In a pilot project to be launched from 2013 at CBSE affiliated schools in New Delhi, the Central Board of CBSE To Provide Students With Digitised Answer Sheets in Revaluation CasesSecondary Education (CBSE) has announced that class X students willing to apply for revaluation in case of doubts or controversy over the marking, will be provided with digitised answer sheets through emails. The system will be extended to class XII in 2014.

A senior CBSE official said the present system of manual evaluation of one answer-sheet by one teacher will be done away with and each answer-sheet will be evaluated by multiple teachers instead. CBSE has planned to cover soon all 2.5 lakh Class X boards answer-sheets to be digitised and introduce digital marking system to minimise the errors.

The answer-sheets will be first converted into a digital format to give access to multiple evaluators. Each evaluator will be allotted a specific section. “For example, a physics teacher will evaluate only the physics part of the science paper and so on. As only experts would be doing the job, the scope for error will be minimized,” CBSE chairman Vineet Joshi said.

So far, students willing to apply for revaluation could only get photocopies of their evaluated answer-sheets after the results. This would consume paper and time, which will be saved when the new system will be introduced next year. The pilot run of the project is going to cover about 50,000 students from Delhi schools.
