Evaluation and assessment are key elements of any learning process. The quality of assessment has a high impact on the learning process, on the personality development of the learner, and on the student’s self-assessment and motivation, thus performance evaluation requires special attention and responsibility. The careful specification of the learning outcomes is not only crucial for setting the appropriate requirements but also for the purposes of assessment. Evaluation and assessment of students’ performance makes learning outcomes more visible and gives value to the learning. Design and documentation of the assessment process and procedures is also a key issue for validation and recognition of learning outcomes required in non-formal learning context.
