EVALUATION AND GRADING – UNDERGRADUATE COURSES

The evaluation scheme for each course shall contain two parts: viz., Internal evaluation (20% marks) and External evaluation (80% marks). The marks secured for internal assessment only need to be sent to university by the college concerned. After internal and external evaluation, marks are entered in the answer scripts. All other calculations, including grading will be done by the university using the software.

I. INTERNAL EVALUATION

The internal evaluation will be a continuous process. It will be done by the faculty members of the department of the institution where the candidate is pursuing the study. The internal assessment shall be based on a transparent system involving student’s performance in class tests, class room participation based on attendance in theory courses, assignments and seminars in respect of theory courses. For the test paper marks, at least one test paper should be conducted. If more test papers are conducted, the marks of the best one should be taken. To ensure transparency of the evaluation process, the internal assessment marks awarded to the students in each course in a semester shall be notified on the notice board at least one week before the commencement of external evaluation. There shall not be any chance for improvement for internal marks. The course teacher(s) shall maintain the academic record of each student registered for the course, which shall be forwarded to the university by the college Principal after obtaining the signature of both course teacher and Head of the department.

For 2/3 credit courses the external examination is for 60 marks and 2 hours of duration. Such courses have an internal component of 15 marks (60 external + 15 internal = 75 marks). 4/5 credit courses have an external examination of 80 marks and 2.5 hours duration. The internal mark for such courses is 20 (external 80+ internal 20 = 100 marks).
