BENGALURU: Colleges affiliated to Bangalore University (BU) which fail to send their faculty members for evaluation work will face face the heat when they apply for renewal of affiliation. From this year on, evaluation work will be linked to the affiliation process.
As per the new set of rules introduced by BU, colleges which send all their eligible faculty for evaluation work will get 25 marks during Local Inquiry Committee (LIC) visits when they apply for renewal of affiliation.
Speaking to Express, Registrar (evaluation)Prof Ningegowda said, “We have introduced a LIC score card for 250 marks from this year. Of this, 25 marks is for evaluation and colleges which fail to send teachers for evaluation work will get zero marks.”
Colleges which depute 90 per cent of eligible teachers will get 20 marks, 70 per cent teachers, 15 marks; 50 per cent teachers, 10 marks and below 50 per cent, no marks.
“We already have a set of measures which we can initiate under the examination ordinance against those who bunk evaluation work. With the new measures, we can directly target the principals and managements of the colleges concerned,” said Ningegowda.
He also said, “If colleges do not send their eligible teachers for evaluation work, we will consider that there are no faculties at all and submit it before the syndicate to disaffiliate the institution.”
During the evaluation of previous semester examination papers, BU had to face a lot of difficulties due to shortage of evaluators. “During the last exams, we found it hard to complete the process on time due to absence of most teachers, mainly for English and Commerce subjects,” explained Ningegowda.
‘Some Arrived Late’
On day one of the evaluation of ongoing under graduate examination papers for Semesters 1, 3 and 5, the turnout of evaluators was quite less. “There are over 600 eligible evaluators for English, but just 200 turned up. The total number of evaluators who attended evaluation work on day one was 2,500,” said Ningegowda. Despite detailed instructions, some teachers arrived late for evaluation work and were sent back. They were asked to come on time tomorrow.
