Quality Assurance in Higher Education in the Russian Federation. Papers on Higher Education.
Kouptsov, O.; Tatur, Y.
The major aspects of the Russian educational system were examined in terms of quality assurance. No part of the educational system in Russia is small enough to escape some form of assessment, measurement, comparison, audit, or classification as to quality. To describe the quality control system, the book begins with an overview of Russian education, especially higher education, using the 1997 International Standard Classification of Education as a point of departure. Chapter 1 describes higher education and quality assurance in the Russian Federation. Chapter 2 discusses the contemporary quality assurance system in Russian education. The quality assurance system in the Russian Federation has these components: (1) the admissions system to higher education; (2) the course programs; (3) the teaching staff; (4) research; (5) social, economic, and material conditions for the teaching and learning process; and (6) various mechanisms of quality assessment. The evaluation indicates that the quality control system now in place, although in need of improvement, contributes to the quality of Russian higher education and science.
