New annual ÉpStan-Cycle and implementation of a „Trusted Third Party“ on primary school level

Starting next school year, a new annual cycle of the ÉpStan will be implemented: Instead of the pretests in selected classes in May, the pretests will be integrated into the main test phase in November and extended to all classes. The new annual cycle is advantageous, as the ÉpStan are present in the schools only once in the school year and the increased number of students in the pretest allows the judgement of newly developed test material to be even more reliably. In order to meet the requirements of the General Data Protection Regulation, a so-called “Trusted Third Party” (TTP) is commissioned at primary school level to transfer data between the University of Luxembourg, the schools and the Ministry of Education.
