With only a few professors turning up at centralised assessment process (CAP) centres of the University of Pune,officials have decided to take strict action against them.
It has come into our notice that not all teachers who have been assigned the duty of paper assessment come to the CAP centres citing various reasons. We have asked the CAP centres to give details of the teachers
who have not turned up. Once
the details come,we will take strict action, said Vice-Chancellor
W N Gade.
Debarring them from assessment is right punishment for them. But the problem with this is that the professors dont actually
want to assess the papers. So this punishment will turn out to be a blessing in disguise, said a senior UoP official.
Talking about the problems that the teachers are facing regarding setting question papers in credit system,Gade said: We have already sent them to various workshops related to the examination process throughout the year and we are still doing so. The principals can approach us for further assistance if needed.
Indicating that the problems related to external department will be solved within a week,Gade said,Almost 90 percent problems have been solved. The only thing left is to tackle the problem of postgraduate students. We have already talked about it in the senate meeting and a solution based on the senate discussion will be taken this week. Students organisations had opposed the move that made it compulsory that only a external department graduate could apply for PG courses in the external department.
Gade added that the ordinances for reforms in examination section had been cleared and sent to the governor for a final approval. He said matter pertaining to entrance test for management courses will also be taken up in the academic council soon.
