Introduction

Education is growing very fast in Pakistan at every level, may that be primary, secondary or tertiary levels. At the same time, we are facing a serious crisis of losing its Quality. Starting from the state’s education policy, accreditation bodies and institutions’ internal administrative functions, Quality Assurance generally found to be unorganized, unplanned and grossly neglected at all levels. Quality of education cannot be judged simply from the grades that an institution declares on its transcripts; rather it pertains to the overall abilities of the graduates or their learning outcome, as well as their personality development which includes the ethical, moral, religious and national values. The average grades provided by the schools, Boards of Secondary and Intermediate Educations, and Universities are constantly on the rise; while the learning outcomes and personality traits of the society is gradually on the decline. Most institutions recognize this issue but do not understand or implement how to control them through an organized Quality Assurance programs.
