  • ACU Spotlight No 3 - Evaluating impact: measuring the impact of HE development Reports
  • Part of the ACU Spotlight series of briefing papers on international HE matters. The pressure to measure outcomes of higher education interventions has intensified in recent years. It is also part of a wider shift towards a culture of accountability, quantification and target-setting, leading to the fundamental question of whether higher education interventions can be effectively and convincingly measured in terms of their development impact. This paper highlights some of the issues and complexities associated with this question drawing on the proceedings of a seminar held in March on Measuring the Impact of International Scholarships (MIIS) and a more broadly themed conference on Measuring Impact of Higher Education for Development (MIHED), organised by the London International Development Centre (LIDC) in partnership with the ACU.
