self-assessment report

Quick Reference

Documents produced annually by all providers of post‐compulsory education as part of their quality assurance process. In larger institutions, those written at individual programme level contribute to programme area reports, which in turn feed into departmental reports, on which the organization's summary report is based. This summary will contain the following: an introduction, focusing on key improvements since the previous review of post‐inspection development or action plans; information on progress on performance measures in the development of action plans; key strengths and areas for improvement for the institution, organized under the headings of the key questions of the Common Inspection Framework (CIF), and for each curriculum area, where practicable; a table of grades awarded to CIF key questions and curriculum areas; and a summary of grades awarded for the observation of teaching, learning, and assessment. See also college self‐assessment.
