Educational Research and Reviews, v10 n3 p282-289 Feb 2015
Quality standards are evaluated by the Higher Educational Institutions by self evaluation at different levels and are also assessed by external agencies. Application of quality standards in administrative practices have been associated with the quality of higher education. To improve the quality of administrative practices, evaluation scales are applied and the outcomes in terms of Quality perceived by the students and the higher level of satisfaction is evaluated. It is observed that the quality of implementation of standards and administrative practices adopted in various institutions needs care and consideration. There is lack of quality because all the policies and standards are adopted to the maximum in terms of mission and vision and the process of quality achieved is not adequate and permanent. Even-though accreditation provides quality assurance that the academic aims and objectives of the institution are honestly pursued and effectively achieved by the resources available, and the institutions may demonstrate the capabilities of ensuring effectiveness of the educational standards during the validity period, the lack of quality in terms of satisfactory level of students is observed in appropriate scales. In this paper findings of quality are evaluated using the same common factors used by accreditation.
