TCS Marking as a Service is a digital marking solution that scans and marks students' answer booklets securely and accurately. The solution follows a four-step process of marking project planning for allocation of evaluators, scanning answer booklets for quality checks, reporting and analytics to track performance, and finally, collating scores to publish results.
Remote education models require an effective marking mechanism to ensure accurate assessment of students’ progress and continuous tracking of outcomes. However, the increasing demand for re-evaluations from the students and parents requires transparency and accuracy to strengthen the collaboration of multiple stakeholders. Institutions also need to be prepared for a high inflow of students, which might increase the teacher workload and reduce the focus on student development and nurturing. The manual marking of physical answer books is time-consuming and laborious, requiring secure storage throughout the evaluation process, increasing overall costs.
