Abstract

I will outline the institutional structure of monitoring and improving the quality of higher education in The Netherlands. After critical assessment of recent educational policies a Parliamentary Committee of Inquiry proclaimed the rule of Evidence Based Interventions Only. From discussion and follow-up on that report I will draw the conclusion that more is needed than just a list of recommendations.

Keywords: education, quality monitoring, education policy
