Board exams on hi tech makeover 

A private firm from Bangalore, Mind Logic, made a presentation to officials from the department. The examination management system (EMS) promises to prevent question paper leaks and will ensure transparency in the evaluation system. Pargat Singh, the chief technology officer of the firm, said, "There are two modules in the EMS. One is the question paper delivery system, where the question papers will be delivered using the encryption technology method. The system will also have a question bank, which will enable, there would be a centralized system from where question papers can be released to the exam centre’s just before the exam and the centres can retrieve it using a key." The second module is called digital evaluation. The answer paper scripts will be scanned and fed to the system and can be evaluated online. An official from the department said, "It is a good initiative. But we will have to see the feasibility of the project in a smaller area before implementing it."

Rajendra Darda, school education minister, who sat through the presentation, refused to comment. A senior official said, "It is difficult to use the system for the large scale exams that we conduct in the state. However, the idea can be tried at a smaller scale. We conduct the exam for 30 lakh students. It is practically difficult to conduct it with this system. There could be a problem with rural areas where local issues like load shedding could lead to difficulties." The firm also made a presentation to the higher and technical education department. "The minister was present with officials from the examination boards of a couple of state universities. We agree that it would be a mammoth task to implement it at university/board level in the state, but we can take smaller steps towards achieving the goal," said Singh.
