Method is to relate the level of PO with the number of hours devoted to the COs which address
the given PO. If
>40% of classroom sessions addressing a particular PO, it is considered that PO is addressed at Level 3
If 25 to 40% of classroom sessions addressing a particular PO, it is considered that
PO is addressed at Level
