Policy For Continuous Internal EvaluationDownload as PDF

Continuous Internal Evaluation (CIE)

The evaluation of the students is an integral part of the teaching-learning process. The Continuous Internal evaluation (CIE):

  1. Encourages the students to progress continuously in the semester leading to thorough understanding of the course.
  2. Allows teachers to evaluate the performance of their students in accordance with the course objectives.
  3. Enhances the students’ abilities and skills such as creative and critical thinking, working in a team, communication skill, leadership abilities, etc.
  4. Distributes course work throughout the year reducing stress on the students.

Choice-based Component (CBC) of Internal Evaluation

We adopted the Choice-based Components for the internal assessment of the theory subjects which are useful for evaluating the various abilities of the students which cannot be tested otherwise with the semester end examinations (SEE). The performance of all the students will be evaluated internally on a continuous basis by the concerned faculty member. The type of the choice based component (CBC) of the assessment would be decided by the faculty member in consultation with the students based on the expected Course Outcomes (COs) and it would be announced in the class within the first fortnight of the semester. The suggestive list of these components is as given below.

List of Choice Based Components (CBCs) of Internal Evaluation:

1. Surprise test 7. laboratory work
2. Open book Test 8. Case Study
3. Home Assignments 9. Group Discussions
4. Tutorials 10. Viva-voce/Oral Examination
5. Mini Project 11. Seminar
6. Periodical quizzes 12. Any other component that the teacher considers necessary for assessing the student’s performance


The evaluation system adopted by the Institute has following components:

1. Continuous Internal Evaluation (CIE);

  • Two Internal Assessment Tests
  • Two Assignment Tests during semester per course.
  • Regular lab assignments every week during semester.
  • Two progress seminars for project in a semester.
  • Preliminary examination at the end of semester for all courses.

2. Semester End Examination (SEE)

The major reforms in CIE has been brought with reference to Outcome Based Education (OBE) model and quality of assessment. More emphasize has been provided on students evaluation with respect to course outcomes attainment. The question paper audit has been initiated for improving quality of questions. Faculty wise committee has been formed which verifies whether questions set are based on course outcomes and level of blooms taxonomy. For effective implementation of OBE Model and monitoring student’s outcome attainment, Continuous Internal Evaluation has been developed and deployed. The CIE system effectively assist in monitoring and evaluation of students centric learning outcomes. The internal assessment structure for theory and practical courses of UG is as tabulated below.

14. Faculty members should maintain the proper records of CBC undertaken for each class.
15. Faculty members may offer more than one CBC in a class depending on the interest of the students.


Grievance regarding the internal assessment tests is taken care of by the respective Departments. They have first authority over grievances against Continuous Internal Assessment. The internal examination will be based on the prescribed course plan. The respective subject faculties prepare question papers, which are then verified by the concerned Head of the department. After the evaluation of the internal assessment answer scripts, the scripts are given to the students to have an idea of their performance in the test. Based on the internal examinations conducted by the college, internals marks alloted. These internal marks are published on the concerned department notice board so that the students can check their marks and can clarify any queries regarding their internals marks with the concerned subject faculties. Once the queries are solved, the internal marks upload to the university portal. Complete transparency is maintained during the internal assessment tests through the adoption of the criteria given by the affiliating university. Students and faculty members are made aware of the transparency to be maintained in the system of assessment. This enhances transparency and rapport between the faculty members and students. Students should attain a minimum of 75 percent attendance for each course, and then only he/she can appear for the University Examination. Monthly attendance of each course published on the departmental notice boards, in order to aware the students about the same.

Points to be remember are,

  • If a student is not able to appear for internal examination due to medical or any genuine reason examination is conducted for that student as per norms, provided that he/she submits letter with required documents to the Head of the Department.

  • After preparing the assessments report it is shown to the students, if any grievances arise, there it can be resolved immediately and submitted by the concerned faculty to head of the department

Policy for the Promotion of A Friendly Environment for the DivyangjansDownload as PDF


We, at the G. S. Science, Arts and Commerce College, Khamgaon believe that the Differently Abled people (Divyangjan) are a precious human resource and that every human being must respect and recognize their rights and their dignity. Educational institutions have a special and significant role to play in this regard. The onus to lead the society with example lies on them above all. The Rights of Persons with Disabilities (PWD) Act, 2016 states that “the appropriate Government shall ensure that the PWD enjoy the right to equality, life with dignity, and respect for his or her own integrity equally with others.”


In accordance with this act and to ensure our constructive contribution for making life easy, enjoyable, and rewarding for the PWDs, our institute has the following policy in place:

  1. 1. Creating a barrier free environment for the Divyang people by constructing ramps, support structures, Divyang friendly classrooms, corridors, halls, and washrooms etc.

  2. 2. Providing appropriate assistance to Divyang students and visitors with the help of support staff and equipment like wheelchairs, walkers, walking-sticks, and audio-visual aids.

  3. 3. Ensuring that various welfare measures of the government, university and other agencies for the PWDs (Divyangjans) are implemented effectively and in time.

  4. 4. Providing a scribe and twenty extra minutes per hour to the Differently Abled during the university examinations as per the university letter dated 18 January 2018.

  5. 5. Ensuring proper and Divyang-friendly display of instructions and other necessary texts and signs at proper places.

  6. 6. The use of signage of male and female symbols, in accordance with local customs and standards, with raised outlines and bright colour contrast.

  7. 7. Human and technological support for learners with disabilities in and out of the classroom with the help of right resources and assistive technology, and with sensitive leadership, teaching staff and other members of the college.

  8. 8. To ensure the accessibility of software tools and technology for the people with disabilities.

  9. 9. Provision for enquiry and information for the Differently Abled in a friendly way and on priority.

  10. 10. On call medical assistance for the Differently Abled.

  11. 11. Regular sensitization of employees and students towards the needs of the Divyangjan.

Policy for A Green and Environment-friendly CampusDownload as PDF


G. S. Science, Arts and Commerce College, Khamgaon enjoys a unique privilege of having the largest campus (99 acres) among all the affiliated colleges of our university. We believe that it is our duty to keep the campus green and promote environment friendly practices not only among the employees and students, but also among the local community. For this, we have agreed upon having the following policy in place which is monitored and implemented by the Campus Enrichment Committee:





Distinctiveness of the Institution

To make substantial contribution to the overall growth of the region and the nation at large is a part of our vision. Keeping this in view, we have contributed to the growth of Khamgaon region by creating two quality sporting facilities- viz.: a ten-lane state of the art swimming pool and an indoor stadium with two wooden badminton courts.

It should be noted that such sporting facilities were not available in Khamgaon earlier. Due to our projects, the people of Khamgaon city and the surrounding region have been benefitted. Khamgaon is a draught-prone area and yet, we have not only built a swimming pool of good quality, but are also maintaining it successfully since 2015. The people of Khamgaon region have been greatly benefited with access to the swimming pool and the indoor stadium.

The other major significant contribution that we have made to the overall growth of the region is the creation of research facilities in a wide area. Students and researchers, particularly in the field of science now have a wide choice for undertaking research.

Our institute has a state-of-the-art ten-lane Swimming Pool and an Indoor Stadium with two wooden and two regular badminton courts constructed with financial assistance from the UGC as well as from fundraising by the institution. Both these projects have made our institution unique because no other college in our university has both these facilities- particularly, the kind of swimming pool that we have. We got 1.53 crores from the UGC and we raised 1.43 crores from our alumni, staff and local community. Both these projects were successfully completed within the stipulated period and are running successfully. It must be mentioned categorically, that Khamgaon is a draught-prone area and there is a frequent shortage of water here. Still, we have not only built a swimming pool, but are maintaining it round the year. We are doing this with the help of our own sources of water which are able to supply water to us due to the massive water conservation and rain water harvesting projects on our campus. Our students, staff as well as the people of Khamgaon and surrounding places are being consistently benefitted by both these facilities. Our vision is to empower the local youth and community. With this aim, we are serving the local youth (including our students and youth from the community) and other citizens by providing them two important sporting facilities of excellent quality.

Apart from these facilities, we encourage our students and faculty members to undertake research. In the last five years, our faculty members have completed 06 Major and 02 Minor research projects funded by the UGC. One of our faculty members is carrying out a small research project funded by a local industry unit. We encourage and send our students to undertake summer research projects at premier research institutes like IISER, Kolkata. As a result, some of our students are presently doing their PG and research in premier institutes. We also encourage our faculty members to take up post-doctoral research. Dr H S Chandak, Assistant Professor of Chemistry completed his post-doctoral research in 2016-17 as a UGC Raman Fellow at the Rutgers University, USA. Dr D M Nagrik, Assistant Professor of Chemistry in our college has been granted two patents.

Ours is the only institution in the region to have such a wide-ranging and vibrant research activity and such a variety of research facilities.


Best Practices

1.  Title of the Practice:

Empowering Women through Self-Employment to Self-dependence

Objectives of the Practice:

1.      To make our girls a competent part of the society.

2.      To develop creativity, art and environment-friendliness in them.

3.      To make the college youth self-dependent and self-confident.

4.      To train women from the local community to become self-dependent

The Context:

It is important to cultivate the values of self-dependence and self-confidence in young women and also make them financially independent. This should happen at an early age. Education does not guarantee employment at present and hence self-employment has become very important. There are glaring problems of divorcees, widows and other deprived women in the society. These problems create a pressing need for the women to be self-dependent through self-employment. With this aim, the Women’s Empowerment and Entrepreneurship Development Cell works in our college for the benefit of our female students and other women from the local community. The cell promotes creativity among the students and other women keeping in view, the growing demand for handicraft in the society.

The Practice:

Women’s Empowerment and Entrepreneurship Development Cell is working in the institution since 2002. It was formally recognized in 2005. A self-employment training center works under this cell. The cell organizes trainings for our girls as well as other women from the local community. The highlights of the work of this cell are as follows:

Ø  Linkage with NisargSanstha:

We have a linkage with Niasarga Sanstha run by Mrs Nitatai Bobdey who creates all sorts of artistic and useful things from the plant waste. She creates beautiful things like jewellery and   showpieces from seeds, twigs, fruits, stems and leaves. Through this linkage, we take the benefit of the expertise of our mentor Mrs. Bobdey to the students and women in the society through our trainings. These programmes are being conducted since 2002. Some of them are conducted in collaboration with other NGOs also.

Ø  Nature of the Training:

·         Art from Waste and Enterprise through Art:

We provide training to create artefacts from waste with minimum investment. There is a good demand for these things. Along with income, the trainees also harbor a love for Nature.

·         Attractive Bouquets from Plastic, Paper and other Wastes:

From 2016, we have been giving training to create bouquets from plastic/paper waste. These bouquets are used in various functions in the college and thus, the students get a chance to earn in the college itself.

·         Earning through Nutritious Cooking:

We train our girls and other women in the society to cook nutritious food items and sell them in the market. Thus, they get a chance to earn while nutritious food is served in the market. We also give training for creating the various things needed for festivals and special occasions.

Ø  Evidence of Success:

The details of various programmes we organized and the number of beneficiaries speak for our success. The events organized in the last five years can be listed as follows:

·         22.09.2018 Workshop on Self employment

·         07.01.2019 Entrepreneurship program on home decoration, Handicraft Items.

·         11.03.2019 Training Programme: Making Eco friendly colours.

·         06.01.2020 Workshop/ Training: Best from Waste

·        25.09.2020 International level online training and Exhibition on Best out of Waste (https://youtu.be/kXP7yCUNgcs)

·        05.01.2022 Training programme: Sculpture from waste https://youtu.be/-1-cIhuVoDM

·         During the session 2022-23 following efforts were taken for the cause:

ü  Courses on Tailoring and Fashion Designing and Beauty Parlor has been conducted by the department of Home economics and Women empowerment and Entrepreneurship Cell.

ü  Entrepreneurship Training of Decorative item for Hair style (03.03.23)

ü  Exhibition and sale of Clothes and artifacts (9.03.23)

ü           36 students were trained under Tailoring and fashion designing course of which 16 started own small scale business and a self-help group of 11 women established.

Beauty parlor course was successfully completed by 23 student and 5 students started providing freelancing services.

·         Apart from this, we regularly conduct such workshops in our annual NSS camp.

·         Over the last few years, our cell succeeded in making some of the girls’ students and women from local community to become self employable. We have felicitated them in the Entrepreneurship fair on our campus. They shared their journey to become self- employable during the fair. Some of the links are provided in additional information file.

Ø  Problems Encountered and Resources Required:

·         Efforts had to be taken to counter the male domination in the society which sometimes does not allow women to undertake self-development courses or programmes.

·         Counseling of students and other women had to be done to encourage them to join these programmes.

·         We had to orient our beneficiaries for being quality conscious so that they can face market competition.

·         As most of our projects were aimed at utilizing plastic and other waste, we had to mobilize very few resources. The expertise of Mrs Nitatai Bobdey was the main resource for us. It is always available to us.

·         To overcome the shortage of funds, we collaborated with NGOs like Inner wheel Club and Tilak Smarak Mahila Mandal.

2.  Title of the Practice:



Objective(s) of the Practice:

To provide financial assistance to the needy and promising students for meeting various expenses to continue their education by raising funds from the parent trust as well as faculty, staff, and other stakeholders.

The Context:

We noticed that there is a significant number of the needy students who get little or no financial assistance from the government for their education. Hence, we decided to setup a fund called Needy Students’ Aid Fund in our institution to provide financial assistance to such students.

We have also put in place several other schemes to fund and motivate the students in various ways. These include:

·         Annual Day Prizes

·         Late Babasaheb Bobdey Khel Ratna Scholarships

·         Financial Support for In-house Summer Research Programme

·         Financial Support for undertaking Summer Research at Premier Institutes.

·         Financial Support for Participation in Cultural Events






We made an appeal to our faculty and staff members to give voluntary financial contribution every year to the Needy Students’ Aid Fund to which, all of them responded positively. The College Employees’ Credit Cooperative Society donates Rs. 10,000/- every year from its surplus dividend. The management also contributes Rs. 10,000/ every year. Thus, the fund was setup in 2011 and a committee for inviting and scrutinizing applications from the needy students was setup. The committee selects the beneficiaries,

and they are given Rs. 1000/- each as financial assistance. This limit is sometimes waved depending on the case.

From 2011 to 2022-23, total 398 students have been given a financial assistance of Rs. 4,08,500/-There is significant rise in the number of beneficiaries under this scheme. A recent summary of this scheme is given below:


No of Beneficiaries




Rs 31,000/-



Rs 37,000/-



Rs 1,23,500/-


This has helped them meet the rising expenses of their education. Most of the students from among the beneficiaries of this scheme have progressed to jobs or higher education.



Various endowment prizes instituted by our parent trust and other stakeholders/well- wishers are given every year to meritorious students. In 2022-23, 62 students were awarded cash prizes amounting to Rs 47517/-



We started a special scholarship named after our former president to promote excellence in sports among students. This initiative was started in 2021. In the year 2022-23, 08 scholarships worth Rs 10,000/- each were provided to outstanding sportspersons.



No of Beneficiaries




Rs 80,000/-




All the students who undertook in-house summer research (86 students in all) were awarded scholarship of Rs 500 each. It is worth mention that Hon’ble Vice-President of

our trust Shri A P Jhunjhunwala sponsored this scholarship for Commerce students in the fond memory of freedom fighter Late Purshottamji Motilalji Jhunjhunwala. Scholarship of Rs 500 each to all the 24 student-participants from Commerce faculty was sponsored by him. Remaining 63 students were awarded institutional scholarship of Rs. 500 each.

A special financial assistance of Rs 4543/- each was awarded to Ms Anju Paliwal, Ms Rutuja Yadgire and Mr Akshay Ingle of MSc I (Chemistry) for successful completion of summer research at IISER Kolkata.

Total financial aid given under this scheme amounted to Rs 56629/- in 2022-23.




We regularly provide financial support to our students for participation in sports and cultural events. In 2022-23, we gave financial support worth Rs 637517 to our students for this purpose.

Evidence of Success:


·         Ms Anju Paliwal, Ms Rutuja Yadgire and Mr Akshay Ingle of MSc I (Chemistry) successfully completed summer research at IISER Kolkata. The In-house Summer Research programme has proved as an impetus for the students to undertake research at premier institutions. This is evident from the following page on our college website: https://gsck.ac.in/research.php#srepro

·         The number of beneficiaries of Students’ Welfare Fund has been rising every year which shows a wider coverage.

·         Participation in Sports and Cultural event has increased and the number of achievements by the students have also increased. This can be viewed at: https://gsck.ac.in/sports/achievements/


Problems Encountered and Resources Required:

·         It was a challenge to identify the needy students for which we setup a committee with the Chairman of our trust Dr S. S. Bobdey as its president.

·         Raising funds to help the students was a challenge which we met by appealing to our staff members and our co-operative society.

·         To develop a spirit of inquiry and innovation among the students and encourage them to undertake and complete research at a very young (viz. UG level) was a significant challenge and an even greater challenge was to motivate them to go to premier institutions for undertaking further research.
