NAAC Assessment Process

For the assessment of a unit, the NAAC follows a three-stage process which is a combination of self-study and peer review. The three stages are:

  • The preparation and submission of a self-study report by the unit of assessment.
  • The on-site visit of the peer team for validation of the self-study report and for recommending the assessment outcome to the NAAC.
  • The final decision by the Executive Committee of the NAAC.
The self-study report to be validated by peers is the backbone of the whole exercise. Manuals have been developed to suit different units of higher education, with detailed guidelines on the preparation of the self-study report and the other aspects of assessment and accreditation.
