Abstract
The authors’ article is devoted to the problem of evaluating activities of universities. There are two approaches to its organization. The first involves the evaluation of state education authorities or public organizations funded by the government. The second is implemented through self-assessment of a university to identify shortcomings and develop measures to eliminate them and improve the quality of education. Attention is drawn to the fact that in recent years, in the universities of many countries, including Russia and China, along with state accreditation, the practice of self-assessment activities has become widespread. The assessment is carried out by special intra-university quality assessment departments, which regularly monitor the quality of education and its management. This process has a number of advantages: maintaining a high level of teaching, updating the content of educational programs and academic disciplines, encouraging teachers to improve themselves and create. On the other hand, this process creates difficulties for the pedagogical systems of universities and those systems that manage them. The authors propose to make the project tools for managing their sustainable development an object of self-assessment of universities. The article attempts to determine the place and role of self-assessment of universities in the functioning and development of the higher education system.
