How do you determine whether a test is of good quality? Are the rules and guidelines of the examination board properly drawn up? How do you guarantee the final level of a programme? What is a suitable profile for an examiner?  What does "testing policy" actually mean? When it comes to caring for and guaranteeing the quality of testing, what is the responsibility of the programme management and what belongs to the examination board? How can I be sure that the programme meets all the accreditation standards and legal obligations?

Do you have to deal with these kinds of questions in your function or role? Would you like to hear what others, inside and outside the UT, think about these issues? Would you like to compare your own solutions with what others have come up with? Then the SKE trajectory is definitely for you. 
A SEQ (SKE)  trajectory is aimed specifically at functionaries and bodies within the UT who, at curriculum (or higher) level, are concerned with ensuring or safeguarding the quality of assessment and with making sure that graduates have acquired the intended final qualifications. These include among others Exam Board members, programme directors, programme coordinators, quality assurance officers, educational consultants.

Experience with SQE
Since 2017, the Senior Examination Qualification (Dutch: Senior Kwalificatie Examinering - SKE) trajectory has been offered at the university. This time will be the fourth time. For the first time in English, unless everyone is able to speak and understand Dutch.
The experience gained in the past years shows that the SEQ programme contributes to improving the care for and securing of the quality of assessment within the programmes. With expertise and verve, SEQ alumni fulfil better informed and with more confidence a signaling, supporting, advising and stimulating role within the study programme; either from a specific position or from the body they are part of, such as an Examination Board. 

Planning and set-up
The project will run from October 2021 till July 2022, with a symposium in Sept/Oct. 2022. The time commitment is approximately 90-100 hours. The results of the assignments are expected to be directly useful for your function and tasks. In the flyer you will find more information about the set-up and the themes that will be addressed. Some of the dates are already scheduled so you can check whether it will be possible for you to join the meetings.
