Students Grades

Evaluating Student Performance

Attendance:

Regular attendance in all classes is required and attendance is mandatory. Students are expected to arrive on time and remain in class for the entire period scheduled. The responsibility for work missed due to any type of absence rests with the student.

Students are expected to attend every class session (lectures, tutorials, labs, etc.). Each instructor will maintain current records and will, upon request, furnish an accurate report of any student’s attendance pattern to the Registration Office. Attendance is checked from the first class meeting therefore, late registrants will have some absences when they first meet a class.

Absence

When students are absent, for any reason, they are still responsible for the content of the missed lecture and for any assignments. If the absence causes the student to miss a major examination: that examination may be made up if the instructor is convinced that the absence was justified. A student’s attendance record is a legitimate part of the criteria, which the instructor may use in assigning a grade for the courses. It is the responsibility of students to be aware of the attendance policies for their classes.

Withdrawals

After the student has missed over 15% of class, the student will be asked to withdraw from the course and a grade of “W” will be entered. In case of illness or other forcing circumstances, absence may reach 20% without forcing withdrawal.

Students withdrawing from study during a semester must fill out a withdrawal permit have it properly executed by the Registrar in order to leave a clear record. A student completing this process before the beginning of the final examination period will have a “W” record on the permanent record. A student who withdraws without following this required procedure will be awarded an “F”. Students cannot officially withdraw from study after the last day of classes prior to final examinations or while under disciplinary investigation.

 

Assessment and Grading System

Assessment

The College of Engineering and Technology adopts a continuous assessment system.  The total marks of the assessment of a typical course are 100 which are distributed along the semester as follows:

·         30% of the grade is declared after the 7th week of class.

·         20% of the grade is declared after the 12th week of class.

·         40% of the grade is allocated to the final exam and is declared after the 16th week of class.

·         10% of the grade is awarded based on the student attendance, participation and assignments submission.

 

 

 

Grading system

·         Course Grade

The letters A, B, C, D, F, I, and W are used as follows:

 

  

Grade Point Average (GPA):

                AASTMT uses a standard 4-point grading scale, and its equivalent letter grading system, as the framework for student evaluation. From the 4-point scores, cumulative and major grade point averages are determined. General grade is set according to the cumulative grade point averages as listed below

 

General grade and its respective GPA and percentage.

General Grade

GPA

Average Marks

Satisfactory

2.0-GPA-2.4

50% - less to 60%

Good

2.4-GPA-2.8

60% - less to 70%

Very Good

2.8-GPA- 3.4

70% - less to 85%

Excellent

GPA-3.4

85% and above

 

CET policies for those cases where a student’s cumulative GPA falls below 2.0 are outlined in the academic advisory section in Criterion 4. .

A student’s grade point average (GPA) is computed by dividing the total number of grade points accumulated by the total number of semester hours attempted.

Students are placed on academic probation if their accumulative GPA is less than 2.00 at the end of any semester on the credits hours attempted at the Academy.

Students can check their grades through the website using their assigned registration number and pin code.
