PRIM is a research and test development group with a main focus on assessment of knowledge and competence (mainly in the field of mathematics).
The focus of PRIM includes development, analysis and design of centrally prepared tests, national evaluations and international knowledge measurements as well as assessment with formative focus and feedback. The research includes both qualitative and quantitative analysis of mainly empirical data. Continuous research activities are conducted in connection with the development of assessment methods and measuring instruments linked to studies of knowledge. Of particular interest are questions about the assessment of mathematics in large-scale national or international studies.
