Evaluation in education needs to be more systematic and deliberate, so that the results are not unfair or uninformative. Moreover there is an interrelationship between the objectives of teaching, the methods and materials employed in institution. The objectives of teaching should determine what materials and methods are to be employed and these in turn should lead to the evaluative techniques used, such that they examine the extent to which the objectives are fulfilled by the teaching learning process.
Examination department is headed by Controller of Examinations and is responsible for conducting examination, declaring results and awarding degrees as per the provisions of Andhra Pradesh Universities Act. Controller of Examinations works directly under the control of Hon’ble Vice Chancellor. The University follows the semester pattern of examinations.
The evaluation of answer sheets are done by external examiners. The answer sheets are masked before evaluation, so that examiners do not know identity of candidates. The assessed answer sheets are then moderated by another subject expert for discrepancy in assessment, if any. The moderated answer sheets are scrutinized for checking again whether all questions have been evaluated and whether the total of marks given is correct. The final mark sheet is then prepared by unmasking the answer sheets and entering the hall ticket numbers of the students in the mark sheet.
University tries to give the result to the students as early as possible. This system requires actually much time to receive the result. The results and mark sheets are completely computerized.
