Board Exams Back ! Difficulties Likely to Arise
The past 2-3 years were eventful for the education sector. From the leaking of the 12th grade chemistry papers to the return of the dreaded Board exams, there were many ‘disturbing’ news headlines for the education sector.
Security of question papers: Ensuring security of question papers has always been a challenge, especially with regard to high-stake exams. Even a single glitch can impact all the students.
Sound Examination processes and robust technology-led solutions can ensure that question papers are stored digitally in secure locations, and printed only hours before the exam.
Problems with Re-evaluation: The evaluation of answer scripts is a tedious process and can be much more exhaustive when administered for a high-stake exams. The possibility of totaling and tabulation errors and missing questions can lead to students applying for re-evaluation. Several Government organisations and other Boards have digitalised the process of evaluation to increase transparency and accuracy of correction to minimize such errors and delays in publishing Results.
Delays in publishing Results: There have been instances of the results being delayed due to the tedious process of large-scale evaluation, loss of papers or errors in evaluation. This causes undue worry and anxiety to students and parents alike. By using the right technology tools, these situations can be avoided. The system of digital evaluation allows for the scanning of answer scripts, enabling multiple simultaneous evaluations of the same answer script.
Convenience for test takers: With a Centralised Board exam, only the identified schools serve as examination centres. This often proves inconvenient for students who get centres in far-off or unfamiliar locations. A robust application process can allow the Board to spread the exam venues at locations closer to candidates.
The focus should now be on what can be done to ensure a smooth and successful conduct of the exam process and how the existing technology tools can be put to good use.
