Monograph on Semester System for Universities.
Natarajan, V.
The "semester system" in Indian universities was examined in terms of why the system traditionally has not been working and what recommendations could be made to improve it. Part of the ineffectiveness was due to the fact that the design was "ad hoc" and arbitrary, hurriedly imposed upon inadequately prepared or informed teachers, students, and administrators. A new design was drawn up through the use of questionnaires distributed to teachers from various universities in different disciplines, and teacher recommendations were used to plan a revised semester system. It was assumed that if teachers felt they had a part in the design, they would be more likely to implement it, since semester system design has an effect on the syllabus, teaching, learning, and evaluation. Suggestions are given for implementation and evaluation procedures, and the possible alternatives. (PJM)
