Department od Education, NTNU
In order to deal with the increasing numbers of institutions and students, the development of transnational education, the trend of marketization, the decreasing support from government funding, and the demand for accountability, most colleges in Latin America have gradually set mechanisms for evaluation and accreditation. These countries have not only established individual organizations and systems for evaluation and accreditation, but also endeavored to integrate them into regional networks for quality enhancement. This paper is aimed to explore the development of the quality assurance system ofhigher education in Latin America and the influence of regionalism on an individual country. The purposes of the research are (I) to probe into the implementation of regionalism in higher education of Latin America, (2) to study the development of evaluation, accreditation systems, the design of regional organizations and projects in the said area, and (3) to analyze the impact that could be possibleproduced by regional projects on the evaluation and accreditation systems in Argentina. The results indicate that evaluation mechanisms of both, national and regional, levels in Latin America have been developed simultaneously and correspondent1y. Even though the regional accreditation has made great progress, there is still a long way for being accepted by entire selected area.
