their students for success in the 21st century, enhance their economic growth and improve their competitiveness. Capacity building plans for assessment of 21st century skills should be relevant and effective. This paper discusses a strategic planning framework that will assist developing countries in creating meaningful and useful plans for building capacity for assessment of 21st century skills.Keywords: Strategic planning, Assessment, 21st century skills, Developing countries
