Brief about ADAA system:
The Development and Quality Management Affairs (DQMA) regularly collects data of students, alumni, faculty, facilities, and services. This is conducted for the purpose of assessing institutional effectiveness and ensuring delivery of the University mission and achievement of its goals. Data generated through this process is utilized for enhancing University planning and resources allocation.
Different tools and instruments are utilized to assess University performance such as: the Key Performance Indicators (KPIs), self-assessment using the 11 accreditation standards of the Education Evaluation Commission-Higher Education Sector (EEC-HES, formally known as NCAAA), and other performance measurements selected by academic and administrative departments. To maintain consistency and effectiveness of the process of assessment between colleges in the three University campuses, the DQMA adopted the Automated Data for Analytics & Assessment (ADAA) system as a new comprehensive system that consists of three components:
- ADAA- Key Performance Indicators (ADAA-KPIs)
- ADAA Forms
- ADAA- Quality Assessment and Accreditation System (ADAA-QAAS)
To provide effective tools that facilitate analysis of the University academic and administrative performance.
The ADAA is implemented to achieve the following goals:
- To create one reliable source for the University data.
- To ensure data accuracy, consistency, and availability.
- To provide automation of report generation.
- To transfer the University into a paperless environment.
The purpose of this system is to create and maintain a database for University faculty and students. These data will be fed in the ADAA-KPIs software and provide the required reports. The items of each form were created based on analysis of requested reports from internal and external stakeholders. ADAA-Forms system consists of three forms:
- Faculty form that contains items related to faculty to be filled by all colleges.
- Program form that contains items related to academic programs to be filled by all colleges.
- University form that contains items related to University deanships and departments.
The Automated Data for Analytics & Assessment- Key Performance Indicators (ADAA-KPIs) Software is established to facilitate the management and analysis of data presented as KPIs. The KPI is a performance measurement tool to assess University academic and administrative department performance. ADAA-KPIs simplify visualisations of data as graphs and dashboards.
Automated Data for Analytics & Assessment- Quality Assessment and Accreditation System (ADAA-QAAS) is established to automate the evaluation process of University programs. It adopts the rating scales provided in the Self Evaluation Scales for Higher Education in relation to the 11 national standards of the Education Evaluation Commission-Higher Education Sector (EEC-HES, formally known as NCAAA). It is intended to serve as a guide for continuing improvements in quality.
