Accreditation Assures Program Quality And Continuous Improvement
The faculty and students of ISAT are committed to the continuous process of self-examination to ensure that we are meeting the highest standards of rigor and relevance in our pursuit of educational excellence. In its self-examination process, the program has been using a two-loop evaluation process. The two loops represent complementary quality assurance and improvement processes. The right loop deals with the assessment of Program Outcomes through the curriculum delivered and what the students learn, according to established metrics and criteria. The assessment should indicate to what degree the program is achieving its educational mission and program goals and objectives. The left loop represents the continuous process for establishing and improving the educational objectives outcome metrics, and evaluation methods incorporating feedback and results from outcome-based assessment that occurs in the right loop.
