PROCON - A Tool for Curricula Accreditation

Dainis Dosbergs

Abstract

Compliance with the set requirements is controlled by curricula accreditation. Though curricula is managed and prepared to meet the accreditation requirements, problems with control over accreditation requirements and demonstrating the performers of accreditation compliance to those are quite common. This article describes a system developed by the author – PROCON, which provides control over curricula content, study result and other curricula indicators for accreditation purposes by utilizing a compliance matrix.
