SECTION II: CRITERIA WISE ANALYSIS
CRITERION I: CURRICULAR ASPECTS
St. Agnes College is a minority institution founded in 1921 mainly with the objective of providing education to catholic women. Subsequently it expanded its goal and mission to include all sections of women in the society especially, the economically and educationally disadvantaged downtrodden ones. Over the years, it has redefined its objectives by changing its emphasis from mere education to an education to empower women with skill, knowledge and awareness, so that they can be self-supporting responsible citizens of the country. The college pursues its goal by imparting education with a range of academic learning, and designing new courses suitable for developing skill and competence relevant to national needs. Moral and ethical values, research orientation, scholarship and erudition are envisaged to be essential components in the education to be imparted. The college has strived to achieve these objectives in its long life of more than eight decades.
The college imparts Under Graduate (UG) education in Arts, Science, Commerce and Business Management. Apart from the regular traditional subjects, it offers two interdisciplinary UG courses in Microbiology and Biotechnology, one UG course in Computer Science and vocational courses in Secretarial Practice, Office Management and Data Processing.
The college is affiliated to Mangalore University and therefore follows the syllabi and curricula prescribed by it. Since a number of teachers of the college are members of Boards of Studies of the University, they get some scope for contributing in framing and designing the curricula keeping in view the modern trends and global perspectives. The syllabi of all courses are regularly reviewed and redesigned by the university as per the national and regional needs.
In order to prepare the students to face the challenge of competitive world and secure employment, the college has introduced a number of diploma and certificate courses in emerging areas like Computer courses in MS Windows, MS Office, Web Designing, E-Commerce, Food and Nutrition, Fashion Designing, Basic Accountancy, Communication English, etc. The three diploma courses in Travel & Tourism, Translation Proficiency, and Personality Development are offered with UGC approval. In addition, the college offers 35 credit based supplementary courses called Honours courses to the students run by the Management. All these certificate courses are designed and developed by the faculties of the college with an underlying emphasis on the promotion of human values, social concerns, scientific and computer awareness, and creativity in the students. The college also offers several value-based interdisciplinary foundation courses for the students of all disciplines. Through the Women Study Centre set up with UGC assistance, the college offers training programmes to the women to secure self-employment.
The academic programmes with large number of courses provide the students with wider option for choice of their career. During the last five years the college has introduced an UG course in Biotechnology, and one PG diploma in Computer Applications. Most of the diploma and certificate courses are self-financed. Being an affiliated college it does not have much flexibility in curriculum designing. The academic flexibility is limited only to the choice of elective options for UG courses.
The college is aware of the fact that true evaluation of its academic programmes, can be properly done through feedback system. It has taken good measures in this regard. The scheme of teachers' self-appraisal is in operation. The reports of such feedback are duly sent to the Government for necessary action. It has also introduced the scheme of student's feedback about the teachers' performance, and other important issues like academic programmes and campus environment. The college has developed a mechanism to get feedback from other stakeholders on its general performance. The feed back of students are made available to the teachers to act upon. Regular reports from the college's Internal Quality Assurance Cell (IQAC) go a long way in helping the College in its efforts to sustain and enhance quality of education.
CRITERION II: TEACHING-LEARNING AND EVALUATION
The College follows the procedure laid down by Mangalore University for the admission of students to various courses. Being a minority institution, it supplements this procedure with provision for the admission of socially disadvantaged and handicapped students on humanitarian and compassionate grounds. A few seats are also reserved for students excelling in sports. The Admission Committee looks after the whole process of admission. Any student finding difficulty in choosing the appropriate subjects is counselled by it. At the entry level, the student's academic potential is assessed through tests and personal interviews. The selected candidates for admission have to attend two orientation programmes, one conducted by the Principal before the admission and another conducted by each department after the admission.
On the basis of test performance at the entry level, the students are divided into two groups: academically weaker and advanced learners. The weaker ones are given remedial courses and special coaching at the departmental level especially in the departments of English, Mathematics, Chemistry, Physics, Accountancy, etc. There are no formal enrichment courses offered by the college to the advanced learners. However they are encouraged to take part in seminars, certificate courses, minor research projects, talent search competitions, debates, quizzes, etc. They are also required to guide and help their academically less privileged class mates.
The college annually publishes the college calendar with detailed information on the academic and extension activities, rules and regulations of the examination, pattern of examinations and method of evaluation laid down by the Mangalore University.
It is nice to note that the college has attempted to keep in view the global trends in education and other areas, in planning and carrying out its teaching programme. To encourage self-study and to infuse confidence in the students, the college divides the topic of a course into two parts, one needing extensive explanation by the teacher and the other to be learnt by the student themselves with only supervision by the teacher.
The Central Library equipped with adequate number of books, journals, computer, internet, and Xerox facilities complemented by the departmental libraries fosters and motivates the students to develop the habit of self-study.
The computers in the computer centre and in the departments are extensively used by the students and staff to acquaint them with the use of modern technology in the teaching-learning process.
The classroom teaching is supplemented by the guest lectures delivered by experts on course related and extra curricular topics. The College makes extensive use of modern technology to improve the quality of teaching. Use of OHP, Computer, Internet, CD, LCD projector and VCD etc. is very much in evidence.
The College has 43 full time permanent teachers, 24 fulltime temporary and 12 part time teachers. The temporary and part-time teachers are appointed by the College Management. The number of teachers having Ph.D. degree is 09 out of 43 permanent teachers, which is rather low. The recruitment procedure for teachers is quite rigorous. The selected candidate is temporarily appointed and undergoes a two-year probation period marked by regular assessment of her/his performance by the Head of the Department and the Principal. After taking student feed back into account, if the teacher measures up to the high standard set up by the college, then her/his job is confirmed.
It is nice to note that the Principal of the college has been awarded the National Best Principal Award in the year 2003-2004. The Physical Education Director has also obtained the Best Physical Director Award by DCE, Bangalore in the same year .

The outstanding achievers among the staff are honoured by the Principal with token reward on the annual `Staff Day' to boost the excellence in the performance of the teachers.
The college follows the traditional annual system in all subjects except Business Management where semester system has been adopted as per the University guidelines. However, it has evolved its own system of carrying out various tests like monthly unit test, two term tests in a calendar year and a preparatory examination before the forthcoming university examination. In all these examinations the valued answer scripts are returned to the students for the assessment of their own strengths and weaknesses. Some departments offer awards to students to encourage better performance. The college honours rank holders in the university examination.
