Mumbai University to digitalize Answer – Sheet Assessment

Mumbai University has now decided to computerise the assessment process of answer – sheets.

All answer – sheets will now be scanned and teachers will be expected to evaluate them online, using only the cursor of the mouse. They would not be able to make any additional changes. Such technological modifications would possible only be implemented from the March 2013 exams onwards.

University has decided to go in for computerised evaluation of the answersheets after finding marks of two students increased 44 and 54 from 0 and 4 respectively in revaluation process. It was found that their answer – sheets were not checked and marks were given randomly. Students and parents alike want error – free evaluation.

Presently, Visvesvarya Technological University ( VTU ) has already become the first university in the country to initiate a digital evaluation system of examination answer scripts and to announce results within one week. 20 lakh answer scripts of three lakh students across 193 colleges are being evaluated online.
