ABSTRACT:
Aim: A cross-sectional design (analytic) was adopted for the study and the aim of this study was to discover whether the curriculum is fulfilling its purpose and whether students are actually learning. Background: According to the history of education, the term ‘curriculum’ was originally related to the concept of a course of studies followed by a pupil in a teaching institution. Curriculum is a set of specific knowledge, skills and activities for students and it may be defined as planned activities to foster teachers' teaching and student's learning1. The term curriculum refers to the lessons and academic content taught in a school or in a specific course or program. Curriculum evaluation is an essential phase of curriculum development. Through evaluation a faculty discovers whether a curriculum is fulfilling its purpose and whether students are actually learning. Curriculum evaluation is crucial to measuring curriculum effectiveness in any educational setting2. Methods: A cross-sectional design (analytic) was adopted for the study. Eighty two graduates were selected by total enumerative sampling technique. Results: The data was analyzed using descriptive statistics. The various categories of the curriculum evaluation tool were summarized using frequency and percentage, separately for B.Sc and PB.BSc graduates. Conclusion: Out of six areas evaluated, 100% satisfaction was ensured in all areas except in assessment of organization of teacher’s materials, which concluded that 20% of graduates asked for improvement in special facilities and equipments for the curriculum updation.
