LUCET

The Luxembourg Centre for Educational Testing (LUCET) is a research and transfer centre primarily assembling expertise in (large-scale) assessment and testing in technology-rich multilingual learning environments.
LUCET’s most prominent and resource-intensive commissioned research is the implementation, enhancement and assurance of the Luxembourg school monitoring programme Épreuves Standardisées (ÉpStan), which aims at facilitating evidence-based decision making in national education. Through the ÉpStan, LUCET is not only providing timely and policy-relevant information to national educational stakeholders, but also assembling a unique and incredibly rich longitudinal database—panels are actually entire cohorts—about the evolution of students’ competency profiles and their pathways through school—and possibly through life.

Additional mission-oriented research and assessment projects include national analyses and reporting of international large-scale studies (e.g., PISA), (large-scale) cognitive and language testing, university admissions testing and student course evaluations. Many of the aforementioned—partially high-stakes—assessments are completely computer‐ and web‐based—using LUCET’s in-house online assessment system OASYS.

In addition to the centre’s commissioned research in the area of educational measurement, LUCET is also in charge of the coordination, facilitation and dissemination of nationally embedded educational research at the University of Luxembourg. LUCET’s most prominent dissemination outlet is the triennial report on national education, the so-called Bildungsbericht.
