It is the means through which the University assures itself: Of the standards of programs to be offered by the colleges. That students will be provided with an educational and learning experience of high quality. QMS

If carried out properly and attentively, program approval: Verifies the academic standards for the program Establishes safeguards for academic quality Ensures that programs meet national and University requirements and therefore international expectations. QMS

20 Program Evaluation and Review - Whose responsibility?

21 QMS Guidance Essential reference documents are:
NCAAA Standards for Quality Assurance and Accreditation for Higher Education Institutions The National Qualifications Framework (NQF) QMS Handbook QMS

22 Periodic Review The basis upon which ALL programs are updated to remain current, and reflect today’s world! The basis upon which a substantive review can reflect upon the changing resources that are available The basis upon which a detailed scrutiny at the range of inputs to the process is undertaken … especially external inputs! QMS

23 This requires… systematic collection of feedback from students, which includes their views on the clarity of LOs and the extent to which they have been achieved properly specified annual review processes, requiring reflection informed by evidence such as student feedback, assessment pass rates, changes in the professional environment, etc, Resulting action plan and monitoring actions implemented QMS

24 And… ‘ownership’ of the program review by all staff involved in teaching consideration of annual reports by Academic Affairs Quality Assurance Committee, with feedback Colleges and program teams on key points including coverage of ILOs. QMS
