External assessment

Self-assessment instrument

With the help of the self-assessment instrument you can evaluate your own profession-related language competences. A scale indicates how well you have performed in the linguistic tasks.
There are two ways to access the self-assessment instrument:

  • Direct access to the self-assessment of language competences
  • Access for teacher educators for the creation of surveys: This access allows you to create a customised self-assessment survey and to send it to participants.


The activities for external assessment and the instrument for self-assessment were created as part of the project "Assessment of profession-related language competences for teachers of foreign languages"
Participant: University of Teacher Education St.Gallen (PHSG), University of Applied Sciences and Arts of Southern Switzerland (SUPSI), Haute école pédagogique Vaud (HEPL), University of Lausanne (UNIL) – Language Centre, University of Fribourg (UNIFR), main consulting.
The project is financially supported by the Swiss Federal Office of Culture (FOC)
