  • Average of the two internal test marks is taken.
  • The question papers are set by the respective course teachers.
  • The proof reading is done by the Head of the Department.
  • After scrutiny the questions are forwarded to the Controller of Examinations before 10 days of the date of Internal test mentioned in the Handbook.
  • The answer scripts are valued by the course teachers and distributed to the students.
  • Complete transparency is ensured and students are asked to put checked and found correct with their signature on the papers.
  • The marks are entered online and a foil card is also maintained.
  • The valued answer scripts are collected in the Controller’s office and placed in the strong room for a semester.
  • The students are requested to represent the grievance committee if she finds any discrepancy in her marks. If the complaint of the candidate is found genuine it is immediately addressed by the Controller of examinations.
  • The CIA also includes two online/offline Quiz test, Assignment, Seminar and open book test.
  • The online quiz test may be conducted through LMS, Kahoot, Quizzizz, Schoology, EDMODO, Google forms etc. and the mark statement should be documented.
  • Three class test should be given to students between the internal test so that it help them to study their portion with ease.
  • Assignment and Open book test should be given in a way that it would help the students achieve the cognitive skills.
  • Seminars should assess the knowledge, understanding and higher order
    thinking level of students and marks be assigned.

Summative assessment

A student is permitted to take the summative examination in any course if she has put in atleast 75% of attendance in that course in a semester. If the attendance is 62%or above but below 75% , she shall be allowed to sit for the examination after the payment of the condonation fees.

To appear for summative exams, a student must have completed all the formative requirements. Students must have completed atleast one internal test. Clearance of fee dues is a pre-requisite for issue of Hall ticket for the semester examination and getting Transfer Certificate from the college.
