Work begins on Check-in-Take-off online assessment tool

October 15, 2019

NALA has started working on the development of a new online assessment tool for the ERASMUS+ Check-In-Take-Off (CITO) project. The online assessment tool will be used by members of the public to assess their literacy, numeracy and digital skills. Our partners in the project include Malta’s Ministry of Education and Employment, Education and Training Boards Ireland (ETBI), Waterford Institute of Technology (WIT), and Fønix AS from Norway.

According to the European Commission, one in five European adults struggle with basic reading and writing, numeracy or using digital tools in everyday life. Adults with basic skills and with a low-level qualification are at a higher risk of unemployment, poverty and social exclusion. Education has the power to transform the lives of learners, their families and their communities and plays an important role in addressing social division and inequality. The new CITO online assessment tool will help people start on a learning journey and it will show, in a clear and simple manner, a range of flexible learning options available to them.

The CITO project is funded by the European Commission under ERASMUS+. It is the only ERASMUS+ funded project with a focus on adult learners.

For more information about the CITO project please contact Alina Horlescu, Project Officer ahorlescu@nala.ie
