BOOK EXCERPT:

The latest volume in the Routledge International Studies in Higher Education series, Accountability in Higher Education takes an in-depth look at accountability initiatives around the world. Various evaluations, reporting schemes, and indicator systems have been initiated both to inform the public about higher education performance and to help transform universities and colleges and improve their functioning. This edited collection provides a comparative analysis of the promises, perils and paradoxes of accountability, and the potential effect on power structures and higher education autonomy, trust and the legitimacy of the sector. Part I describes how accountability is perceived and understood in different regions of the world, identifies some of the most common elements in established accountability initiatives, especially related to quality assurance, and provides direction for possible future development. Part II focuses on responses to new demands for accountability at institutional, national and international levels, and provides practical guidance for handling accountability going forward, emphasizing the dynamic relationship between international development, government strategies and organizational change. This volume is a must-have resource for HE managers, administrators, policy makers, researchers, HE graduate students and those interested or involved with HE accountability practices.

BOOK EXCERPT:

Whilst quality assessment is now very much a 'hot' issue, it is only within the last few years that such assessment within institutions of Higher Education has become the concern of outside organisations. This book is a practical manual for the design and development of systems of external quality assessment. The author highlights the dual function of EQA: quality improvement and greater accountability; demonstrates the importance of striking a good balance between these two elements in order to develop an effective EQA system. He also stresses the need for individual institutions to develop systems suited to their particular needs and bases his arguments on over five years' experience of working on EQA schemes in universities and colleges in the Netherlands, one of the first countries to develop such a system.
