In our institute assessment and evaluation is done to improve and not to prove. Assessment and evaluation of students is done in tune with Program Outcomes (POs) and Course Outcomes (COs) of each course of the program. Any program consists of different learning experiences spread over different sites viz. classroom, laboratory, library, field, and other relevant sites. The achievements of students learning outcomes are measured through well-defined assessment whose purpose is to assess and provide feedback on student learning so that the student can improve his performance. The continuous feedback is useful to the learner and also to the faculty so that faculty can change the methodology to ensure learning of students.
We not only want to improve academic performance of the students, but we also wants to improve the overall ability of the students in technical, social and cultural field that reflects his future. For this 5 hours per week in first three semesters are allotted for student’s centred activity.
