    Abstract

    In 2006–2007, the Slovenian higher education (HE) system took the first steps toward building a national model of institutional external evaluation (IEE), which would be comparable with other European models. In the first part of the article, the authors discuss the main tendencies within the European he area. This is followed by an outline of the developments in the field of quality assurance within Slovenian he, stressing the years 2006 and 2007. The scientific contribution of the article lies in the evaluation outcomes of the national pilot IEES, with focus on the professional competences of the External evaluation commission (EEC) members. Observation results stress the importance of the proper training of EEC members. The authors propose that a systematic follow-up on the EEC work needs to be established and a code of ethics drawn up, highlighting the preferred values and principles of EEC members.
