ASQ - Education Division

Editor's Note: Standard Definition

Abstract: Quality management system (QMS) standards, the focus of this issue, provide a formalized, process-oriented approach to document and review the structure, responsibilities and procedures required to achieve effective quality management in an organization. ASQ/ANSI Z1.11:2011-Requirements for education organizations is an American national standard for educators and school administrators. Similar to other industry-specific standards published in recent years, Z1.11 is based on the widely-adopted ISO 9001 standard, which had 1.1 million certified users worldwide at the end of 2010, the most recent data available.
