Australian Higher Education Work begins on OECD student assessment

Work begins on OECD student assessment. The Australian Council for Educational Research ACER has been assessing higher education in the country for years, but now it has moved onto the world stage. ACER is leading a feasibility study into the first global assessment of students’ knowledge and skills, the OECD’s Assessment of Higher Education Learning Outcomes, AHELO.

More than 200 higher education institutions from 15 countries will participate in the feasibility study, which is being conducted by ACER in collaboration with the Council for Aid to Education in the US. The countries are Australia, Belgium, Colombia (to be confirmed), Egypt, Finland, Italy, Japan, Korea, Kuwait, Mexico, the Netherlands, Norway, Russia, Sweden and the US.

The study will look into developing reliable measures to compare learning outcomes across different countries, cultures and languages.
