The National Network for Developing Assessment Literacy KAARO

​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. 

The KAARO network is a development project in teacher education supported by the Ministry of Education and Culture. The project involves the University of Helsinki, 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.
