A continuous assessment system in semester system (also known as internal assessment/comprehensive assessment) is spread through the duration of course and is done by the teacher teaching the course.
The continuous assessment provides a feedback on teaching learning process. The feedback after being analyzed is passed on to the concerned student for implementation and subsequent improvement. As a part of concurrent evaluation, the learners shall be evaluated on a continuous basis by the Institute to ensure that student learning takes place in a graded manner.
Concurrent evaluation components should be designed in such a way that the faculty can monitor the student learning & development and intervene wherever required. The faculty must share the outcome of each concurrent evaluation component with the students, soon after the evaluation, and guide the students for betterment.
Individual faculty member shall have the flexibility to design the concurrent evaluation components in a manner so as to give a balanced assessment of student capabilities across Knowledge, Skills & Attitude (KSA) dimensions based on variety of assessment tools.
Suggested components for Concurrent Evaluation (CE) are:
- Case Study / Caselet / Situation Analysis – (Group Activity or Individual Activity)
- Class Test
- Open Book Test
- Field Visit / Study tour and report of the same
- Small Group Project & Internal Viva-Voce
- Learning Diary
- Scrap Book
- Group Discussion
- Role Play / Story Telling
- Individual Term Paper / Thematic Presentation
- Written Home Assignment
- Industry Analysis – (Group Activity or Individual Activity)
- Literature Review / Book Review
- Model Development / Simulation Exercises – (Group Activity or Individual Activity)
- In-depth Viva
There shall be a minimum of three concurrent evaluation components per full credit course and five concurrent evaluation components for each half credit course. The faculty shall announce in advance the units based on which each concurrent evaluation shall be conducted. Each component shall ordinarily be of 10 marks. The Institute shall however have the liberty to conduct additional components (beyond three/five). However the total outcome shall be scaled down to 30/50 marks for full credit and half credit courses respectively. Marks for the concurrent evaluation must be communicated by the Institute to the University as per the schedule declared by the University. Detailed record of the Concurrent Evaluation shall be maintained by the Institute. The same shall be made available to the University, on demand.
At the end of Concurrent Evaluation (out of 30/50 marks) the student does NOT have a facility of Grade Improvement, if he/she has secured any grade other than F.
