In the month of May the list of Key Indicators and related Key Performance Indicators for IQA have been finalized. The key indicators were used for preparing the surveys which all partners have sent out to students, employees, students, and many more stakeholders.
Thus, the first milestone in this project: to collect data from the stakeholders has been reached. The purpose of these questionnaires is to analyze the perception of the quality of an HEI’s internal quality assurance system from the view of different stakeholders.
Data will be analyzed with a view to identifying differences in perception between EU and Russian/Aserbaidschan Higher Education Institutions.
As laid out in the initial presentation, this “baseline study” aims at “...identifying the efficient student-centered approaches in IQA, also to identify the level of satisfaction of students by their universities, as well as a level of satisfaction of employers by the graduates.”
Also, another survey is planned to measure the overall outcome after the implementation of the project.
The next step is to analyze the data of the survey and to finalize WP 1. Afterward, we would start with WP2.
