Nisha Dabhi, Dharitri Parmar, Alpna Mathur, Ishita Jana.


Background: Online teaching assessment was the only available choice for faculties and students during coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic to continue medical education. Because of this sudden transition, there were many challenges faced by both faculties and students.

Aim and Objectives: To determine perception of faculty and to evaluate the feasibility of online teaching-assessment in medical education.

Materials and Methods: An observational cross-sectional study was conducted after obtaining institutional ethical approval, using pre-designed and semi-structured questionnaire administered through Google form to 101 participants who gave consent for participation. A 5-point Likert scale was used for collecting responses regarding perception and attitude. Responses were collected, tabulated and analyzed statistically in Microsoft excel by calculating percentages, mean score, and standard deviation. Chi-square test was used to analyze qualitative data.

Results: Out of 101 participants, 46% wanted to restrict online teaching to the COVID era only.71% thought that they required more training, better infrastructure, and technical resources for effective online learning and assessment. 84% agreed that online teaching has a limited role in learning of practical skills which is a very important aspect of medical studies.

Conclusion: Perception of faculties about online teaching-assessment is that it should be restricted to COVID era only or as a supplement with better infrastructure and training for effective learning and to enhance self-directed-learning in medical students along with routine off-line teaching-assessment.
