National Assessment and Accreditation Council
launches Revised Accreditation Framework
Revised Accreditation Framework launched by National Assessment and Accreditation Council in its efforts to remain relevant and globally acceptable, NAAC has taken cognizance of the changing trends in higher education
Revised Accreditation Framework – By Council
The Revised Accreditation Framework which became operational in July 2017, is ICT enabled, objective, transparent, scalable and robust.
The Revised Accreditation Framework is a subtle combination of System Generated Scores (SGS) with a combination of online evaluation (70%) and Peer evaluation (30%) which would usher in high level of transparency.
The Revised Framework is more ICT intensive and ‘outcome based’.
The current grading pattern of NAAC (A++, A+, A, B++, B+, B, C, D) would be continued for accreditation.
A system of applying minimum qualifiers for achieving a grade has been designed and will be implemented.
For example, Universities should score a minimum of 3.01 in Criteria 1, 2 and 3 for achieving a “A” “A+” “A++”grade.
