Measuring and Comparing Achievements of Learning Outcomes in Higher Education in Europe (CALOHEE)

Description:

The EU funded project CALOHEE will help to find the answers to these questions by developing the infrastructure that will eventually make it possible to test bachelor and master students’ performance Europe-wide across a range of fields in a way that satisfies the needs of the various stakeholders in the European higher education community.

The project covers five subject areas, representing five significant academic domains: Engineering (Civil Engineering), Health Care (Nursing), Humanities (History), Natural Sciences (Physics) and Social Sciences (Education). The methodology to be developed should also be applicable for other fields of study.

The frameworks to be developed in these fields will use the same methodology, but they will be tailored to the characteristics of each domain or subject area, taking into account the diversity of missions, orientations and profiles of universities in Europe and their various degree programmes.

The project started in January 2016 and first results are expected in spring 2017 and it is co-financed by the European Commission in the framework of ERASMUS+.

Partnership

The Consortium holds different types of members, full partners, advisory members and Inner and Outer Circle members of the five subject area groups. Besides these partners and members, organisations are involved having the status of observer.
