Quality Assurance In The Higher Education Institutions In Algeria: Constraints And Levers For The Implementation Of The Change

Authors : Musette Yasmine .


This article deals with the levers and constraints encountered during the implementation of Quality Assurance in higher education in Algeria. First, a review of literature is done on the constraints and facilitating factors identified by previous scholars. Secondly, a content analysis is done on 20 Quality Assurance Managers (QAM) interviews during 2015 in the central academic region of Algeria. Our results indicate that stakeholders support is a lever for the implementation of Quality Assurance (QA) in Algeria. Among the constraints are the unfinished legal framework, the need for training in the field of QA and the resistance of stakeholders. Lastly, difficulties are linked to the type of the establishment, University and School.
