Evaluation of institutions

Evaluation campaign 2019-2020 (group A)

The reference documentation published online is intended for all higher education and research institutions (universities, major institutions, research bodies, schools) that undergo an institutional evaluation, whether they are supervised by the Ministry of Higher Education, Research and Innovation (MESRI) or attached to another ministry.

Reference documents to be consulted:

Documents to be submitted on the PELICAN exchange platform:

  • Self-evaluation report including a global review of the results of the current contract with the supervising ministry
  • Declaration of the institution’s strategic development priorities for the next contractual period, paying particular attention to the training and research strategy
  • Functional organisational structure of the institution
  • Characterisation data which the institution considers relevant to its evaluation
  • Indicators specific to the institution, including contractual indicators
  • Initial budgets and financial accounts for the last 4 years, as adopted by the Administrative Board, accompanied by the accounting officer’s overview report, financial analysis documentation for the institution, if available, and budget policy letters (for each fiscal year)
  • Other external evaluation reports, where applicable

Discussions between Hcéres and the Ministry of Culture have prompted Hcéres to propose the simplification of the files submitted by ENSAs, entailing:

  • the production by the institution of a single self-evaluation file that will meet the requirements set out in the external evaluation standards of both departments,
  • the organisation of a visit to enable an institutional evaluation of the school and carry out a more detailed examination of study programmes initially evaluated on the basis of documentation.

To improve the coordination of evaluations and simplify the documentation submitted by engineering schools, Hcéres and the CTI (French Engineering Qualifications Committee) have asked schools to prepare a single self-evaluation file and organise a coordinated visit in accordance with the schedules of both evaluation bodies. To this end, Hcéres and the CTI have published guidelines to help schools write the self-evaluation report.
