The Management of Osun State University has suspended the online continuous assessment for the 100 level and 200 level students due to some technical logistics that might not allow the students to have a better experience.
According to the Vice Chancellor the Online Continuous Assessment Test was suspended when the main problem was identified as the uncontrollable traffic on the university server as a result of students hitting it at the same time because of anxiety to write the tests.
Secondly, a number of the students who refused to activate their institutional email addresses earlier, rushed to do so at the last minute, and struggled to connect. These put pressure on the server, slugging it, and eventually making it ineffective. Let me state that, this is not an unusual occurrence even in climes with the best of technologies. For us, it’s part of the learning curve which we will surmount.
“A decision was reached to suspend the ongoing continuous assessment until further notice.
However, learning and interactions will continue for all students.
