Sandra Santos, Carla Freire, Iris Barbosa, Hugo Figueiredo e Manuel João Costa: “This paper aims to present an answer to this challenge and describe the adaptation of the Multiple Mini-Interviews (MMI) method (internationally used for the assessment of transversal competencies in Healthcare education selection procedures), to assess transversal competencies of graduate students from several education areas, focusing on different work contexts. This was the first step towards the construction of a method aimed at supporting HEIs in the assessment of their students’ transversal competencies profile, their readiness for the transition for the labour market and, potentially, in the identification of gaps for improvement.”
