Reviews

Quality Promotion and Assurance (QPA) conducts reviews of programmes, disciplines, schools and divisions as part of the quality management system. These reviews focus on the systems, strategies and resources for quality management of the core functions of teaching and learning, research and community engagement. They take place place every five years or more often if circumstances warrant it.

Reviews are guided by the QPA Principles and Procedures for Quality Reviews. Terms of reference for each review is developed and these guide the unit under review to analyse and reflect on its quality management arrangements. Developing a Self-Evaluation Report (SER), is an integral part of the review process. This is intended to be developmental process and calls for critical self-reflection and an analysis of present processes and procedures.

The SER is then validated by a panel of peers or experts as part of the review process. The panel uses interviews, document reviews and observations to validate the claims made in the SER. This results in a report outlining the commendations and recommendations as reflected by the review panel. The commendations highlight the good practices that are shared among academics and the recommendations highlight the areas that need improvement. An improvement plan is then developed to address the recommendations.
