This report describes the development of an online repository of assessments of interpersonal, intrapersonal, and higher-order cognitive competencies. It lists more than 200 assessments, including associated descriptive and evaluative information. The repository enables practitioners, researchers, and policymakers to explore what assessments are available and obtain key information about what they are designed to measure, how they operate, what demands they place on students and teachers, and what kinds of uses their scores support.
The repository development work was conducted by RAND Education. Funding to support the repository has been provided by the William and Flora Hewlett Foundation, The Wallace Foundation, The Raikes Foundation, the Einhorn Family Charitable Trust, and the Overdeck Family Foundation.
This report is part of the RAND Corporation research report series. RAND reports present research findings and objective analysis that address the challenges facing the public and private sectors.
