Abstract: Education of the 21st century has been strongly focused on the development of the fundamental universal skills such as critical and creative thinking, problem-solving, global empathy, tolerance, intercultural awareness as well as team-work and collaboration. Formative assessment has emerged to be one of the efficient tools in the development of the above mentioned competences and thus a topical issue in today’s education.
