Quality of Education
The Decreto Autovalutazione, Valutazione, Accreditamento iniziale e periodico delle Sedi e dei Corsi di Studio (Decreto Ministeriale n. 987 del 12 dicembre 2016) establishes the rules concerning the Initial Quality of Education Assessment and the Recurring Quality of Education Assessment for all University programs in Italy.
The aforementioned Decreto Ministeriale also considers important issues related to Quality of Education established by the ANVUR (Agenzia Nazionale di Valutazione del Sistema Universitario e della Ricerca) with specific reference to the following documents: "Linee Guida per l’accreditamento iniziale dei Corsi di Studio di nuova attivazione da parte delle Commissioni di Esperti della Valutazione (CEV)" and "Accreditamento periodico delle sedi e dei corsi di studio universitari - linee guida".
The DM 47/2013 (modified as in DM 1059/2013) establishes the rules governing the AVA system (Autovalutazione - Valutazione - Accreditamento) for all University Programs. The DM 987/2016 modified the original AVA system and introduce the AVA2 system which is applicable since January 2017.
