Abstract

In current conditions, higher educational institutions have to develop innovative mechanisms of education quality assurance independently. One such mechanism is the implementation of the European Foundation for Quality Management (EFQM) model, although the 9001:2001 International Organization for Standardization (ISO) model is widely implemented in the higher education system of Kazakhstan. International Organization for Standardization (ISO) model is widely implemented in the higher education system of Kazakhstan. In-depth theoretical and methodological studies developed a design technology for a quality assurance system. The purpose of this study is to confirm the validity of this technology, which is why the study sets the following tasks: 1) to determine the validity criteria for the developed technology; 2) to show that the developed technology meets the validity criteria. An important result of this study is that it substantiated the criteria of the selected types of technology validity: construct, criterion, and content. The study proved that the developed technology met the criteria of validity, which was the main result. This allows recommending higher educational institution in Kazakhstan to implement this technology.
