While Delhi University figured out how to pull off directing the online open-book assessments in spite of numerous scoldings from the Delhi High Court over its ineptness, fights from understudies and instructors, teachers at the varsity are presently confronting a huge number of issues assessing the appropriate response contents submitted on the web.
A lot to the awfulness of the educators assessing the appropriate response contents, their anxieties about online assessment turning a bad dream are working out with many announcing specialized glitches in the gateway and terrible outputs of answer sheets.
As the main period of the online open book test completed, educators said numerous issues, for example, various answer sheets, terrible sweeps or substitution of checked duplicates have left them confounded, disappointed and restless.

DU Teachers Association (DUTA) General Secretary Abha Dev Habib said that numerous instructors have whined of comparative specialized issues.
“Instructors of one stream are finding the solution sheets of different streams to assess. For instance, software engineering instructors are getting instrumentation, maths, science papers to assess,” Habib said.
Nonetheless, the specialized issue was later corrected after numerous educators whined of it. “Instructors were tense the entire evening as they thought about whether all the assessment work they had done as such far was cleared out because of some specialized blunder,” she included.
In the interim, issues like terrible sweeps have gotten risky for instructors. Sometimes, the pages have been joined up-side-down or a similar answer sheets have been transferred.
It is disorderly and we are setting aside twofold the effort to assess the appropriate response sheet. The sweeps are so terrible, we don’t comprehend what to think about them,” said the language educator.
