The Institute of Lifelong Learning (ILLL) of Delhi University (DU) conducted the first online examination for the students of B.Sc. programme. The exam was conducted at Miranda House and Deen Dayal Upadhyay (DDU) College. More than 800 students appeared for the online examination conducted by the varsity. The examination was of 60 minutes duration. Several others will appear for the online examination on June 9 and 13.
Terming this as the beginning of the next generation examination in higher education, Professor A.K. Bakhshi, Director, ILLL said the success of this pilot-run would help ILLL make the Computer Based Test (CBT) an integral part of the examination reforms in future. ‘Not only students, but examiners and evaluators also support the online examination. We conduct the exam to test students’ application and knowledge and one can develop such questions for online exams as well. In fact, we already have the results although we have not declared them today,’ said Professor Bakhshi.
