Introduction

Department of Curriculum and Evaluation (DCE) has a unique identity in the Central Department of Education (CDE). The importance of DCE lies in the very existence of FOE itself as curriculum, in its broadest sense, comprises the live situation of the teaching-learning process. Thus, curriculum signifies the meanings of education in the context of the world of action rather than limiting its activities on planning endeavours since this idea is supported by a root of the word curriculum, that is, ‘currere’ meaning running of the race.

In larger perspectives, the relevance of DCE has been linked to the need for curriculum development and its implementation and evaluation for the betterment of formal education as well as non-formal education system. DCE is always guided by the educational needs of our country.

DCE offers a four-semester-based Master’s degree with a specialization in curriculum and evaluation. The department offers the courses to prepare human resources such as curriculum designer, curriculum evaluator, curriculum researcher, test developer, test analyst, and test researcher. These courses equip graduate students with the fundamental knowledge and skills required in the areas of curriculum development and assessment practices. Considering various designs and approaches of curriculum development, we engage our students in preparing an appropriate framework for designing curricula of different levels of education. In addition, the department provides the graduates with required knowledge and skills for constructing, validating and standardizing tests. Furthermore, our graduates are equipped with the knowledge and skills for pedagogy and evaluation of educational programs.
