Engineering exam paper evaluation to go completely online in Tamil Nadu

April 08, 2019

Top engineering institutions in Tamilnadu is planning to implement online evaluation of exam papers. This decision comes after repeated exam scams that rocked evaluation of mark sheets in Anna University.


The university will soon send a team of professors to Visvesvaraya Technological University (VTU) in Belgaum to study its online evaluation and question delivery method.


"The technology-based examination system needs to be done in different stages. In the first step, the delivery of question papers will be made online without physically transporting them to the exam centres. It would prevent question paper leaks," said M K Surappa, Vice-Chancellor of Anna University.


As per the existing process in VTU, coded question papers are made available just 30 minutes before the commencement of examinations at exam centres. The invigilators must take printouts and issue the question papers to the students.


After the examination, the answer scripts would be scanned for online evaluation.
