What do we mean by 'confidence' in Enhancement-led institutional review reports?

confidence judgement A judgement by a QAA Enhancement-led institutional review (ELIR) team that 'there can be confidence in the institution's current, and likely future, management of the academic standards of its awards and the quality of the student learning experience it provides.' This is a positive judgement, indicating that the University has secure arrangements for managing academic standards and for assuring and enhancing the quality of the student
experience.

The alternative to a confidence judgement is for the QAA ELIR team to express either limited confidence or no confidence in the issues cited above.
