TU Darmstadt increases further efficiency of institutional evaluation
HMWK supports the project Efficiency Enhancement of Institutional Evaluation, especially in the field of studying and teaching, as part of the Study Structure Program (SSP).
The aim of the project is to analyze and optimize TU Darmstadt’s Institutional Evaluation – including the quality assurance of degree programmes – with regard to the workload for the participating actors and the efficiency of processes.
A process management software with a high potential for professionalisation is used in this process to enable an more efficient collaboration of the involved parties.
The project is in charge advance by Directorate Strategic Development (Directorate I), Unit Quality Management and Administrative Bodies (project management ) and Directorate Study and Teaching, University Law (Directorate II), Unit Study Programs and Quality Assurance. However, the responsible units integrate for specific topics also representatives of departments, central services and central administration.

The preparation and implementation of the system accreditation at TU Darmstadt was supported by project funding from central QSL funds and by HMWK, as part of the Study Structure Program (SSP).

Surveys – Potential for Quality Assurance
The project was funded from central QSL funds of the TU Darmstadt (duration: 01.10.2012 – 30.09.2014; cost-neutral postponement until winter semester 2015/16).
The QSL project “Surveys – Potentials for Quality Assurance” was successfully completed in winter semester 2015/16 after two years of work. The aim of the project was to increase the quality of surveys, which are carried out regularly at TU Darmstadt for quality assurance in the field of study and teaching and to integrate them even more effectively and systematically into integrated quality management in the future as an instrument for the quality assurance of studies and teaching.
Beyond the duration of the project, the results of the project will be used for further developments in this area. For example, they formed the basis for the establishment of a coordination office for surveys in the field of study and teaching and for the conception and implementation of the first general TU Darmstadt student survey. The results were incorporated into the system accreditation.
Following the completion of the project, the subject of surveys for quality assurance accomplished by the Quality Management Unit will again be dealt by the Centre for Educational Development (HDA). There will continue to be close cooperation with the Quality Management Unit, the Study Programmes and Quality Assurance Unit and the scientific departments.
