Key Performance Indicators

At the course level, the achievement criteria or passing threshold is defined as achieving 50% or higher in the assessment. Therefore, a student who has passed every assessment, is considered to have passed and attained the COs and POs for that unit. The performance target is set at 70% of the student population attaining assessed POs for each course. At the programme level, the performance target for overall PO attainment (cohort average) is set at 70% for each PO.
