Making progress QAA's review team draws a conclusion on the progress the provider has made following its previous review or monitoring visit against its action plan and on working with relevant external reference points. Conclusions follow criteria described in the handbooks for educational oversight reviews and reflect the provider's continuing management of academic standards, management and enhancement of the quality of learning opportunities, and the information it produces about the learning opportunities it offers.
There are four grades of conclusion:
- the provider is making commendable progress
- the provider is making acceptable progress
- the provider is making progress but further improvement is required
- the provider is not making acceptable progress.
