Rekha Ramesh,

Doctoral Research Scholar, IDP in Educational Technology, IIT Bombay

Associate Professor, Computer Department, Shah and Anchor Kutchhi Engineering College, affiliated to Mumbai University

I am a PhD student in the Inter-Disciplinary Program in Educational Techology at Indian Institute of Technology Bombay. I am pursuing my doctoral research under the guidance of my Ph.D. supervisor Prof. Sridhar Iyer, Dept. of Computer Science and Engineering, IIT Bombay and Prof. M. Sasikumar, Centre for Development of Advanced Computing (CDAC), Mumbai. My research work focuses on developing a Aritificial Intelligence based software solution that facilitates the measurement of the quality of Assessment Instrument. I have developed a framework that takes syllabus, a set of learning objectives of a course and domain ontology as input and when given an Assessment Instrument, provides its “Goodness measure". The framework can also be used to teach novice teachers to write good assessment questions. The research is being carried out in CS applications domain and the target population is engineering undergraduates.

I am also working as an Associate Professor in Computer Engineering Department of Shah and Anchor Kutchhi Engineering College which is affiliated to Mumbai University. I have a teaching experience of about 15 years. I have taught subjects like Artificial Intelligence, data warehousing and Mining, Analysis of Algorithms, and Soft Computing.
