Recognising access : an account of the formation and implementation of the national framework for the recognition of access courses by Pat Davies( Book )

1 edition published in 1993 in English and held by 44 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book focuses on the past, present, and future of the national framework for the recognition of access courses in the United Kingdom. Chapter 1 is an introduction that discusses framework studies and framework features. Chapter 2 is a review of the bodies appointed to plan and oversee the scheme at the center, including an examination of the perspectives and perceptions of the major players. The evolution of the enterprise is reviewed in terms of four developmental stages or phases: preliminary, planning, operational, and review. Chapter 3 is an account of the implementation of the venture that is based mainly on five case studies of agencies authorized to recognize access courses on behalf of the central authorities. Topics include the following: mandate, structure, and resourcing of authorized validating agencies (AVAs); roles and relationships; quality assurance mechanisms; and curriculum issues. Chapter 4 is a concluding commentary of the character, influence, and direction of the framework. The introduction of the framework is evaluated in terms of the original purposes and principles established to guide the formation and implementation of the scheme. Appendixes include information on origins, methods, and outcomes; chronology of events, 1987-92; and brief outlines of the five case study AVAs. Contains 33 references. (Ylb)
Towards a methodology for comparative quality assessment in European higher education : a pilot study on economics in Germany, the Netherlands and the United Kingdom by John Brennan( Book )

1 edition published in 1992 in English and held by 43 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This study assessed the possibility of providing valid and reliable comparisons of the quality of higher education across national lines. The study compared college economics programs in Germany, the Netherlands, and the United Kingdom in a two stage process. First descriptive information about systems and study programs was gathered and analyzed. Second, an international peer review of selected study programs was conducted by economics experts who formed an international peer committee and met during a 2-day meeting to discuss documentation prepared in the first stage. Analysis concluded that the process did obtain a balanced view of the study programs. Peers also thought that the review meeting only partly reached its objectives and that a series of meetings rather than one session would be more effective. A conclusion of the peer review group was that the within-country differences were so large as to make it difficult to assume the national level to be homogeneous enough to use it as the level of comparison. Therefore, the appropriate level of comparison appeared to be at the study program level rather than at the national level. Appendixes contain peer review reports, documentation prepared for the peer review, and peer review evaluation forms. (Contains 42 references.) (Jb)
