Antti J. Rissanen and Kalle O. Saastamoinen

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.
