The most important purpose of assessment and evaluation is to improve student learning. Assessment and evaluations are important tools for designing curriculum and instructional approaches as per need of students. It also plays important role in understanding overall effectiveness of programs and revising classroom practices. Well-designed assessments help students to use the knowledge and skills they have learnt and indicate their level of performance. As part of assessment, teachers provide students with descriptive feedback that guides their effort towards improvement.
All the assessments are well aligned with learning outcomes. The data collected through an assessment helps teachers determine students’ strengths and weaknesses as well as their overall understanding of subject. All departments adopted variety of methods to assess students’ prior knowledge and skills. Most popular method to assess the students are Formative and summative assessment.
Internal Assessment Policy: One of the major components of our education system is examination. The education process in any discipline of learning ends with examinations. The entire effort put in by the teachers on teaching and the student on learning is centered on getting good results in the examinations. Thus examinations have been overriding the process of education and are a matter of concern for stakeholders. We conduct two internal assessment tests, midterm and end term. Each test covers half of the syllabus. The tests are conducted for a maximum of 30 marks & 1 hour duration (Minimum 12 marks criteria for passing).

Evaluation is an important part of an aligned curriculum and an overall teaching and learning strategy because it is part of the feedback and development cycle that should be a part of any responsive and up-to-date teaching and learning strategy or plan.
Evaluations give students opportunities to speak to the lecturer about their experiences and impressions of the course content and the pedagogical approaches that have been used, and it therefore gives lecturers valuable insights into how the knowledge being taught and the teaching styles and assessments have been managed by the students.
