Further considerations on a new indicator for higher education student performance

Risultato della ricerca: Conference contribution

Abstract

This paper joins the international debate on academic achievements; in particular, it offers some reflections about the suitable system of marks and their synthesis, since it is usually used as a performance academic student measure. Starting from a new measure proposed by Adelfio et al. (2014), this paper highlights the importance of the measure chosen in studying the determinants of the performance. The Italian University System is used as reference system in order to briefly recallthe need of the new measure and to make comparison between the current indicator and the proposed one on real data. Results highlight the importance of the choice of the proper performance measure, in order to take efficient policies aimed at improving student’s performance.
