The Association of University Teachers (Zone-III) here has welcomed the move of the Thiruvalluvar University administration to initiate action against teachers who had committed errors in the evaluation of answer papers of the November-December, 2013, examinations.

In a statement, the association joint secretary professor S Kumar said that nearly 80 per cent of the teachers, who corrected the answer papers, were unqualified as per UGC norms and wondered how the university administration permitted those teachers to do evaluation work.

Referring to statements made by Vice Chancellor and Controller of Examinations in the media, pleading innocence in the matter of publication of faulty results of students, Kumar said it showed the inability to manage examination without efficient staff and a rigid examination system. He appealed to the Vice-Chancellor to order an impartial enquiry into the matter.

The university cannot shirk its responsibility that they should conduct examinations and publish results promptly, he added.
