Five international companies will be invited to participate in a tender to define the entity that will carry out the international evaluation of the PSU.
The Council of Rectors unanimously approved a protocol to regulate the international evaluation process of the University Selection Test (PSU). Within the framework of this decision, it was agreed together with the Ministry of Education to invite five international entities of the highest level to participate in this bidding process.
The companies that it was decided to call are: CITO, Australian Council for Educational Research, ACT Research and Policy Reports, The Israeli National Institute for Testing and Evaluation, and Pearson, which we expect to present their proposals at the end of April.
"We opted for this selection of companies due to their high qualification and international experience. Likewise, the entity that is selected will have, within the framework of this process, a technical committee, its technical counterpart, in charge of coordinating all the information that the Council of Rectors, as well as each of the universities, ensuring the confidentiality of the information that is sent, "explained the executive vice president of CRUCH, Víctor Pérez Vera.
MEETING WITH STUDENTS
Before the plenary session, the Council of Rectors met with spokespersons from the Chilean Student Confederation, Confech, to share information on the issues being discussed within the framework of the announced higher education reform.
"The Government has indicated that this is the year of higher education, therefore, we hope that in the proposals made on education issues we will include both the universities of the Council of Rectors and the university students," said Juan Manuel Zolezzi, rector of the Usach.
