This is circulated among the faculty to concentrate on weak areas and to strong areas to improve the performance of each student. A variety of learning tools are used for the acquisition of knowledge and skills. Role-play, case study, project-work, field experience, assignment, quiz, seminars, industry visits are some of the methods used.
The college follows a holistic evaluation system in which studentsí performance is measured throughout the whole trimester. Attendance of the students is given due weightage in the evaluation process as this is an important indicator of the studentsí commitment towards his/her studies. Students are debarred from appearing in the term-end examinations in case they are found, short of attendance in a particular trimester. Failing to meet a certain minimum criteria mentioned in Student Handbook, the student is liable to fail in a trimester. Few of the evaluation components which faculty design for their courses besides mid-term and end-term examinations, include, class tests, quizzes, assignments and projects. Performance in tutorial classes and participation in Academies and the Metamorphosis programme are also included in the assessment.
