6. Brief Overview of the Historical Development of Office:
In keeping with trends in international integration, it has been the policy of the Ministry of Education and Training (MOET) to handle accreditation on the quality of teaching and learning at all universities, regardless of whether they are public or private institutions. At present, many universities in the country have established centers or units responsible for examinations, quality assurance, and evaluations. Therefore, it was an indispensable requirement that the Office of Testing and Quality Assurance (abbreviated as TQA) be established.
In order to ensure effective quality assurance and to manage continuity going forward, the University asked the Center for Data Processing and Testing to create a project to build and develop the Center of Testing and Quality Assurance (the predecessor to TQA) into a Testing Center. On September 1, 2006, the Testing Center was set up under Decision No. 1630 / QĐ-ĐHCN-TCHC as signed by the rector of Ho Chi Minh University of Industry. On November 1, 2006, the University decided to dissolve the Testing Center and instead establish the Center for Testing and Accreditation of Training Quality in accordance with Decision No. 1900 / QD-TCHC. Then, as the function of the Center evolved, on 01/06/2011, the Center was reorganized and reestablished as the Testing Department per Decision No. 267 /QĐ-TCHC.
Most recently, on August 8, 2012, the Department was renamed the Testing and Quality Assurance Office under Decision No. 606/QĐ-ĐHCN.
