encourages Students in various co-curricular activities. The M.D. University to which
this college is affiliated does not allow any division in marks between continuous
assessment and terminal examination.           The university conducts the terminal
examination both in theory papers and practice teaching thus sundering the exercise of
tests and assignments almost redundant. On the part of the college it sincerely strives
to make use of modern technology in transacting knowledge and skills to pupil teachers.

        Criterion - III Research, Development and Extension

  The College offering B.Ed. and M.Ed. programmes has made a humble attempt in
terms of research work. Accept three out of fourteen, all the members of the staff
possess Ph. D. degree. Three staff members have been awarded Ph.D. degree during
the last five years. There are ten part-time research scholars. Two research scholars

empowerment are undertaken from time to time under NSS Programme and women
cell. The institution works and plans extension activities in collaboration with NGOS.
   Though in the giving circumstances the research contribution of the staff is
commendable , there is a need to further strengthen the research elements. the teacher
can be encouraged to take up more research projects along with motivation for
publication in research journals which would add to the development of research ethos
in the institution.

         Criterion - IV Infrastructure and Learning Resources

   The institution has sufficient infrastructure facilities, enough funds, quick authority
sanctions and management investment to plan the need for augmenting the
infrastructure to keep pace with academic growth.              The task of maintaining
infrastructure is assigned to different committees with specific objectives and functions
clearly defined.      To keep the campus beautiful and pollution free a committee
"Operation Fountain Head" has been formed which regularly keeps a watch over its
   Two Well equipped hostels-one for girls and other for boys having 25 rooms in each
with warden' s residence are available on the campus.
   For uninterrupted water and electric supply one lakh liters capacity overhead tank
and two generators are.,provided five class rooms, Assembly halls, various laboratories,
Teacher's cubicles, Principals residence, one guest house etc. and other infrastructure
facilities are available.

developments. The College has augmented its Computer lab. Psychology, E.T., Sc.
Lab and other laboratories are used by the students during practice teaching phase as

books and verifying the stock readily. The college has a book bank facility has sufficient
books and subscribes a reasonable number of journals M. Ed. students are allowed
access to the stakes. There is a photocopying machine in the library for the benefit of
students. Though list of text-books useful for the B.Ed. students is displayed in the
beginning of the year but it would perhaps help the students more if the library provides
a catalogue also. This limitation is obviously because of shortage of staff and the
Government of Haryana does not give sanction of addition posts. Library has the same
working hours as the college which runs from 9:00 am to 4:00 pm.

          Criterion - V Students Support and Progression

  The student support and progression of any institution depends upon the strength of
system efficiency developed by the institution.
  Almost all students who bought admission to B.Ed. course during the last three years
appeared at the examination. The drop out for M.Ed. course is also less than 1 0% .
Three students have passed NET during the last three year.

recreational/leisure time facilities to students like indoor-outdoor sports/games, yoga
and audio/video facilities.

respectively. In addition to this an amount of Rs. 2000/- is given to each student who
secures merit position among the first ten. For willing students the institution arranges
preparatory classes of one month duration. It is heartening to note that it gives the grant

of Rs. 2000 /- each to the economically weak students from its own funds. Placement
cell has been established recently. Placement services and alumni association may be
strengthened for better linkage.

              Criterion-VI Organisation and Management

   For effective functioning to achieve the goals/objectives the institution has a system
and mechanism of organization and management. The governing body elected by the
members of_.the parishad looks after the management of the institution. Resources are

                             Overall Analysis and Suggestion

  The Rao LalSingh College of Education established in 1947 has developed both in
infrastructure facilities and academic programmes. The teacher development has been
continuing thus improving the quality of transaction. The management of the college is
quite proactive and has plans to initiate classes in different foreign languages including
improving proficiency in English students seem to be quite motivated and
participate,with interest in various curricular and co-curricular activities. College further
provides them an opportunity of infraction with sister institutions by organizing annual
athletic meet on Dec. 7 every year. Cent percent results and quite a few top positions
the last examination provide impetus to students academic activities with a desire to do
better this year. All the students appeared for B.Ed. examination (2002-03) have got
first division only. Out of fifteen positions, fourteen have been begged by this college.
The management is very supportive of the development of the college and provides
ample encouragement to staff and students.
  The peer team appreciates the efforts of the management, the principal and the staff
for the progress and development of the college.
  The efforts of the institution for,providing quality Teacher Education in rural area are
praiseworthy. The peer team would like to put forward the following suggestions for
          At" M.Ed. level Teacher Education, Educational "and Vocational Guidance
           Special Education, Educational Technology are offered as elective optional
           papers. There is a need to encourage students to opt for papers such as
           Computer      Education-,    Educational     Measurement       and    Evaluation
           Management and administration of Education which are already prescribed
           in M.Ed. syllabus of the university.
          Teaching of commerce is offered as one of the subject, there is no specific
           lecturer for teaching of commerce. The Vice-chancellor of the university has
           approved the post of lecturer in Education (Economics/Commerce) for a
           teacher who has master degree in Economics.            Efforts may be made ot
           appoint a teacher with Commerce background.

           Familiarity with the use of computers will be an asset for teachers. There is a
            need of computer-training programme for all the staff members
           On campus interviews may be organized for B. Ed pass students
           The institution is located in rural area and partly residential. A cooperative
            store managed by the students may be of great help and support to them.
           A good amount (about Rs. 30, 000 /- yearly) is spent on subscribing on
            Journals. The Journals like Perspective in Education, New Frontiers in
            Education etc. related to education and suitable for students may also be
            subscribed. The list of journals, which are subscribed, be reviewed.
           Separate reading room may be provided in the hostels.
           There is a need to encourage innovations in Teacher education. Instruction
            through integrating models of teaching may be considered.
           The alumni association constituted recently may be strengthened and

The peer team appreciates the cooperation extended by the management, the principal,
teaching and non-teaching staff and the students and wishes the college a bright future.
