Many of the NAAC accreditation criteria requires reports. Assembling the data and creating these reports that require 5 years of information is time consuming and a small mistake is difficult to pinpoint. Putting together these reports can take anywhere between 2 to 4 months, depending on how your data is accessed. A good education ERP can do this for you in just minutes and in fact it is now mandatory for NAAC accredited institutions to have a college management software.
An Education ERP, does not just help you to compile reports, it also is invaluable in getting an institution to evaluate itself on different parameters and improve areas that show a need for improvement. A closer look at the NAAC accreditation criteria will give a better insight on the value of an education ERP.
NAAC Accreditation Criteria
NAAC has split the 7 criteria for accreditation by providing specific parameters for each. There is a predesigned weightage provided for each criterion, all equalling up to 1000 points. Each criterion is further split into Key Indicators (KI), each having a predefined weightage. Assessment is done under 3 heads for each of these level
- Predetermined weightage Wi(Totalling 1000)
- Peer Team Assigned Key Aspect Grade Points(KAGP) on a scale of 0 to 4
- Key Aspect-wise Weighted Grade Points (KAWGPi=KAGPi * Wi)
The final score is calculated using Criterion-wise Weighted Grade Point (CrWGP)by the total weightage of that criterion as given below.
