Seshadripuram First Grade College, Yelahnka in Bangalore has taken up an extension to elaborate on its experiment of conducting students' exams on mobile phones for all the courses. Last year the college had launched a pilot project for conducting examination for some courses, whereby students were provided mobile handsets preloaded with questions with four options as answers and the students had to click the correct answer, revise it and then click the submit button.
Dr M Prakash, Principal, Seshadripuram First Grade College, Yelahnka, mentioned that effort is being taken to make evaluation and assessment paperless and speedy. According to Dr Prakash, students have to attempt 40 questions in one hour for tests while 120 questions have to be answered in three hours during exams. In order to avoid cheating, questions are jumbled and its order is different for each student. The mobile software for this initiative has been developed by Bangalore-based IPOMO (Interactive Platform On Mobile) Communications.
