In India in order to ensure the quality of technical education, All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE) has established the National Board of Accreditation (NBA) in 1994 to formulate the criteria or standards, by which individual programmes in any pharmacy institution can be evaluated. This article mainly focuses on the revised norms of NBA accreditation for Pharmacy institutions as published in January 2013. The nine criteria identified by NBA in this revised document are briefly presented. Concepts like Programme Educational Objectives (PEOs), Programme Outcomes (POs), Course Outcomes (COs), and Mapping will be new to the readers to figure out in the latest document of NBA. Accordingly, this paper is written to describe the assessment method used to measure the PO via direct assessment of the course outcomes (Cos) as an improvement to previous practice where the COs were assessed indirectly using survey and examination results.
