ISLAMABAD, Pakistan: The Federal Board of Intermediate and Secondary Education (FBISE) has decided to introduce the E-Marking System in paper checking by adopting modern technology to ensure hundred per cent transparency in the examinations.
The pilot project of the online marking system has been completed, the Chairman Federal Board Dr Ikram Ali Malik said in an exclusive talk with the state-run news agency on Monday.
Dr Ikram Ali said initially, the paper of computer science would be checked through modern e-marking system in the next session, and later papers of other subjects would also be checked through this system.
The Chairman said the FBSIE had checked the papers of computer science through e-marking system as a pilot project in the last session which remained successful. This project would save the time of teachers and ensure the transparency in marking process, he added.
The online system would be centralized under which different questions of a paper would be sent to more than one teacher, the Chairman said adding the teachers would send them back through the system, immediately after marking.
Dr Ikram said this system would ensure complete elimination of favoritism and other reservations by the students.
Initially, he said the training had been imparted to only two teachers while imparting training to more teachers would further strengthened the online checking system.
Recently, an eminent educationist and assessment expert Professor Dr Norman Reid of Glasgow University, Scotland had imparted quality international training to master trainers in different subjects through “Teachers Training Assessment” to enhance their capacity building, he added.
