TCS Marking as a Service is a digital solution that scans and marks students' answer booklets securely and accurately.
The solution follows a four-step process: 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 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 teacher workload and reduce the focus on student development and nurturing. Manual marking of physical answer books is time-consuming and laborious, requiring secure storage throughout the evaluation process, increasing overall costs.
TCS Marking as a Service enables digital marking of students’ answer sheets with a standardized evaluation approach.
The solution has an integrated analytics engine that generates reports to track evaluators' performance and map trends. The three key features of the solution are:
An integrated artificial intelligence (AI) platform with features for ease of use, intelligent controls to prevent human errors, and community connection to access national or global best practices
A pool of certified and experienced resources available on demand to ensure agile marking processes and certainty in results publishing timelines
A built-in analytics tool that gives insights on marking trends to ensure standardization and consistency in the evaluation process powered by seeding methodology
With TCS’ solution, educational institutions can realize the following benefits:
