Assessment of Higher Education Learning Outcomes

Dossier description

The OECD is carrying out a Feasibility Study for the Assessment of Higher Education Learning Outcomes (AHELO). The purpose of this Feasibility Study is to see if it is practically and scientifically feasible to assess what students in higher education know and can do upon graduation.


More than a ranking, the AHELO assessment aims to be direct evaluation of student performance at the global level and valid across diverse cultures, languages and different types of institutions.


A full scale AHELO would be a “low stakes” voluntary international comparative assessment designed to provide higher education institutions with feedback on the learning outcomes of their students and which they can use to foster improvement in student learning outcomes.
