Digital Assessment through Examineer

Outcome based educational approach has emerged as a key feature of the reform movement in the global education scenario. This is driven by the fact that accreditation agencies worldwide now focus on outcome based accreditation. The National Board of Accreditation (NBA), India has recently become a permanent signatory to the Washington Accord, and drives the adoption of the outcome based accreditation framework within India.

So what exactly is outcome based education? What are the main elements of the outcome based accreditation framework? What are the challenges and opportunities for Institutions in India to transition towards an outcome based educational approach? This workshop aims to address such pertinent questions, raise awareness of outcome based education and NBA accreditation.
