Mumbai: The University of Mumbai (MU) has set up monitoring committees to ensure a smooth assessment process of the ongoing winter term examination.

There are 11 zones, and each zone will be monitored by a committee comprising of five to six officers and an engineer.

 

The main responsibility of the committee will be to address the issues that are affecting the day to day assessment work done by the teachers, examiners and moderators and the officials at Centralised Assessment Process (CAP) centres.

“There are around 324 CAP centres, so a single official would not be able to solve the issues faced by all of them. Hence, this committee is created in order to look into even minor problems faced by our assessment team,” said a senior official of MU.

According to the official, the committees are not official bodies. “Though we it’s not right to form such a committee, we had to in order to have a smooth assessment procedure,” he added.

 

Teachers or the CAP centre officials can either email the MU or contact them after which the information will be passed to the monitoring committee.

“Immediately after receiving the complaint, (whether it is technical or minor) we shall visit that CAP centre and resolve it,” said the official.

This move of forming the committee and taking extra precautions for the ongoing winter term examination assessment comes after the Bombay high court instructed the university to ensure that the result delay fiasco is not repeated.
