Abstract—This paper explores a development of the new tool for the performance assessment and the quality enhancement of the educational institutions. The paper describes a PAKS (Personality, Ability, Knowledge, Skills) based competence model for the assessment of faculty members in academia. We authenticate the usage of the PAKS based model and challenge that this is a very rare model available for the performance enhancement in academics. We believe that if PAKS based model is incorporated in any academic institution for the competence management, fruitful results would be obtained for the up gradation of faculty and the institution. We have tried to integrate this competence management system with one of the Artificial Intelligence tool, the Expert system so that the decision making for the performance appraisals and the self appraisal of the faculty members would become a transparent and result oriented process.
