Quality Assurance initiatives taken by MIS/IQAC
- Enrollment Data
Enrollment data is collected from depts/colleges every year by the Statistical Cell of DR Colleges. In the absence of IT support/resources and proper controls, it was difficult for them to ensure the quality. MIS/IQAC Cell took initiatives to compile the Master List of courses (year-wise) from Handbook of Information and other sources. It was ensured that all faculties, all departments, and all courses are included. Steps have been taken by MIS/IQAC Cell to improve the quality of data to ensure completeness and correctness of data
- Examination Data
Earlier, during data compilation for various surveys, data collected from various sources (e.g. manual results, computerized results, departmental results etc) would be summed up and sent. In the absence of any common list of courses it was difficult to ensure whether data about all the courses have been included. The format for data collection was prepared with pre-filled courses, and DR (Exams) was requested to send the data in that format. The pre-filled data saved their time too, and at the same time ensured completeness of data and verification of courses at the same time.
- Researchers Data
Data about Researchers is collected at various sources like R&S Branch, General Branch, Secrecy Branch, Thesis Section etc. Meetings were held with the concerned dealings, format of data studied, problems and communication gaps were identified. MIS/IQAC took the source data (in MS Word format) from R&S Branch and converted it into MS Excel format for data analysis and has identified the data flow from enrollment till award of degree. The various result notifications (of syndicate) about award of PhD are in MS-Word format and contain useful information about researchers. Efforts are on to streamline the process in this direction and to get quality data/information about research statistics.
- International Students Data
Data storage and collection procedures have been refined to cater various national and international surveys. The information layout has been useful for internal purpose as well. Templates have been designed to collect data about various other activities like International Students data/MoUs signed by PU etc.
