                        QUESTIONNAIRE
                        =============

                            on

                Institutional Evaluation and Accreditation System(s)
                in Higher Education
                ===============================================

        Following the recent approval of the Low on Accreditation on Academic
Evaluation and Accreditation in Romania, CEPES-UNESCO has launched, under the
auspices of the World Bank, and with the agreement of the Romanian Ministry of
Education, two pilot-projects in the field.
        The main objectives are to assess and test various evaluation
mechanisms on different types of higher education institutions, as well as to
improve the methodology of the evaluation procedure(a problem all countries in
Central and Eastern Europe are facing), including the methodology for granting
a national diploma.

        We would very much appreciate if you could assist us in the
accomplishment of this extremely difficult task by accepting an exchange of
information on the following questions:

        1.  Have you implemented an/more evaluation system(s) of higher
            education in your country?
            .........................................................

        2.  If Yes, what kind of system is it: governmental/nongovernmental?
            .........................................................
            .........................................................

        3.  Does the evaluation/accreditation of an institution take place at
            the latter's request? Who supports its cost?
            .........................................................
            .........................................................

        4.  Are performance indicators used in this procedure? Which factors
            are involved in the elaboration of these indicators?
            .........................................................
            .........................................................

        5.  In the evaluation process, do you distinguish between quality
            assurance and quality control? Who is in charge of accomplishing
            each of them?
            .........................................................
            .........................................................

        6.  Does your Evaluation Board/Comittee have any permanent members?
            If yes, how many? Which is their term of office?
            .........................................................
            .........................................................

        7.  Is it compulsory to resort to foreign evaluators in this process?
            .........................................................
            .........................................................
            .........................................................

        8.  To whom is the evaluation report submitted by the Board/Comittee?
            .........................................................
            .........................................................

        9.  Is the report made public?
            .........................................................
            .........................................................

        10. To what extent could the minister of education make use of the
            results of this report in the implementation of appropiate
            policies and strategies of action, particularly in the financing
            of higher education?
            .........................................................
