Mumbai University relaxes assessor eligibility normsEditorial Team123|0Last Updated:09:03 am, May 06, 2012
Evaluators’ boycott over the assessment process has made Mumbai University relax the minimum teaching requirement for exam assessors to one year.
In the last 30 days, Mumbai University's Board of Examinations (BOE) has twice relaxed the eligibility norms for evaluators. Initially, the university reduced the eligibility requirement from three to two years and now there is a reduction of another year.
Sources reveal that several unqualified and ineligible teachers are correcting papers. This can affect the quality of assessment. Also, the corrected papers are not being moderated as senior teachers are supporting the boycott.
In 2011, the university took more than 100 days to declare final year commerce results. This year was expected to be much worse, as large number of teachers are boycotting the assessment process.
But it turns out to be the other way round as presently, teachers are correcting about 100 papers in a day.
Mumbai University expects to declare Commerce results in another 10 days and TYBSc results soon after the Commerce results.
