CONCEPT CLASSIFICATION FOR STUDY PROGRAMS QUALITY EVALUATION

Dainis Dosbergs, Juris Borzovs

Abstract

The article describes the form of recording the study courses in the University of Latvia and the drawbacks in the records of the study courses are indicated, which hinder tracing the quality control of the study program. The solution offered by the authors is described, using the concept classification in describing the study course topics. Concept classification, when combined with the modifications in recording the topic acquisition information, would facilitate the processing of the study program in the context of quality control. The article enumerates the most significant gains, which would be achieved by the changes in the method for registering the study courses as offered by the authors, which would further facilitate the quality control of the study program contents and ensuring quality in a long-term. The article deals with two examples of recording the study course topics, using concept classification.
