Bloom’s Taxonomy

We are following Bloom’s Taxonomy for teaching, learning and evaluating process to improve the skills of the students.  It can be used to increase student understanding of the learning process. Teachers can understand the complex cognitive development and how lower-level skills build into higher-order thinking (e.g., recalling facts and comprehending previous problems allows a student to apply their experience to similar problems).

All levels of assessments are:

  • Base Level (Remembering and Understanding)

ABSENT 0.0 AAA ABSENT
Cі = Credits earned for course i in any semester
Gi = Grade Point obtained for course i in any semester
n  =  refers to the semester in which such course were credited

Calculation of Grade Point Average semester-wise and part-wise is as follows:

 

GRADE POINT AVERAGE [GPA] = ∑i Ci Gi/  ∑i Ci

 

Sum of the multiplication of grade points by the credits of the courses offered under each part

GPA = ——————————————————————————————————————

Sum of the credits of the courses under each part in a semester

 

Calculation of Cumulative Grade Point Average (CGPA) (for the entire programme):

A candidate who has passed all the examinations under different parts (Part-I to V) is eligible for the following part wise computed final grades based on the range of CGPA.

 

CUMULATIVE GRADE POINT AVERAGE [CGPA] = ∑n∑iCniGni / ∑n ∑iCni

 

Sum of the multiplication of grade points by the credits of the entire programme under each part

CGPA = —————————————————————————————————————

Sum of the credits of the courses of the entire programme under each part
