In higher education, greater emphasis is being placed on innovation, improving the quality of teaching and learning, the measurement of performance and learning outcomes, access and regional competitiveness. The OECD programme on Institutional Management in Higher Education (IMHE) brings together higher education institutions and governments to share best practices, ideas and potential models to meet these challenges through networks, studies and research.

  • The aim is to explore the feasibility of measuring higher education quality across different institutions, countries, languages and cultures. The idea is to provide better information on teaching and learning quality than is currently available to higher education institutions, governments, and other stakeholders including students and employers.

    10. 10. AHELO at a glance To evaluate whether reliable cross-national assessments of HEGoal? learning outcomes are scientifically possible and whether their implementation is feasible.What? A research approach to provide a proof of concept and practicality.Why? Outcomes used to assist countries to decide on the next steps. Phase 1 - Development of tools: January 2010 to June 2011When? Phase 2 - Implementation: March 2011 to December 2012 Data will be collected from a targeted population of students who areWho? near, but before, the end of their first 3-4 year degree.

    11. 11. AHELO: The aimsTest the science of the assessment• Whether it is possible to devise an assessment, as well as associated contextual data, that enables reliable statements to be made about the performance/effectiveness of learning in institutions of very different types and in countries with different cultures and languagesTest the practicality of implementation• Whether it is possible to motivate institutions and students to take part in such an assessment and find solutions to implement such an assessment
    12. 12. AHELO: Assessing scientific feasibilityQuestions such as :  Is it possible to develop instruments to capture learning outcomes that are perceived as valid in diverse national and institutional contexts?  Do the test items perform as expected and do the test results meet pre-defined psychometric standards of validity and reliability?  Is it possible to score higher-order types of items consistently across countries?  Is it possible to capture information on teaching and learning contexts that contribute to explaining differences in student performance?
    13. 13. AHELO: Assessing practical feasibilityQuestions such as :  How effective are strategies implemented at national/institutional level to secure institutional and student cooperation?  Can students be motivated to take part in such an assessment and take it seriously?  To what extent does the implementation of the feasibility study assessments bring benefits to participating HEIs?  To what extent does the implementation of the feasibility study contribute to demonstrating its value for the improvement of teaching and building support for an AHELO?
