Performance Monitoring Indicators
Primarily, the Quality Assurance System makes reference to indicators identified by ANVUR (National Agency for the Evaluation of Universities and Research Institutes).
The Quality Supervision Board plays a key role in the realisation of the Quality Assurance (QA) System. The Research Assessment Committee (CVR) is a technical board of 15 members, one for each subject area taught in the University.
For teaching, the Quality Supervision Board provides course coordinators with a series of indicators regarding students’ academic careers, in order to monitor course progress. For research, instead the Research Assessment Committee (CVR) defines and periodically updates the standards, parameters and criteria to analyse and assess the University’s research.
The University of Trieste has also initiated a self-assessment programme using specific questionnaires to analyse its ability to respond to the needs of different stakeholders, above all the students. The aim is:
- to complete the monitoring of the quality of teaching and services and to highlight strengths and weaknesses;
- to identify appropriate measures to improve weaknesses.
