Criteria for Type 1 evaluations: Quality assurance of studies and teaching according to ESG
For this type of evaluation, we usually use the appropriate ASIIN criteria as a benchmark, which also form the basis for the accreditation or certification of educational offers (programs, modules or courses) or of educational institutions. The procedural principles from these criteria documents are also applied - to the extent that they are transferable to evaluation.
- Maturity model for educational institutions, documented in the criteria for the award of the ASIIN System Seal - Framework Conditions for Good Teaching and Successful Learning / Criteria for the ASIIN System Seal, Requirements for Good Teaching and Successful Learning (institutional seal / system seal of the ASIIN)
- General quality criteria and professional qualification profiles for study programs documented in the criteria and procedures for the ASIIN seal of approval for study programs and the assigned so-called Fachspezifischen Ergänzende Hinweise (FEH)
- Quality criteria for modules and training courses are documented in the standards for the certification of further education offers of the ASIIN.
Furthermore, we would be happy to check for you whether we can design a Type 1 evaluation for a academic study program or your institution based on a set of criteria of a third party - e.g. a governmental or international institution. All criteria used for a Type 1 evaluation must be ESG-compliant. This conformity is checked by ASIIN during the preparatory phase. Under this approach, only evaluations that relate to academic study programs or universities can be carried out.
Instead of a seal or certificate, the conclusion of such an evaluation is an expert opinion that provides information on the extent to which the study program complies with the selected quality criteria or which weaknesses can be identified in this respect.
After our consultation with you, we will provide you with an offer for your evaluation assignment, which will include a description of the evaluation criteria used and the planned procedural steps.
Type 1 evaluations are subject to the ESG
For Type 1 evaluations, we organize the procedure for you in such a way that the standards and guidelines for quality assurance in the European Higher Education Area (ESG) are covered. In these cases, this also includes the publication of the evaluation reports.
