Use Your Mobile Phone To Answer Examination Questionpaper!

Mobile phones are not permitted for use by students in college campuses in many Indian universities. However authorities of Seshadripuram First Grade College in Yelahanka, Karnataka State have found an out-of-the-box solution to utilize mobile phones in their institution. They allow the students to mark attendance and to answer question papers in examinations.

The students are provided with free simple mobile phones with games and texting features disabled. The phones incorporate Interactive Platform On Mobile (IPO_MO)feature. Students have to mark their attendance through their mobile phone within 15 minutes of commencement of class. Late attendance beyond 15 minutes is disallowed automatically. If a student abstains from class for more than 3 days, his parents are informed about his absence for corrective action.

Examination questions are objective type with 4 optional answers and the correct answer has to be clicked. The student has to answer as many as 120 questions in a 3-hour examination. There is no scope for copying.

Management as well as students are happy with this novel and high-tech concept which simplifies many practical problems and prevents malpractices.

Other educational institutions may also follow this smart mobile technique soon.
