5.3 EDUCATIONAL SCIENCES
The presentation addresses the question of why international comparisons, e.g. rankings and benchmarking, have become so important for higher education. It looks at the thinking behind making comparisons, what kind of evidence we need to make valid comparisons and explore the basic questions of indicators, data, whether the process is fit-for-purpose, and the pitfalls in using comparative data.
