The Italian National Agency for the university and research evaluation (Agenzia Nazionale di Valutazione di Università e Ricerca - ANVUR) funded in November 24, 2006 with the Law 286 (art. 2, par. 138-140). On expiry of the first Board of Directors, we believe it is time to take stock and try to evaluate the work of those who have been called upon to rationalize the quality evaluation of the Italian University System. In this work we will focus only on the aspects of the evaluation of university teaching envisaged in the ANVUR - AVA system. The AVA system was aimed, among its other objectives, to strengthen selfassessment of the quality and effectiveness of the university educational activities. In this paper, we will compare, in particular, AVA current regulations with what is actually achieved and achievable by the universities, both from a logical and technological point of view. Finally, regardless of the different techniques of assessments adopted by the various universities, it is hoped that the Agency may in the future provide a single system of analysis of the results of the evaluation process, flexible and open to innovative proposals coming the statisticians that deal with the assessment of the quality of teaching. We feel that the Statistical Information System for Evaluation of Educational SISVALDIDAT1 could be the system having the above-mentioned characteristics.
