Evaluation method generally divided into Direct and Indirect tools i.e. the formative and summative assessment approaches adopted by the department to measure student achievement are as follows:
1.Formative Evaluation Approach:
Continuous assessment of each student is done by faculty during practical sessions. Unit wise assignments are given to students and key points for answers are discussed by faculty in the classroom. Mini project, major project, seminar work are used for formative evaluation of various subjects. Seminars are conducted for TE students and demonstration/presentation of Projects by BE students for formative assessment. Attendance of theory and practical sessions is continuously monitored by faculty members and if improvement is needed, defaulter students are warned and parents are also informed of the same. As Institute has adopted OBE system, attainment of TLOs is analyzed by asking questions to students after completion of the topic.
2.Summative Evaluation Approach:
At the end of the semester, term work marks are assessed based on evaluation sheets exercised throughout the semester. Attendance monitoring is done throughout the semester for theory and practical sessions. Mock theory and practical’s examinations are conducted periodically. Online Examinations and In-Semester examinations are conducted. Examples which have positively impacted the system: One of the best practices followed by the institute is that dissemination of names and scores of toppers are at various places and felicitation of these students are done during the annual gathering. this motivates all other students to improve their performance. Following are few significant achievements of students: 14 students are university rankers since 2010. 20 students presented a paper as their technical and communication skill improves through the formative assessment process. 20 students grabbed awards/prizes in the technical competition.
MCA Department Final Evaluation
1. Each regular student will normally appear for all the 25% credits in a semester out of the minimum number of credits required to obtain a degree.
2. A student who wishes to register to the third /fourth semester should have gained at least 50% credits out of the total number of credits offered at the first and second semester of the first year
3. Each regular student will normally appear for all the 25 credits in a semester. (For the program of 150 credits in Six semesters)
4. A student who wishes to register to the third semester/fourth semester should have gained at least 25 credits. (In case 50 credits offered per year)
5. A student will be considered to have “Completed” the Internship/Industrial Training upon the submission of certificate of completion, duly signed and sealed, from the Organization where the candidate worked during the Internship period. In case a student failed to submit the required certificate of completion duly signed by mentor/Organization then the student will be considered to have “Not Completed” the required internship/industrial training at the time of the declaration of the result. And hence such student will have to undergo the complete training.
6. Grade Point Average (GPA) & Cumulative Grade Point Average (CGPA) are calculated as follows: GPA = S( Number of Credits x Grade Points ) / S ( Number of credits ) 8.5) A student will be permitted to proceed to successive semesters but can appear for the main project & viva‐voce examination in the sixth semester, only if he/she secured a minimum CGPA of 5.0 and has not got any I grade in any course at that point of time. If the CGPA is less than 5.0, the student should improve the CGPA to 5.0 before appearing for the project & vivavoce examination. If a student has got any "I" grade he should redo the course when it is offered next. If that course is not offered he should do a duly approved alternative course, before appearing for the project vivavoce examination. However he/she should submit project report at the end of the project semester itself.
|Letter Grade||Range Percentage||Description of Performance||Grade Point|
|S||85% & Above||Outstanding||10|
|A||75% & Above But Below 85%||Very Good||8|
|B||65% & Above But Below 75%||Good||7|
|C||55% & Above But Below 65%||Average||6|
|D||50% & Above But Below 55%||Pass||5|
|F||Less Than 50%||Fail||2|
|E||Absent for final Exam||Exposure||1|
|I||Lack of Attendance||Incomplete||0|
7. Classification of Results At the end of program, the final results will be classified as follows:
CGPA QUALITATIVE CLASSIFICATION
(1) 7.5 & above First Class with Distinction **
(2) 6.0 & above, but below 7.5 First Class
(3) 5.0 & above, but below 6.0 Second Class
For the award of First class with Distinction the student must have passed all the courses in the first attempt.
