CoRe Projects

Competences in Education and Recognition

Methodology

During the CoRe-project, a practical exercise of credential evaluation will be performed in order to get a realistic insight of the usability of the learning outcomes and competences that have been developed by educational institutions, as result of the TUNING Project. Twenty Bachelor and/or Master programmes from four different subject areas (five per subject area) are to be selected and evaluated. The subject areas that have been chosen for the study are:

  • History
  • Chemistry
  • Business Administration
  • Nursing

For each educational programme, the following documents will be collected in order to make an evaluation of the relevance of learning outcomes and competences for the purpose of credential evaluation:

  1. Diploma Supplement / Transcript
  2. Competence profile

The credential evaluations will be performed by two teams of credential evaluators, one from the Dutch NARIC, and one from the UK NARIC.

The evaluation conclusions that have been drawn by the two teams of credential evaluators will be assessed by a panel of three other members of the ENIC/NARIC networks. The joint conclusions of the credential evaluation teams and the assessment panel are to be described in a report, which describes the main conclusions and recommendations to the TUNING Project.

An advisory board comprising of representatives of the ENIC/NARIC networks and Tuning will be available to provide advice and guidance during the project.
