This will further loosen the hands of universities during the “non-competitive competition”.

The Committee on Science and Education took its decision unanimously, as indicated in the minutes. At the same time, V. Lytvyn and M. Poplavsky were absent from the meeting, ie only deputies from the coalition voted.

This is how the idea of ​​equality in admission turned into more than just an alkali – a tunnel to bypass fair and transparent admission and external evaluation. 

Spicy detail: animal farm chapter 5 and 6 summary the text of the committee’s decision noted that beneficiaries would be admitted “based on the results of entrance examinations or an external independent evaluation.” And from the text of the voted law the mention of ZNO in general disappeared: “according to results of entrance examinations” it is written down there. This will further loosen the hands of universities during the “non-competitive competition”. 

Attempts to pass the entrance exams to the Law “On Higher Education” were made in the days of Dmitry Tabachnik. Deja vu? Although not on such a scale. And this is not the first attack on the external evaluation in the post-Maidan parliament. First Deputy Chairman of the Committee on Science and Education Alexander Spivakovsky (BPP) has already made a proposal to take into account the certificates of external evaluation of previous years (see “Perseverance or stubbornness?” ZN.UA from March 13, 2015), which levels the essence of the rating score of independent testing (And this was also done once by Dmitry Tabachnik). Fortunately, such a proposal did not pass, not least due to active public resistance.

Independent testing has been introduced in our country for almost eight years. This is one of the most authoritative and popular reforms in society. But there are still attempts to blur it. 

Traditionally, the blows fall in two directions – the narrowing of the EIT and the undermining of its authority. A recent manifestation of the second way can be considered the scandal around the Ukrainian Center for Educational Quality Assessment over possible interference in the holy of holies – the test results. Moreover, a blow to the EIT will be inflicted in both cases – and if the intervention in the secure database of the Testing Center is proven, and if not.

Recently, ZN.UA addressed the Prosecutor General’s Office with a detailed request regarding the results of the investigation. We did not receive answers to the vast majority of questions, because “Disclosure of other data of the pre-trial investigation, according to the requirements of Article 222 of the Code of Criminal Procedure of Ukraine, is currently impossible.” There are almost no findings in the information received: there were several hundred cases of interference in the database of test results, these interventions were committed by “officials of the Ukrainian Center for Quality Assessment, entering into a criminal conspiracy with unidentified persons” and ” confirmed the use of certificates directly to applicants for higher education., formed on the basis of unreliable information on the results of the EIT “. Well, we will wait for the publication of convincing evidence and specific decisions of the authorities on them.

But no matter what happens, we will not give the external examination. Under no circumstances. Although this time we seem to have stolen a Trojan horse – a gift from the deputies under the Christmas tree (the law was voted on December 24, 2015).

Quit suggested that the heads of 53 universities decide on the feasibility of their further operation

More than 50 universities may disappear in the spring

The Ministry of Education and Science invited the heads of 53 higher educational institutions of Ukraine to decide on the feasibility of further operation until the end of the 2014/2015 academic year. This is stated in the letter of the Minister of Education Sergei Kvit to the rectors of some Ukrainian universities. In particular, the education department notes that over the years of independence in Ukraine has historically developed an extensive network of higher education institutions, and a small contingent of students in the vast majority of higher education institutions and their The Ministry of Education notes that this situation creates duplication of training, creates difficulties in the formation and placement of the state order, controls the quality of higher education, reduces the effectiveness of management, limits the opportunities for citizens. continuing education in higher-level programs leads to significant financial costs for the maintenance of higher education institutions. “All this has had a negative impact on the quality of training and their con According to the State Statistics Service, today the network of higher education institutions includes 803 higher education institutions of all levels of accreditation and forms of ownership, including 325 higher education institutions of III-IV levels of accreditation and 478 – I-II levels of accreditation. The state form of ownership includes 215 educational institutions of III-IV levels of accreditation and 200 educational institutions of I-II levels of accreditation; to the private form of ownership – 96 educational institutions of III-IV levels of accreditation and 71 – I-II levels of accreditation. “The current network of higher educational institutions far exceeds the needs of Ukraine. This is evidenced by the fact that today there are 2 academies of state ownership with a contingent of less than 900 students and 51 universities, academies, institutes or their individual divisions of private ownership with a contingent of less than 200 students “- noted in the education department.According to the admission campaign in 2014 the volume of admission to 16 such higher education institutions was less 200 people, and in 80 private forms of ownership – from 100 people to one person. There is a situation when higher education institutions simultaneously provide educational services and assign graduates qualifications of workers in the same specialties. The Ministry of Education and Science notes that autonomy where am I activities of higher education institutions and the expansion of their rights of self-government, which are the main philosophy of the new law “On Higher Education”, at the same time lead to increased responsibility of university staff and their leaders for the quality of educational services. At the same time, accreditation bodies and expert organizations, in particular the National Agency for Quality Assurance in Higher Education, will also increase the requirements for self-analysis of educational results and quality management system of the educational process. “However, the analysis of evaluation of educational institutions during accreditation to predict that not all higher education institutions will be able to maintain a high level of evaluation of educational activities if they do not do so in cooperation with powerful universities that have experience, teams of scientific and pedagogical workers of high professional level, scientific and methodological potential and material and technical base. “- the letter says. “Based on the above, and in order to create an effective system of management of higher education institutions of various forms of ownership and subordination, modernization of their network, to avoid duplication of training with higher education, I offer managers higher education institutions (according to the list) to be determined by the end of the 2014/2015 academic year in the feasibility of further operation or possible joint efforts with other educational institutions.
