CSSS Academic Evaluation

The system of evaluation lays equal emphasis on the sessional assignments and end-semester examinations. The sessional assignments include seminars, tutorials, term papers, viva-voce and mid-semester tests. In the compulsory course, 'Techniques of Social Research' offered at the MA level, the students are trained in fieldwork techniques. As part of the course requirements, students are also assigned a Research Project where they are expected to apply theories, concepts, tools and techniques learnt in the classroom to field situations. Innovative attempts to integrate the book-view with the field-view have also been made in several other courses both at the MA and MPhil levels at the Centre. Over the years, these courses have been continuously revised and several new courses have been offered incorporating the new theoretical and substantive inputs.
