CBSE Aggressive Mode on Digital Interface for Interaction with Schools
The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) apart from being the largest, most prominent boards in the country, is also known for its initiatives in the field of education. Currently, CBSE board is focusing all of its attention on taking initiatives for digitizing the interaction process between schools and board. Just a little while ago, the board also releases the list of its various e-initiatives which has taken place over the last couple of years. One of the recent additions in the board's e-initiatives allow external examiners for class 12 th to upload the marks for practical exams directly to the boards server.
Also, as a result of CBSE digital campaign schools can now generate and download question papers for various classes for all exams only exception being the class 10 th and 12 th. Not only can this, but marks for various exams also be directly uploaded to the board's server. The same facility is also available for the externals coming to conduct the practical during the board exams.
CBSE is doing its best it can to leverage the power of Information and Communication Technology (ICT) for providing state of the art facilities to the stakeholders and schools worldwide.
A whooping number of 17,000 schools are already using the various digital facilities being provided by CBSE board under its digital program. The biggest advantage of this is that marks can be uploaded instantly with a single click of the mouse button. This shift from manual to technology driven system has various advantages and some of the most important are:
- It provides prompt access to reports, marks, question papers etc.
- Information can be retrieved very easily.
- Increased responsiveness among schools and CBSE itself.
- Other small and big benefits are visible in terms of time, energy, manpower and finances.
Also, with the application of Information and Communication Technology (ICT) the board has switched to completely online pre and post-examination management system. This not only includes the examinations of class 10 th and 12 th but also includes various other competitive examinations which the board conducts throughout the year. With ICT the board also introduced:
- Online registration system for std. 9 th and 11 th
- Data collection
- Question papers for summative assessments
- Facilities like online rechecking and re-evaluation
- And CBSE's Central Teachers Eligibility Test (CTET) authentication has been initiated online.
Among all these fantastic achievements board also launched other web based features under E-CBSE which allow schools to:
- Generate the roll numbers for main exams
