Keywords: accreditation, education, evaluation, sport, quality, educational program

Abstract

The article presents an analysis of the decisions of the National Agency for Higher Education Quality Assurance on the accreditation of educational programs of the following specialities: 017 Physical Culture and Sports, 014 Secondary Education (Physical Culture, Human Health). Considering the significant differences between the previous accreditation procedure carried out by the Ministry of Education and Science of Ukraine (until 2019) and the current accreditation procedure carried out by the National Agency for Higher Education Quality Assurance the analysis of accreditation cases is particularly relevant. In the course of the research, the analysis of accreditation cases that took place in the period from November 2019 to November 2020 was carried out. It included the assessment of educational programs, curricula, self-assessment documents, reports of the expert groups, conclusions of branch expert council and decisions of the National Agency. Generalized data on the evaluation of educational programs according to individual criteria is presented. The article presents an analysis of the main shortcomings identified in the process of assessing the quality of educational programs at the stage of field accreditation procedure and, at the stage of assessment of the accreditation case by the branch expert council of the National Agency for Higher Education Quality Assurance. It is shown that the main reason for the decision of the National Agency for Higher Education Quality Assurance on conditional (deferred) accreditation of the educational programs was the presence of significant shortcomings in the structure and content of educational programs, as well as in the processes related to teaching and learning. It was also shown that only half of the educational programs in the field of sports, which passed the accreditation procedure in the period from November 2019 to November 2020 met the requirements for ensuring the quality of the educational process. This indicates that the internal quality assurance systems of Ukrainian higher educational institutions were not ready for the new requirements set by the National Agency for Higher Education Quality Assurance.
