The EEC is expected:
- to verify the objectivity of information appearing in the application for programmatic/departmental/institutional evaluation submitted by the higher education institution, checking, where necessary, the original data collected for evaluation purposes;
- to assess and evaluate, quantitatively and qualitatively, the results of the work done by the academic unit and to compare it with current, internationally accepted best practices;
- to advise and suggest specific alternative practices and improvements.
The members of EECs study and comment on the application for programmatic/departmental/institutional evaluation, they participate in the committee’s meetings and in the site visit, may request additional information, and they discuss their findings; they contribute to the formulation of the report and share collectively the overall responsibility for the external evaluation report.
