Testing and refining, criteria to assess media literacy levels in Europe
Final report - Study
The scope of this study was to assess the theoretical and applied validity of the media literacy framework proposed in the 2010 report, and to provide the European Commission with a revised tool that assesses and ranks the countries in terms of their media literacy levels. The geographic scope of the study was the 27 EU Member States but the study also included three countries from the European Economic Area (see the complete list of countries on page iii). An important outcome of this study is a tool that measures media literacy levels across a range of ages, education levels, income levels,... access levels, and geographic locations. The study covered age groups between 16 and 74, taking into consideration that Eurostat is likely to be the major agency to statistically monitor the developments of media literacy levels in the EU.
