Project duration: 01/01/2016 - 31/12/2017
Principal investigator: Prof. Dr. Ingrid Kollak
Project staff: Steven Kranz
Partners: University of Groningen, International Tuning Academy
The EU-financed project "Measuring and Comparing Achievements of Learning Outcomes in Higher Education in Europe" (CALOHEE) aims to build infrastructures that allow the measurement and comparison of students' competences in bachelor’s and master’s programmes throughout Europe. About 100 universities from all EU countries are taking part in this study, which will last from 1/2016 until 12/2017. The project will focus on five main subject areas: Physics, Civil Engineering, Nursing, History and Education Sciences. The CALOHEE-project partners want to develop proposals for teaching and learning activities to achieve certain learning outcomes (specific and general competences) at the end of bachelor’s and master’s programmes.
