Definitions

Evaluation: A general process of systematic and critical analysis leading to judgments and/or recommendations for improvement regarding the quality of a (teacher) education institution or programme.

Accreditation: A process by which an institution or a programme is judged by the relevant legislative and professional authorities as having met predetermined standards in order to provide (teacher) education or training and to award the corresponding qualifications (where they exist). The accreditation procedure presupposes that the programmes or institutions to be accredited are evaluated.
