A System for Ensuring the Quality of University Education: Course evaluation, reflection days, alumni evaluation and visiting committees
Book chapter, 2005

This text presents a system for quality assurance of university education which is used at the department of Technology Management and Economics at Chalmers University of Technology. To make sure that the students that graduate have the required knowledge and skill we use a number of interlinked instruments on different levels and during different time periods: 1) Examination, 2) Course evaluation, 3) Reflection days, 4) Internal Program evaluation with students in on-going programs and with students at graduation, 5) External Program evaluation which either is internally initiated (Visiting Committee, Alumni evaluation, Evaluation with the assistance of employers and supervisors for recently graduated) or Externally initiated, for example by the Board of Higher Education.
