Why they support AHELO

"We at Lumina Foundation are very interested in developing effective ways to measure what college students are actually learning. Establishing these measurable learning outcomes is a vital step in ensuring that institutions best meet the needs of students, the workforce and society as a whole. There is no doubt that higher education in the United States - as elsewhere-faces significant, persistent challenges in its efforts to foster and ensure equity. The gap between Americans with college degrees and those without college degrees has always been too wide, and it's actually getting wider. So closing the achievement gap isn't just a nice thing to do, it's also the smart thing to do. If assessing learning outcomes internationally helps us to do that, as AHELO endeavors, then I'm all for it."

Jamie Merisotis, President, Lumina Foundation for Education

 

"A widely accepted measurement system which could assess, across countries, what undergraduate students know and can do would be an exceptionally valuable tool in assessing how higher education institutions and systems perform by reference to international benchmarks. Current systems of comparison, while providing valuable insights into performance, suffer from important deficiencies. In addition, the process of evaluation against clear and relevant metrics would give HEIs an incentive to focus on outcomes and a better sense of where they should put their resources and energies. The ALELO project offers the prospect of achieving these outcomes which is why Ireland is happy to support this pilot project."
