Prof. Dr. Muktiningsih Nurjayadi, M.Si., explained the profile of LAMSAMA assessor candidates recruited from various state universities, including UI, UGM, ITB, IPB, ITS, UNHAS, and UB. A total of 31 assessor candidates were recruited, with a focus on study programs in the fields of biology (7 assessor candidates), physics (6 assessor candidates), chemistry (8 assessor candidates), and mathematics (10 assessor candidates). “We hope these assessor candidates can contribute effectively to the LAMSAMA assessment process in 2024,” she hoped.

This time, the recruitment of assessors is limited due to LAMSAMA’s need for assessors from BH-HEIs related to the transition from the old instrument to the new instrument with an automated system. Thus, assessors are recruited based on recommendations.
