Online evaluation of CBSE class X answer sheets has begun at three centres in Lucknow. Close to 110 teachers are busy in online evaluation of mathematics answer sheets. While over 40 plus teachers are evaluating answer sheets at RLB Memorial Senior Secondary School and DPS, Indiranagar each, there are around 30 teachers at DPS, Eldeco.
CBSE coordinator, Lucknow, Jawaid Alam Khan said that once evaluation for mathematics ends, Hindi would begin.
CBSE has for the first time introduced digitized marking for class X board students. The on-screen marking, said officials will lead to an error-free evaluation. The biggest benefit of the online marking will be in terms of totaling. The online marking will rule out the possibility as the system will reject the answer sheet in case of wrong totaling. Only after one section would be marked, evaluators can start marking the other section.
CBSE handed the answer books in sealed packets to the service or the software provider after fixing bar-coded stickers by the chief secrecy officer of board examinations. The answer sheets were then scanned and put on screen for evaluation by examiners trained in using the software.
Computer-based evaluation and online marking of the board results will also ensure compliance of RTI provision which makes it mandatory that the answer sheets should be made available for scrutiny to the students, if they wish to see it.
