Summary/Abstract: The environment in which higher education institutions (HEIs) are operating has dramatically changed. Wider access to HE and new ways of government funding, has put pressure on accountability of HEIs. Increased competition and international mobility of students and staff has raised expectations about quality. As a result, delivering a high quality service has become an important strategic goal for the many HEIs, so they are forced to introduce internal mechanisms to manage quality. In order to effectively manage quality, it is important to be able to accurately measure it.
