How to write a self-evaluation report

The self-evaluation report is the basis for a programme assessment. It is the result of a critical and systematic analysis of the choices made by a programme. A self-evaluation report outlines a programme’s intended learning outcomes, it present its curriculum design and the environment in which it is offered, and it gives an overview of the procedures in place to assess students and to evaluate their results. It also contains an analysis of a programme’s strengths and weaknesses, in which good practice and points for further improvement are hightlighted.

A key task of the assessment panel is to verify the information provided in the self-evaluation report and, if required, to complement it during the site visit. Based on all information at its disposal, the panel assesses whether a programme meets the criteria for accreditation. Therefore, a self-evaluation report is central to the assessment process and it is expected to be transparent, comprehensible, complete and accurate.
