Geoportti self-assessments

NOTE the self-assessment tool is under development during 2019. In consequence, things may change or the service may be down for a while. Please come back later if the tool or a test you need is not accessible.

Geoportti self-assessments help you get a quick overview of your current confidence levels in selected geospatial topics by helping you reflect on your strengths and possible weaknesses in the fields that correspond.

Self-assessments are straightforward and simple to perform in only a few minutes. Just go through these four steps:

First, on the research agreement page, either accept or decline the storage of your test results. The answers you provide help universities develop their teaching. Additionally, results can be used in scientific research. Please note that your IP address or any other data identifying you as a person are NOT collected.

Second, please answer some background questions. These data will be stored anonymously with your scorings. If you chose “no” in the first step, this page will not appear.

Third, please self-evaluate your confidence in eight different themes about the chosen topic by selecting the option that best describes your current confidence levels. You are also encouraged to use the text box for comments. Each test presents some hints about things to consider, but you will make your final judgment about how to score your confidence levels.

Fourth, submit the form to get the summary page with your scores and comments. You may choose to compare your own scores against the average scores of other respondents. There is also an option to download the summary page as a .pdf file.

You may also suggest making a new self-assessment about another geospatial topic in the service. For more information, please download the instructions for creating self-assessments: General description and instructions for creating new questionnaires.
