The most important comments on Learning and Teaching
1. It is important to elaborate more with clear evidence and report about how
the Program achieved the Learning Outcomes at courses level and
Program level.
2. Sub-standards are need more clarifications with additional discussions and
evaluation and should contain a summary concerning each Program.
Clarify the use of KPIs with benchmarking and analysis. It is important to
link the discussion with suitable and updated evidences and these evidences
should be reported with specific details in the SSR.
3. KPIs’ information which reflects the success of the learning outcomes of the
Programs should be reported in details.
4. Programs should provide detailed report about benchmarks. Which KPIs
were being utilized in this benchmarks process?
5. Sub-standards 4.1, the overall Program learning outcomes should be
consistent with the NQF.
6.
Subsection 4.6 Quality of Teaching: Updated evidence is required on
quality of teaching.
7.
Reports on Employer Survey and Alumni Survey analysis are required.
8.
Results and statistics for Student Survey, Course Evaluation Surveys,
Students Experience Surveys, Alumni and graduates Surveys and
Employers Survey are required and should reported in details.
9.
The updated Program Five Year Plan must be enclosed with this SSR as
evidence and a point of reference.
10. Using the NCAAA KPI’s for standard (4) is highly recommended.
