Quality indicator development report

The IHSM working group held an online meeting with Ms. Svetlana Jasik, ExoLaunch, Berlin, Germany, responsible for the project QA.
Dr. Ainash A. Sharshenova and Dr. Dmitry V. Vishniakov presented a Report on the development of quality indicators for the PhD program in IHSM in the frame of the assigned project objectives.  As a result, an original table of quality assessment indicators developed, consisting of two parts.
The first part of the table consists of 12 blocks. Each block has indicators with a description - this is the first and largest column-group, indicating a larger number of subgroups. The criteria for evaluating the student's work in the PhD program indicated. The following columns are an indication of the source of information and an estimate.
The second part of the table is devoted to the evaluation of the project results. It shows: 1) the timeliness of the tasks, 2) the percentage of planned work performed, 3) the developed indicators, 4) whether they are used or not. Everything is assessed in numbers. Some items immediately give an estimate in numbers, and the rest assess evaluated in-using indicators, depending on the dynamics.
During the meeting, the presented report was discussed in detail.
Summing up the results of the meeting:
An excellent document has been developed. It will be used as a guideline for internal use and a "road map" for the implementation of the PhD program. Next, need to draw up a report according to the summary table to visually track the project’s progress in the institutions participating in the project
