Innovation and Productivity Roundtables: A Response

In this section, we address concerns raised in the consultations about dichotomies between standardization and innovation, and argue that there are ways that we can ensure consistency in learning outcomes across the system without infringing on institutional autonomy or academic freedom. We also recommend once more that the CLA be introduced in Ontario using samples of students from each institution, not as a standardized test. Finally, we recognize the value of the government setting priorities for the transformation of Ontario’s post-secondary system, and holding it accountable for achieving these priorities.
