The Management of the University of Ghana has been petitioned by two students Jimmy Mawuse Adangbe and Godsway Cofie Obro Boateng to annul all real timed online tests and quizzes being conducted by some lectures.

The petitioners among other concerns have urged the University Management to solve the numerous reported difficulties students continue to encounter in the implementation of the e-learning module.

The lead petitioner, Jimmy Adangbe speaking to UniversNews said the University should immediately review its online assessment protocols to ensure that no student is left out, mentioning that scores of students have been affected by strict online tests carried out by some lecturers.

“As at now, no communication has been directed to the students who have failed as a result of the system, no communication has been directed to them to even know their fate, whether they have failed or a different test will be conducted for them,” he stated.

He unequivocally laments the Students’ Representative Council’s failure to find lasting solutions to students’ difficulties and worries.

“We have channeled these grievances to the SRC through the Executive Committee platform but no avail; they have not responded to our concerns. Since the SRC machinery has failed in addressing the concerns of students, we believe that we can take our own destinies into our own hands,” he lamented.

Jimmy Adangbe is, therefore, pleading on the Office of the Pro-Vice-Chancellor for Academic and Students’ Affairs to instruct the various departments to observe the laid down modalities for e-learning assessments.
