Woodhouse, David (2004). The Quality of Quality Assurance Agencies, Quality in Higher Education. This paper traces some aspects of the growth over the last 20 years in the number of quality assurance agencies in higher education, that is, organisations with some responsibility for the quality of teaching, research and other activities in higher education institutions. Initially, staff of these agencies were largely amateurs in the field, and little theory or experience existed for the agencies to draw on. In 1991, agencies world-wide associated together in an International Network for mutual advice and support. Since then, the practice of quality assurance has developed the characteristics of a profession, and agencies have turned their attention to the quality of their own operations. The International Network of agencies has addressed the question 'what makes a good quality assurance agency?' This action is timely, because the increase in globalisation has increased the need for agencies to interact across national boundaries, and to do this effectively they must have confidence in each others' judgements.   [More]  Descriptors: Higher Education, Quality Control, Agency Role, Public Agencies

The current US educational system does not reflect the rapid pace of global change.
