The Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology (MEXT) has presented to the Central Council for Education's System and Education Reform Working Group the issues of reviewing the contents of the university certification evaluation system.For universities evaluated as excellent, it includes simplification of the next evaluation and review of the overlap with the national university corporation evaluation.

 According to the Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology, the presented materials provided draft directions for improving the efficiency of evaluations and reducing the burden on each university, which were included in the deliberation summary of the Central Council for Education University Subcommittee.

 In terms of improving the efficiency of evaluation, universities that were judged to have excellent internal quality assurance in education and research were asked to point out parts other than internal quality assurance in the next evaluation, and only the parts that were improved were confirmed. ..In order to reduce the burden on each university, if it is judged that certain requirements are met in the evaluation of national and public universities, measures such as sorting out the parts that overlap with the evaluation of national university corporations were shown.

 The university certification evaluation system is a system in which all universities are checked every seven years to see if the standards are being followed and if education and research are being conducted properly. It started in 7.
The third cycle will be entered from 2018, but the first cycle has cleared the minimum standards as an introduction period, and the second cycle has focused on the evaluation of the achievement level of each university.However, the evaluation work involved a huge amount of work, including the creation of self-evaluations at the university, and there were calls for a reduction in the burden.

 In addition, from the university side
■ I tend to fall into formal evaluation, and I haven't been able to discuss what I really mean.
■ Not as much as intended to improve education and research
■ Even if it receives an excellent evaluation, the merit on the university side is small
-Problems such as are also pointed out.
