    No entiendo la significada de la palabra 'tamizaje' en esta frase:

    Nota: Durante los días comprendidos entre el 4 y el 14 de noviembre se realizó la sensibilización, la motivación y el tamizaje del conocimiento de las niñas para la conformación de los grupos según edades y nivel de formación en sistemas.

    ???

    Hello JO5EPHL

    'tamizaje' in that sentence could be translated as assesstment, especially in Britain. It means 'the evaluation of a student's achievement on a course'. I' ve seen it translated as 'screening' too, referring to an examination done to detect an unwanted substance or attribute.

    Hope it helps, feel free to ask if you have any doubt.

    Hello JO5EPHL

    Adding to the good post from Grace1969...:

    'tamizaje' in that sentence could be translated as assesstment, especially in Britain. It means 'the evaluation of a student's achievement on a course'. I' ve seen it translated as 'screening' too, referring to an examination done to detect an unwanted substance or attribute.

    I would say, tamizaje is an assesstment that is used with the intention of screening the different levels of advance in a subject, so in the text:

    Durante los días comprendidos entre el 4 y el 14 de noviembre se realizó la "sensibilización, la motivación y el tamizaje del conocimiento de las niñas" para la conformación de los grupos según edades y nivel de formación en sistemas.

    I would prefer to say ... sensibilization, motivation, knowledge assessment and screening of the girls.....

    I find that it will express what it was done: an screening via an assessment of knowledge. You evaluate (assess), and then decide (screen, separate, group), both together are "tamizar" regarding knowledge.


    Hope it helps.
