© 2016 IEEE. Institutions in higher education generate terabytesof data that has great value to shape future of nations. This Big Data is in heterogeneous formats, very current, and in large volumes. We propose a framework to collect, scope and verify this large amount of data. Although the framework is explained in the context of institution accreditation in higher education, the framework can be applied in the fields of health-care, finance, marketing etc. Our framework is used to reduce human involvement in the collection and analysis of data, for the purpose of accreditation. The framework extends the scope of data collected to target the heterogeneous nature of the data. Finally, our framework helps to verify the data against a standard set by an accreditation body.
