Important Points Regarding Revised Evaluation Plan:

 

Rest of the course structure document remains same as previously shared document at start of the semester. However, coverage of 8051 and 8086 might be limited in scope in comparison to ‘Course Structure Plan’ announced earlier (in detailed course structure shared at start of the semester) and this will depend on the progress in the course. The Main focus will be to introduce important aspect of both 8051 and 8086 in introductory level so that student could start leaning detailed concepts by themselves later.

However. the total numbers of evaluation components are reduced (as mentioned in the table above). .S CHOOL OF E NGINEERING D EPARTMENT OF E LECTRICAL E NGINEERING   The total marks for examination of different components (yet to be conducted) will have same marks weight age as indicated in the table until unless it is specified. it recommended that student should efficiently use the evaluation components (yet to be conducted) to raise their performance level and get good score. we experienced through multiple trials that it’s performance is poor particularly when more than 50-70 students are involved.. The initial number of evaluation components are decided keeping in mind that Blackboard Learning Management system will be working and could be utilized efficiently for evaluation purposes. . Due to these reasons. Since revised evaluation plan is intimated to students well before time therefore. Conducting those evaluation components in regular class/lab hours effectively reduces the number of teaching/contact hours as well as require much needed support system and raise synchronization due to rooms availability/time table classes etc.
