When carrying out their assessment processes, the assessment committees at the Quality Assurance Agency for the University System in Castilla y Leon (ACSUCYL) engage the help and advice of external experts, who are scientists and scholars from universities or research centres located outside Castilla y León, and who evidence a proven track record in teaching or research, are specialists in the area of knowledge subject to evaluation and who have experience in quality assessment processes.
Experts may work individually or together as part of a committee, set up in areas of knowledge or specialities depending on the specificities of the assessment process to be conducted. Moreover, when the subject of the evaluation so advises, efforts are made to engage the participation of renowned non-academic experts from the area being evaluated, as well as students who are experienced in quality assessment processes in higher education.
All of the experts who cooperate with the Agency in the assessment processes must agree to act in accordance with ACSUCYL'S Quality Policy (91 kbytes) , to comply with the Agency's Código Ético (556 kbytes) and to maintain both the confidentiality of the data contained in the documents used and the outcomes of the assessment.
