Each week, CERIC is on the lookout for the latest reports related to career development. Here are four reports that we found interesting this week:
Canadian undergraduate and graduate students in Ontario will pay lower tuition fees in the 2019/2020 academic year compared with a year earlier, while students across the rest of the country will either pay the same tuition fees as last year or more. International student tuition fees were up 7.6% at the undergraduate level and up 4.4% at the graduate level.
Scaling Up: Value-added Cognitive Assessment Redesign Network for the Development of Higher-order Thinking (HEQCO)
The Cognitive Assessment Redesign project is an institution-wide, network-based study focusing on the development and assessment of cognitive skills in undergraduate education. The purpose of this research was to examine the relationship between course assessment, standardized rubrics and a standardized test; determine the value-add between first- and final-year cognitive skills achievement; and investigate the effectiveness of a network approach to build capacity of instructors.
Education at a Glance provides data on the structure, finances and performance of education systems across OECD countries and a number of partner economies. The 2019 edition includes a focus on tertiary education with new indicators on tertiary completion rates, doctoral graduates and their labour market outcomes.
Large numbers of Canadian workers have skills mismatched to their jobs, and the problem looks set to worsen in face of technological changes and aging demographics, according to this report. The report notes that about 13% of Canadian workers are either over- or under-skilled for their job in terms of literacy, numeracy and problem-solving, with about half fitting into each category.
