Rubrics for Evaluation

CLOs Criteria Poor (0 to 4) Satisfactory (5-6) Good (7-8) Excellent (9-10)
CLO-1 Apparatus Handling, Experiment Performance and Calculations No knowledge of apparatus, experiment not performed, nor any calculations done Knows basic operation of the apparatus, performed the experiment with major errors in calculations Can handle the apparatus well, experiment completely performed, and calculations have few mistakes Fully understands the complete operation of the apparatus, experiment performed, and all calculations are correct
Planning and Execution of an Experiment [OEL] Experiment not planned for proper execution Experiment planned but not executed properly Experiment planned and executed but slight omissions Experiment correctly planned and executed
CLO-2 Communication [Report] Report neither covers technical details of experiment nor according to format Correct report submitted according to format but not covering essential technical details Report well written technically but format not completely followed / slight mistakes Well-composed flawless report covering technical aspects of experiment
Communication [Viva] Either does not understand or cannot communicate concepts related to experiment Understands the concepts related to experiment but does not communicate in technical terms Understands and able to communicate the learned concepts but with slight mistakes Fully understands all the concepts and can express them technically
CLO-3 Punctuality, Teamwork and Safety Arrives too late for experiment with disregard to teamwork or safety Arrives little late for experiment, somewhat adheres to teamwork and safety Punctual but slightly lacking in teamwork and safety consciousness Punctual, works as a team and adheres to safety instructions
