Sandra Santos, Iris Barbosa, Carla Freire, Hugo Figueiredo e Manuel João Costa: “This pilot study was conducted to analyse the feasibility of adapting the Multiple Mini-Interviews (MMI) method with 10 stations to assess transversal competencies across different scientific fields. The examinees were 16 students from two Portuguese universities of different scientific fields (e.g., Economics, Education). The results indicated that the MMI method allowed to discriminate participants according to the target transversal competencies and that it gathered good reliability indices for internal consistency and interrater agreement. The analysis of the participants’ perceptions revealed that, overall, the MMI is potentially a method fit for the purpose of assessing transversal competencies necessary for the job market.
