Abstract: Abstract Comprehensive implementation of Information and Communication Technologies in schools is a key factor in empowering students in the European Union (EU) for their future roles. The framework, DigCompOrg, was proposed in 2015 under the direction of the European Commission to encourage self-assessment within EU schools and to update the level of digitalization. This article presents a computer-supported model based on this framework and a multi-attribute decision-making methodology named, DEX. The model was built by a group of experts and tested on selected schools in Slovenia. The main advantages of the model are: the use of qualitative value scales for attributes which do not have exact values; the use of a hierarchical structure for attributes; a transparent presentation of the interconnectedness of these attributes; and the use of simple if–then aggregation rules to allow the use of non-fixed weights. An application of our model to a selected school demonstrates the potential for knowledge modelling to facilitate upgrades of existing assessment tools and to provide a better understanding and analysis of assessment results.
