Keynote Speeches
Theme: A turning point in the connection between high school and university in Japan
Speaker: Takao Sasaki (Project Professor, Graduate School of Public Policy, Hokkaido University)
The “Japan style high school-university connection,” which lacks a common grasp of academic ability in the educational connection from high school to university and relies on the grasp of academic ability necessary for connecting to university entrance examinations, is facing a crisis as a system due to (1) the flexibility of the high school curriculum, and (2) “non-academic ability selection” and “entrance examinations for a small number of subjects.” The “High School-University Connection Test (tentative name)” aims to make a systemic shift in response to such a crisis. It is necessary to build an infrastructure for connecting high school and university centered on the “completion of general education” with goal-based achievement tests, and to ensure the quality of secondary and higher education at the level of a knowledge-based society.
