Online Self-Assessment MENTEP (2015 onwards)

Type of Project/Activity:

The MENTEP (MENtoring Technology-Enhanced Pedagogy) project addressed the need in Europe for teachers able to innovate using ICT in their classroom and for improved data on teachers’ digital competence. Based on this premise, MENTEP investigated the potential of an online self-assessment tool to empower teachers to progress in their Technology-Enhanced Teaching (TET) competence at their own pace. Online self-assessment with MENTEP : A review of the literature 

Main Activities

Project partners developed a common tool together and test it in field trials in around 10 partner countries.
The new online self-assessment tool - reliable, user-friendly and sustainable – is based on similar existing tools. Teachers using the tool will be able to access resources and support via national portals. It will be possible to review and adapt the final tool to future needs.
At least 1000 teachers in each participating country will use the tool during the field trials. Anonymized data collected via the online tool will facilitate the monitoring of teachers’ digital competence at individual, country and EU level.  This will make it possible to show the impact of the tool on the professional development of teachers.
The project also investigated the feasibility of a European-wide certification of TET competence.


MENTEP is coordinated by European Schoolnet. 16 partners in 13 countries are part of this project: Ministries of Education, other public authorities and delegated bodies of public authorities.

Expected Outcomes:

Boosting teachers’ competence and confidence to use ICT in the classroom
Increasing the number of teachers able to innovate using ICT
Enhancing the uptake of ICT in teaching and learning
Strengthening the professional profile of the teaching profession
Improving data on teachers’ digital competence and training needs
Promoting stronger coherence between EU and national approaches to the assessment of Technology-Enhanced Teaching competence

Programme Name and Funder:

The MENTEP project is a European Policy Experimentation funded by the European Commission via the Erasmus+ programme.
