According to Article 243, section 1 of the Act on Higher Education and Science (Journal of Laws of 2018, item 1668, as amended), a complex evaluation consists of a review of activities aimed at ensuring the quality of education at a higher education institution. The complex evaluation shall take into account, in particular, the effectiveness of activities aimed at ensuring the quality of education at a higher education institution in all areas where education is provided.
The assessment shall be carried out at the request of a higher education institution having only positive programme assessments or a positive complex evaluation. The PKA shall decide whether to carry out a complex evaluation or to refuse to carry it out, taking into account the results of the programme evaluations. The complex evaluation ends with the issuance of a positive evaluation or a refusal to issue a positive evaluation. In the nearest future, analyses concerning the most optimal form of complex evaluation will be carried out.
