Ranking Frameworks : A Comparative Study

Authors(2) :-Ar Kanchan Garg , Dr. Prof. Prabhjot Kaur

Ranking frameworks and questionnaires are in practice to assess quality of education imparted and to rank institutes on this basis. Accreditations are also given after assessing the quality of education imparted. This paper is discussing and comparing different assessing indicators, their need and outcome of major assessing institutes/organisations such as QS, THE, NIRF, NAAC,NAAB, NCARB, COA etc. Assessment of any field in any organisation to maintain minimum set standards of quality in education creates interest to be superior than others. Ranking frameworks do not only assess and rank the institutes/universities rather provides transparency in front of the students who are looking for admission in the specific field. India had invented many basic concepts such as zero, decimal etc. in its early time. Quality of architectural education needs to be improved to compete at world level. This paper talks in particular about the ranking frameworks regarding architectural education as no exhaustive ranking frameworks are available for the architectural education.
