The Move to Quality Assurance in Chinese Higher Education: Tensions between Policy and Practices
Huang, Xian-Han; Adamson, Bob; Lee, John Chi-Kin
London Review of Education, v12 n3 p286-299 Nov 2014
This paper investigates quality assurance in Chinese higher education by looking at the Evaluation of the University Baccalaureate Programmes Project (EUBPP) conducted in China. It analyses factors that bring about tensions between policy and practice in this area through a study of two contrasting tertiary institutions. The results show that the aims of the EUBPP have been partly achieved through the interaction of policy-making and implementation. In the process, contextual factors connected to institutional status and stages of development have led to varying degrees of tension between policy and practices.
