GTU has set up a very robust system of examination. For assessment,
GTU’s system is such that every examiner gets a random mixture of answer-books from
different colleges. Moreover due to the bar-code, the examiner would not know the
identity of the student, whose answer-book he is assessing.
Thus no one can charge
our examiners with favouritism or victimization.
What will e-assessment do for the students?: The facility
of re-assessment will be available to all the students of 1st-year to 4th year of
BE. In addition it will now be possible to provide re-assessment to the 1st and
the 2nd semesters of DE also.
This will increase the faith in the assessment system of GTU.
The advantage to the Faculty Members: Our Faculty Members
work hard to set up the question papers for the semester-end exams and for assessing
the answer-books well. However whenever a student does not get the marks as expected
by him, he may say that he had failed because his answer-book had not been examined
properly. Due to the cynicism, prevailing in our society for every organization,
the student’s parents and friends may start believing that it was so. When re-assessment
is available, the student can use the tool to re-confirm that the marks are correct.
In the small number of cases, where some human error had been committed, it would
This will contribute to improving the faith that our society has
in the Faculty Members. One can learn well only when one has respect for his teachers.
Thus the society will be able to get a better learning system.
While GTU will correct any mistake, that may have been committed
in the assessment, my request to the GTU community and the media is to take due
care in saying that injustice has been done. It is the first time that a technological
university is providing the facility of re-assessment for all the four years of
its BE program. Many technological universities in the country are following the
policies, initiated by GTU, in many areas. Undue criticism and uncontrolled behaviour
by the GTU community and the media may lead to a situation, where the systems in
other universities may not open up.
Let us celebrate this opening up of the system at GTU and let us
all use while using and taking advantage of the system. Let us not do anything,
which brings down the reputation of our university.
