Assessment and Evaluation

During a semester the student may be required to take the following tests and examinations for each course(s). Each instrument carries proportionate marks which are accumulated in total marks.

UMT is using Relative Grading Scheme, allowing the student to achieve a grade with respect to his / her ranking in the class. Students are formally evaluated by the resource person through different pedagogical assessment tools throughout the semester. A wide range of assessment methods are available to resource persons to evaluate the level of knowledge and skills acquired by students in a particular subject. The following two methods are employed at UMT, generally known as sessional evaluation and final term.

A combination of the following may be employed constituting sessional evaluation:

  • Case Study
  • Presentation
  • Assignments
  • Quizzes
  • Class Participation
  • Attendence
  • Projects
  • Viva Voce (for lab courses)
  • Mid Term Exams
  • Final Term Exams

Final Term Examination

A total of 100 marks are allocated to a course or a subject. These marks are normally assigned as per following 

Sessional work (65%) includes

  • Case Study
  • Presentation
  • Assignments
  • Quizzes
  • Class Participation
  • Attendence

End Term Exam (35%) (excluding project / internship / thesis etc.)

However, marks allocation or weightage may vary in some cases depending on the nature of the course or as deemed appropriate by the Resource Person.The Resource Person is supposed to announce the student’s sessional evaluation in the class and also display it on the notice board before the closing of classes.After classes are over, Final Term Examinations are conducted by the Office of Controller Examinations as per the date sheet.

Compiling Results

After the marking of the End-Term Papers, respective Resource Persons shall initially compile the result by adding the marks secured by the participants in Sessional Work and End Term Examination to complete the course evaluation. The percentage of marks secured by a participant are then converted into letter grades.

UMT has adopted Relative Grading method to grade its students. In this method, the difference between the highest marks of the class and the passing marks are divided to a total number of sub-divisions under which the letter grades are awarded from C-, C, C+, B-, B, B+, A- to A. Student having marks less than the passing marks is awarded “F” grade which carries zero grade points.

The definition of letter grades and corresponding grade points is illustrated in the following table.
