How IEP works

All evaluations carried out by the Institutional Evaluation Programme (IEP) are guided by four key questions, which are based on a ‘fitness for (and of) purpose’ approach:

  • What is the institution trying to do? (Mission and objectives)
  • How is the institution trying to do it? (Policies and processes)
  • How does the institution know it works? (Monitoring and evaluation)
  • How does the institution change in order to improve? (Capacity for change)

These simple but crucial questions provide a framework for a critical self-analysis during the self-evaluation phase and guide the evaluation team during the online meetings and the site visit. They are important throughout all stages of the evaluation process, which usually takes one academic year.

In May 2023, IEP held a webinar to provide an overview of the Institutional Evaluation Programme: evaluation team members explained its main characteristics and features, two recently evaluated institutions discussed their experience, and the secretariat provided some practical information. The recording of the webinar is available here.

In April 2018, IEP held a webinar to explore the impact that evaluations have had on participating institutions. The recording of the webinar is available here.

We, at Tomas Bata University have been extremely pleased with the quality of service received from the Institutional Evaluation Programme. The international evaluation team’s professional attitude and extraordinary communication ability made the whole evaluation process smooth and rewarding.
