Applicable quality models in higher education in Argentina
The aim of this paper is the study of quality management systems applied to higher education. The spe- cific objectives are to present different models of approach to the concept of quality education applicable in Argentina: to study the legal framework governing university education, and to introduce considera- tions about its evaluation. The National Education Law 26026/2006 is clear about State responsibility to ensure quality education for all residents, and implementation of assessment policy to secure it. Accredi- tation is the process commonly used to give public account of the degree of compliance of higher educa- tion institutions. Periodic accreditation of undergraduate careers, whose titles correspond to professions regulated by the State, is performed. External evaluations present evaluation reports that are public.
