The Hazara University established the Directorate of Quality Enhancement (DQE) on July 8, 2009, initially it was named as Quality Enhancement Cell (QEC) but later on in 2016 the syndicate changed the name as Directorate of Quality Enhancement (DQE). The work plan was scheduled by the appointments of the new Director and Assistant Director in this cell from May 14, 2010. The DQE is to introduce and implement the systematic standards and procedures for improving high quality education that positively impacts the students. To achieve this goal Higher Education Commission (HEC) has developed methods for assessing the quality of Academic Programs. It is also to monitor and evaluate the various aspects of project, service, or facility, and also to ensure that standards of quality are being met. The quality is the mean through which an institution can guarantee with confidence and certainly that the standards of its educational provisions are being maintained and enhanced. The Academic Quality Assurance concepts and practices are being developed and adopted in several education systems across the world. The HEC Pakistan has introduced the clear guidelines on a Self Assessment Process to be followed by the institutions as an initial step for the improvement of existing educational system. The Self Assessment is an important tool for academic quality assurance and provides feedback for faculty and administration to initiate action plans for improvement. The process culminates when assessment results are used to improve student learning. A successful assessment program includes the following:

  • Purpose identification
  • Outcomes identification
  • Measurements and evaluation design
  • Data collection
  • Analysis and evaluation
  • Decision-making regarding actions to be taken.
