The QualiMatrix is a web-based tool to support CEFR-based innovation. A matrix of principled guidelines, promising practices and further resources that can be used by different stakeholders to implement the CEFR at the levels of policy, curriculum development, teaching and assessment.

Using the quality assurance matrix may help you to:
• become familiar with quality assurance procedures and tools that can facilitate and support effective pedagogical practices;
• conduct practical diagnosis of strengths and weaknesses of any CEFR implementation;
• promote transparency in CEFR-informed curricular and pedagogical development within communities of practices.
