UGC to alter learning assessment parameters to bring continuity with the National Skill Qualification Framework



The University Grants Commission (UGC) will alter the learning assessment parameters in the draft National Higher Education Qualification Framework (NHEQF) to bring continuity with the National Skill Qualification Framework. The changes will be aimed at re-working the model to fit it into the four-year undergraduate programme.

To further this, the higher education authority will be holding a series of four consultative meetings with vice-chancellors and college principals. Till now, assessment or learning outcomes have been given to students from level 5 to level 10 in an ascending order of complexity, based on knowledge or skills or competency.

UGC chairperson M Jagadesh Kumar said, “This major reform is to align the NHEQF to be from level 4.5 to level 8 in sync with the NSQF. This change will help the mobility of students across institutes and disciplines.”
