CBSE has commenced setting up a "peer assessor team" together for SQAA (School Quality Assessment & Accreditation), made obligatory in the year 2012, but various schools in Delhi are yet to take part and to apply. Central Board of Secondary Education had set a deadline of 3 years for them to apply that will expire next year.
The accreditation process was made mandatory in the year 2012. The "instrument(s)" for assessment and the guidelines for assessors and schools were accumulated in SQAA Manual. The schools have to get their documentation in sequence for the initial round of assessment by the team of empanelled external agencies.
Amity schools will be taking up the process the second time. Pushp Vihar, Amity International, got their paperwork together for the certification of ISO.
Despite the fact that many schools have not even taken the initial step, Central Board of Secondary Education is putting its external assessors jointly. CBSE’s circular stated "peer assessors will represent educators or principals with vast experience & rich insight in school education processes." It will also carry out an online screening test together with MCQ’s on SQAA manual & on case studies.
