Retd teachers may check university papers

MUMBAI: If the government has its way, then it will be the second year in a row for Mumbai University to have its exam answer sheets evaluated by temporary, contractual and maybe even retired teachers. The government has taken this decision to finish evaluation on time across all universities in the state, not ready to depend on teachers who are boycotting exam work.

Though academicians and students are apprehensive about the suggestion, some believe the government resolution, issued on March 20, is a precaution and the matter will be resolved subsequently.

"Last year, Mumbai University had lowered the bar for the qualification of evaluators. According to the rule, the minimum teaching experience for an evaluator is supposed to be three years, but last year, those with one-year experience also assessed papers," a principal said. "The move had raised doubts about the quality of evaluation. It will be a repeat of last year, if seasoned teachers do not correct papers." Complaining that the government did not seem to have higher education as priority, she said if papers were assessed by temporary teachers, the universities would need senior teachers for moderation.

A TYBCom student, Rajan N, said, "We will question the assessment quality if last year's process is repeated. Many may go for revaluation."

St Andrews College principal Marie Fernandes said, "I have only three teachers in my degree college for exam work, against the requirement of 18. We do not even have question papers ready for the first- and second-year exams."

Usha Mukundan, principal of RJ College in Ghatkopar, seemed confident of teachers resuming work. "The teachers will definitely participate in assessment." Another principal said several teachers were upset by the turn of events. "With the government not showing sign of resolving the issue, many teachers don't want to extend the boycott. If exams are postponed, it will affect the students as well as their vacation plans," said the principal.

Times View: Students don't deserve this

Is a hassle-free examination and evaluation process asking for too much? This is the second in a year in a row when the evaluation process is under a cloud, primarily because of fears that the regular evaluators may not do the job. This is not a comment on the merit or the qualification of stand-in evaluators; but students do not deserve a system that cannot guarantee them a regular, no-tension evaluation process.
