National Assessment and Accreditation Council (NAAC) the nodal accrediting institutes of higher education institutes is planning to increase the grading parameters under its assessment profile.
It aims to grade disciplines, specific courses and faculty in the following years. The process is also likely to go online. “The groundwork for the initiative had already begun. “We have developed a few profiles already and are in the process of creating a manual for this accreditation process.”, Prof H A Rangnath, Director NAAC said.
The council will soon introduce discipline oriented accreditation as it will aid students in selecting the best institute for the discipline of their choice. Among other ventures, the NAAC is working on assessment of trans-national courses, as well as rooting for state and central regulatory bodies to ensure qualitative control over new and existing institutions.
