Skolverket: Validation in Theory and Practice – An Introduction


Our Challenge: In the requirements specification we received from Skolverket, there was an extensive list of knowledge requirements that participants needed to achieve. The subject of validation is wide, and for a beginner, there is a lot of information to start with to work in an effective way. The practical steps of the validation process also require exercises. We needed to find a solution that combined facts with relevant yet simple forms of practice. These in turn must capture the aspects of the content that the participants might need to practice more. We also wanted the content to reflect the reality of validation.

Our Solution: We started from the various stages of the validation process and built a web-based training with four reality-related cases staged in dramatised films. By answering questions and solving problems during the cases, participants continually check their knowledge throughout the training. In addition, there is an introductory section with a presentation of the course and an ending section with a final test. The four basic sections serve as a broad introduction to validation. As a compliment, there is a Knowledge Bank filled with additional material in the form of animated fact sequences, articles and literature tips for those who want to learn more. The Knowledge Bank also serves as a support when the participants complete the exercises in the training through direct links to the relevant support material.

Our Strengths: David Lundgren was the project manager on Skolverket’s account for the venture and worked closely with the CWA project team during the development of the training. He was impressed by the scriptwriter’s ability to quickly embark on a completely new subject and appreciated the educational approach with the reality-related cases. Another positive factor in working according to CWA’s method – where we act as a partner rather than a supplier – that David highlighted is that it allows the customer to discuss internally, learn from each other and become stronger as an organisation.
