Defining Quality.
Harvey, Lee; Green, Diana
Assessment and Evaluation in Higher Education, v18 n1 p9-34 1993
The concept of quality in higher education is discussed, including ways of thinking about quality, its relevance to higher education, interrelationships, and philosophical/political bases. The relative nature of quality is examined, and five differing conceptualizations are identified: quality as exception, perfection, fitness for purpose, value for money, or transformative.
