Title Keeping Pace with Growth: What data tell us about student outcomes in China
Author Xiaozhou (Emily) Zhou, Rachael Merola


Chinese higher education has grown tremendously in the past decade. The most recent data from the Chinese Ministry of Education shows that from 2005 to 2015 over 28.5 million undergraduate degrees were conferred in China. During that same period the proportion of bachelor’s degree holders among the urban workforce rose from 22% to 47.2%. Growth in higher education access is undeniable; the question remains as to whether student outcomes, success, and well-being are being tracked as a metric of higher education quality.
