Curriculum of any course not only related with teaching and examination. It is actually a total learning experience. It include

  5. Assessment method: written, Viva, Practical etc.
  6. Assessment instrument: written: Short answer questions, MCQs etc
  7. evaluation
  8. Also, Student's daily experience : their classroom, canteen, feild.

All are included in an curriculum.

To run a successful curriculum teacher and examiner also remember the goal or objectives of the curriculum. According to goal

  • select appropriate syllabus,
