The Neglected Role of a Neglected Body: Academic Boards' Role in Assuring 'Equivalent' Standards
MetadataShow full item record
Australian universities are not able to demonstrate that they 'set standards for [their] qualifications which are equivalent to Australian and international standards'. As the Australian Universities Quality Agency makes clear in its audit manual and in several audit reports, this is a responsibility of universities themselves, typically of their academic boards. Furthermore, there are several indications that standards vary markedly between and within universities. This is unsatisfactory and the paper concludes by considering options for assuring that universities maintain similar standards.
