The assessment of CT skills at a large scale for different age categories is still an open research question; consequently, research on this topic is urgently needed to provide Swiss policy makers with the necessary instruments and data to verify the impact of their decisions on the digital education of Swiss citizens. To address this problem, in this project, we focus on the assessment of CT skills in the Swiss compulsory schools. We aim at (i) defining an age-based competence model for CT for general use, (ii) developing a state of the art Intelligent Tutoring System (ITS) that support pupils while solving specific problems requiring CT in a class and measure at the same time their CT skills, enabling thus a semi-automatic large scale monitoring and (iii) validating the developed framework, collecting data in three cantons – St. Gallen, Vaud and Ticino – that have different specific programs to address CT skills.
