How Can You Improve Your NAAC Ranking?

Headquartered in Bangalore, the National Assessment and Accreditation Council or NAAC is an autonomous entity funded by the UGC (University Grants Commission) for the accreditation of Higher Education Institutions (HEIs). It is one of the most reputed accreditation agencies that aims at making “quality” a defining parameter for higher education in India.

The NAAC accreditation process enables HEIs to -

  • Realize their achievements
  • Analyze the internal work challenges
  • Work for continuous progress & quality education

According to the revised NAAC accreditation framework, 70% of the weightage is given to the timely submission of accurate institutional data & compliance self study (SSR) reports, while 30% is assigned for peer judgment. The NAAC accreditation process involves a detailed assessment that includes the Key Indicators, Qualitative Metrics, & Quantitative Metrics.

The Key Indicators for getting NAAC accreditation include the following.

  • Curricular Aspects
  • Teaching - Learning and Evaluationv
  • Research, Innovations, and Extension
  • Infrastructure and Learning Resources
  • Student Support and Progression
  • Governance Leadership and Management
  • Institutional Values and Best Practices

Most of these criteria, for NAAC Accreditation, require Self-Study or SSR Reports. The time range for these reports is five years. Compiling such a huge amount of data manually can take up to 3-4 months and still there may be some errors. A college ERP can help institutions to compile the required institutional data along with necessary documents & generate highly accurate reports. Thus, minimizing the workload of college faculty & helping them get prepared for the NAAC evaluation.
