Southeast Asia Primary Learning Metrics (SEA-PLM)
Global Citizenship Domain Assessment Framework
This assessment framework forms part of the Southeast Asia Primary Learning Metrics (SEA-PLM) assessment program and outlines an approach to assessing global citizenship. The framework should be read together with the SEA-PLM assessment framework for literacy and numeracy in order to understand the broader context of this work. However, this framework for global citizenship has been produced as a stand-alone document acknowledging the status of global citizenship as an interdisciplinary field and a new area of cross-national assessment. The purpose of this assessment framework is to articulate the basic structure of the global citizenship domain as part of SEA-PLM. It provides a description of the constructs to be measured. It also outlines the design and content of the measurement instruments and describes how measures generated by those instruments relate to the constructs. It combines theory and practice to describe "both the ‘what' and the ‘how'" of the SEA-PLM assessment of global citizenship.The scope of work for SEA-PLM included a desk review of relevant literature pertaining to ‘global citizenship' to formulate a definition that addresses both core ASEAN and universal values and relates to competencies appropriate for students at the school Grade 5 level. This review was completed and finalised in March 2015. The resulting definition then informed the development of the Global Citizenship domain of the SEA-PLM Assessment Framework including content and measurement sub-domains. Considerable feedback was provided on both of these documents by the Expert Reference Group and National Teams.
