Twenty-first century skills are incorporated into national educational standards in many countries; assessments, however, have been less emphasized as integral components of these new models (Hilton, 2010). Inquiry- and project-based learning interventions involving research as well as technology require compatible methods of assessment to support learners’ progress and development (Cachia et al., 2010). This chapter begins with an overview of previous literature on assessment of 21st century skills, then discusses the use of assessments in a variety of research studies conducted by the authors, and proposes an evidence-based approach for assessing different aspects of 21st century skills. Education practitioners and researchers should bear in mind that some of the 21st century skills such as life and career skills are not always easily measurable in quantitative terms. The chapter therefore focuses on skills that could be evaluated in relatively more concrete ways during an assessment.
