This paper looks at the recently instituted MEXT requirement that all Japanese universities undergo an external accreditation evaluation every seven years. Universities are to be evaluated in multiple categories, with the assessments in each category published. They also are to receive grades: pass, probation, and fail. This paper examines the ramifications of, not to mention the opportunities afforded by, this new policy, focusing particularly on the possible impact on EFL education and educators.
