  • iv. D : Below 50 per cent

Those teacher participants who get Grade D are required to repeat the programme after a gap of one year without financial commitment to the UGC-HRDC. The total marks are to be fixed at 100 and the same is distributed in the following manner:

  • I. Multiple-choice objective tests 30
  • II. Seminars/participant presentation 15
  • III. Project/survey/others 20
  • IV. Micro-teaching/participation 10
  • V. Holistic response 25 (punctuality, regularity, initiative, conduct, responsiveness, etc.)

The above distribution may be adjusted to meet specific requirements. The certificate issued to the teacher participant will only be valid if supported by the Grade based on the evaluation made during the programme.
