Academic course plan
After the subject allocation, course planning is to be finalized in course committee
with course instructors well in advance before the start of semester by referring
previous year documents. Minutes of the meeting should be recorded properly.
If necessary, appropriate corrections on course outcome statements and blooms
levels may be carried out in the course committee meeting, record it in the minutes
and communicated to Dean (Academics) and Controller of Examination through HOD
and the Principal.
Guidelines for preparing the course
- Based on the Bloom’s taxonomy level
of the course outcomes, content delivery methods
to be chosen.
- Course outcomes with the level of K3 and
above, to practice minimum any two of the active
learning process, online tutorial, assignment,
case studies etc.
- Course outcomes with the level of K2, in
addition to test, any one of the other assessments
may be considered to ensure the basic concepts
understanding. Use google forms to conduct
quiz, MCQs etc, on key topics.
- For each course outcome, schedule for conducting
other assessments should be planned.
- Assignments should not be either copy-type
from other assignments or reproduction of the
existing materials and have to confirm the
learning level of the students. It may be of
class assignment, individual topic or group
- Tutorial problems should be of think and
do level and/or open ended problems type.
- Open book test, case studies, etc., are also
for higher level CO assessments.
- Appropriate, possible, manageable and optimum
number of assessment methods should be chosen.
The number of assessment methods for course
outcomes should be proportional to the level
of the course outcomes.
- Target and threshold should be meaningful.
It should reflect the significance and hardness
of course outcomes.
Implementing and Monitoring
- Immediately after the formation of LMS of
the courses, each course instructor should
share it with co-instructors, HOD, and Dean
- HODs should monitor the progress of academic
activities periodically and ensure that the
content delivery methods and assessments methods
against each course outcome are correctly followed
as per the plan.
- Immediately after the completion of delivery
for each course outcome and before the start
of next course outcome, the other assessments
for the particular course outcome should be
- Immediately after the evaluation of internal
assessment tests, evaluation of the particular
course outcomes should be completed and declared
to students along with internal marks earned.
(I test – CO1, II test – CO2,3,
III test – CO4,5)
- Before the last working day, evaluation of
the all course outcomes should be completed
and internal marks should be declared to students.
- Within one week of the last working day,
by forming department level committee to audit
the LMS to verify the quality of the process
and to check for all the necessary documents
are in the order as per the course file check
