WHAT IS ACCREDITATION

Formal recognition of the quality of


an educational program / Institution
by an external - independent agency
on the basis of impartial assessment
on the basis of well defined criteria

INSTITUTIONAL/PROGRAMME
ACCREDITATION
Institutional Accreditation
evaluation of overall institutional quality, but it does not focus on
individual academic programmes.

Programme Accreditation
evaluation of a specific academic programme of study, rather than
an institution as a whole.

WHO DOES ACCREDITATION IN INDIA


Institutional accreditation by National Assessment and
Accreditation Council (NAAC)
An autonomous body established by the UGC in 1994

Technical Programmes
A totally independent body
National Board of Accreditation (NBA)
Diploma level to Post Graduate level in Engineering and Technology,
Management, Architecture, Pharmacy, Hospitality and Mass
Communication

SIGNIFICANCE OF ACCREDITATION
At National Level
Students and parents to select the institutions and programs for
admission.
Employers in deciding about the institutions for recruitment of
graduates.
Institutions to avail the benefits from regulatory bodies and funding
agencies institutions.
Institutions in deciding about transfer of students from other
institutions
At International Level
Mobility of students for pursuing higher studies and employment in
other countries
Growing number of institutes , types (univ, deemed, private, autonomous,
programs
g
affiliated )) and p

BENEFITS OF ACCREDITATION
Students get quality education and better employment
opportunity.
Alumni share their experience and participate in curricular
updates in view of emerging technology and tools.
Development of faculty benefits of realization of efforts,
opportunity of attempting more complex problems,
problems career
advancement, consultancy & sponsored R&D
Exchange of views opportunities supplement each other

Minimal Model
Often numeric and law-based
Provides a prescription for a minimal core and very general parameters for
the
h rest off the
h curriculum
i l

Does not encourage continuous improvement

Input-Output Model
Often involving direct prescriptions of curriculum and faculty
composition
Makes the accrediting process uniform and potentially fair
Relativelyy easyy to maintain

Stifle innovation and creativity in the curriculum

Outcome Model
Focuses on the objectives and outcomes of the program
Requires evidence of measurement and attainment of objectives and
outcomes

Too much data may be collected and analyzed periodically

VISION AND MISSION


Vision is a futuristic statement that the institution /
department would like to achieve over a long period of time
Mission statements are essentially the means to achieve the
vision
For example,
Vision: Create high-quality engineering professionals
Mission: offer a well-balanced programme of instruction,
instruction
practical experience, and opportunities for
overall
personality development.

24

PROGRAM EDUCATIONAL OBJECTIVES


(PEOS)
Program educational objectives are broad statements that
describe
the career and professional accomplishments
that the program
is preparing the graduates to achieve.
Guidelines for the PEOs
PEOs should be consistent with the mission of the Institution
The number of PEOs should be manageable
PEOs should be achievable by the program
PEOs should be specific to the program and not too broad
PEOs should be based on the needs of the

constituencies

P
Program
g
outcomes
t
are narrower statements
t t
t th
thatt d
describe
ib what
h t
students are expected to know and be able to do by the time of
graduation.

Guidelines for the POs


Program outcomes basically describe knowledge, skills and
behavior of students as theyy progress
p g
through
g the program
p g
as well
as by the time of graduation.
POs should not be too broad
They must align with the Graduate Attributes
They must reflect all the Graduate Attributes

32

COURSE OUTCOMES (COS)


1. Student-focused, not professor-focused
That means: learning not coverage-oriented
2. Alignment between course, program, and institutional levels
Course outcomes need to reflect both the objectives and coutcomes that the academic
program represents as well as the broader mission of the institution as a whole
3. Focus on abilities central to the discipline
Course outcomes should help prepare students for what is important to the discipline of
which the course is a part
4. Focus on aspects of learning that will endure
Teaching students new modes of thinking is likely to have an impact on their future;
having them memorize facts tends to be much more short
short-lived
lived
5. Are limited to manageable number
Learning outcomes should focus a course on a few (say, 4-6) key purposes that have a
realistic chance of being accomplished within a semester
6. Specific enough to be measurable

Most important and fundamental to OBE


33

PUBLISHING AND DISSEMINATING VISION


AND MISSION, PEOS, POS, COS
Awareness to all the stakeholders on the defined Vision and
mission, PEOs, POs, COs
Publishing in websites,
websites curricula books,
books display boards etc.,
etc
Awareness workshops to students and faculty periodically

Prepare stakeholders to reinforce with the activities vis--vis


achievement of Vision and mission, PEOs, POs, COs

OUTCOME BASED ACCREDITATION

Assessing the quality of the outcome based


education (OBE) programme by an external
agency against well defined outcome based
parameters/criteria

ACCREDITATION CRITERIA
1. Vision, Mission and Program Educational Objectives
2. Programme Outcomes
3. Programme Curriculum
4. Students Per formance in the Programme
5. Faculty Contributions
6 Facilities and Technical Suppor t
6.
7. Academic Suppor t Units and Teaching-Learning Process
8. Governance, Institutional Suppor t and Financial Resources
9. Continuous Improvement

PROGRAM SPECIFIC CRITERIA


Program Criteria provide the specificity needed for interpretation
of the bachelor level criteria as applicable to a given discipline.
Requirements stipulated in the Program Criteria are limited to the
areas of curricular topics and faculty qualifications/exper tise.
Example:
CSE must include probability and statistics, discrete mathematics, mathematics
through differential and integral calculus; sciences (defined as biological, social, or
physical science); and engineering topics (including computing science) necessary to
analyze software, and systems containing hardware and software components.
p
of engineering,
g
g, basic science,, and mathematics
ME must include Principles
(including multivariate calculus and differential equations); to model, analyze,
design, and realize physical systems, components or processes; and prepare
students to work professionally in both thermal and mechanical systems areas.
