Assessment is an important topic in education and career opportunities exist for students to develop expertise in the technical and policy implications of testing and standards-setting.

Research at OUCEA looks at new approaches to educational assessment and the challenge presented by the increasing requirement for global qualifications and standards. The research programme is intended to cover general schools-based learning, as well as vocational, professional and higher education and support the move to lifelong learning, the needs of multinational employers and an increasingly global workforce.

Students wishing to pursue a DPhil at OUCEA can apply to the Department of Education.
