The KAARO network is a development project in teacher education supported by the Ministry of Education and Culture. The KAARO network gathers together national and international research information that various universities have produced on assessment literacy and its development. It also clarifies the objectives and content of strength-based assessment literacy. The network provides MOOCs and online material, assessment training and seminars to students completing their pedagogical teacher-education studies (pre-primary, basic and general upper secondary education), teacher trainers, teachers exercising their profession and researchers.
Our network also includes teacher trainers, teachers and researchers providing nationwide impact to Finnish culture of assessment literacy.
The project involves the University of Helsinki (project coordination), Aalto University, the University of Eastern Finland, the University of Lapland, the University of Oulu and Åbo Akademi University. We also cooperate with other projects, networks and universities.
The KAARO-network has steering and management groups in addition to local workin groups KAARO Aalto, KAARO Helsinki, KAARO Eastern Finland, KAARO Lapland, KAARO Oulu ja KAARO Åbo.
