One Platform - Various Tools 

Its best-known tool - the Test - is an easy to use, online, multiple-choice-question format 

 

Worldwide Free Accessibility 


Our mission is to provide global and locally-relevant tools that are accessible to all users, including higher education institutions, organizations, and companies around the world. 

Hence, our wish is to ensure that our best-known tools, the “Test“ and the “Quiz" remain totally free of charge for all users around the world!

 

Premium Access 


However, in order to ensure the development of the Sulitest project, it is necessary to ensure its profitability. By choosing to buy a Premium Access your institution, organization, or company can contribute to the development of this exciting project. In return, it will be granted immediate access to some additional tools and functionalities such as the Explorer and the Customization feature that can be applied on the “Test“and the “Quiz“. Hence, you will be able to adapt Sulitest to your own specific needs, while supporting this initiative!


 For each organization, one or multiple “Examiners“ are registered who can organize Test sessions with the automated online tool, and invite his/her students or colleagues to participate.

What is it?

Sulitest´s best known tool - the “Test“ - is in an online, easy to use, multiple-choice-question format that is available in Learning Mode and Exam Mode. 

 

In Learning Mode users are given the right answers with explanations and sources to deepen their learning about Sustainable Development issues. In Learning Mode, examiners set up the time frame for the “Test“ which can be extended over several weeks. 

In Exam Mode users will be placed in an exam setting where no resources can be consulted. The time frame is set by an examiner, usually ranging from 30-60 minutes.

  

Anonymity

When creating a "Test" session, administrators or examiners  can choose to make this session “anonymous”. In this case, only the candidate will have access to his/her individual scores, whereas examiners will only have access to general statistics and data on the cohort as a whole.

When a session is not “anonymous”, the examiner has access to all the data concerning the candidate. The candidate is informed when beginning the test if the session is anonymous or not.

 

Content Options

To understand sustainable development, it is crucial to have a macro understanding of global issues.

The International Core Module of the “Test“ consists of a set of 30 international questions that are selected from an expert-approved database by an algorithm. It is also important to comprehend local or specific issues, and that is why the International Core module is usually combined with a Specialized Core Module consiting of 20 additional questions.

 

 

 

 

Our methodology for creating and validating questions


Each question is based on a content matrix, aligned with one or more of the UN SDGs,
and is assessed and validated by a group of international experts.

 

 

The Foundational Matrix 


We are convinced that every decision-maker, and all of us should be “sustainability literate,” which would include sustainability knowledge, skills, and mindset. The Foundational Matrix of Sulitest has been designed to include and reflect these three components.

The current Modules focus primarily on the knowledge section and are aligned with one or more SDG; however, we aspire to add Modules focusing on skills and mindset. The full details of the matrix can be found here.

The knowledge subjects are divided into four themes ranging from a broad system perspectives to an individual’s role. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Aligning Sulitest with the SDGs framework


All the tools developed by Sulitest are aligned with the SDGs framework. 
In addition, to improve awareness of specific goals, various entities - including UN agencies, academic institutions, and civil society - in partnership with Sulitest have taken the lead on the development of several SDG-specific modules. Two new modules have been launched during the July 2018 HLPF (High-level Political Forum) on Sustainable Development: SDG 7 Module and the SDG 11 Module. 


Already available Specialized Question Modules on specific SDGs: 

    • SDG Framework Module: supports an understanding of the interconnectedness of our challenges and targets (in collaboration with UN-DESA 
    • SDG7 “Ensure Access to Affordable, Reliable, and Sustainable and Modern Energy for All“ (in collaboration with UN-DESA)
    • SDG11 “Make Cities Inclusive, Safe, Resilient, and Sustainable“ (in collaboration with UNEP)


In progress: 

  • SDG4 “Ensure Inclusive And Quality Education For All and Promote Lifelong Learning“ (in collaboration with UNESCO)
  • SDG 12 “Sustainable Consumption and Production Patterns“ (in collaboration with UNEP)
