Assessment Task
This individual, written assignment will allow you to improve your self‐awareness, and to focus
your competence development efforts this semester.
Follow the following three steps:
Step 1: Complete the competence‐assessment questionnaire (which will be posted on the LMS),
as a self‐assessment. Your responses to the questionnaire must be exclusively based on your own
views and judgments. You must submit (as an appendix) the completed questionnaire as part of
your assignment.
Step 2: Contact two colleagues, friends, or family members, and ask each one to complete and

email you an assessment of your competences using the competence‐assessment questionnaire.
You must submit (as an appendix) the two filled‐out questionnaires as part of your assignment.
Step 3: Write a short essay (1000 words, +/‐ 10%, reference list excluded) based on the
assessment results. In this essay, you will:
discuss key assessment results (e.g. particularly strong/weak competence areas) and
reflect on major differences between your self‐assessment, and the two assessments you
received from colleagues, friends, or family members (you need to discuss why these
differences in assessment may have occurred)
state which two competence areas you want to develop most this semester (your
“focus”), and what motivates you to make these two competence areas your priority.
Make this choice carefully: it will be the basis for your final reflection essay in assessment
#3.
describe two concrete steps for your personal development for each of your two chosen
competences. These steps should be feasible and relevant, i.e., you should be able to
implement them during the semester, and clearly demonstrate how they will lead to the
development of the chosen competences.
In the short essay (step 3), make use of the concepts and theories from lectures and the
assigned materials, to support your analysis of assessment results, choice of focus and
developmental plan.
Be sure to consider the layout and presentation of the report to ensure that it is of a professional
standard. This includes (but is not limited to) aspects such as spelling and grammar checking,
formatting, conforming to the word count limit, references, citations and the use of supporting
graphics.
