Abstract

In educational large-scale assessments such as PISA only recently an increasing interest in measuring cross-curricular competencies can be observed. These are now discovered as valuable aspects of school achievement. Complex problem solving (CPS) describes an interesting construct for the diagnostics of domain-general competencies. Here, we present MicroDYN, a new approach for computer-based assessment of CPS. We introduce the new concept, describe proper software and present first results. At last, we provide an outlook for further research and specify necessary steps to take in the effort to measure CPS on an individual level.
