Diorama Room, UIN News Online – Along with the development of information technology, university accreditation system is now being transformed into the Online Higher Education Accreditation System (SAPTO). To face this matter, LPM UIN Jakarta invites National Accreditation Board of Higher Education (BAN PT) to disseminate SAPTO. Located in Diorama room, September 27, 2017, LPM invites all study programs in UIN Jakarta and 25 universities from Jakarta, Depok, Tangerang and Serang areas.
Acting as resource person is Dr. Sugiyono, Executive Board Member of BAN PT. An important message of accreditation according to Sugiyono is that accreditation is not the goal. The main purpose of accreditation is to improve the quality of education in a sustainable manner. One of the tips for dealing with SAPTO is that universities must have a single data source, which can be shared by all units. In SAPTO, the system has been prepared so that the university who are doing accreditation can’t manipulate the data.
According Sugiyono, around 2017, among 4000-ish colleges in Indonesia, only about 1279 have been accredited. This is very sad, because according to Law No. 12 of 2012 on Higher Education All PT should be all accredited. In the context of Islamic Religious Higher Education (PTKI) one of the problems that often arise is the frequent change of nomenclature, and there are no reports to BAN PT and Ministry. About Homebase, PT BAN has never set a homebase based on the study program, which is important that each study program has 6 lecturers. Homebase faculty is an institution. In addition to BAN PT, to make accreditation, also formed LAM (Independent Accreditation Institution). If in a science family has not formed LAM, then the accreditation is still done by BAN PT.
The socialization was followed by a demonstration of the online use of SAPTO, which was directly demonstrated by the SAPTO BAN PT development team. The participants, mostly from universities in Jakarta and surrounding areas, were very enthusiastic to attend the event. (usa-rs)
