30 – 31 March 2020
In these uncertain times of the pandemic, we have had 4 extensions of national and state lockdown. Gradually the restrictions are being relaxed and the economy will gain a positive foothold.
Meanwhile the institute had to stop it's regular teaching and learning activities in the mid of March 2020. The evaluation pattern chosen by the concerned faculty at the start of the semester had to be revised due to the lockdown, according to the given circumstances. Our Director Dr. Manoj Narwade suggested that the approach has to be changed. The institute needs to offer more flexibility to its students. And thus, PCMRD tried to overcome the crisis that arose in the educational field by using various ICT techniques.
MCQ (Multiple Choice Questions) was one such evaluation chosen for PCMRD's MBA students. A database of more than 100 questions per course was developed by the teaching staff of the concerned courses. This evaluation was conducted on the online platform developed by the institute.
In spite of facing several technical hitches, the faculty of PCMRD was able to conduct the MCQ examination of the entire batch successfully.
