Awareness of Teacher Educators towards Assessment of an Institution

Dr. Sr. Philomina M J

The National Council for Teacher Education (NCTE) and National Assessment and Accreditation Council laid stress on quality of teacher education at every level. The efforts of NCTE and NAAC to ensure and assure the quality of Teacher Education Institutions (TEIs) in the country signaled in uplifting the authenticity of teacher education. The NAAC developed the methodology for assessment and accreditation of TEIs and the manual for Self-appraisal of Teacher Education Institutions. The evaluation procedure is not an external factor but it assesses the effectiveness and credibility of the institution in achieving its own educational objectives. The motivation behind the process of assessment is its excellence in all aspects. The process of assessment and accreditation helps the institution to analyze its strengths, weaknesses, opportunity and threats (SWOT) and making their programmes more relevant and useful to the students and its employers. NAAC has identified seven criteria as the basis for its assessment and accreditation encompasses all the process of an institution. The NAAC assessment process lays focus on the institutional developments with reference to three aspects like quality initiatives, quality sustenance and quality enhancement. The present study aims at assessing the awareness of prospective teacher educators (27 M.Ed scholars and 13 M. Phil scholars) towards evaluation of an institution. Survey method with random sampling technique was adopted in this study. Results revealed that female teacher educators have more awareness towards the evaluation of institutions than the male teacher educators.
