Innovative assessment tools and methods - Czech Republic

The General Curriculum is a document prepared by the Ministry of Education (the implementation of the preliminary procedure has now come to an end) offers schools in the Czech Republic enough ‘space’ for using the formative way of assessing pupils in their own school curriculum. The General Curriculum emphasises the development of pupils' personalities, underlines the schools significance by supporting respect for personal values, developing tolerance towards other races, cultures, ways of life and also religion. It gives the school the task of increasing attention in the development of responsible and reasonable decisions. It wishes pupils to be able to evaluate the effect of their behaviour; not only for their own benefit, but also to care about the ethical standards valid in interpersonal and social relations and care about democratic and national traditions. Amongst other purposes of education it also outlines the necessity to stimulate pupils so that they learn to act and deal with others, to develop their inquisitiveness, creativity in learning and life and their willingness to co-operate and help others. Children should learn how to care for their general physical abilities and health; they should learn to understand the principles for maintaining their development and how to look to a future filled with work and self-realisation and to lead a dignified and meaningful life (cf. RVP, 2004, Vojtová, 2004).
