This report describes the collaborative activities undertaken by the Optimizing Assessment for All (OAA) project at Brookings with three countries - Democratic Republic of Congo, The Gambia, and Zambia - to design, develop, and use 21st century skills (21CS) assessments. The mechanics of the activities are described in detail in order to illustrate the methods used in the project and by the countries. This paper marks the third in a series of five reports detailing the work of the Optimizing Assessment for All project at Brookings to strengthen education systems capacity to integrate 21CS into teaching and learning, using assessment as a lever for changing classroom practices.
