In Japan, the education system has had more and more focus on learning achievements than before because Japanese government have to take more responsibility for justifying the national budget for education, and also because the maturity and the variation of academic skills and generic skills are becoming diverse among university students due to the globalization. As you might know, the financial situation of Japanese Government has been getting worse. Accordingly, discussions on the measurement method of learning achievements are intense. The assessment for generic skills, which is called PROG (Progress Report on Generic Skills), is one of the most popular measurement methods of learning achievements among institutions of higher education in Japan, as it has been recognized to be a unique assessment securing objectivity and the ease of operation. We would like to introduce PROG itself, and the use case of PROG, which had been applied for the measurement of the achievement of international PBL, outlining PROG’s distinctive features of measurement method and the validity of its outcomes.
