Consideration of utmost significance of the curriculum requires its evaluation process for measuring its effectiveness in facilitating teaching/learning objectives.

The evaluation was carried out through a checklist specifically designed to meet the situation to find out whether the curriculum and related course books are based on curriculum objectives.
