External review of ANECA 2012
Standards and Guidelines for Quality Assurance in the European Higher Education Area (ESG) provide that quality assurance agencies should carry out an external review every 5 years. Regarding the positive evaluation of ANECA in 2007 by the European Association for Quality Assurance in Higher Education (ENQA), the aim of ANECA’s review in 2012 is to confirm compliance with these criteria.
The 'Self-Evaluation Report' of ANECA, based on the Term of References defined by the Agency, is the background (reference) document for the process, which includes the reflection that the Agency performed to assess and contextualize their level of compliance with the ENQA’s requirements. Subsequently, in September, will take place an assessment visit by an external review panel of international experts appointed by the European association of agencies (ENQA).
ENQA Board reconfirmed Full membership of the Spanish Agency for Quality Assessment and Accreditation on 19 December 2012:
Analyzing all the information gathered in the self-evaluation report marked the starting point of this evaluation process. The Agency itself values and sets in a context its level of compliance with ENQA requirements. Subsequently, on September 2012, an international expert group appointed by ENQA visited ANECA.
