The EU-funded project, A Rounder Sense of Purpose, is developing an accredited framework of competences in education for sustainable development (ESD) based on the UNECE ESD competences. A key issue for the project is assessing the learning of those who seek to gain these competences. This paper outlines the project approach to assessment and introduces a strand of research that is investigating the concept of horizontal and vertical dialogue as a means of identifying change in learners’ affective development.
