    Institutional approaches to self-evaluation (IASE): Project report

    Publication date:Sep-2013


    Higher education institutions in Scotland evaluate their learning and teaching in a variety of formal and informal ways. These self-evaluation processes have been essential components in the development of the Quality Enhancement Framework (QEF) in Scotland since its inception in 2003 and were the subject of a sector-wide project, 'Institutional approaches to self-evaluation' (IASE), commissioned by QAA Scotland to run during the academic year, 2012-13.


    This is the report of that project: it describes the background to the IASE project and its aims, scope and methodology; it summarises the project's results and discusses their significance, and suggests areas for further investigation.
