The Quantitative Audit Checklist is an Excel tool (downloadable below) you will use to collect all the quantitative data for the participatory audit procedure.

The document is divided in 8 different TABS. This is the main structure of the document:

Inside each of these areas, you will find a set of charts which are numbered in reference to the area and topic they will help us analyze. (This is the way charts have been referenced: KEY_AREA_NUMBER.TOPIC_NUMBER.NUMBER_OF_CHART)

Each chart also has a set of notes referenced with the number of the chart that it corresponds to. This notes, will help you understand the information that is required in each of the charts, and the way each of them should be filled-in.  Please, read the notes before filling-in any information.

Which data should my RPO gather? We propose to gather data from the previous Academic Year XXXX_YY, and data at 31st december XXXX (of the previous year) in cases regarding academic staff, as those numbers could vary along the year. In any case, it should be specified if the RPO has gathered data from another year for any reasons. Along the document we have specified the relevant years data should be collected from, XXXX being 2015 in the case of Plotina RPOs and AY XXXX_YY being 2015-16.

This is a flexible document, that will have to be adapted to the reality of each of the RPOs, regarding structure and specific terminology.
