Quality Enhancement Cell

Newports Institute of Communications and Economics focuses on Quality Enhancement to ensure good quality education and for continuous improvement.

Quality Enhancement Cell demonstrates the effectiveness of their academic programs in providing high-quality education that positively impacts students. Furthermore, most accrediting bodies and others concerned with quality assurance are also requesting that institutions assess students learning outcomes as a means of improving academic programs. This has led the HEC to develop methods for assessing the quality of academic programs. Assessment is a systematic process of gathering, reviewing and using important quantitative and qualitative data and information from multiple and diverse sources about educational programs, for the purpose of improving student learning, and evaluating whether academic and learning standards are being met. The process concludes when assessment results are used to improve students’ learning. The elements of a successful assessment program include.

  • Purpose Identification
  • Outcomes Identification
  • Measurements & Evaluation Design
  • Data Collection
  • Analysis & Evaluation
  • Decision Making Regarding Actions To Be Taken
