  20. 20. Academic EvaluationEvaluationAll courses are conducted and evaluated in a continuous & internal manner by the faculty who teach these courses. Thestudent registers for a certain number of courses each semester; the year being divided into two semesters, and asummer term, whenever offered. A faculty member, as registration advisor, helps a student to draw up his programme,suitable to his pace and needs, which is made possible by the course-wise time-table of the Institute. It is the responsibilityof the student to attend classes regularly and to maintain the required level of scholastic standing (Please refer to theAttendance Charter).Assessment:The performance of a student in each course is assessed by the teacher by means of continuous evaluation throughoutthe semester in class work, periodical quizzes, tests (sometimes unannounced), tutorials, home work, projects, etc. and acomprehensive examination at the end of the semester. The student is thereby given a large number of opportunities toprove himself and be evaluated. The system encourages and rewards continuous and systematic study. It providesconstant feedback to the student as to where he stands, thus enabling him to cultivate regular habits of studying /learning and preparing himself for the future.Unusual methods of evaluation have been evolved in the Practice School courses to take account of certain traits which donot surface in classroom education, like professional judgement, decision-making ability, interdisciplinary approach,initiative, leadership, sense of responsibility, etc.GradingThe system discards the conventional emphasis on a single final examination and numerical marks as the only absoluteindication of the quality of a students performance. Thus, at the end of the semester the teacher of the course awardsletter grades A, B, C, F to the student based on the total performance of the student and it is relative to the performance ofothers taking the same course. These letter grades stand for quality performance : A-Excellent, B-Good, C-Fair and F-Fail.Further, these letter grades have points associated with them in a quantified hierarchy. There are also courses in whichthe teacher awards non-letter grades which have only a qualitative hierarchy. The teacher may also pronounce theperformance of a student in a course in terms of certain reports which should not be misconstrued as grades.The Institute, being fully residential with an internal and continuous evaluation system, expects every student to beresponsible for regular attendance in classrooms, to appear in scheduled tests and examinations and to fulfil all othertasks assigned to him in every course. The system has adequate resilience to accommodate unforeseen situationsthrough withdrawal from a course, mock-up tests, feedback from examinations and interaction with teachers. When, inspite of all these facilities, a student fails to co-operate with the teacher in the discharge of his part of the contract to suchan extent that the teacher is unable to award any grade, the teacher is authorized to give a “F” (FAIL) report.A student is deemed to have cleared a course if he obtains a grade in the course. However the educational philosophy ofthe Institute interlinks and at the same time distinguishes between the performance of a student in a single course and hisoverall cumulative performance. The overall performance of a student is indicated by an index known as the “CumulativeGrade Point Average” (CGPA). It is the weighted average of the grade points of all the letter grades received by thestudent since his entry into the Institute and is expressed on a 10-point scale.During the students stay in the Institute, the Institute expects him to show certain minimum performance and progress.The minimum academic requirement is regarding the performance and progress for the Integrated programme is :? of at least 4.5 at the end of every semester.A CGPA? than one C grade in a semester is allowed for integrated programmes.Not moreStudents who fail to meet the minimum academic requirements stipulated above are put under an appropriatecommittee which monitors their programmes and gives guidance so that they are properly rehabilitated at the earliest.This is done by Academic Counseling Board (ACB) which is appointed by the Senate and is given authority to takeappropriate action including discontinuance of the student. 18

  22. 22. Academic ConductWe take all academic misconduct extremely seriously and investigate all alleged offences of cheating in assessed workand examinations. Students suspected of misconduct are dealt with accordingly through the Academys StudentDiscipline Procedures. Academic misconduct during examinations includes:Unauthorized Material : The act of bringing unauthorized material (written, printed or in any other format) into theexamination room; communicating with, receiving assistance from, copying from or providing assistance to anothercandidate during an examination; removing examination books or worksheets from the examination room. If theInstitute finds a student to be in breach of discipline by having cheated in assessed work and/or examinations, it has thediscretion to apply a range of penalties, ranging from nullification of module results up to suspension or expulsion fromthe Institute. The standard penalty applied is to make null and void all assessments undertaken during the relevantsemester. We understand that students may not be fully aware of the issues surrounding academic misconduct. It istherefore important that students inform themselves of these issues and seek the advice of staff faculty support service assoon as any problems arise. The consequences of misconduct in examinations and all other forms of assessment aresevere and may result in all assessments undertaken at the relevant subject being made null and void.Copying : Copying the work of others, including that of other students in the class or group, is an indication of unfairmeans whereby one person gains credit for the work undertaken by another. Where an element of reproduction is adesirable element of an assessment, as might be the case in a group project or presentation, the instructions for theassessed work will specify the extent to which such reproduction is permissible. The extent of legitimate reproductionmust be acknowledged by a student within their work. Students are advised to check the rest of their work to ensure that itis their own. Working with other students in informal study groups is a desirable part of the academic experience butstudents must ensure that the work that is finally submitted is theirs and not that of anyone else. Students should keepcopies of material such as working notes, or sketches of diagrams or drafts of essays that show that the work and itssource has been acknowledged and identified.Plagiarism : As the consequences of misconduct in examinations and all other forms of assessment are severe, theStudent Guide to Plagiarism can be found at the end of Part B, prior to the Appendices.Note on Detection of Plagiarism : College may require student work to be submitted for checking using plagiarismdetection software. This is intended to assist students in identifying possible plagiarism in course work submitted forassessment which could otherwise result in disciplinary action against students.Collusion : Collusion involves an agreement to deceive. This means that more than one person is involved in thedeception. An accusation of collusion may be added to an accusation of copying if there is clear evidence of theinvolvement of each party. Students should be extremely careful about lending their completed work to otherpersons. Students may think that they are helping others to meet a deadline in lending their work to others but itmay result in problems if other students copy a students work without informing them. What starts out as a supportiveaction may carry the risk of an accusation of collusion.Examination Rules and Regulations : Passing in all the examinations is a must.

  30. 30. All that we are is the result of what we have thought. The mind is everything. What we think we become. -Buddha28
  31. 31. VipassanaThe TechniqueVipassana, which means to see things as they really are, is one of Indias most ancient techniques of meditation. It wasrediscovered by Gotama Buddha more than 2500 years ago and was taught by him as a universal remedy for universalills.This non-sectarian technique aims for the total eradication of mental impurities and the resultant highest happiness offull liberation. Healing, not merely the curing of diseases, but the essential healing of human suffering, is its purpose.Vipassana is a way of self-transformation through self-observation. It focuses on the deep interconnection betweenmind and body, which can be experienced directly by disciplined attention to the physical sensations that form the lifeof the body, and that continuously interconnect and condition the life of the mind. It is this observation-based, self-exploratory journey to the common root of mind and body that dissolves mental impurity, resulting in a balanced mindfull of love and compassion.The scientific laws that operate ones thoughts, feelings, judgements and sensations become clear. Through directexperience, the nature of how one grows or regresses, how one produces suffering or frees oneself from suffering isunderstood. Life becomes characterized by increased awareness, non-delusion, self-control and peace.The TraditionSince the time of Buddha, Vipassana has been handed down, to the present day, by an unbroken chain of teachers.Although Indian by descent, the current teacher in this chain, Mr. S.N. Goenka, was born and raised in Burma(Myanmar). While living there he had the good fortune to learn Vipassana from his teacher, Sayagyi U Ba Khin who wasat the time a high Government official. After receiving training from his teacher for fourteen years, Mr. Goenka settledin India and began teaching Vipassana in 1969. Since then he has taught tens of thousands of people of all races andall religions in both the East and West. In 1982 he began to appoint assistant teachers to help him meet the growingdemand for Vipassana courses.The CoursesThe technique is taught at ten-day residential courses during which participants follow a prescribed Code of Discipline,learn the basics of the method, and practice sufficiently to experience its beneficial results.The course requires hard, serious work. There are three steps to the training.The first step is, for the period of the course, to abstain from killing, stealing, sexual activity, speaking falsely, andintoxicants. This simple code of moral conduct serves to calm the mind, which otherwise would be too agitated toperform the task of self-observation. The next step is to develop some mastery over the mind by learning to fix onesattention on the natural reality of the ever changing flow of breath as it enters and leaves the nostrils. By the fourth daythe mind is calmer and more focused, better able to undertake the practice of Vipassana itself: observing sensationsthroughout the body, understanding their nature, and developing equanimity by learning not to react to them.Finally, on the last full day participants learn the meditation of loving kindness or goodwill towards all, in which thepurity developed during the course is shared with all beings.The results come gradually through continued practice. It is unrealistic to expect all problems to be solved in ten days.Within that time, however, the essentials of Vipassana can be learned so that it can be applied in daily life. The morethe technique is practiced, the greater the freedom from misery, and the closer the approach to the ultimate goal of fullliberation. Even ten days can provide results which are vivid and obviously beneficial in everyday life. The entirepractice is actually a mental training. Just as we use physical exercises to improve our bodily health, Vipassana can beused to develop a healthy mind. Because it has been found to be genuinely helpful, great emphasis is put on preservingthe technique in its original, authentic form.The course is compulsory for all the students studying at FMS- Pune without any exceptions whatsoever.Students with psychological disorders and those who feel can not be a part of team should refrain takingadmission in our college.All those who try it will find Vipassana to be an invaluable tool with which to achieve and share real happiness withothers. 29
