The Annual Quality Assurance Report (AQAR) of the IQAC

All NAAC accredited institutions will submit an annual self-reviewed progress report to NAAC, through its IQAC. The report is to detail the tangible results achieved in key areas, specifically identified by the institutional IQAC at the beginning of the academic year. The AQAR will detail the results of the perspective plan worked out by the IQAC. (Note: The AQAR period would be the Academic Year. For example, July 1, 2012 to June 30, 2013)

Plan of Action for 2014-15 proposed by IQAC:

Plan of Action


To take steps to motivate students to learn through pre class participation it is proposed to introduce /practice Surprise Quiz, as a method to ensure pre class preparation by the students.

To encourage pre-class preparation by the students a surprise quiz is conducted before the beginning of the class. This helped the faculty to gauge the pre-preparation and comprehension of the students of the subject matter. The instructions/discussion of the day was accordingly tuned and conducted particularly those relating to case studies. Non-performing students were counselled and guided.

Further benefits that resulted were: When students write incorrect answers they received instant feedback by the professor after the quiz. Class attendance improved substantially. Students recognized that surprise quizzes are designed to help and therefore resentment has diminished or is eliminated. It is also observed that this small and simple measure has given good result as seen in the class participation. Another benefit was increase in final grades of the students and better performance at the interviews by the students.

In order to expose students to the field experience and expertise Guest lectures by industry experts for various courses is proposed to be increased.

In order to expose students to the field experience, lectures by industry experts are arranged for various courses in all programs. The lectures were more of an interactive type and have resulted in active participation by students and have resulted in true learning.

It is proposed to take frequent and open house feedback from students from each class for the purpose of taking remedial action before a particular deficiency or shortfall becomes a high magnitude problem.

It is the practice of the institute to take a feedback on the academic aspect at the end of every trimester. While the practice is being continued and remedial action taken soon, we have also initiated the process of identifying deficiencies in the entire system including campus living. A third party survey through online questionnaire was administered to all the students. Since this was an online as well as third party survey, feedback was most uninhabited.

This survey has classified the students into 3 categories viz. satisfied, neutral and dis-satisfied. The survey also brought out the reasons for being so for the two extreme categories of satisfied and dis-satisfied. This has helped to resolve issues concerned with dis-satisfaction almost instantly. Issues that needed further augmentation such as infrastructural facilities of network, internet etc., were also attempted for sooner resolution. The process is being repeated twice a year.

To fill the gap between theories and practice (thats hard to bridge) by introducing Experiential Learning Technique (ELT).

The institute adopted the ELT and implemented it to enhance student learning. The process consisted of defining the scope and the methodologies for conducting, monitoring and evaluating the implementation of ELT. These details of ELT are given in the Annexure I.

To consider Outbound training for students for developing team bo
