PREFACE
The educational scenario of the nation has been subjected to swift
changes. It may not be an exaggeration to state that every passing day heralds a
development, if not an upheaval. In every society, there have been attempts to
organize the body of existing knowledge, to perceive the natural and also
scientific phenomena not merely with awe and reverence, but with inductive and
deductive logic, reasoning and experimentation so as to understand various
occurrences in an enlightened manner. It has to be noted that technological
advancement has always been innovative and explorative. Some men of such
mettle who have assimilated the essence of educational philosophy established an
educational empire.

Pavai Varam Educational Trust was established in the year 1998 with the
basic principle of promoting purposeful, goal-oriented technical education for the
betterment of rural community and to provide excellence in the field of
Engineering and Technology. The Paavai Institutions constitute four Engineering
colleges namely Paavai Engineering College, Paavai College of Engineering,
Pavai College of Technology and Paavaai Group of Institutions in addition to
polytechnic colleges, Teacher Training Institute, College of Education, Arts and
Science College for women and Paavai Vidyasharam CBSE & Matric schools.
Currently these institutions offer several diploma courses, undergraduate
programmes in Engineering, Technology, Computer Applications, Business
Administration, Arts and Applied Sciences. The institution attracts outstanding
students by virtue of discipline, modern infrastructure, library, faculty and
cosmopolitan culture prevailing in the campus. The institutions are certified as e-
Governance campus.

5. Problems Encountered and Resources Required

Personality Development Programmes could be a very robust approach


for enhancing the students' technical and reasoning ability. It seems to be a way to
student's career by ensuring their job in reputed companies. Various training

Paavai Engineering College, Namakkal, TN NAAC SSR Criterion - VII 304


agencies are involved as a resource to give training to the students. The Placement
Cell is finding it difficult to find the time to carry out this type of activities due to
their academic commitment.

Best Practice II
1. Title: Continuous Internal Assessment Pattern
The internal assessment of students on theory and practical subjects is done
through a continuous assessment process throughout the course of study.

Internal Tests
Assignments
Innovative Practices
Class Seminars
Mini Projects
Attendance

2. Objective

To ensure that the students learn continuously throughout their course of


study rather than concenterating at the end of the semester.

3. The Context

The focus on the weightage for the internal assessment has made the
students to concentrate more on their studies continuously throughout the course
period.This helps the students to learn beyond their syllabus and also makes them
understand the technical aspects of the subjects in a better way.

4. The Practice

The students were given extra coaching, free of cost, in all the subjects in
general. The students were given extra guidance in the core subjects of
their respective specialization in particular. The college ensured that the

Paavai Engineering College, Namakkal, TN NAAC SSR Criterion - VII 305


students are provided with the question framed by the experienced
faculty of the college. The question banks have facilitated the students in
such a way that their efforts in the final exams have started bearing
fruits.Our college encourages hostel students to practice yoga and
meditation which help the students to gain concentration and to get
relieved from stress through strengthening the physical health and human
soul.

5. Evidence of success

The success of the revised pattern of assessment of internal marks is evident


from the following:
Increased commitment of students in learning.
Greater involvement in acquiring knowledge.
Greater interaction in the classes.
Improved academic result

6. Problems Encountered and Resources Required

The Institution believes this could be a very robust approach for enhancing
the students' technical and reasoning ability. Furthermore, modern pedagogical
best practices often require class time that was traditionally devoted for
transmitting facts and hence, the learning of content is shifted to students, outside
the class.

Personality Development Programmes seem to be a way to student's


career by ensuring their job in reputed companies. Various training agencies are
involved as a resource to give training to the students. The Placement and
Training Cell is finding it difficult to find the time to carry out this type of
activities due to their academic commitment. The only resource required is
manpower with acumen to evaluate and train the students correctly.
