The expert reports are the basis for the Agency Council’s decisions in accreditation and evaluation procedures. They also represent an important source of information about the actual state of quality and development in the Slovene higher education and higher vocational area, and are intended for students, the academic community and the general public. The expert reports provide an insight into the characteristics, functioning, strengths and weaknesses of a higher education institution, study programme or higher vocational college. On their basis, the Agency periodically provides analyses of the state of higher and higher vocational education in Slovenia with the aim of improving quality assurance policies and processes. Through transparent self-evaluation processes, it also provides for continuous development and improvement of its own quality system.
