Il libro

In this book, we deal with a broad spectrum of indicators aimed at measuring the effectiveness of higher education in Italy. Education effectiveness may be defined as the extent to which a students’ education is fit for its intended purpose. Internal effectiveness is considered the learning of students evaluated before, or at the time of completion of a study programme. If effectiveness is measured in the business world or in civil society at large, it takes into account production or social outcomes of graduates, and is referred to as “external”. In this book, we discuss indicators that focus on the external effectiveness of university education in order to evaluate study programmes, and the policies that can improve both education and student services. All our indicators are based on data collected from graduates. Had this book had a subtitle, it would have been “the power of graduates to inform on higher education effectiveness”.
