Summary: This paper shares our approach to conceptualizing and assessing specific competences developed by students engaged in MATh.en.JEANS (MeJ) workshops. MeJ (Méthode d’Apprentissage des Théories Mathématiques en Jumelant des Etablissements pour une Approche Nouvelle du Savoir) workshops encourage students of different ages to engage in and eventually learn math by discovering and researching it. Both the workshops and the pedagogical research and development were done within the Erasmus+ project Learning math and languages through research and cooperation ‒ MatLan, supported by the European Commission. Based on findings from literature review and on the MeJ facilitator teachers’ observations, we created a model to provide an overview of the competences developed through the MeJ workshops, defined and operationalised specific competences and prepared relevant assessment instruments. The paper shares samples of our proposed assessment instruments, which will be tested and validated within the next stage of our project.
