Systematic teaching through long time tested model will certainly improve the effectiveness of teaching-learning process in higher education. Teaching through Entry Test & Summarization is an effective model named 'Aithal model of effective classroom teaching' in Higher Education Training developed by Prof. Aithal combines both positive and negative motivation and integrated into a best practice. According to this model each class of one hour duration starts with silent prayer for one minute to recall the career objective or goal of individual students. As an entry test a set of questions on the topic discussed in the previous class will be displayed on the board. In the mean time students will get time to think the right answer, while the attendance is being taken. Students will be randomly picked to answer the entry test questions. The appreciation works as a positive motivation. After the teaching session, 2 to 3 students randomly picked are asked to summarize the class. The summarization opportunity for the students alerts the students throughout the class writing down the gist of the session and concentrate in the topic discussed in the class. The readiness in right answer can avoid possible shame thereby act as a negative motivation during summarization.
