The Quality Assessment Division

In June 2003 the Council for Higher Education (CHE) decided to establish a system for quality assessment of Israeli higher education with the aim of:

 

I. Improving the quality of higher education in Israel.

 

II. Strengthening the awareness to the quality assessment process and developing internal mechanisms in the institutions of higher education, that would continually evaluate the academic quality.

 

III. Ensuring the continual integration of the Israeli academic system within the global academic systems.

The four stages in the model for quality assessment determined by the Council for Higher Education are:

 

  1. A self-evaluation process at the institutions being examined, accompanied by the preparation of a self-study report
  2.  Quality assessment of the study program at the institutions being examined, carried out by an external committee appointed by the CHE, whose work will be based on the self-evaluation reports and visits to the institutions. , At the conclusion of the evaluation process, the committee will present a summary report to the CHE.
  3.  Discussion and decision-making by the CHE.
  4.  Publication of the CHE’s decisions. The Council also decided that for the first years of its operation the Quality Assessment Unit will only evaluate study-programs and disciplines, postponing assessment at the institutional level until a future date.
