Abstract [en]

In a statistics course for engineers, we have designed a system for assessment where web based quizzes is one of the key elements. The basic ambition has been to find a way to make students more active during the course, and to provide learning situations where discussion and collaboration are key elements. The need to achieve this in a cost-effective way has also been addressed. The new course design is a structure where students along the course have to answer sets of randomly selected questions that often are based on random data sets. The course design has made it possible to encourage student collaboration, both in other parts in the course and in quiz answering.

Abstract [en]

Two fundamental aspects of decision-making concern stability and capability: is the process stable and predictable and does it meet the requirements? These aspects are often studied by use of control charts and of capability studies. The former comprises techniques based on plotting the longitudinal outcome of some process measure and estimation of what could be called the “natural variation” for the process. Capability studies are based on comparisons between the variation and tolerance limits.If these aspects are addressed explicitly at all, then they often seem to be dealt with incompletely or even inappropriately. Control charts are often described as techniques for determining when the process should be adjusted. This is evidently one possible use for control charts, but it is far too restricted. We claim that control charts have their most important use as tools for discerning what kinds of actions which might be appropriate in improvement efforts, hence an instrument to be used in fairly high level decision making. As for capability studies, these are often made without considerations to the process stability. This can result in making the final capability indices more or less useless.The intention in this paper is to advocate an alternative and more general perspective on these two aspects. The basic argument is that the tools should first of all be used on the level of manager's decision-making. A simple model for the use of the tools is proposed. The model could hopefully provide support to decision-making as it results in better facts.

Abstract [en]

Critical thinking, desirable as it may seem, can imply an emphasis on the ability to deconstruct. This ability is clearly important, but reasonably only part of what is required for learning which must comprise integration and the finding of patterns. Reflection is also fundamental and a critical attitude might provide a detriment to such reflection since critique often seems to rely on a focus on results, rather than on reflection upon mistakes. The arguments will be supported by a description of the experiences from a statistics course comprising peer review and attempts to stimulate the making of good mistakes.

Abstract [en]

As in the case in many areas of society, quality issues have come into focus also in higher education. One expression is that there are a number of institutions in higher education where a Total Quality Management (TQM) perspective has been adopted. However, most of these examples are found in non-academic activities. This article discusses the possibility to achieve improvements in teaching and learning from the adoption of a TQM perspective. The discussion will be based upon an analogy with one particular development common in trade and industry, namely the transition towards process orientated structures, and towards less reliance on screening, rework and scrapping of non-conformance. The basic argument is that a similar change in higher education accompanied by the adoption of a TQM perspective comprising elements as focus on customer needs, process orientation and continuous improvements could result in improvements in teaching and learning.

Abstract [en]

Issues related to quality have received more attention in both society at large and higher education during the last decades. Concepts such as ‘Total Quality Management' and ‘continuous improvement' have become prevalent terms in the discussions around quality issues. The overall intention of this thesis is to study quality management in higher education, and more specifically, to see if and how perspectives with their origin outside higher education could provide means to improve the activities in that setting. The first element in the thesis is an attempt to formulate a general framework for quality management as it refers to higher education. Secondly, three specific investigations into quality issues in higher education are described. The first of these is a study of how self-assessments according to criteria in the Swedish Quality Award could be used in higher education. The second is a study of the use in higher education of quality systems and the ISO 9000 set of standards for such quality systems. The third is a discussion of similarities between developments in trade and industry on one hand and higher education on the other. As a very general conclusion, perspectives such as ‘Total Quality Management' are argued as being both relevant and meaningful in higher education. Interpreted comprehensively, this perspective and other related concepts seem not only valid, but also a means to find possible improvements. The areas which are discussed are both administrative or support activities and academic areas. As for results from the studies of self-assessments according to quality awards and of quality systems, both these instruments seem valid and useful in higher educational settings. The main intention with the actual kind of assessment which has been studied is that it could result in an understanding of possibilities for improvements. Even though the assessment method comprises some perspectives which are not common in higher education, it seems reasonable to assume that the intended result could be attained. The study of quality systems indicates that this kind of instrument can also provide a basis for improvements, although from another starting point. Implementations of such systems have in several cases resulted in a structure for quality management, whereby possibilities for improvements are more easily discerned. Both studies suggest, however, that use of instruments such as those considered is not unproblematic. Underlying motives and resource issues are some examples of possibly problematic aspects. The discussion of similarities between higher education and developments in trade and industry is finally an attempt to show that a TQM perspective is valid not only as means for improvement in areas such as administrative affairs, but also in core activities such as teaching and learning. However, even if the adoption of this perspective could result in improvements, there are obstacles to such an adoption. Change is seldom achieved in a straightforward manner in any kind of organisation. Besides any general obstacles, higher education also seems to bear a number of characteristics which may be particularly significant. Two such impediments which are discussed are the organisational structure and the use of grades.

Abstract [en]

In the contemporary discussion about quality in higher education, so called 'quality systems' have received widespread attention. In this paper, quality systems in general, and ISO 9000 in particular, will be described, together with the results from a survey of institutions in higher education worldwide. The intention was to find out where, why and how quality systems had been implemented. The institutions involved have experiences of the implementation of quality systems according to some part of the ISO 9000 series of standards, and in most cases they have also gained certification to some standard. As well as the results from the study, some comments concerning quality systems and their implementation thereof in higher education are given.
