Assessment and evaluation at Srishti is continuous, formative and for its summative evaluation uses the Harvard Graduate School of Education’s “Performance of Understanding” as the basis for constructing assessment modes and opportunities.


All evaluations are based on continuous assessment. Bachelors and Masters programs both follow the same two- semester schedule.

Weightages for Assessment in each Learning Unit

All learning units are divided into three discrete assessment components identified as A1, A2, and A3, each of which as a given weightage, which reflects the percentage of the curricular objectives met in that component.


  • All courses are organized as modules, with each module having a set of learning units.
  • Each learning unit will be assessed on criteria published with the abstract.
  • Assessment is cumulative and continuous, with weightage given to each both participation, attendance) and engagement (contribution, assignments).
  • All evaluation will be a triangulation of three frameworks- capabilities, studio habits and dimensions of practice.
  • Course facilitators will use non-numeric and progressive descriptors to assess and provide feedback to the students. Conversion from non-numeric to numeric grades will be generated by a computing algorithm and will reflected on their academic transcripts
  • Each semester will have a summative assessment in the form of paper and pencil tests, authentic assessment tasks, design charettes and /or written assignments. This will be at the course and not unit level and will have a prescribed weightage in the overall assessment for the year.
  • Students will be given a week to clarify their grades and discuss it with course facilitators, leaders or the Deans.
