Speaking at the valedictory ceremony, Prof. P. Rozario Dharmesh Fernandez, Professor-cum-Deputy Director of CIIL spoke about the importance of testing and evaluation methods in the current educational system. He further said  that current techniques of testing and evaluation should be implemented from Primary to University-level of education.

Prof. Sam Mohanlal, former Professor of CIIL, said that sometimes teachers use tough and ambiguous language to assess the subject which is not correct. The language used should be correct, balanced and communicative.

Dr. M. Balakumar, former Reader-cum-Research Officer, CIIL, encouraged the participants to make maximum use of this opportunity by implementing what they learnt in this workshop in their own respective classrooms.   

Pankaj Dwivedi, Officer In-charge of NTS-I, welcomed.  Dr. V. Ilangovan, SRP and Dr. R. Shakunthala, JRP, NTS-India coordinated this training programme. Prof. D. G. Rao, Director, CIIL, was the overall patron of the workshop.
