Teaching Learning AIDS and Methods-
All methods of teaching such as didactic lectures, interactive method, and project based learning, computer assisted learning, and experimental learning, seminars and dissertations are used by the teachers. ICT based teaching is given a thrust as a principal mode of teaching. Every attempt is made to attend individual students and find out their strength and weakness. In the Department planning the students are divided into groups basing on their common requirements. This division is not visible to the students as the Practical and tutorial groups are always divided as per the roll numbers. The teaching faculties design plans to touch the needy students during the learning sessions. It is meticulously planned prior to each session so that there will not be any feeling of inferiority among themselves. However depending on the Internal assessment performances (One of the Summative examination) a modified method of revision of topics are done for the students securing less(than average) marks.
Evaluation of Students and Curriculum-
Both formative and Summative evaluation is done through conducting Examinations .Both subjective and objective type of questions is used. Most advanced methods are used in designing the question paper as a feasible, acceptable, valid, reliable, objective, unambiguous and bias free. Before announcing the results of each examinationa Grievance redressal session is being held, giving a chance to each student to appeal on evaluation process if any.
Out of total 300 students trained so far only 39 students are left so far to clear the Summative examination conducted by Dr NTR UHS. The pass percentage is 87.
