Program outcomes (PO) are defined for each education program. The purpose of designing the outcomes will help the technical teaching
organization to set their goals to meet out the vision and mission of the department followed by that of the organization. Rubrics are set of protocols written in a standard format. In a Rubric detailed information is collected for every course during the session, this data can be combined for each semester to achieve the set targets that is program outcomes. According to the NBA (National Board of Accreditation) Tier II, institutes have to predefine the program education objectives (PEOs) and POs for every course in each session. To meet the POs each course has set course objectives and course outcomes (COs). Attainment of CO will exhibit the progression level of program outcomes. More the attainment of COs more be the validation of POs as they are interfold. Performance of each individual in the class will be the rubric data for each PO. In this paper, certain attainment parameters have been prepared to analyze the performance of each student, which further helps to provide scale for PO achievement.
