A successful external evaluation from the United Kingdom

52

Academia was once again successful on an standard verification visit from Great Britain.
The subject of this 2-day standard verification visit was the evaluation of the implementation of the HND Business program (in Slovene: Ekonomist) in the Slovenian language.
What is the BTEC standard verification visit?
The BTEC standard verification visit is a regular overview of the activities of the Higher Vocational College of Academia Maribor in the implementation of the BTEC Higher National Diploma Programs.
The program evaluation takes place 2 times a year and includes:

  • sampling of exams and project assignments,
  • review of quality assurance documentation,
  • conversation with students,
  • reporting findings to school management.

The key subject of the evaluation is the sampling of exams and project assignments. The review is conducted in such a way that an independent external evaluator from the UK first randomly selects a sample of students and subjects, and then reviews the achieved learning outcomes in the exams and project assignments. This ensures that students achieve the learning outcomes of the study program and that the obtained grades are relevant and internationally comparable to the issue of diploma papers.
