Cross-Curricular Competencies and Characteristic Adaptations
Educationally relevant activities are determined by and, in turn, influence action-related personal characteristics. This is as true for STEM and the arts as it is for languages. In this context, personal characteristics include basic traits and abilities such as the Big Five, working memory and intelligence, as well as beliefs, personal goals, dispositional self-regulation, and other characteristic adaptations and personal action constructs. Such personal characteristics have a significant impact on success in dealing with complex problems. We address them primarily from the perspective of educational assessment.
