Abstract
What is the role of student experts in evaluation panels? Are they token representatives of the masses of customers or are they professionalized partners in quality management? This study sheds light on how students see their role in the Finnish Higher Education Evaluation Council’s (FINHEEC) evaluation teams and how other members of the evaluation teams and the evaluated institutions appear to view the students’ knowledge and competences. In addition, graduated student experts describe how the evaluation experience benefited their studies and subsequent working life after graduation.
