Research Impact: The purpose of this study was to design and validate an assessment instrument to explore how primary school students perceive their competency-based learning. Main findings showed that students from year three to year six have a very high self-perception of competency-based learning, in contrast with the “learning measured” in the international OECD assessments. The instrument is presented in the hope that future studies will develop this theme further, studying the question of perception from the viewpoint of other agents within the educational community.
