DigComp-Based Assessment and Monitoring Tools

DigCompSat – Digital competence self-reflection item bank

The DigCompSat tool aims at testing empirically the set of DigComp 2.1 competences corresponding to levels 1 to 6 (foundation, intermediate and advanced). The tool is designed with a methodological perspective that allows measuring of digital competence by the three elements - knowledge, skills and attitude – for each of the 5 DigComp areas. It also provides respondents with a self-reflection path on their digital competence. The tool was piloted in Ireland, Latvia and Spain by 16-65 year old individuals. The DigComp tool has sound psychometric properties, including the validity and internal consistency of the items. The tool is able to perform three main functions for test takers: measuring existing competences based on the respondents’ self-reflection; identifying competence gaps; and raising awareness. The conciseness of the items allowed a test-time of less than 30 minutes across different countries, age and educational background groups and genders.
