Project NATCCC-PS - New assessment tools for cross-cultural competencies in the domain of problem solving (Network)
Overview The NATCCC-PS network was created as a small and short-term co-operation network of European researchers to improve the visibility and to increase the impact of European research in the field of problem solving, with special emphasis given to large scale international comparative studies. 

Scientific experts working in the field of problem solving came together to develop new concepts and tools, to create synergies; and to produce a research and development plan directed to educational indicators in the field of problem solving. The networks activities had significant impact both on the OECD PISA study and the Adults Literacy and Life Skills Survey (ALLS).

A model curriculum analysis on the understanding of problem solving was carried out in two countries. The analyses was aimed at an inventory to determine the role which the 'problem-solving ability' plays in vocational training. (Reef, 1999, pp. 2, 75f.)

Insight The final report (Reef, 1999) provides a detailed analysis of assessment tools related to the ability of problem solving in international surveys.
