Collegiate and University education is full of reading text books and reference books prescribed, after availing the tuition courses on every subject, from the teaching faculty. Worldwide the system followed in educational institutions is not to award marks and grades, by mere passage of time that is after a year the student is not promoted to the next year's studies, automatically. Only after ascertaining the grasping skill of the student, evaluating their knowledge in the subject studied, and understanding capability to fully express in words what the subject is all about, a student is awarded marks.
This is done by the practice of allocating coursework assignments in each semester, for writing and evaluating the papers like essays, thesis, dissertation and term papers and asking students to submit the same within a prescribed time limit. The process of evaluation of the progress made in studies by the student commences only thereafter.
