Internal Assessment

Earlier, the process of continuous internal evaluation was in existence; however, the emphasis was different. It has been changed from teacher centered to student centric outcome based system. The process of continuous evaluation is employed through various tools like, assignments, online multiple choice questions, chapter tests, practicals and in-sem examination. These tools act as direct assessors whereas tools like, debate, quiz, survey, discussions, competitions, act as indirect assessors. To assess the predefined learning outcome, appropriate tools are employed and the record of the same is maintained in designed format. The strategy like double blind review is employed by the institute in assessing the practicals. At one end, faculty member assesses the student learning whereas opportunity is provided to the student for self-assessment. It is expected that, the assessment of faculty and student in this regards should match tentatively. Any major miss-match highlights lacuna in assessment. Either the student has rated high or has underestimated himself. In such a scenario, faculty is supposed to provide appropriate feedback to the candidate so as to achieve the outcomes. The assessment of practicals not only ensures the course outcome but also ensures the required achievement in terms of program specific outcome and program outcomes. This process also brings transparency in assessment and boosts confidence among faculty as well as students.

The online test of the students has relieved the faculty to certain extent from assessment work thereby making more time available to resolve students’ problems. Also the online test helps the learner to know exactly where the strength exists and where the weakness. As a result of this, the student can focus on weak part and improve the same.

Continuous evaluation through assignments helps to know the student capabilities to deal with subjective matter, express alternative and creative solutions, power of communication, covering breadth and depth of situation, and accordingly, train them.

Adaptation of tool like 360 feedback provides opportunity to assess the students indirectly at individual level. The seminars and projects are assessed based on program specific outcomes and program outcomes. The project reviews given by third party are taken into account seriously for improvement, if any.

The recently adopted tool like student profile helps to trace the successive progress of the candidate during the course of program and it helps the institute to strengthen the candidate through appropriate training in required domain.

The selection of candidate in various companies is used as a tool to assess and evaluate the institutional processes from the perspective of effectiveness. The analyzed results are provided by training and placement cell to IQAC for quality enhancement.
