Composition of & judgements by assessment panels
The members of an assessment panel are independent and expert. The NVAO requirements regarding the composition of such panels are based on the Standards and Guidelines for Quality Assurance in the European Higher Education Area.
NVAO may decide to impose an improvement period if it is of the opinion that the educational quality can be remedied within a foreseeable period of time. The assessment following an improvement period is conducted by a panel that comprises a student-member. The NVAO requirements regarding the composition of such a panel are based on the Standards and Guidelines for Quality Assurance in the European Higher Education Area (European Standards and Guidelines, ESG) and formulated in the spirit of the requirements to be met by such panels at the European level in higher education.
ASSESSMENT PANELS REVIEWING ASSESSMENT CLUSTERS
NVAO requires the assessment panel to substantiate, in a verifiable manner, how it has arrived at its judgement – and how this judgement, in a comparative sense, fits into the aggregate assessments within the cluster.
SECRETARY AND CHAIR
The panel chair is also trained on the basis of the NVAO profile for panel chairs.
