All Indian Council of Technical Education (AICTE) has requested all technical institutes, MBAs and MCAs to register on the PARAKH portal at parakh.aicte-india.org on a mandatory basis. It is a student learning assessment initiative with the aim of bridging the gap between academia and the technical, professional and industry needs. This will provide a platform for students to self-assess their learning outcomes and 21st century life skills, the board said.
The notice issued by AICTE explains that this is an assessment portal and not an exam. Students can register on the portal developed by AICTE to measure their academic, social, cognitive, critical and behavioral development during their studies. Faculties and institutes have been asked to participate.
