The BSEB had decided to go for the digital evaluation of the answer sheets in order to check the anomalies during the evaluation process in the intermediate exams.
Anand Kishor, BSEB chairman said, "The board would conduct digital evaluation of answer sheets of intermediate examination 2017. Initially it was only to be done for Patna and Vaishali district as they have the maximum number of students."
The board is also considering the digital evaluation of examination on large scale in future.
In a press release it was mentioned," Under digital evaluation system, answers sheets would be scanned after bar-coding them. The scanned copies would then be sent to an examiner for evaluation in a computer at the evaluation center concerned through a centralized server." This will help in eliminating the chance of error in totaling.
Last year, the board also conducted the digital evaluation of the answer sheets of compartmental exams.Right now, being able to conduct cheating free exams of plus two is the biggest challenge before the BSEB as that last year topper
scam left the BSEB name scarred.
