Academic & Administrative Audit (AAA) Cell
The Academic and Administrative Audit is a peer review process including a self-study and a site visit by peers from inside and outside the institution. The purpose of an academic audit is to encourage programs, departments and the institution to evaluate their quality processes and standards based on predetermined benchmarks and to suggest activities required to produce, assure, and regularly improve the quality of the whole system in place including curricular and co-curricular programmes and activities and the infrastructure and support services.
Advantages of AAA
The advantages of an academic audit are manifold such as, but not limited:
For students: It helps in eliminating unnecessary workload and dwells mainly on those essentially required for the success of a student’s career.
For teachers: It helps in clarifying their roles and responsibilities and thus avoids conflicts.
For employers: It ensures availability of well-rounded students who can contribute from day one itself.
For the Administrators: It gives an insight into the overall quality of the institution including its strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats.
For Management: It ensures the proper use and effectiveness of the processes, systems, infrastructure, practices, infrastructure, HR and facilities in the practice of the institution and to implement corrective measures.
Principles of the Academic Audit
Based on the NAAC criteria, the AAA team draws attention to the following points:
Focus on teaching-learning and evaluation process:- how teachers teach (both conventional and innovative), how students learn (both formal and informal), and how best the students are assessed (both for life and career).
Define quality in terms of learning outcomes:- PO, PSO and CO mapping; and aligned with learning objectives.
Develop research culture:- a quest for new knowledge generation.
Teamwork:- collective responsibility, accountability and sharing.
Evidence-based Documentation:- of all programmes, activities and achievements.
Continuity and consistency:- based on the vision and mission of the institution.
Application of best practice:- best suited to the institution and the department.
Community orientation and Public perception:- campus community interaction and connectivity.
Alumni and placement:- both are brand ambassadors of an institution.
Continuous improvement:- continually and consciously strive to improve for the total quality development of the students, teachers and the institution.
Good Governance:- clearly defined hierarchy, administrative procedures and practices, systems, HR and other policies, transparent financial management, complaint resolution mechanism, etc.
Public Perception:- the accomplishment of the needs of the various stakeholders such as students, parents, teachers, staff, statutory authorities, society and the community.
