The college implemented a few best practices in the recent past years. Details of two best practices are mentioned below, followed by brief description of the other best practices. Best Practice-1 Title of the Practice: Comprehensive student Monitoring system Objectives of the Practice

Part D : Criteria - Wise inputs

Velagapudi Ramakrishna Siddhartha Engineering College

Page 259

The college has envisaged and has been implementing a student monitoring system which enables the institution to contribute to the overall development of the student. The following are the objectives of the system. To enable the administration not only to gauge the curricular processing from a generic perspective but also to possess a specific understanding of the entire academic processing even at a micro level. In order to encourage the members of faculty to be more precise in delivering the content. To identify the student regularity not only at the level of individual courses but also on a daily basis To develop a highly transparent and a rationally accountable system To enable the parents to have a Ready Reckoner kind of system in order that they would understand the academic interest being evinced by their wards. The Context Student Monitoring has been a regular phenomenon with any of the academic institutions. There are age-old practices in the process. It is an established fact that many of the methods enunciated and systems administered have not been able to steer the institutions towards a comprehensive mechanism. In the light of this, the institution has undertaken an intense analysis of the issue. It is understood that when a system that incorporates both academic processing and student attendance monitoring at one go only would stand as a really comprehensive one since it is realized that student attendance monitoring and academic processing shall not be considered watertight compartments. Considering the above, the college has developed such a system which accommodates a comprehensive strategy. The Practice As has been presented the mechanism is a multi-layered one 1 A Comprehensive check of Regularity and Punctuality Student attendance is recorded in every class. Student attendance is taken in the First Five Minutes of a given class. Rationale It presents the assiduity of a student in the sense that the process registers the extent to which the learner has been evincing interest in all the subjects. The procedure even though seems to be a trivial item, when executed, ensures conducive learning environment. The Time frame presented above relates not only to the regularity but also to the punctuality of the student.

Instant consolidation for ready reference

Part D : Criteria - Wise inputs

Instant consolidation of student attendance is done by the teacher as a part of process. Rationale Instant consolidation as opposed to the terminal consolidation gives a clear picture to the teacher regarding a student pertaining to the number of classes that he/she attended at any given point of time. 3 Recording academic information In addition to marking attendance, the teacher records the items of the syllabus covered in the Almanac presented at the end of the register. Rationale The institution believes in a monochromic pattern which is expected to manifest not just in the conduct of examinations but in the regular day-to-day academic transactions which contribute to the knowledge base of the students. Hence, the college insists on recording the coverage of syllabus at the end of the Attendance register of the students 4 Day-wise consolidated report of Attendance and Academics

In addition to the Attendance register which is a regular phenomenon of academic institutions, the college introduced STUDENT ACTIVITY REPORT in which every teacher has to record the Basic information after each of the classes. A Table is earmarked for each of the working days. The teacher has to record the Code no of the subject in the time slot in which the class is handled, present the registered numbers of the Absentees and the academic items covered. Rationale Attendance register maintained by the teacher presents the particulars of a students attendance for an individual subject. On the other hand, this Report presents a microcosmic representation about the student attendance related to any given day for each of sections/classes. All the individual registers need not be checked when overall information is required regarding any student pertaining to regularity. Moreover, it would stand as a counter check for the coverage of syllabus by the teacher. Digitizing the Attendance Data Each of the teachers is expected to post the monthly attendance of the sections he/she handles on the last working day of the month into the Webbased monitoring portal. A teacher can access with his /her own secure password, enter the data, check and submit. When it is submitted, the teacher ceases the right to modify on ones own. If at all any modification needs to be done for a valid reason, he/she has to submit the request in writing. Such 5

Velagapudi Ramakrishna Siddhartha Engineering College

Page 261

modifications can be done by the Head of the Department with the prior permission of the Principal. Rationale The digitization not only gives permanence to the data but also offers swift access to all those that are a part of the system. On the other hand, because of the secure system the details become tamper free. Hundreds of man hours have been saved for typing the data since the decentralized entry makes the process easier. 6 Student Counselors In spite of growing numbers in intake, the college has not watered down the process of individual monitoring in the fact that 20 students are allocated to a teacher who acts as the teacher counselor. The teacher counselors serve the purpose of mentoring with a comprehensive orientation taking various aspects into reckoning. Rationale The system offers a chance to the individual academic momentum over and above the group momentum created by the macro level strategies administered by the college to encourage students towards overall academic and co-academic development. In addition, the basic soft skills will be increased in the process as the teachers closely observe and monitor the students, and the process offers a platform to instill ethical, social and spiritual values in the students since the interaction would take place in a syllabus-free and unstructured environment without prejudice to the expected teachertaught relationship. 7 Proctor diary:

Part D : Criteria - Wise inputs

The college has developed a system which accommodates close monitoring not only of student attendance but also of the academic performance in the formative assessment. A Diary is maintained for each of the students by the teacher counselor. The said document records monthly subject-wise student attendance and marks obtained by the student in internal assessment. The teacher takes up counseling based on both the items. The said diary gets transferred to the higher class when student gets promoted to the next class. Rationale The said diary stands not only as the micro level data of the academic and social behavior of the student but also as the perpetual student data sheet. Information can be elicited regarding any student at any point during his or her academic career not only pertaining to the current semester but also in the previous semesters.

Regular information to the Parents

Part D : Criteria - Wise inputs

The college has been leaving no stone unturned in apprising the parents of the students about the regularity and academic performance of their wards. Several strategies have been employed in the process. The counselors contact the parents over mobile phones and letters are sent through registered post to the addresses on record regarding students who happen to have considerably low attendance and internal marks explaining the consequences leading to the detention as per the academic regulations of the college. Rationale Even though it is the responsibility of the parents to get in regular touch with the college to know about the regularity and academic performance of their wards, the colleges feels it not only an academic responsibility but also a social responsibility since some of the parents happen to be little or uneducated who may not possess academic orientation and to put the prospective technocrats trained at the college on the right track with the help of the parents. 9 Diagnostic tests Conduct of diagnostic tests in certain subjects which have tremendous influence on the future of the students has been a regular feature in the institution. Remedial classes are conducted based on the performance of the students Rationale The regular Formative assessment shows the current academic position of a student and Summative assessment represents the academic knowledge one achieves. In other words, the Entry academic Behavior and Exit academic Behavior are tested thorough the regular curricular examinations. But in this world of Outcomes Based Education, the level at which a student is expected to perform shall also be made clear through crystallized strategies. It is being done through the Diagnostic test. In addition, such tests have been depicting the clear distinction between Competence and Performance of the students. 10 On-line Publication of Attendance and Results: As has been presented, the college has a very transparent system in making the information available to the students and their parents. As a part of the system, digitized particulars of attendance and academic results are published on the College website which can be accessed from anywhere. This is done in addition to placing the hard copies of attendance and result statements in the college notice boards. Rationale This enables the parents to know about the regularity and academic performance of their wards from anywhere. Students also will be wary of

Velagapudi Ramakrishna Siddhartha Engineering College

Page 263

their behavior, academic and otherwise, since their performance would be known without exception. Evidence of success: The said Comprehensive Student Monitoring system contributed to the following The number of prizes in national level competitions has increased since students have been able to plan their academic schedule properly and have been improving understanding beyond their syllabus Students attendance has increased considerably The performance in campus placements has also improved The soft skills of the students have been observed to be on rising note. Problems Encountered and Resources Required No problems were encountered in the implementation of this practice. Notes -------

Best Practice 2 Title of the Practice Conforming to expected quality norms through ISO. Objectives of the Practice The main objective of this practice is to improve the academic standards and to provide all the academic facilities to the students based on todays need of the industry/field into which the students enter after they complete the course.

The Context The institute thrives to achieve the standards in both academic and administrative aspects in order to see that students may leave the campus with excellence in all constructive dimensions after completion of their course. It is well known that quality assurance through ISO is a best practice in industries and organizations. It is expected that this mechanism of quality assurance may be useful in checking and maintaining quality in the educational systems also. Hence, this practice is implemented in the Institute. The Practice The practice involves several faculty members who work for the attainment of ISO certification. All these members are headed by Management Representative (MR) who monitors all the processes in the campus. An external agency is invited every year to assess the quality of the processes implemented in the campus. After thorough verification and Velagapudi Ramakrishna Siddhartha Engineering College Page 264

discussions and confirming the quality maintenance, the agency extends the certification period. Apart from the external audit, the MR conducts internal audits twice a year. In this process, a few experienced faculty members act as internal auditors and are sent to different departments for audit. The regular documentation at department level is taken care of by one or two faculty members called QMS Department level Coordinators. Evidence of Success After implementing this practice, the institute developed in several aspects towards academic and administrative excellence. The certification by external agency proved that the institute is performing in a better way on par with the universities and other institutes which attained same level of certification. Problems Encountered and Resources Required No problems were encountered in the implementation of this practice. The institute is continuously thriving by monitoring and bringing out any noncompliance to ISO practices.
