What is SR ?
The aims and learning outcomes contained in the self-evaluation provide an important reference point for SR. Reviewers evaluate the quality of education in the department(s) under review according to the aims and learning outcomes aspired to by the subject team. Reviewers do not use any externally set standards against which the programmes are judged.
In both Institutional Review (IR) and SR, there will be one overall judgment concerning either the university's QA systems (IR), or the quality of provision in the department concerned (SR).
There will be three options open to the review team in making this judgment.
- Limited Confidence
- No Confidence
In addition to the overall judgment, review teams will provide a separate judgment of each SR aspect. The review team will summarize its findings in each aspect, noting strengths, good practice and weaknesses.
At the end of each aspect, team will use one of three judgments.
