Abstract:

Over the past five years, the OECD has carried out a feasibility study to see whether it is practically and scientifically feasible to assess what students in higher education know and can do upon graduation across diverse countries, languages, cultures and institution types. This has involved 249 [higher education institutions] HEIs across 17 countries and regions joining forces to survey some 4,900 faculties and test some 23,000 students. This report presents the design and implementation lessons learnt from this unprecedented experience, as the [Assessment of Higher Education Learning Outcomes] AHELO feasibility study concludes in December 2012. A second volume will be published in February 2013 that will delve further into the analysis of the data and national experiences, with a third volume will be published presenting the discussions and insights from the AHELO Feasibility Study Conference (taking place in March 2013). The contents are: The rationale for an AHELO: higher education in the 21st century context; The beginning of AHELO: decisions and challenges; Design and management of the feasibility study; Instrument development; Implementation; Lessons learnt on design and implementation.
