Here are some limitations of Traditional Answer Sheet Checking Process


Physical Handling of Answer Sheet

Physical answer sheet handling and evaluation involves many administrative and logistical activities.



Logistics and storage of answer sheets

Cost for managing storage and handling of physical answer sheet is very high. Entire result processing may get delayed due to it.



Examiners travelling for answer sheet checking

Examiners and other personnel need to travel for answer sheet checking and moderation process.


Result Processing is manual and error prone.

Manual Result Processing for traditional process

It is impossible to track overall evaluation process centrally in the manual activities.

In case of student requests for re evaluation or photo copy of the answer sheet, someone need to get individual copy from the bunch of answer sheets.


All such work involves manual handling of answer sheet and it is tedious job considering there is thousands of answer sheets involved in this activity


Let’s check the Best Practices for Process of Onscreen Marking.


Answer Sheet Scanning


High speed scanners scan the answer sheets with proper masking process. Student identity information like name, Roll No is masked. Examiner would not be able to see these details.

Maintaining backup record of scanned answer sheet is easy compared to physical answer sheet storage. It can help you to save cost of storage.


Physical Answer sheet copies can be destroyed after certain period of time as you would always have access to digital version of it any time.


It is easy to retrieve digital copy of answer sheet with simple login.

It would enable transparent and fair evaluation process. It is possible to scan barcode of answer sheet and map it with specific student records.


Exam Pattern Mapping

Question Paper and examination pattern is defined in the software system. Examination information has attributes like Batch, Exam Name, Semester and Stream. Examination pattern is defined according to question paper format.

Information of students is imported in the system for each stream, semester and specialization.

Examiner Evaluation Process

Examiner can evaluate answer sheet digitally. Entire activities like login, annotation events, marks assignment is logged in the system. System can directly provide result of the evaluation for mark sheet printing process.


Moderation Activity

Even moderation activity is also simplified. Moderator can login and assign marks. You can define criteria for moderation and assign certain number of answer sheets for rechecking process. All manual activities of physical handling of answer booklets for moderation can be eliminated in this case.


If student requests for photocopy or rechecking of the answer sheet then it can be easily managed from the system.

Comparison of Traditional answer sheet checking and onscreen marking process.

Comparison of Onscreen marking with traditional evaluation process

In traditional process physical handling of answer sheets add to cost and manual activities.

In onscreen marking ,one time scanning eliminates physical handling of the answer sheets.

For physical answer sheet evaluation examiners need to travel to respective exam center for answer sheet evaluation.


 Onscreen marking removes this constraint, as examiners can evaluate answer sheet from any location.

Onscreen marking drastically reduces evaluation time to less than 5 to 6  minutes per answer sheet.

Overall result processing timeline can be improved significantly.

We have success stories where universities were able to reduce timeline of result processing from 45 days to just 8 days.
