Methodology: 48

49 To identify the possible hindering factors, the university authorities carefully designed an instrument to collect the information from the students on different aspects and their functioning in the university. This included five domains of information i.e. about the Course, Faculty, Assessments, Facilities available and Future involvement of students with the university. The responses were collected on a five point scale as poor, average, good, very good and excellent. Students were at liberty to mark their responses, and the data collected was analyzed by an independent evaluator and the identity of the students were not revealed. This kind of unbiased information was collected from different courses of the university (medical, dental, paramedical, and allied health sciences). The data collected were entered in Microsoft excel format and then analyzed by SPSS software for detailed information. First, the percent responses to each of the five point scale was calculated for all the courses and tabulated. Then five point scale was further reduced to three point grades as high, medium and low for easy understanding of the responses given by the students without losing any details or information (poor and average were graded as low, good as medium and very good and excellent as high); this was converted into a line graphs presentation of each domain with a mean line to check how each response and the respective domain were progressing across the selected courses. The details are placed confidentially in the archives of the Dean s office.
