To ensure accuracy in evaluation of answer scripts, the Board of Secondary Education, Assam (SEBA) and Assam Higher Secondary Education Council (AHSEC) plan to adopt On Screen Marking (OSM) system soon.
The answer scripts of HSLC and HS examinations will be scanned, uploaded centrally and then downloaded at the evaluation centres online. Examiners will be given a user-ID through which they could access and download the batch of answer scripts assigned to them for evaluation.
As per sources- this system will be developed in such way that the answer scripts cannot be submitted to the head examiner in case there is any unassessed portion or unmarked answer on the answer copies. If it applies, then there will no chances of leaving any question unassessed and candidates will not be deprived of getting their deserving marks.
The decision to adopt the OSM system was taken at the end of the 47th annual conference of Council of Boards of School Education in India (COBSE) held in Guwahati on Saturday.
