Publication Abstract

Educational Evaluation is one of the growing concerns of higher Education institutions in Pakistan. Since it is relatively new and have been imbedded through higher education commission of Pakistan, there is a need to focus on various areas of academic evaluation and use the right level of evaluation with a clear focus on the expected outcomes. Three areas of educational evaluation need to be addressed on priority basis in higher education institution in Pakistan namely course, faculty and program evaluation. Though universities in Pakistan have introduced this evaluation in some form at different stages and results are used for performance improvement, the missing link is triangulation. This paper focuses on these areas of evaluation discussing how they can be made more effective and suggests how triangulation of results of these three areas would increase the positive impact on the quality of higher education in Pakistan.
