    • U.S. Dept of Education is member of OECD Education Governing Board

Us feasibility study results
US Feasibility Study Results

  • Institutional participation

    • Extremely small, voluntary, non-representative sample, but still highly variable participation

      (hard to generalize domestically or internationally)

  • Student motivation and participation

    • Middling at 31% (719/2296), U.S. high of 68%

      ( highly variable internationally <10% to>95%)

  • Contextual factors dominate, highly variable across nations and difficult to examine


Ir challenges raised by ahelo
IR Challenges Raised by AHELO

  • Lack of consistency in institutional and national data on students and faculty

  • Limitations in institutional and system-level analytic capacities and variable interests

  • Theory-application gap—Disconnects between psychometric feasibility/requirements and practical limitations/policy applications

    • Relevance to teaching and learning

    • Implications for higher education policy


Should there be an ahelo be in our future then one participant s perspective
Should there be an AHELO be in our future, then—one participant’s perspective

  • Assessment needs focused purpose clearly understood and communicated

  • International input and development of assessment design and instruments

  • Greater involvement by data providers and explicit attention to ultimate users

  • Stronger international leadership, adequate financing and demonstrable value
