A Quantitative approach with descriptive research design was conducted to assess the perception towards online teaching among school going students and undergraduate students during COVID Pandemic. Non-probability convenient sampling technique was used to select the samples of 60 students [30-school students, 30-undergraduate students. The data collection includes collecting demographic data and the samples were asked to fill the online survey self-questionnaire. The finding revealed that among school students 22(73.33%) had moderate level of perception, 5(16.67%) had poor perception and 3(10%) had good perception towards online teaching during COVID pandemic. It also shows that among college students 14(46.67%) had moderate level of perception, 10(33.33%) had poor perception and 6(20%) had good perception towards online teaching during COVID pandemic. It clearly portrays that the mean score of perception among school students was 24.73±6.32 and the mean score of perception towards college students was 24.57±6.39. The calculated student independent‘t’ test value of t = 0.101 was not found to be statistically significant. This clearly infers that there was no significant difference in the level of perception towards online teaching between the school and college students.
