Abstract

This final chapter of the edited volume "The International Standard Classification of Education (ISCED-97): An Evaluation of Content and Criterion Validity for 15 European Countries" puts forward some suggestions on how progress in the measurement of educational attainment for cross-national research could be made. The suggestions involve 1) the refinement of the ISCED-97 in a future revision, 2) the enhancement of nationally specific measures of educational attainment, and 3) the amelioration of coding procedures in cross-national surveys.
