"In today’s world, we are increasingly hearing calls for global competencies; that is, we are seeing demand for skills such as critical thinking and creativity across both manual and professional occupations. And as a result, education is on the brink of major reform.... There is therefore no doubt about where education is going, but there is a great deal of uncertainty concerning how to get there, and, importantly, how to measure progress along the way....Teachers will need to pursue dynamic pedagogies and model 21st century skills, and assessments will need to reflect the nature of the skills, and also, in the process, reflect those skills themselves."

Teams should identify a specific issue around assessments and have sufficient evidence to support the pervasiveness of the identified problem in the form of primary research.
