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
