Self Appraisal Committee

A committee was constituted for the identification of faculty eligibility for appraisals.

Roles and Responsibilities of the committee:

The criterion followed for the evaluation are based on the Quantitative and qualitative assessements.

Part I  Qualitative assessment comprises of:

  • Academic Results – 40%

Subject wise results, feed back from students

  • Administrative activities – 20%

Faculty involved as Class Co-ordinators, Mentors, In-charges in various committees

  • Contribution to the Institution – 10%

Faculty bringing laurels to the institution, through awards, conducting and attending seminars, skilled workshops/FDPs. Encouraging students to participate in various national and international level activities like quiz, conference, training programmes, NPTEL courses etc.

  • Research – 25%

Publications in peer reviewed/SCI/SCIE journals; Books/book chapters published, patents applied and granted. Projects applied/granted

  • Extracurricular activities– 5%

Sports, NSS activities

                                  Fig. 1 Flowchart for the qualitative assessment

Faculty were given grades like A, B, C according to the assessment. Those who are scoring grade A were given appraisals and those with B grade were given less appraisal and those with C grade were given given the least.

Case study : List of faculty scoring A grade with best appraisals and faculty scoring C grade with least appraisals

  • Faculty with A grade  – 7

  • Faculty with B grade  -  9

  • Faculty with C grade  - 3

Impact analysis: 

  • Faculty those who obtained A grade have showed overall improvement with respect to classes, paper publications and project writing and contributions to the institution. They also obtained their Ph.D degrees during their service in the institution.

  • Faculty those who obtained B grade have good feedback but were lacking in contributions to the institutions. They were counseled with expert committee to fulfil the lacunae.

After their attainment in the next academic year they were given incentives and appraisals according to the institution norms 

  • Faculty those who obtained C grade did not focus on the research contributions. Their contribution to the institution was also minimal. Hence they were counselled with experts for further improvement.If they show improvement in research along with academics, they were promoted further and also given appraisals according to the gradings.


Part 2 Quantitative Assessments:

PERFORMANCE BASED INCENTIVES (PBI) POLICY 

PerformanceBasedIncentives (PBI) are incentives that are disbursed based on the actual performance of the employees in an academic year. A PBI system helps to tie compensation directly to specific institutional goals and management objectives. PBIdelivers competitive pay for competitivelevels of performance and also encourages employees to constantly develop new skills.

The objective of the Policy:

Annual increment is not an automatic claim for any employee. Sanction of the same is always preceded by the appraisal of an employee at various levels. At the same time, a proper recruitment process, a professional method of inducting new faculty members in the organization and a proper careerpolicy are also incentives for the employees. However, it is felt that there is also a need to consider incentives for specific individual performances, which should be done with a systematic regularity so that the employee feels motivated by the recognition of his/her contribution and maintains goodmorale. Results of incremental policies are in the distant future. Incentives are immediate rewards. However, capturing the spirit of incentive scheme requires a fast track mechanism to identify the performance and propose the incentives.


The evaluation procedure is given below:


  1. Performance appraisal for “Academic Performance Score (APS)” Max. Score for   

“Academic Performance is four marks.

  • This criterion mainly focuses on the academic performance of an employee which covers the semester results and student feedback in an academic year.

  • The Max. Score shall be awarded is 4 including 3 Marks for academic results and 1* Mark for student feedback.

  • The computation of overall APS is based on the average of the following two parameters,

  • It considers Individual Subject Result Analysis within the class/section when compared to other subjects of the same class.

  • It also considers the performance of individual subject result when compared to the result of the same subject in all sections of all the branches.


  1. The SECOND criterion of PBI is an Academic Research & Development and its main features are as given below:

  • This criterion mainly considers the faculty output in Research and development in an academic year

  • Here R&D includes Research article produced in the National and International Journals, Articles presented in the national and International Conferences, Conferences/Workshops/Symposium organized and participated.

  • It also considers the quality of research and ARDS score computed based on Global R&D quality indexes like Citation, impact factor and Hindexetc.

  • Based on cadre ratio, the expected output of R&D(Published Research Papers) shall be categorized amongst employees like,Professor:: Associate Professor:: Asst. Professor = 3:2:1

  1. The third criterion comprises of the contributions to the institutionin terms of awards, conferences conducted and the regularity of the faculty.

Faculty having more LOPs were also identified and counseled regularly to identify their problems and improve the percentage of working days.
