assignments. for example. the annual system of examination and testing has failed to achieve the desired objectives. along with course outline. following strategy has been evolved to provide guideline for evaluation: i) Internal and external evaluation of scripts must be carried out. In the tutorial classes. It is also suggested that the tutorial classes must be made mandatory. It is strongly recommended that. other than the teacher concerned. ii) A clear mechanism for evaluation particularly internal evaluation must be announced and provided in writing to the students at the beginning of the course i. which must be focused upon problem solving. Other discussions may include ethical. There will be a need to use electronic devices for effective delivery of such material for certain courses. which must be delivered by prominent experts /economists.e. may also be discussed. It 7 . Some of these seminars may be delivered by a team of students. estimation of models and review of literature as per relevance of the paper. This trend must be discouraged. which may reflect whether student has absorbed the material. periodical homework / assignments must be assigned and duly evaluated. homework and quizzes may vary as per local environment. national and social welfare orientation activities. The instructor may not deliver lecture on the same topic. bi-weekly or at least once in a month. Besides. iv) Two types of seminars / workshops should be held in the which the department. These assignments may be given proper weightage in the final internal evaluation / awarding marks. Given the above problems. Besides. b) by a group of students or individuals to train them for teaching and reproducing the material absorbed. It must be followed by homework assignments. 10. Its focus must be on development of personality and patriotism. Presently. In addition to above. students must be given a chance to share their academic and other problems. Students do succeed to obtain good marks with shortcut methods and selective study. The seminars may be followed by homework. Teachers may introduce mathematical and other advanced techniques to teach such material. it is important to evolve appropriate strategy and techniques to test the students. v) As far as internal and external evaluation is concerned. Students must be given two assignments each month to make sure that they have covered the reading material. iii) To ensure full coverage of the reading material. it is popular to consult one book which is of low quality and provide selective study aimed at marks obtaining mechanism. needs and facilities available in the institutions concerned. it may be followed up by homework assignments. not comprehensive knowledge and proper training. during the course time frame work at least two /three seminars must be arranged on current / important topics.keeping in view the level and new developments. topics of international importance. it may consist of a summary of the lecture and its critical review etc. Assessment Strategy To assess whether students have gained and absorbed sufficient knowledge of the subject. moral. the weightage assigned to internal examinations. However. Planning for the seminars must be done in the beginning of the course and announced within the first two weeks of the session. within a span of four to six weeks. if possible. if he / she thinks that the seminar has covered the literature at the required level. which need not be based upon Economics. it is recommended that there must be at least one seminar in each course. prescribe them appropriate: course/papers for a) by experts.

is important that both types of evaluations must be made a part of degree awarding criteria. (Other university rules will apply. However. The evaluation must be carried out for each course and outcome of these evaluations must be discussed with teacher concerned. ii) Internal and external evaluation of the students will be carried out. Dual evaluation of teachers may be carried out: i) ii) by the students by the peer group / head of Department. Before announcing the result. homework and seminar etc. examinations. within two months of the final assessment by the faculty. vi) In the internal evaluation some weightage must also be assigned for attendance in class and participation of students in class discussions / seminars. the mid-year assessment and final assessment at the end of the year. in consultation with the department faculty / chair may decide the distribution of weightage for internal evaluation for attendance. after every year. However. fairness and objective orientated evaluation must be ensured. Teacher concerned. Average of the marks assigned by internal and external examiner will be reflected on the transcript. Evaluation of Papers/Courses After a detailed discussion. In this case. private students may be evaluated by the external examiners. of the concerned University. university will conduct examination. Assessment of private students will continue as being done at present)) 11. which will be called external evaluation. internal examiner will prepare a sample copy of the questions and external examiner may change it up to 75%. the assessment of students must ensure that students have gained sufficient knowledge at the required level and he / she is able to deliver on job. experts reached a consensus that present annual system of evaluation has failed not only to equip the students with needed knowledge but they are also unable to perform on job. The weightage for internal and external evaluation may be decided as per needs / facilities of the institution concerned.. 8 . Thus. 12. must verify the result. Teacher’s Evaluation The teacher’s evaluation must be carried out with an intention to improve teaching quality. iii) The instructor must report internal assessment to the department / institution chair twice in a year. It is proposed that 40% weightage of marks/division/grade may be assigned to internal evaluation and 60% for external evaluation.. three senior faculty members of the Department of Economics. Department head must send the internal examination / assessment results to the Controller of Examination. the following system for evaluation may be adopted: i) The Annual system may be continued in the institutions where it is considered that no alternative system is possible to be introduced at this moment. Second evaluation of the external examiner may be considered final. if he thinks there is a need to change the marks more than 10%. for all papers. Answer scripts must also be evaluated by the internal examiner and the internal examiner may change the marks (awarded by the external) up to maximum of 10%. The teachers must be advised to make up deficiencies in the coming years. The teachers who consistently fail to improve need not be allowed to teach the course(s). for each paper. Thus. He may return the script back to external examiner. Thus.
