JNTU examination system goes online
Hyderabad based Jawaharlal Nehru Technological University (JNTU) will conducts it examination through Internet from this session. This was announced by the JNTU Vice Chancellor K. Rajagopal. It will be the first university in the country to introduce online examination system for the students.
After the implementation of this programme engineering students of 240-odd colleges affiliated to the Jawaharlal Nehru Technological University (JNTU) now don’t have to go through the age-old tradition of writing the examinations. They can take the tests online and after the scheduled time the result will be flashed on the screen along with the mistakes committed and also solutions for the wrongly answered questions. JNTU Vice Chancellor K. Rajagopal said, "Online system is being introduced for internal assessment of marks as of now and its extension to other exams depends on the feedback.”
He also said that the university has created a question bank for each subject designed by subject experts. The student just needs to get onto the system at the college and key in the hall-ticket number. The computer randomly picks 20 questions with four choices of answers for each question. After the specified time the question page automatically vanishes and then within minutes the score sheet appears along with the correct answers.
The designed software ensures that no two students get the same question paper. "The score is also recorded immediately at the central server thus negating any chances of mischief," says K. Vijaykumar Reddy, Controller of Examinations. The system that comes into effect from this year has inherent advantages to plug leakage of question papers, bias and effective monitoring of the conduct of internal examinations by its large pool of affiliated engineering colleges. "Colleges that give marks without conducting the test cannot tamper with the system now," says Dr. Reddy.
