Procedures for Internal assessment of different courses are enumerated in the following section.
For all theory courses minimum two tutorials/assignments are given. Two centralized internal examinations are conducted by the examination cell. Exam time table is published one week in advance. Question paper prepared by the faculty member is scrutinized and verified by the department heads. The evaluation of answer scripts are done as per the scheme of evaluation and returned to students. The faculty discusses all the questions in the question paper and their correct answers. Suggestions are given to the students who need to improve and the ones who performed well are appreciated. The feedback on their performance helps the student to perform better next time. Finalized marks are verified by the teachers and students before displaying on the notice boards. Marks are intimated to the parents and regular PTA meetings are conducted. Therefore, the process of continuous internal assessment is carried out with complete transparency.
Assessment for the lab courses is done at the college itself. The total number of experiments/ works is divided into different lab cycles. Evaluation of individual students is done based on their outputs of experiments/ works and daily viva. Output and viva marks are daily updated on student's work record. At the end of the semester, lab examination is conducted under the supervision of department heads.
Conduct of experiments (Observation in Lab)
- All lab manuals are prepared by the concerned faculty well before the commencement of the semester.
- Each class is divided into two groups and both the groups are sent to separate laboratories.
- In each laboratory the students are further divided into groups not exceeding four in number
- Each group performs the experiment separately under the guidance of the Lab Incharge and the Lab Instructor.
- The Observations are recorded and verified by the faculty handling the lab class.
- The total number of experiments given in the syllabus are grouped into cycles of experiments. This is done to make teaching learning more effective.
Continuous Assessment in the laboratory
- As per the affiliated University ordinance the scheme of assessment for laboratory courses is as follows:
- Practical records/ output 60 marks after the completion of each experiment
- Regular class viva 10 marks after the completion of each experiment
- Practical examination conducted by the college out of 30 marks (25 marks for practical examination and 5 marks for Viva) conducted as per the schedule in the Academic Calendar.
The objective of conducting comprehensive examination is to assess the comprehensive knowledge gained in basic courses relevant to the branch of study. As per the university guidelines each department conducts oral examination for the students. The marks secured by the students are published in the notice boards of respective departments. At the end of the semester, a comprehensive viva is conducted by an assessment committee consisting of an external subject expert/ industrial expert.
An assessment committee is nominated by respective department heads. The committee evaluates the seminar of individual students based on their presentation ability, ability to answer questions and reports submitted by the students.
Project evaluation is done in two semesters as per the guidelines of APJKTU. During the seventh semester, preliminary project evaluation is done at every department by an assessment committee. Two progress evaluations are mandatory for the preliminary stage. Final evaluation of the project takes place in the eighth semester. Two progress evaluations and one final evaluation is mandatory. An external expert is included in the assessment committee for the final project presentation and viva voce.
