Analysis of Three Frameworks for Quality Assurance in Sino-Foreign Cooperation for Running Schools
Chaocheng, Zhou
Chinese Education and Society, v42 n4 p97-107 Jul-Aug 2009
As economic globalization sweeps across the world, cross-border higher education cooperation has witnessed remarkable achievements. Quality improvements, however, have not stepped up accordingly due to reasons including imperfect and distorted policies, incomplete governance structures, and the absence of an effective internal quality assessment mechanism. The question of how to ensure quality has therefore become a key issue in standards for cooperation in school administration. Based on research into quality assurance systems, this paper conducts an analysis of the frameworks of law and policy at the national and governmental levels, of internal quality assurance at the school partners' level, and of international and regional quality assurance at supernational level, as well as their specific roles in education quality control.
