Abstract—The National Defence University (NDU) trains
officers for the Finnish Defence Forces (FDF) and the Border
Guard. This paper presents NDU’s practices for assessment in
the common part of technology education in cadet training. The
starting level of education at NDU involves earning a Bachelor’s
degree in military science. Methods for collecting data on
knowledge and skills are reviewed to understand learning
measurement. The evaluation of skills is an integral part of
assessment. For the evaluation of knowledge, different cases are
selected to consider practical aspects of assessment.
Index Terms—Assessment, knowledge, performance test, skills, summative test.
