Ordinamenti didattici a confronto: i percorsi di laurea in «Sapienza» Università di Roma

Guido Benvenuto, Alessandra Decataldo, Antonio Fasanella


A Comparison of Didactics Orders: Degree Courses at «Sapienza » University of Rome.

The Italian university system has for several decades been seen as an over-dispersive one. Issues such as the delay in studies, the low number of graduates and the inadequate links with the job market feature in the country’s political, social and academic debates. The problematic areas concern, on the one hand, effectiveness (defined as the achievement of objectives) and, on the other hand, efficiency (interpreted as the ratio between outcomes and costs incurred). This article discusses the issue of tertiary education system productivity, reporting data of a research on Rome’s «Sapienza» University and comparing them with those available at national and international level (which shows that Italy has one of the lower rates of young graduates, scoring values of about 20 percentage points lower than the average of the OECD countries).The research considered a secondary analysis of longitudinal data on the careers of cohorts enrolled in ten years relating to the 509/1999 pre-reform period (academic years 1991/1992 through 2000/2001) and six post-reform years (academic years 2001/2002 through 2006/2007), proposing a new methodological instrument (multidimensional representations).The paper analyzes the obtaining of a university degree and, through a longitudinal perspective, provides a different comparative «reading» of the university system before and after the introduction of the university reform.
