Evaluation Criteria


  • The Continuous Internal Evaluation (CIE) is prescribed for maximum of 40 marks. Marks prescribed for test shall be 30 and for assignment is 10. The CIE marks for test in a theory Course shall be based on three tests and generally conducted at the end of fifth, tenth and fourteenth week of each semester. Each test shall be conducted for a maximum of 30 marks and the final marks shall be the average of three tests. However, to support slow learners, improvement tests will be carried out to help them gain the average. The remaining 10 marks shall be awarded based on the evaluation of Assignments/ Unit Tests/ written quizzes that support to cover some of the Course/programme outcomes. Final CIE marks awarded shall be the sum of test marks and assignment marks making a maximum of 40 marks.

  • In the case of Practical, the CIE marks shall be based on the laboratory journals/records (30 marks for continuous evaluation based on conduct of experiment, viva and report writing and one practical test (10 marks) to be conducted at the end of the semester.

  • The IA marks in the case of Mini Project (in 5th Semester), Projects and Seminars in the final year shall be based on the evaluation at the end of 8th semester.


  • Assignments are given to students after completion of each unit of the syllabus and comprehensively cover all of the important aspects of each topic in a particular unit.
  • Completing the prescribed assignments will greatly help students prepare for the internal assessments and the final exams. All the assignments will be evaluated and based on the performance of the students marks will be awarded for each course.
  • The Student Assistant for the course will neatly script solutions to assignments, and after due checking and correction by faculty, these solutions will be scanned and made available on the faculty webpage for all students to access and download.
