Internal Quality Assurance Cell is a single-point mechanism to design, implement, monitor and assess quality enhancement initiatives across the University. The IQAC works in close collaboration with several activities and functions of the University, especially, the Career Development Centre, Centre for Learning Futures, VentureStudio, Office of Admissions and Financial Aid, besides the Offices of the Dean of Students, and Planning and Strategic Initiatives.
IQAC collects and analyses data on metrics and parameters that index the robustness of academic practices at the University. It also conducts workshops and training sessions on quality assurance in the University.
IQAC has dedicated staff who maintain a dynamic and updated database of facts and figures pertaining to the University. IQAC has an advisory committee comprising senior faculty and staff, who advise on the nature and function of the initiatives of IQAC.
Ahmedabad University has automated the data management for all of its functions. The admissions office, finances, course development, course registration, classroom and learning management, assessment and evaluation, as also human resources functions are all on modular and inter-operable digital systems. IQAC harnesses data from these systems and is in the process of building analytics to extract information from this data which will aid in better design and strategy.
IQAC conducts an annual, longitudinal survey of learning competency of students. This is an anonymous test to assess competency averages across student batches and programmes. The data and the analysis we generate serves as a pointer for programme-level improvements and signaling to potential employers.
