Frequently Asked Questions:

How long has BE been operating and in how many countries are you active?

Beyond Education has been operational for three years, making a significant impact across eight countries. Our presence extends to countries such as Brazil, Ecuador, South Africa, UAE, Switzerland, Slovakia, Portugal, and Hong Kong, where our assessment tools have been embraced by educational institutions seeking to enhance student learning outcomes.

What served as the reference for the development of the BE assessment?

The assessment is based on the 4 Dimensional Educational (4D) framework, a comprehensive model designed by the Center for Curriculum Redesign, in which Michaela Horvathova, Founder of BE helped develop alongside Charles Fadel, professor at Harvard Graduate School of Education.

How was BE assessment validated scientifically?

To validate the questionnaire, pilots with students in several countries were conducted, and the results were statistically studied. Results showed positive correlations between the scores obtained by students on the CCI and the VIA (Values in Action) or the GASC (short version of the VIA). The more a young person is competent in the CCI, the more he is also competent on one of the dimensions or factors measured by the VIA or the GASC, two scales measuring psychosocial-emotional competences centred on the dimension that the 4D calls traits. For more information, you can have a look at the article published on Frontiers of Education: “Psychometric properties of The Competencies Compound Inventory for the 21st Century”.

Which competencies does your assessment analyse?

The assessment delves into 12 psychosocial-emotional competencies, divided into three dimensions. The first dimension is Skills, which encompasses traits such as creativity, critical thinking, communication and collaboration. The second dimension is Character, which encircles mindfulness, curiosity, courage, resilience, ethics and leadership: Finally, the third dimension is meta-learning, which encompasses metacognition, and growth mindset. These competencies are crucial for holistic student development and success in the 21st century. Moreover, it’s worth noting that this framework makes it easy to create a cross-walk between this model and others, ensuring alignment with existing educational standards and frameworks.

What does the educational institution receive upon purchasing the BE Assessment?

In addition to the assessment itself, educational institutions, such as schools, benefit from comprehensive support throughout the process. This includes consultations to determine the project scope, webinars before the assessment period and after, for teachers or coordinators, a client support channel, and an in-depth report with data statistically analysed. An individual report for students is also included and automatically released upon completion of the assessment. Furthermore, we provide a comprehensive toolkit featuring various materials such as instructional resources, brochures, videos and presentations. 

What is the estimated duration for completing the BE Assessment, and what technological specifications are necessary for its implementation?

Typically, participants spend no more than 30 minutes completing the BE Assessment. It is accessible across various devices such as laptops, smartphones, or tablets, and compatible with multiple browsers. A stable internet connection is required to undertake the assessment, as it is currently available exclusively online.

Is the assessment available only in English?

No, our assessment is designed to be inclusive and accessible. It is available in English, Portuguese (both European and Brazilian), Spanish and French. However, we are open to accommodating other languages upon request. If you require the assessment in a different language, please do not hesitate to contact us for further assistance.

Do you provide training for educators administering the assessment?

Yes, we understand the importance of providing adequate support to educators. Hence, we offer comprehensive webinars both before and after the assessment phase to ensure educators are well-equipped to administer the assessment effectively and derive maximum benefit from the insights provided.

Is there a minimum number of students required to participate in order to administer the assessment?

The number of students required varies depending on the objectives of the assessment. While individual reports can be generated from just one student, comparative analyses may necessitate a larger sample size. For other statistical comparisons, we recommend a minimum group size of 30.

How many students have utilized products from Beyond Education?

To date, Beyond Education has positively impacted the learning journey of over 100,000 students worldwide. Our assessment tools have been embraced by educators and students alike, contributing to enhanced learning outcomes and holistic development.
