CONTINOUS MODE OF EVALUATION

The Continuous Mode of Evaluation (CME) implemented in our college for internal assessment offers a structured and effective approach to gauge student progress and comprehension throughout their academic journey. The process begins with students actively engaging with their course material by compiling frequently asked questions (FAQs) sourced from textbooks, promoting a deeper understanding of key concepts and fostering critical thinking skills. Next, students review and learn the written answers from their notebooks, reinforcing their understanding of the subject matter and enhancing retention. The culmination of the CME process occurs during weekly tests, where students demonstrate their knowledge and proficiency by answering the questions they have prepared and studied. This iterative cycle of question formulation, review, and evaluation not only promotes active learning but also cultivates self-directed study habits and a sense of ownership over one’s academic progress. By emphasizing continuous assessment and feedback, the CME approach facilitates ongoing improvement and ensures that students are well-prepared to excel in their academic pursuits.
