The assessment of students' performance in course work during and/or at the end of a course has to be done using examinations and alternate assessment methods. In an autonomous institution the examination process is as rigorous as in the university. With good facilities and committed staff, we in the CoE’s office, work towards creating an excellent examination system. Such a system supports us in the timely conduction of examinations, announcement of results and issue of related documents to students.
Dr. M. C. Hanumantharaju is a Professor in the Department of Electronics and Communication Engineering at BMS Institute of Technology and Management, Bengaluru, India. He has received his B. E (Electronics and Communication Engineering) degree from Bangalore University in the year 2001, M. Tech (Digital Communication and Network Engineering) degree from Visvesvaraya Technological University (VTU), Belagavi in the year 2004, and Ph. D (VLSI Signal and Image Processing) degree from VTU, Belgaum, in the year, 2014. He has authored two books and 50 technical articles in refereed journals and proceedings such as IEEE, Intelligent Systems, Particle Swarm Optimization, etc. He is currently serving as a reviewer for IEEE Transaction on Industrial Electronics, Computers and Electrical Engineering Journal, Journal of Microscopy and Ultrastructure, etc. His research interests include Design of hardware architectures for signal and image processing algorithms, computer vision, Register Transfer Level (RTL) Verilog coding, Synthesis and Optimization of Integrated Circuits (ICs), FPGA/ASIC Design.
Assessment and evaluation are an integral part of academic process. Given that the Institute has adapted an innovative curriculum for the new batch of students, the assessment and evaluation of students’ learning outcomes also need to be comprehensive and continuous. The examination cell is appropriately structured to carry out all the assessment and evaluation activities under autonomous system. It discharges the responsibility of conduction and overseeing both Continuous Internal Evaluation (CIE) and Semester End Examination (SEE), evaluation of student responses, publication of results, maintenance of all examination related documents and submission of periodic reports to higher and regulatory authorities.
The examination cell will coordinate with the Board of Examiners (BoE) of every department for the smooth conduction of its activities. The BoE of a Department functions in close liaison with the corresponding Board of Studies (BoS) and meets at least once in a semester before the commencement of the examinations. The BoE evaluates the methods of assessment and evaluation to be done for various types of courses and suggests any improvement if needed. BoE is responsible for the assessment and evaluation methods used in the scrutiny of CIE and SEE for their appropriateness to measure the learning outcomes expected of the course.
The important activities of the examination cell are as listed below:Planning and Conduction
