YU's Self Assessment Process

In partnership with the Azrieli Graduate School and the Institute for University-School Partnership


In order to assure continuing excellence of the overall education provided by S. Daniel Abraham Israel Program member Yeshivot, YU has designed and conducts an assessment process which allows Yeshivot and Seminaries to explore and build on their strengths while at the same time identifying areas for enhancement. In partnership with the Azrieli Graduate School and the Institute for University-School Partnership, a survey instrument was introduced to these schools and they have each independently initiated their own self assessment process based on a comprehensive questionnaire and a rubric with measurable criteria and guidelines. Each school tailored the process to maximize the utility for them as an institution and as educators.

The self assessment process includes a comprehensive site visit to the Israel school. The site visits usually involve one to two days in each school interviewing staff, faculty and students; sitting in on classes and observing the day's activities. Led by Dr. Scott Goldberg, Director of the Institute for University-School Partnership and Dr. Hillel Davis, Vice President for University Life, other YU representatives, an Israeli based educator who YU and the school jointly select, this process assures that our mutual students are receiving the very best quality education on an ongoing basis.


MASA enables thousands of Jewish youth to spend a semester or a year in Israel in any of over 160 programs, helping them build a life-long relationship with Israel and a firm commitment to Jewish life.

Since 2003, MASA has been a catalyst in the developing new and exciting, quality programs which express the multi-faceted experience of Israel.
