Scheme of Assessment

There are two components in learning assessment at our college :

  • Continuous Internal Assessment (CIA) or Internal Evaluation
  • End Semester Examination (ESE) or External Evaluation

1. CONTINUOUS INTERNAL ASSESSMENT

Assessment of CIA for Theory of Under Graduate Programmes (with effect from the academic year 2011 - 2012 onwards; and 2015-2016 onwards)

The maximum marks for each course awarded for CIA is 25 and end semester examination is 75 for all UG programmes and the total maximum marks is 100.

Part I Tamil/Hindi, Part II English and Part III: Core/Allied/Major Based Elective Courses

CIA Examination will have three components viz.,
a) Internal Class Tests,
b) Assignments / Compositions and
c) Rehearsal Examination

  • Internal Class Tests

During every semester, each student should write three tests for each of the course prescribed for him/her in the curriculum. The duration of each class test is one hour. Each test is conducted for a maximum of 25 marks. Of the three tests, the best two tests written by the candidates are taken for the calculation of CIA. The mean score secured by each student in these two tests is converted for 10 marks. Each test is conducted with a time interval of 20-25 days covering the syllabus taught during the respective periods.

  • b) Assignments / Compositions

During every semester, each student must prepare and submit three assignments/compositions for each of the course prescribed for him/her in the curriculum. Each assignment/composition is evaluated for a maximum of 10 marks. Of the three assignments/compositions, the best two are taken for the calculation of CIA. The mean score secured by each student in these two assignments/compositions is converted for 5 marks. Each assignment/composition is obtained from the student with a time interval of 20-25 days.

  • c) Rehearsal Examination

Every semester, one centralized Rehearsal Examination for each course is conducted by covering the entire syllabus prescribed for that course. The duration of Rehearsal Examination for each course is three hours. Each examination carries a maximum of 75 marks. The marks secured by each student in the Rehearsal Examination are converted for 10 marks.

The mark secured by each student in all these three components is summed up and the same is awarded as CIA mark out of 25 for each course.
