In the third round of external quality assessment, in case the assessment results of a certain institution does not meet the ONESQA standards, ONESQA provides the recommendations for the institution’s improvement to its parent organization to take due actions within the designated time period.
In case an educational institution is not awarded an accreditation or is awarded with conditions, that institution must submit a proposal of its quality development plan to its parent organization (and send a copy to ONESQA) for approval within 30 days after being notified of the assessment result. The parent organization has 30 days to make an objection. If there is no objection, the institution may request a re-assessment within 2 years since the submission of the proposal to the parent organization and ONESQA. If the institution does not proceed with this procedure, ONESQA will not conduct the re-assessment for that institution and will notify the Office of Basic Education Commission, Office of Vocational Education Commission, Office of Higher Education Commission, or other parent organizations applicable to that institution for further action to be taken.
In case of re-assessment for an educational institution that is not awarded an accreditation or is awarded with conditions, there are 2 approaches as follows:
1) In case the institution does not meet the criteria for quantitative assessment, it has to submit documents or evidence certified by the parent organization to ONESQA for adjustment of the results. ONESQA will not conduct a field visit.
2) In case the institution does not meet the criteria for qualitative assessment, ONESQA will perform a field visit for verification before adjusting the assessment results. The adjustment of the results will be in accordance with the procedures, regulations, orders, or announcements stipulated by ONESQA or its Executive Board.
There is no re-assessment in the fourth round of external quality assessment, but there will be a monitoring process after the assessment by considering the result of the assessment. If the quality level is at the level of ‘improvement required’, the institution will be monitored within 6 months after the assessment. If the quality level is ‘fair’, the institution will be monitored within 1 year after the assessment.
