Bangalore University is going digital to ensure that results are fair and evaluators are accountable for their work. Beginning this year, all evaluation work for the university's undergraduate courses will be digital.
About 45,000 answer-scripts of Bachelor of Computer Applications (BCA) were taken up under a digital evaluation system at Maharani Lakshmi Ammanni College on a trial basis. The answer scripts were of exams conducted in April/May 2011. About 50% of the answer scripts were evaluated last week. The varsity is now planning to implement the system in a full-fledged manner for all its undergraduate courses from the October/November (2011) examinations. "Manual evaluation is not just time consuming, it also has scopes for errors. An evaluator going about his job manually may overlook or miss an answer sheet. There have been instances of wrong marks being awarded due to incorrect totaling. Digitalization will eliminate all such errors," varsity vice-chancellor Prabhu Dev told media persons in Bangalore on Tuesday. According to Prabhu Dev, the digitalization of evaluation will also not leave room for any kind of malpractice. "If any mistake is committed by evaluators, colleges or the university, the final sufferers will be students. To avoid all this, we have decided to adopt the digital evaluation system," he said. Currently, BU employs about 2,000 teachers for evaluation work. The digitalization of evaluation will, however, not reduce the required manpower. The evaluation target of 36 answer scripts a day also remains. The university will soon train its faculty in the digital evaluation system at a new computer lab that will be opened at Central College campus. Under the current system, BU provides results within 25 days of the completion of examinations. After the digital evaluation system is implemented in a full-fledged manner, it will be able to declare results within 10-15 days of the completion of exams. "We are also thinking of posting answer scripts online in the future, so that evaluators can access them by sitting at home and evaluate," said Prabhu Dev.
