In Newsletter 19, reference was already made to the 2012 OECD PISA reports. In its recent HE Quarterly Brief, the OECD has now published a brief analysis of relevant elements for HE in the PISA 2012 reports.

The analysis identifies 5 recommended actions for HE that may improve HE quality in significant ways: *) joint SE-HE transition programmes, *) pre-entry analysis of skills deficiencies and bridging programmes to address these, *) addressing financial access barriers, *) offer of diversified HE programmes, and *) improved student-tracking systems.
