Abstract

The research aimed to 1) study the new method in scoring for the process indicators of the internal educational quality assurance in high education using correlation coefficients of hesitant fuzzy linguistic term sets, 2) compare the assessment score on educational quality of curriculums in the Faculty of Science, Ubon Ratchathani Rajabhat University according to the process indicators of the internal education quality assurance in higher education between correlation coefficients of hesitant fuzzy linguistic term sets application and traditional method in scoring. Twenty four participant experts appointed by the Higher Education Commission, were selected by purposive sampling. Research instrument were self-assessment reports of eight curriculums in the Faculty of Science of Ubon Rachathani Rajabhat University and evaluation forms. Statistics used in data analysis were the correlation coefficients of hesitant fuzzy linguistic term sets and mode. The method consisted of the followings: 1) creating a hesitant fuzzy linguistic term sets to explain the criteria of the scores of each indicator; 2) creating a hesitant fuzzy linguistic term sets to explain the experts’ opinions that used to evaluate the educational quality of each indicator; 3) finding the correlation coefficients value between the sets in 1 and 2; 4) interpreting the correlation coefficients and a maximum value of correlation coefficients would be a determinant of the score for each indicator. The study found that the score of each indicators of each curriculum were equivalent to 0 and 1, which was lower than the mode of the educational quality evaluation.
