Future professionals must have, alongside with the study field specific competences, innovation competences – the ability to participate into innovation processes. If we want to train innovative professionals, we must have methods and tools to assess their competences.

Assessment is one of the most effective methods to guide teaching and learning activities. Assessment should be versatile and support competence development, as well as strengthen student’s self-knowledge and self-guidance. But how to assess students’ innovation competences?
