UV Prepares for IQuAME

HERE ARE THE ANSWERS FOR THE ASSIGNMENT FOR THE 3rd week of November 2009. Remember to put it down in a half crosswise yellow paper.
IQuAME stands for Institutional Monitoring and Evaluation for Quality Assurance that is administered by CHED.

Schools who wish to attain autonomous status apply for it and set a schedule for a CHED visit whereby the school undergoes strict evaluation on four key areas:
1) Governance and management
2) Quality of teaching and research
3) Support for students
4) Relations with the community
5) Management of resources.

If the so-called “evidences” that the school compiles and shows matches with the criteria laid out by the Commission, then the subject school will most likely pass the acid test.

UV is applying for Category A (teaching) under IQuAME rules.
