OBE-Assessment and Evaluation

The evaluation phase is a systematic process that determines the effectiveness of the instructional design. Assessment involves in cognitive domain (thinking, knowledge), psychomotor domain (doing, skills) and affective domain (feeling & attitude) . It consists of two parts: Formative assessment is collection of information about student learning during the progression of a course or program in order to improve students' learning. Summative assessment is gathering of information at the conclusion of a course or program to improve learning. When used for improvement, impacts the next group of students taking the course or program. External evaluations conducted ensure the robustness of the assessment process. The assessment quantitatively gauges the performance whereas evaluation qualitatively observes the outcomes of the learning activity and suggests the remedial measures for filling the gaps between expected outcome and actual outcomes. The evaluation phase takes the results of 360̊ feedback and finally it closes the loop by prescribing the improvements/gap filling activities in the course.

In mapping of assessment tools with Bloom's taxonomy cognition levels rubric is a set of criterion for assessing student work or performance. Rubrics are particularly suited to learning outcomes that are complex or not easily quantifiable, for which there are no clear “right” or “wrong” answers, or which are not evaluated with standardized tests or surveys. Assessment of writing, oral communication, critical thinking, or information literacy often requires rubrics. In every Practical Laboratory subject there are two components:-

  • Internal - Continuous Assessment and Evaluation covers 60% weightage of maximum marks allocated for lab.
  • External - End Term University Practical covers 40% weightage of maximum marks allocated for lab.

The Continuous Assessment and Evaluation is further divided as follows:

  • Attendance : The marks will be assigned according to attendance in lab classes. The allocation of marks is in accordance with attendance component in DECA.
  • Continuous Lab Performance : Every experiment will be assessed for 10 marks and total evaluation will be made for (n x 10) marks.
    • Where n is total no. of experiments performed in the lab during the semester.
    • At the end of the semester (n x 10) marks will be scaled on 45% of Internal (60%) component.
  • 2 Mid – Term Viva Voce : Two mid-term internal viva-voce will be carried out each of 10% weightage of maximum internal marks allocated for lab.
  • Assignment : As described in Tutorial & Assignment policy.

* As per the new scheme of University for Batch 2021 & onwards (Students admitted in Session 2017-18 and onwards) the weightage of assignment has been allocated in internal assessment (IA) component of theory papers, hence the continuous lab performance component will have 65% weightage.
