Abstract

What competences in visual literacy should students and European citizens in general master to be able to participate in contemporary society? This central question was addressed by the European Network of Visual Literacy (ENViL). This international community of experts developed a structure of sixteen subcompetences: the Common European Framework of Reference for Visual Literacy. Based on this framework, we developed a tool for self-assessment in secondary education: the visual rubrics. This tool was tested in several countries. The current article describes the evaluation of the criteria included in the tool and students’ comprehension of the tool as a self-assessment system. The consequences for improved rubrics are discussed.
