 and End of Semester Examinations (SE)

      Continuous Assessment (CA)

Continuous assessment shall be carried during the progression of the modules of the programme. This category will include assignments, written, oral (viva Voce) and practical tests depending on the nature of the module.

Assignments

      The objective of assignments is to reinforce the learning process by involving the participation of the students in finding the solution to a given question or problem which requires decision-making.

      There shall be a minimum of two (2) assignments per module per semester, both of which shall be done, and shall include both practical and theory.

 

Practical/Clinical examination

      The intention of Practical/ clinical examination is to measure the practical capability of learners through actual doing of a particular task or skill. The learner should demonstrate the ability to observe, carry out a procedure and deduce results. It generally reinforces the learning process and develops the learners’ practical ability.

      There shall be a minimum of one (1) practical/clinical test during the semester which shall be supervised by a panel of two or more institute tutors for duration of not more than one hour. The distribution of time is elaborated in the assessment plan of the respective module.

Written tests

      The intention of written tests is to measure the theoretical ability of students and evaluate performance in written work.

      There shall be a minimum of two (2) written classroom tests during the semester, which shall be supervised by a panel of two or more institute tutors for duration of not less than two (2) hours.

Oral examinations (Viva voce)

It shall constitute both Written and Practical/Clinical/Oral examinations. Written examinations for each module shall be conducted for duration not more than two (2) hours. Practical examinations shall be conducted for duration not more than one (1) hour. The distribution of time is elaborated in the assessment plan of the respective module.

Final Grade after End of Semester Examination

      Continuous assessment shall contribute 40% and semester examination 60% of the final grade.

Score Ranges and Grading System

      Marks will be awarded out of 100%. The marks so obtained from different assessment components will be clustered and graded as follows:

 

      GPA shall be computed from grades achieved by students in each semester by combining results of CA and ES examinations.

      Divide the total of number of grade points earned by the student for that module times credits assigned to the module by the total number of credits for module examined. For example

 Semester GPA for each candidate is calculated as follows:

     Semester GPA = Sum (P x N)

                                   Sum of N

      P - Grade point assigned to a letter grade scored by the student in a module

      N – Number of credits associated with the module in a semester

 

      Following completion of all modules in a given semester the performance shall be computed to obtain Grade Points Average (GPA) achieved by the respective candidate. GPA shall be calculated at the end of each semester and when the candidate is liable for offer of award a cumulative GPA will be computed and awarded accordingly.

      The Grade Point Average (GPA) computed from credits and grade weights shall be classified as shown below:
