Abstract

The fundamental target of the self-assessment is to assist institutions in improving the quality of education setting priorities in the improvement plan as per the requirements of relevant stakeholders and following the vision of a nation which requires a huge self-inspiration of faculty members within the organization. Universities in Bangladesh have already completed a self-assessment programme. This paper aims to investigate faculty members’ perception and perceived change impact of the organizational self-assessment process on academic units using qualitative and quantitative approaches. The SAC members’ perception of the self-assessment process is collected using the Likert scale. Overall, the mean score implies that SA members are convinced with the standards set for the SA process. Organizational improvement priorities and perceived change impacts are identified through Nvivo and in-depth interviews respectively. Although they set some priorities that cannot be executed without a grant, only a few departments are chipping away at their improvement plan. However, it is reported that a big change happened in the affective domain of faculty members.
