Quality assurance and monitoring and evaluation strategy CUD Zaragoza strictly follows the rules and regulations of the Bologna Process within the framework of the European Union. CUD’s syllabus is approved by the Agencia Nacional de la Evaluación de la Calidad y Acreditación - ANECA (National Agency for Quality Assessment and Accreditation) that is the agency at a national level in charge of the Spanish universities’ quality syllabuses. Since 2010, the local agency ENQA is ACPUA - Agencia de Calidad y Prospectiva Universitaria de Aragón. The function of the ACPUA is to guarantee and promote the quality of the university system of Aragon. For this, the agency carries out technical tasks of evaluation, certification and accreditation. In CUD: CUD Zaragoza´s quality indicators:
In-process: The PACE-SGIC Program of the ACPUA certifies the implementation of an internal quality assurance system in a university center. PACE-SGIC is a voluntary program. The main objective of this program is to generate sufficient confidence in the centers and in their ability to provide quality training that guarantees the satisfaction of the needs and expectations of the students and of the society. This confidence will be supported by transparent public information and accountability.
Therefore, the participation of the different stakeholders is necessary and essential in this internal quality system; in our center, Annual Financial Statements, Equality plan and Gender Perspective, or Anti-fraud policy are some examples. Certification of the implementation of the Internal Quality Assurance System is an essential requirement for centers to apply for initial institutional accreditation. CUD Zaragoza has designed the evaluation methods for each subject that are based on Continuous Assessment, Activities of Evaluation, Instruments of Evaluation, and Final Exams. In language learning, in addition to the above-mentioned, the evaluation has a reference to the Common European Framework of Reference for languages – CEFRL equivalent to the Standardization Language Profile based on STANAG 6001 – NATO. CUD Zaragoza’s syllabus can be followed also via the Internet as all the subjects have been thought to be followed online in blended learning or purely online. The band capacity is wide and connection to the Internet is 100% operable.
