EuPEO Instruments Description (MEA & TIM)

The country’s Manual for External Assessment (MEA) is defined as a methodological ebook to be integrated into the platform supported by the EuPEO website. This will correspond to the guidelines for national use of the EuPEO platform and will consist of two questionnaires directed to the national representatives of Physical Education teachers (ECQ and NELAS).

- The EuPEO Country Questionnaire (ECQ) derives from an adaptation of the ESQ. It is self-administered via online (LimeSurvey). The target group for application of this instrument is representatives of the National Associations of Physical Education Professionals, project partners.

- The National External Learning Assessment Systems (NELAS) in Physical Education will be applied to the head representatives of the professional associations of Physical Education. NELAS content analysis will allow the identification of the focus and procedures adopted in each country partner regarding the external assessment of learning in Physical Education or equivalent curricular activities.


The Toolkit for Internal Monitoring (TIM) can be defined as a methodological e-book consisting of a set of tools, based on Physical Education quality indicators, to be used within each school as a monitoring procedure for improving these indicators. In the case of TIM application for participation, it involves applying the instruments described below:
