The paper outlines the authors’ approach to designing test frameworks for ICT competency assessment. The materials of this paper represent the outcomes of a research carried out by the Federal Institute for Education Development on the topic “Conceptual Approaches to Assessing ICT Competency in Teachers with Regard to the Professional Standard”.
