While online examination is the much easier way, to publish the result more accurate and faster, but still many institutions follow, descriptive examinations where the answer books are hand written and evaluated manually. The challenges of conventional evaluation are, the evaluators are to be invited to evaluation center or allow the evaluators to carry the answer books to home. The allocation of answer scripts to evaluators and maintain the transactions of allocation, return and reallocate to another are painful. A Registrar of University or a Controller of Examination, definitely expect a faster result publication, but it is completely dependent on the performance of evaluation by the evaluators. The objective of faster result publishing and evaluation should not fail to ensure the quality of evaluation in terms minimum time spent in an answer script and capacity of evaluating maximum scripts in a day. Let us think, a solution, where evaluators evaluate answer scripts online and to evaluate no allocation of answer scripts booklets to evaluators. You may feel it is imaginary, but it is real. On screen Evaluation System provides reliefs for the pains of manual evaluation process. JILIT provides a solution on software-as-a-service, and which can be hosted in a controlled environment like in a evaluation center or as a secured website in a cloud.
The answer scripts are scanned and loaded in the solution and it is evaluated, on screen, online. It is secretly codified to maintain confidentiality of student information. Evaluators are assigned with specific access rights with subject specialization. They can scribble, write, comment and annotate on screen. Evaluators can view question papers and model answer scripts during evaluation.. The question patterns are codified dynamically to validate the score pattern of the evaluator. System based checks for Marks entered, and auto totalling of obtained marks considering for Attended and Optional Questions attended are important feature of the system. In case of re-evaluation, unevaluated answer script can be loaded again in to the system to avoid tendency of following the first evaluator and gives a feel of fresh evaluation by second evaluator. To monitor the progress of evaluation, evaluator wise, subject-wise progress report, tabulated result, award sheet are some of the statistical reports which can be generated out of the system. On completion of evaluation, the marks entered are stored into the server and the evaluated copies are converted to pdf files. The evaluated images are bound as PDF file along with question paper with top sheet which is evidenced as a proof of evaluated answer script. This helps the institutions for answering the queries, re-evaluation request and RTI queries.
