Different Opinions on Conducting Pre-Board Exams Online
One of the school principal in talk with a news media said that they are employing artificial intelligence based platforms to ensure smooth conduct of the exam. The AI software will monitor the students as they are taking the test, will take photos every few seconds and create a time lapse videos which will be shared with the teachers. It will also help in identifying the students who are using unfair means or looking away during the exam.
The online classes have been progressing well in many schools, however, when some schools conducted some tests from September-November, they were not found as per the expectations. The better-than usual performance in half-yearly or midterm exams have left the teachers and parents worried about the fairness of the exercise. However, many of these schools have learnt from their lesson and will improve methods of assessing the students for their upcoming preboard exams.
The school authorities shall counsel parents to help them in monitoring so that students remain integral during the exams.
In conversation with a media, a student from prominent NCR school said that they have been asked keep a mirror behind them when appearing for online exams. This will help the school authorities capture more angles. Principal of Birla Vidya Niketan said that they will hold pre-boards in offline mode later and will hold mid-terms in December month. Furthermore, an oral assessment will also be conducted later.
What Could Possibly Go Wrong for CBSE Pre Board Exams?
One of the major concern of the school authorities that if they are going to employ AI based platforms, students shall need two devices – basically one to download the question paper and another with a web-cam option. However, now the problem arises that two devices may not be available to all the students. Schools before moving forward with this plan will need to take key account of this and ensure that no student is at disadvantage and are assessed equally.
