Abstract

This report shares the findings and lessons learned from an investigation into the economics of disaggregated
models for assessing and accrediting informal learners undertaking post secondary education. It presents
some key economic and governance challenges for universities to consider in implementing OER assessment
and accreditation policies. It also includes discussion of findings from a small-scale survey conducted by two
of the authors on perceptions, practices and policies relating to openness in assessment and accreditation
in post secondary institutions, with a particular focus on the OER universitas (OERu) concept.
