Classroom Sessions

Such discussions form an integral part of the learning process, which help the participants to develop assertiveness and sensitivity to others’ viewpoints.

The faculty mentors are assigned to a group of 7-8 students. The students interact with the faculty formally once a week to discuss their career aspirations, choice of specialisations subjects/ courses, and are trained on various areas like group discussion, SWOT analysis, personal interview etc.

Online Learning System

ASM strongly believes that incorporation of technology increases the efficiency of the teaching-learning process. The institute has its own online learning system, i.e. Moodle. The students are required to register for access to the class notes, hand-outs, attendance, etc. Part of student assessment is also done online.


Student Assessment

The academic progress of students is reviewed regularly to ensure the accomplishment of programme learning objectives. In case the performance of any student is not found satisfactory, the management and faculty of ASM provides necessary counselling and guidance to the student.

Adhering to its culture of Continuous Assessment, the students are evaluated not only during the middle and end of a trimester but also during the entire session. Methods like case discussions, projects, class presentations, quizzes, assignments, simulation, online tests, etc. are used to evaluate a student. However, the purpose of using the mode of assessment may vary depending upon the learning outcomes that are being assessed. For instance: presentation skills of a student may be assessed by the content and delivery of a power point presentation; decision making skills may be assessed during case discussions, projects, etc.
