CARDOSO ESPINOSA, Edgar Oliver  and  CERECEDO MERCADO, María Trinidad. Proposal for Indicators to Evaluate the Quality of a Postgraduate Program in Education. REDIE [online]. 2011, vol.13, n.2, pp.68-82. ISSN 1607-4041.

It is now imperative for those postgraduate programs oriented toward Education to meet the quality standards set by the National Postgraduate-Quality Program (PNPC), since this constitutes the Federal Government's main guideline for allocating resources. The present study aims to propose indicators that would allow assessment of postgraduate-program quality in Education by using the following criteria as a basis for analysis: efficacy, efficiency, importance, equity and relevance. It also indicates the status of these programs to the CONACYT, a minimal involvement, demonstrating the need to establish indicators that would serve as a guide for cataloguing programs according to their quality.

Keywords : Accreditation; evaluation; graduate studies; educational quality.
