The Impact of the Accreditation Incentive Fund (DIA) Intervention on the Quality of LPTK Management
AbstractHigher education institutions/the Educational Personnel Education Institution (LPTK) have experienced an increase in producing qualified teacher in this couple of years. At the same time, universities have responsibility to increase the qualifications of teachers and the quality of teacher. Data collected from Accreditation Incentive Fund (DIA) program is used to increase the management capacity of the Institute of Education Personnel Management (LPTK) in 2009 to 2012. The data of this study include five aspects of DIA fund utilization, namely: improvement of governance, program management, learning processes, academic atmosphere, and information systems. This study investigates the impact of the accreditation incentive fund intervention on the quality of LPTK management. We hypothesize that DIA incentive funds to LPTK has an impact in improving the quality of LPTK management. Based on multilevel analysis, we demonstrate that the DIA intervention improved the quality of management significantly. The results indicate that the impact of DIA incentive funding can be only seen when the PGSD group received the DIA (experimental group) compared to the partner group and the non-educational group.
