History and Background

The Center for Educational Testing and Quality Assurance (CETQA) was established on August 21st, 1999 according to Decision No. 219/QĐ/ĐHQG/TCCB of Vietnam National University – Hochiminh City (VNU-HCM) when quality assurance in higher education nation-wide was not the focus of development efforts. The establishment of the Center  reflects the strategic vision and the strong emphasis on quality of VNU-HCM.

Since its inception, CETQA has carried out many research projects to get a better understanding of theories and develop tools for quality assurance at VNU-HCM. In addition, it joined the efforts to develop regulations on quality assurance for the whole nation right from the beginning in collaboration with Department of Education Testing and Accreditation – Ministry of Education and Training. As a core QA unit, the Center continues to play an important part in finalizing the model of quality assurance system as well as quality regulations and guidelines at VNU-HCM.

Realizing the need for integration, CETQA has tried hard to strengthen its international relations in the field of quality assurance. On behalf of VNU-HCM, the Center became a member of ASEAN University Network (AUN) in 1999 and was among the 17 members contributing ideas to develop the first version of AUN Guidelines. In addition, the Center joined International Network Quality Assurance Agencies in Higher Education (INQAAHE) in 2004 and Asia-Pacific Quality Network (APQN) in 2005. In 2013, it became an associate member of Asia Pacific Higher Education Research Partnership (APHERP).

After 14 years of  establishment and development, the Center has asserted itself as a core unit of VNU-HCM’s quality assurance system and contributed to the development of quality assurance nation-wide.
