The present paper outlines a research-training process carried out with a sample of primary and lower secondary school teachers aimed at assessing the key competence of citizenship learning to learn.

For this purpose, an assessment model was developed called KC-ARCA Model (Key Competences - Assessment, Rubrics, Certification of Achievement Model) which was tested in an exploratory way within the schools involved in the research.

The research-training group identified the competence of learning to learn as a sort of “core competence” able to develop learning and effective behaviours in several fields of action and study.
