The University (Jawaharlal Nehru Technological University, Hyderabad) has evolved an innovative system of examination and evaluation procedure which is highly efficient and automated.
Electronic Distribution of Examination Question papers (For External Exams):
The University examinations in all the affiliated colleges of JNTU, Hyderabad will be conducted by the University through its Nodal centres. In this procedure the question papers are randomly generated by the computers and they are stored in the electronic form duly encrypted. These encrypted soft copies are sent to the examination centres. These question papers can be decrypted by entering three levels of passwords. The final password will be issued by the university 30 minutes before the commencement of examination which will help the colleges to decrypt the question paper and print them at their centers. This gives full fool proof system
Online examination for Internal Evaluation :
This University is looking for bringing continuous evaluation system of the students which is essential in technical education. This can be achieved through online quiz examinations. This year, on line examination is successfully implemented for the first time in all affiliated engineering colleges. According to this examination procedure, quiz examination will be conducted simultaneously in all the colleges affiliated to JNTU where papers will be generated by the computer from the question bank available online. This procedure helps to implement the continuous evaluation systems since the paper setting and evaluation is automated and also ensures uniform evaluation.
In every semester, there will be three internal exams, out of which one will be online as described in the above paragraph, and the remaining two will be of manual mode. Out of these three exams, the best of three marks will be considered for the student for every subject.
Double Valuation System :
In order to make evaluation system perfect and to do justice to all the students, “Double valuation” system is introduced with effect from November, 2005 for all affiliated engineering colleges. According to this procedure each answer book will be evaluated independently by two examiners. These examiners will award the marks on different award lists without marking on the answer books. These two award lists will be compared by the Chief Examiner of the subject. If the difference between these two valuations is within the prescribed limits, the higher marks will be awarded to the student. If the differences are more than the prescribed limit the Chief Examiner will finalize the marks in consultation with the two examiners. The above examination procedure, make the foolproof examination and justified evaluation.
