Quality in training products: indicators, methods, parameters
for assessing the results of Leonardo da Vinci projects

The study deals with the issue of quality in training products with a specific focus on the outputs implemented within the Leonardo da Vinci Programme (2000-2006). In detail, the research aims at:
  1. identifying a set of transversal quality indicators of Leonardo projects, by classifying the final results by typology of beneficiaries and pedagogic medium which has been used;
  2. verifying the average market costs for every production component, in order to define a set of economic parameters which can be used to check the "rentabilité" and the coherence in managing and exploiting the resources which are spent in order to achieve the results;
  3. arranging grids and score systems to assign to products, when implementing projects administrative control.
At the end of the research a final report has been drafted, which contains:
  • a description of carried out activities;
  • the presentation of the elaborated assessment tools;
  • an analysis of the technical features of the different media which are used by promoters to spread projects results and of the processes underlying training products implementation;
  • the elaboration of costs tables to appraise the coherence of the product with the investment which has been exploited.

The study is co-ordinated by the Italian Leonardo da Vinci National Agency, in close cooperation with three National Agencies (Portugal, Norway and Finland) and with the European Commission.
