Assessment is an essential and integral part of the teaching/learning process.
Assessment for every semester is divided in two parts.
- Internal Assessment
- External Assessments
Normally, assessment for a subject comprises a written paper of 60 marks to test the comprehension of the subject and 40 internal marks.
1. Internal Assessment
The internal assessments comprise of two tests of 10 marks each and an assignment of 20 marks which is for applied knowledge based on self-study/field work. Objectives and the procedures of assignment (date for submission etc.) is announced on ERP. A copy is sent to the examination department for further action and information. All Internal Assessments’ Marks are entered in the ERP and a hardcopy of ERP PDF document is submitted to the exams department before the semester ends.
2. External Assessment
At the end of the course faculty submit two sets of different question papers along with model answer papers. Evaluation of papers is submitted in the ERP and a hard copy of ERP PDF document is submitted to the exams department within one month of the exam date. If it is possible, then faculty shares feedback a view to further improvement.
At the end evaluation and submission of marks by respective faculty, Examination departments announces the result. To pass a subject, student must score minimum 40% marks in both – internal and external assessment and overall 50% in a subject. A student is allowed to keep term if he fails maximum 6 subjects.
If a student is failed in more than 6 subjects, then he is treated as year down and not promoted to next year. Year down student can appear for the failed subject during the year and if he passes subject and per the criteria mentioned above he is allowed to take admission.
