83 p. 

This report, which is part of a study that seeks to help colleges, universities, and accreditation agencies improve their performance, presents insights gained from interviews and from documents collected in advance of and during visits to Denmark and Sweden in 1999 to examine higher education quality evaluations. Following Section 1, "Introduction," Section 2, "Antecedents and Approaches," discusses the two countries' approaches to evaluation (where they started and why they chose different strategies). Section 3, "Methodologies," focuses on the differences and similarities between the methodologies used in the two countries, and discusses preparing for evaluation, self-evaluations, user surveys, site visits, and reports and followup. Section 4, "Reactions to Evaluation," describes the institutions' reactions to the evaluation process. Section 5, "Impacts," assesses the impact of the two evaluation programs on quality work, discusses how evaluation affects academic autonomy, and comments upon the diffusion of quality work across institutions and their departments. Three monographs are appended: "Educational Quality Work (NCPI)" by William F. Massy and Andrea K. Wilger (1999); "Educational Quality Work in Denmark and Sweden"; and "A System for Quality Assurance and Quality Development" by Bengt-Ove Bostrom. (Includes 79 endnotes.) (SM)
