Marketing Text The eCOTOOL pilot testing several target groups of the eCOTOOL project could be addressed and involved. The pilot testing with 46 participants took place in five European countries and provided a considerable amount of information on how the users perceive the various aspects of the Application Profile and the Competence Model. The results of the pilot testing are most important for the development of optimizations of the Europass CS eco-tools.
Description The eCOTOOL pilot testing took place in Greece, Germany, Italy, Slovenia and Czech Republic after the finalization of the Europass CS eco-tools and the Competence Model. Both, the tools and the competence model, have been tested and evaluated by important eCOTOOL stakeholders like inter alia National Europass Centres, VET qualifications experts, curriculum researchers and national qualifications authorities. The evaluation report of the pilot testing gives an overview of the results and recommendations for optimization.

• National Europass centres (NECs)
• Ministries, Qualification authorities
• VET schools
• Higher education institutions, universities
• Centres of professional training
• Employers, employer organisations, cooperatives

Result After the conduction of the pilot testing in five European countries with 46 participants the feedback was analyzed and recommendations on the technical tools and the competence model have been formulated in deliverable D4.3.
Area of application The pilot testing results can be reviewed in order to get an impression of the first reception of the main eCOTOOL products. The eCOTOOL consortium benefited from the feedback regarding the optimizations of the tools.
