Self-assessment - overview

Tertiary education organisations (TEOs) are responsible for using self-assessment to maintain and improve their own quality and the outcomes they achieve for their learners and wider stakeholders, especially employers.

Self-assessment focuses on:

  • identifying, responding to and meeting learner and stakeholder needs
  • evaluating the effectiveness of organisational processes and practices
  • using the understanding gained to make real, worthwhile improvements to outcomes and learner achievement.

NZQA does not prescribe how tertiary organisations do this, as every organisation is different, but has published evaluation indicators as a common guide for TEOs and NZQA to reach consistent evidence-based judgements.

TEO self-assessment information provides the evidence base for all the quality assurance processes.
