Course Outcomes (COs) are statements describing significant and essential learning that learners have achieved, and can reliably demonstrate at the end of a course. POs and COs, designed by faculties considering graduate attributes, are stated and displayed on the website (link: https://www.gmdcollege.in/iqac). The evaluationof the students is carried out by considering various parameters like home assignments, class tests, oral test, seminars, group discussions, presentation, mid-semester internal examination and subjective assessments. The attainment levels are mapped for various courses and programmes using a well-defined procedure on the basis of performance in examinations.
