Web-Based Question Bank in Indian Higher Education: An Open Educational Resource
Parthasarathy, M.; Ananthasayanam, R.
Journal of Educational Technology, v8 n4 p9-14 Jan-Mar 2012
Question bank provides an opportunity to improve the evaluation, learning and answering skills among the students, questioning logics among the teachers, and examination patterns among curriculum designers. The question bank is not a learning material but supports as self-evaluation guide. In India, almost 259 State universities administer examinations for more than 22,000 colleges, but only few universities electronically archive the past examination questions (PQ) prepared for future use. Internet will be an effective ICT tool for accessing PQ from anywhere and anytime, and hence distributing question banks as web-based Open Educational Resource (OER) would help enormous student and teacher community in India. Further, the systematic Web-based Past Examination Question Bank (WPQB) with customized search facilities will provide a flexible access to question bank.
