The independent evaluation of the students’ knowledge I. N. Ulianov Chuvash University ranked 3rd among the country's higher educational institutions

Thursday, 28.09.17

In the “objectivity” rating of Russian universities carried out by the Federal Education and Science Supervision Agency, I. N. Ulianov Chuvash State University by the results of participation in the fourth stage of experiment on independent assessment of students’ knowledge among 116 universities in the country took the 3rdplace.  

Independent evaluation of students' knowledge is a kind of external audit of educational programs quality, students’competence necessaryfor further successfully studying byeducational programs and for professional activities. The experiment on objective evaluation of the students' knowledge is as close as possible to natural conditions of an examination session and requires passing examinations/credit tests in the form of interviews and written answers.A special feature is that the students' knowledge is checked by teachers who did not teach interviewees. Another higher educational institution’s teachers who had considerable experience in selected disciplines and who had received a degree were involved as third-party experts.

The experiment provides an opportunity for universities not so much to get an "independent" picture of the students' competence, but, to a large extent, to get an external evaluation of the work performed by educational institutions themselves, including correctness of training courses curriculum, level of teaching and assessment funds.Analytical notes with recommendations are prepared for higher education institutions as a result of the experiment.

The Federal Education and Science Supervision Agency is interested in further developing objective assessment of knowledge, since students' knowledge assessment allowsat the initial stage to determine actual quality of training and take steps to correct the situation.

Here Future Is Created

One of the youngest universities in the country turned 50 years old. In August 1967, two weeks before the start of a new academic year, the USSR Council of Ministers signed a decree on organization of the Chuvash State University. Itbecamethe 43rd inthe SovietUnion.

Although we could celebrate its centenary, if the authorities of the young Republic could have managed to open such a multidisciplinary University in 1920: plans for its opening appeared then. But only half a century later these plans were brought to life, in Leonid Brezhnev time, who just put up hands under the pressure of Islukov, the first Secretary of the Chuvash Regional Committee of the Communist Party.

Science and practice

Mechanical engineering faculty. At a first glance, it is a usual classroom: a board, tables, computers where students study the basics of designing. This is actually part of Cheboksary engineering centre of transport and agricultural machinery – the pride of the Chuvash State University. Such software can be envied by many enterprises: it allows to develop new technology units. The Engineering Centre is being created thanks to the federal grant of 100 million rubles.

«It was not easy to get it," said the head of the Center Vladimir Grigoriev. — The first time it took much time to write carefully the application, but we took the offensive 11st place, and there were 10 grants. The following year, already having gained experience, we decided to apply again. And we managed to win! We were the first in the list of 69 universities! Republican enterprises started to order us a variety of research in the field of mechanical engineering».

The ChuvSU Rector Andrey Aleksandrov (a graduate of the University, too) does not hide his joy: «This is our biggest project, which we won at the federal level, and the second success of 2016 was a joint project with V. I. Chapayev Production Association for creation of high-tech production of sealing elements for the oil and gas industry. It was financially supported by the Russian Federation Industry and Trade Ministry and Ministry of Education».


Andrey Aleksandrov, Rector of I. N. Ulianov ChuvSU:

– The University cooperates with many foreign universities. Our key partners are China, Belarus, Armenia, Kazakhstan and Germany. We need it to understand our place in the world educational space, figure out where to move. 

In recent years, ChuvSU has taken a course on re-equipment of laboratory and scientific base to remain the scientific centre of Chuvashia. Thus, the development of three University scientists in 2013 was one of the 100 top inventions of the country. At applied physics and nanotechnologies department a new substance was obtained: a linear-chain carbon SP-1, which has completely unique properties, for example, allows to introduce clusters of various metals in its structure. And if such carbon film is applied to endoprostheses, their implant survival rate would be higher.

Studies are being conducted at 99 departments of the University. The chemical-pharmaceutical faculty over the past five years has won 33 federal and international grants. Articles of its scientists are quoted by prestigious World Science sites. Here new drugs are developed that would help to defeat the most serious illnesses. The Dean Oleg Nasakin shows micro-test tubes, each containing 100 mg of such substances. «If a compound is active in 10 tests out of 100, it becomes potentially interesting», explains Nasakin. Wehave testedaboutfivehundred such compounds».

In 2011, the specialty "Pharmacy" was opened and each year it has 30 graduates-pharmacists. But 50 years ago the chemical faculty was created following the needs of the chemical plant which was under construction in Novocheboksarsk. During half a century 800 ChuvSU graduates started their career at the enterprise. The construction of a tractor plant entrained opening of the engineering faculty.

In 60-70-ies industrial production in Chuvashia, compared with pre-war level grew 300 times. And who knows, if the Republic could have made such a spurt in economic growth, had it not been for the University foundation. For example, electrification headquarter of Chuvashia was organized at the oldest ChuvSU department – power supply of industrial enterprises, and all the calculations took place at the University.


Now at 16 faculties there are more than 16 thousand students. One thousand teachers work here, 130 of them are Doctors of Sciences, 570 – Candidates of Sciences. During 50 years ChuvSU has taught nearly 110 thousand professionals.

Cadres are the key to everything

The ChuvSU Foundation day is considered to be August 17, 1967. Moscow procrastinated for several decades with permission to open the University because in Cheboksary there was no good scientific basis. And only in the 60-ies the Volga branch of Moscow Power Engineering Institute became this base. Less than during six years 10 academic buildings and 5 dormitories were built. 

The branch quickly developed into an autonomous higher educational institution. And in 1967 the historical-philological faculty of the Pedagogical Institute was joined to it to form a multidisciplinary University. Vladimir Kovalev, the Dean of power engineering and electrical engineering faculty, recalls: he entered the Volga branch of Moscow Power Engineering Institute, and when he came back from summer vacation, he turned out to be a student of ChuvSU.

The University started with the five faculties and, of course, it needed teachers and leaders. The staff was searched for across the country. Ilya Prokopiev, in those years the Secretary of Chuvash Regional Committee of the Communist Party on ideology, went to Kazan University to persuade Professor Saykin to leave his quiet work at mechanical-mathematical faculty and to take responsibility for formation of a new higher educational institution. And later Semen Fedorovich personally chose all the teachers.

The University has always been focused on employers' demands. Among the partners, with whom the University signed a cooperation agreement, there are more than 400 companies. All new production is provided by engineering staff by the Chuvash University. For example, two years ago, Cheboksary electric equipment plant decided to launch a new kind of production — circuit breakers, and the head of this direction, searching employees, went to power engineering and electrical engineering faculty, and after defending diplomas employed 12 people.

Training in humanitarian is paid no less attention than training of engineers at the University. Thus, ChuvSU law faculty was one of the first in the country who passed public accreditation of the Russian Lawyers’ Association. According to the Dean, Elena Ivanova, the criteria for this audit were more stringent than during the State accreditation. The prestige of studying at ChuvSU law faculty is confirmed by competition — 13 entrants for one place. It has remained at this level for the last five years.

The formula of eternal youth

In recent years the largest ChuvSU faculty – the medical faculty has transformed almost beyond recognition. For already 49 years Larisa Merkulova has been teaching at the Department of Anatomy. As anatomy is a fundamental discipline, it turns out that all doctors –ChuvSU graduates, listened to lectures of Larisa Mikhailovna. And the medical faculty for half a century has trained already 15 thousand doctors to whom public health of the Republic owes its current level.  The Faculty prepares cadres not only for Russian clinics — there are a lot of foreign students here. At the medical faculty and the chemical-pharmaceutical faculty lectures were started to be read in English. Geography of entrants is expanding every year, and now the University has already one thousand students from 44 countries of the world. Returning home, graduates take with them not only knowledge, but part of the Russian culture as well. The ChuvSU has already developed its formula of eternal youth. And it helps the University to evolve, to change, to set new goals and to achieve them, to work ahead of time, because the future of the Republic and the country is created here.
