Exams are an important part of the higher education process and are required to provide students with accurate grades. Tura Government College is a North Eastern Hill University-affiliated college, so it follows the university's examination criteria. Internal assessment and external or end-of-semester examination are the two methods of examination used. Internal assessment is weighted at 25%, while end-of-semester is weighted at 75%. In our institution, the mechanism for dealing with examination queries is always transparent, time-bound, and efficient.
Internal Assessment is part of a broader system of continuous evaluation that includes class tests, tutorials, assignments, projects, and presentations. If a student is unhappy with the fairness of the evaluation, they will discuss it with the course instructor and go over the answer scripts for verification and justification of marks.
It is transparent, time-bound, and efficient, just like the semester examination. For student grievances, the Grievance Redressal Cell keeps a complaint/suggestion box. If students discover errors in their results, they can file a complaint with the Exam Committee, who will forward their complaint to the Principal, who will then forward it to the University.
Internal and external assessments are used to assess students' knowledge in various areas. Internal evaluation of student learning outcomes includes an assessment of knowledge and skills, as well as progress made in accordance with curriculum requirements.
Internal assessment is a never-ending process. Based on their performance in internal exams, faculty can identify slow and advanced learners, and students can be counselled to improve their performance. Internal assessment was incorporated into the semester system in 2015, with a 25% weighting. The Academic Calendar is used to determine dates and times. As a North Eastern Hill University affiliate institution, the institute uses the North Eastern Hill University assessment mechanism on a regular basis to examine students' academic achievement. Internal exams are worth 25 points, with promptness, sincerity, and task completion deducting 5 points. The internal test questions are developed by the subject managing faculty to include an equal number of questions from each unit covering the entire topic. The Science stream has departmental practical examinations. Attendance and performance are among the factors used to grade the practical examination. Internal examination results are posted on the Departmental bulletin board and saved in softcopy for future reference.
The performance of the student in the internal evaluation and the final exam determines the course's outcome. The effectiveness of a college in ensuring that students achieve general educational goals is partly assessed through the program's annual learning outcomes review process. The results of each course taken as part of a specific programme are added up for one student, and the results of all programme participants are averaged to determine the specific programme outcomes. The entry of students into higher education institutions, whether in India or abroad, is used to gauge success in the graduate programme.
Course outcomes are more specific statements about what students should know and be able to do at the conclusion of each course. They are the abilities, knowledge, and behaviours that students acquire while enrolled in a class. Effective learning outcomes demonstrate the degree of accuracy, the number of correct answers, or some other type of measurable information; in general, the standards explain the level to which a student must study in order to be judged adequate. The achievement of Program, Program specific and course outcomes is evaluated by the institution using two methods: direct method and indirect method. The direct method includes internal assessments, laboratory performance, project work and assignments, and end-of-semester exams. Feedback, extracurricular activities, and higher education are examples of indirect methods.
