Chapter 33: National performance assessment and accountability in higher education: lessons from Australia
Restricted access

Public universities in Australia have witnessed changes in performance assessment and accountability arrangements. The development of national performance assessment frameworks is seen as an essential step to ensure that universities have clarity and accountability around how their performance will be assessed, and how they can assess themselves in various dimensions of activities. This chapter provides two examples of contemporary national performance assessment frameworks in Australia: Quality Indicators for Learning and Teaching (QILT) and Excellence in Research for Australia (ERA). It presents some observations about the Australian experience, and discusses the impact of national performance assessments on universities and institutional research.
