Evaluation Criteria and Course Requirements
At Vidushi Academy, focus is on learning by doing and implementing. Each language course will include all or most of the following elements in the testing and grading of a candidate’s performance in a course.
1.    Project Work or Term Papers / Assignments    (100% weightage)
2.    One Mid Term Test    (30% weightage)
3.    One Final Examination    (70% weightage)

The Mid Term and Final Examinations typically comprise the following components:-

1.    Written Expression
2.    Grammar Written Test
3.    Reading Comprehension Test
4.    Oral Expression or speaking & listening test
Grading
The Academy follows a system of grades for evaluating students’ performance during the course as well as in the final examinations conducted by the Academy. In contrast to the 10 point decimal grading system (01.0 to 9.0), which the academy used in the past, a new grading system is effective at the academy from September 2005. Given below is a table with the different grades and their interpretation.
