The new Assessment Framework for the Higher Education Accreditation System of the Netherlands 2016 has been in force since 1 January 2017 (see Frameworks/documents). There is a transitional arrangement (see FAQ on the right side of this page).
The framework 2016 optimizes the review process by more freedom for design of the self-evaluation report and the visit, limit the assessment burden and strengthening the position of students and improve function. The standards are largely the same as in the framework 2014.
The main documents are presented on the right side of this page.
NVAO will keep in touch with you through direct consultations, our newsletters, and various meetings. If you would like more information or have questions regarding the Assessment Framework for the Higher Education Accreditation System of the Netherlands 2016, please:
