Abstract


Background/Objectives: The aim of the study is to identify meaningful evaluation and approaches to building a model of the system of monitoring education quality and quality assurance at the university. Methods: The research methodology is based on a pedagogical qualimetry approach revealing a nature and characteristics of education quality, principles and methods for education monitoring, domestic and international theoretical foundations of independent evaluation of higher education quality. Findings: The international context of the changes specified by networks of agents-intermediaries Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology (ABET) in the Washington Accord – an “American” model, EUR-ACE Framework Standard – a “European model”, the International Energy Agency (IEA) International organization and European Network for Accreditation of Engineering Education (ENAEE), the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) Engineer register have determined the new content for improving the quality of higher education in the activities of the Trans-Baikal State University as a supporting institution in the region. The objectives and mechanisms for the implementation of international requirements of independent quality evaluation in the supporting institution in the region indicate the search for management solutions for the study and introduction of international experience considered as a base for creating a new educational practice of monitoring of education quality and quality assurance at the university in accordance with the criteria and standards of the Russian Association for Engineering Education. Applications/Improvements: The result of the study is the model of the system of monitoring of education quality and quality assurance at the university, built on the basis of theoretical research.
