Bhubaneswar: IIT Bhubaneswar has created a state of the art method of holding online examinations to cap the loopholes in present systems.
The IIT method can be used for holding all types of examinations including the Class tests and end-semester examination of any institute. It will overcome the limitations of holding only computer based tests, lacking the robustness, reliability of invigilation and connection faced by the commercially available online examination systems.
According to Prof. RV Raja Kumar, Director, IIT Bhubaneswar, the proposed online examination system is robust and can be used for holding tests of wide ranging nature from simple computer based tests to detailed conventional examinations. The system uses a virtual examination hall, actual invigilators, question paper distribution on-line, and submission/reception of soft copies of answer books which may be printed
