As the management has decided to go for accreditation by NAAC, IQAC has organised a one day programme on “Preparation for NAAC”. The resource person was the former Director of IQAC, Osmania University which was accredited with A grade in 2008 during his tenure as the Director IQAC. During the programme he highlighted the Revised Assessment and Accreditation (A&A) Framework that  was launched by NAAC in July 2017. It is developed in partnership with stakeholders and have a distinct focus on data capture for quantitative assessment and process details for qualitative assessment. It represents an explicit paradigm shift making it ICT enabled, objective, transparent, outcome oriented and stake-holder friendly. In view of this the college has to gear up to the new process and build up the required documents. The three level accreditation processes would be more ICT enabled with Student Satisfaction Survey and Data Verification and Validation adding value to the process. 

The first level would be submission of Institutional Information for Quality Assessment

 (IIQA). On acceptance of the IIQA, institutions can submit their data /information online in the formats provided as   Manuals for Self Study Report (SSR).There would be no requirement for submission of hard copies of the SSR. He suggested to formulate criteria wise committees and start working on the Self Study Report. As 70% of the metrics in SSR are quantitative he emphasised the need to build up proper documentation required for both the quantitative and qualitative metrics, as stipulated in the Standard Operating procedure for Data Validation and Verification. The three level accreditation processes would be more ICT enabled with Student Satisfaction Survey and Data Verification and Validation adding value to the process. He has explained at length about how the metrics are assessed and GPAs are calculated. 

 

110 faculty members had participated in the programme. The programme was very useful and helped the participants in understanding the new guidelines and the whole process of accreditation by NAAC.
