Education is becoming essentially boundaryless, thanks to technology.
The proliferation of technology and changing customer expectations are driving educational institutions to move away from traditional classroom teaching and adopt phygital models. Assessments are an essential aspect of the learning process, and a solution that makes it interactive and intuitive for students is much needed. We propose a digital platform that reimagines the assessment and marking process to provide hyper-personalized evaluation reports to learners.
TCS Assessment as a Service solution automates the end-to-end assessment process and helps institutions conduct formative and summative examinations with ease. The solution identifies and mitigates security breaches to provide a secure digital learning experience students and proctors. TCS iON™, an industry-recognized assessment platform, with integrated pre-exam, during the exam, and post-exam features, helps expedite the assessment process securely.
Digital transformation is a priority area for most education institutes worldwide.
As the digitalization of the education industry gains pace, institutions are looking to increase transparency in the assessment process and install robust security protocols to mitigate any breaches. Moreover, the increasing logistics costs and rigid and unsecured processes for question paper creation and distribution add additional pressure on the institutions to ensure seamless remote classes and assessments.
TCS Assessment as a Service is a digital assessment platform that supports a boundaryless assessment experience for candidates with multiple proctoring models. The solution has various authentication and encryption measures as part of the data and content security infrastructure. The TCS-owned assessment server allows whitelisting and time hardening to strengthen the solution’s security while providing scalability and seamless connectivity to enhance the remote assessment experience.
TCS’ solutions enable both on-center and remote assessments.
Key features of our solution include:
Self-proctoring: Enable candidate security functions such as login credentials and user ID verification to facilitate digital assessments anytime, anywhere without needing a proctor, even without internet connectivity.
Machine proctoring: Leverage the power of AI-ML and real-time analytics to identify any breaches, take appropriate measures, and ensure a seamless experience for students and proctors.
Dual proctoring: Combine human proctoring with machine proctoring, ensure double security for remote assessments and maintain the integrity of the exam process.
Time-tested assessment: Leverage TCS iON™ to use any of the components or flavors of assessment for speed and agility.
