Guidance for Contextualizing Assessment Measures in Educational Contexts
The decision-making tree below highlights the assessment of children’s holistic learning and development (CHILD) in crisis contexts. Specifically, it underscores the acquisition of knowledge, skills, and attitudes that may, on the one hand, support children to thrive and, on the other hand, hinder their development process, now and in the future. It provides step-by-step guidance from identifying a research problem to utilizing the right research instrument for generating evidence. The targeted users include but are not limited to researchers and practitioners interested in using CHILD measures in crisis contexts. The decision-making tree aims to support the targeted users in making informed decisions about how to choose, contextualize, and implement reliable and valid measures. This is critical to understanding the needs, challenges, and support faced by the communities they serve.
