Title 6. Database with test questions
Product Type transparency and certification
Description In order to guarantee transparency and a standardized assessment process, we developed a database with test questions. This database does not only contain questions but also solutions and indications for the assessment.
Target group Players that are involved in the certification process.
The database provides a basis for the self test and for the various CB examination tools because it contains questions on 26 specialist competences, methodical competences, and social competences. To date, this database consists of about 260 questions in 9 languages. The questions are the same in all countries. This is important in terms of transparency and comparability of the certificates. Only about 25% of the questions are used for the self test. In the end, the database will contain about 1000 questions. The questions for each test are chosen at random.

Area of application
Recognition of specialist competences and management competences through a common European certificate; it is not important how the competences have been acquired.
The pool of questions is used on the basis of a common examination procedure at an accredited CEMES examination centre.
The database can be transferred to other countries and competence areas.
The pool of questions is available in English, German, French, Portuguese, Italian, Greek, Czech and Finnish. Only examination centres can access the pool of questions via internet. Private users do not have access to the pool of questions.
