This paper describes a co-design process for a formative assessment tool in the area of core competencies such as creativity, communication, collaboration, and critical thinking. This process has been carried out in the context of non-formal science education institutions in 19 countries in Europe and the Middle East. The results of the co-design have been influential in the design of a formative assessment chatbot and survey that supports learner competency and self-regulation. We also discuss some preliminary results from the use of the tool and introduce additional considerations with regard to inclusion, technical aspects, and ethics, towards a set of best practices in this area.
