Gujarat Students Take Tests on WhatsApp

Teacher Insights

Gujarat Education Department has launched WhatsApp based weekly examinations on a trial basis from January onwards. Students of classes III to V will take examinations for Gujarati and Environmental Science subjects on Whatsapp. Each test has been designed by Samagra Shiksha and education department’s Command and Control Centre (CCC) as a set of ten multiple-choice questions. The logic behind these tests is that a child should be able to assess himself based on weekly online learning, according to P Bharathi, State Project Director of Samagra Shiksha. There is no time limit so there is no pressure of an exam but only to self-evaluate areas where they need to work hard.
