Rating Methodology

Objective of ITI Rating

The ITI Star Rating achieves the objective of giving the prospective students an insight into the available opportunities at an ITI before joining them and allows comparison across ITIs. This would enable aspirants to make an informed decision when choosing ITIs during admission. It also provides the ITIs with an objective rating which can be used as an indicator of scope for improvement. Currently, 170 Government ITIs which had students graduating in 2019 have been rated..

Rating parameters

To create a student-centric ITI rating, the department has identified parameters which are outcome based and relevant to prospective students. The parameters have been bucketed into 3 categories.

Category Perameter Weightage in ITI Rating
Career Advancement Wage Employment 40%
Self Employment
Higher Education
Apprenticeship
Skilling Competition
Quality of Traning Pass Rate 30%
Trainees with Distinction
Instructor Vacancy
Machinery Availability
Industry Partnership Trainees sent for dual training 30%
Industry support for workshops/equipment
Industry Visits
Total 100%

How are ratings calculated for parameters?

The overall rating is out of 10 stars and is calculated as a sum of the star rating of the following categories:

1. Career Advancement: Maximum number of stars achievable for this category is 4. The sum product of the number of students going for each category of career advancement and its weightage is divided by the total number of students to arrive at the Career Advancement Score (maximum 5).  The weightage of the parameters is as follows:

Perameter Details Weightage
Wage Employment % students going for jobs (last academic year) 5
Self Employment % students going for self employment (last academic year) 3
Higher Studies % students going for higher studies (last academic year) 3
Apprenticeship % students going for apprenticeship (last academic year) 4
Skilling Competition % students going for apprenticeship (last academic year) 5
Total 20

This score is converted to star rating in the following manner:

Career Advancement Score Star Rating
>=4 4 stars
3.5 <= & < 4 3 stars
3 < = & < 3.5 2 stars
2.5<= & < 3 1 stars
< 2.5 0 stars

The data for career advancement has been collected from the department ERP as provided by ITI principals. The rating is available only for the ITIs who have provide data for at least 30% of students who have graduated in 2018.

2. Quality of Training: Maximum number of stars achievable for this category is 3. Each of the parameter values is converted to a score using a scale as follows:

Pass Rate Trainees with distinction Instructor Vacancy Machinery Availability Score
>=90% >=75% <5% >=75% 5
>=80% & <90% >=60% & <75% >=5% & <10% >=60% & <75% 4
>=70% & <80% >=50% & <60% >=10% & <15% >=50% & <60% 3
>=60% & <70% >=40% & <50% >=15% & <20% >=40% & <50% 2
<60% >=20% & <40% <=20% >=20% & <40% 1
<20% <20% 0

The sum product of parameter score and its weightage is divided by 10 to arrive at the Quality of Training Score (maximum 5). The weightage of the parameters is as follows:

Perameter Details Weightage
Pass Rate % trainees passed (last academic year) 2
Trainees with Distinction % trainees securing greater than 80% in the final exam (last academic session) 3
Instructor Vacancy Instructor availability against sanctioned posts (%) 3
Machinery Availability Machinery available in the ITI (%) 2
Total 10

This score is converted to star rating in the following manner:

Quality of Training Score Star Rating
>=4 3 stars
3.5<= & <4 2 stars
3<= & < 3.5 1 stars
<3 0 stars

The data for Pass Rate and Trainees with Distinction has been obtained from NCVT and SCVT. The Trainer Availability data has been obtained from the ITIs through a survey and from the Departmental database.

3. Industrial Exposure: Maximum number of stars achievable for this category is 3. Each of the parameter values is converted to a score using a scale as follows:

Trainees sent for dual training Industry support for workshop Industry support for equipment Industry visits Score
>=40% >=40% >=40% >=40% 5
>=30% & <40% >=30% & <40% >=30% & <40% >=30% & <40% 4
>=20% & <30% >=20% & <30% >=20% & <30% >=20% & <30% 3
>=10% & <20% >=10% & <20% >=10% & <20% >=10% & <20% 2
<10% <10% <10% <10% 1
0% 0% 0% 0% 0

The sum product of parameter score and its weightage is divided by 15 to arrive at the Industrial Exposure Score (maximum 5). The weightage of the parameters is as follows:

Perameter Details Weightage
Trainees sent for dual training % units which are under "Dual System of Training" mode (next academic year beginning in 2019) 8
Industry support for workshops/equipment % students trained in workshops setup/sponsored by industries (last academic year) 3
% students trained on machiney / equipment provided by industries (last academic year) 2
Lectures by Industry trainers % students who attended industry lectures 2
Total 15

This score is converted to star rating in the following manner:

Industrial Exposure Score Star Rating
>=4 3 stars
3.5<= & <4 2 stars
3 <= & <3.5 1 stars
<3 0 stars

The data has been sourced through a form from the ITIs about industry partnerships (Flexi MoUs) and the DST MoUs signed by them.
