  1. Teaching strategy:

Lecture, Case method, Discussion, Active learning (Apply what students are learning), Cooperative learning (small groups work together for achieving a common goal), Integrating technology, Distance learning.


  1. Assessment strategy:

Distribution of Marks:

Marks distribution for theory courses:

Forty percent (40%) of marks shall be allotted to continuous assessment, i.e. quizzes and homework assignment, class attendance and class participation. The remaining marks will be allotted to Term Final Examination, which will be conducted centrally by the University. There will be two examinations for each theoretical course in the Term Final Examination, which will be of 3 hours duration.

The distribution of marks for given theory courses will be as follows:

No. Description Marks
(i) Class participation 10
(ii) Homework assignment(s), term paper and quizzes, class tests, case study, presentation 30
(iii) Final Examination (3 hours) 60
Total 100


Marks distribution for sessional courses:


The distribution of marks for a given Sessional/Field Work/Tutorial courses will be as follows:

No. Description Marks
(i) Class participation/contact with teacher 10
(ii) Internal criticism/evaluation/observation 60
(iii) Final Jury/Viva-voce 30
Total 100

Bases for class attendance marks (both for theory and sessional):

 Continuous Assessment:

  1. The total marks (40%) of CA will be constituted of class participation or Attendance 10% and class tests, homework assignment(s), term paper and quizzes, etc. 30%.
  2. The class tests, homework assignment(s), term paper and quizzes, etc. carrying 30% will be arranged according to the following table:
No of the credit of the course Total no of assessments required No of best assessment to be considered for grading
2 3 2
3 3 2
4 4 3

At least one class test will be taken from each section. But if there is only one class test in one section that single test will be counted as the section best.

  • Duration of a class test will be 20-45 minutes and it will preferably be taken during class hour.
  1. Each of the continuous assessment will finally carry equal marks or weightage. Answer script of the assessment may be shown to the student, but it would not be returned to them. The concerned teacher would submit the evaluated answer-scripts and attendance register to the Head of the discipline.
  2. If a student repeats a course for which he obtained F grade (in any previous term) he may be allowed to repeat the continuous assessment (i.e. class test/quiz/ assignment/term paper) to improve the grade. However, the marks of class participation will be taken from the previous record. If a student wants to retain his marks of the second part of C.A. he has to apply to the Head through concerned course teacher within 4 weeks from the beginning of the term. Basis for awarding marks for class attendance and participation will be as follows:
Attendance Marks
90% and above 10
85% to less than 90% 9
80%  to less than 85% 8
75% to less than70% 7
70% to less than 65% 6
65% to less than 70% 5
65% to less than 70% 4
Less than 60% 0

 Thesis evaluation:

In a similar manner, the distribution of marks for a given Thesis will be as follows:

No. Description Marks
(i) Evaluation 60
(ii) Viva-voce 30
(iii) Contact/Discussion/Communication with the supervisor 10
Total 100

There will be two Examiners (one is Supervisor) to examine the Thesis. Each examiner will evaluate the Thesis separately and the average marks will be considered for a grading. However, if the marks given by the First and Second Examiners vary 20% or more, a Third Examiner to be appointed by the concerned Examination Committee from the outside of the University will evaluate the Thesis. Among these numbers, average of the closet two numbers will be considered for grading. However, if the marks given by the Third Examiner happen to stand at the middle of the marks given by the first Two Examiners, the average of the three marks will be considered for grading………………….

Grading system and grading scale:

The total performance of a student in a theory course is based on a scheme of continuous assessment made through attendance & class participation, a set of quizzes, class tests, homework/assignments and a Term Final Examination. The assessment in sessional/tutorial course(s) is made through observation of the student at work in the class/field/laboratory, viva-voce and quizzes. A letter grade with a specified number of grade points is awarded in each course for which a student has registered. A student’s performance is measured by the number of credits that he/she has completed satisfactorily and the weighted average of the Grade Point is required to be maintained for satisfactory progress. Similarly, a minimum number of earned credits should be acquired in order to qualify for the Degree, as prescribed in Article 16

Letter Grades and corresponding Grade Points will be awarded in accordance with provisions shown below:

Numerical Grade Letter Credit Grade Point
80% or above A+ (A plus) 4.00
75% to less than 80% A (A regular) 3.75
70% to less than 75% A- (A minus) 3.50
65% to less than 70% B+ (B plus) 3.25
60% to less than 65% B (B regular) 3.00
55% to less than 60% B- (B minus) 2.75
50% to less than 55% C+ (C plus) 2.50
45% to less than 50% C (C regular) 2.25
40% to less than 45% D 2.00
Less than 40% F 0.00
