BHUBANESWAR: Online evaluation of Plus Two Science answer sheets began on Tuesday at majority of 28 evaluation centres. Evaluators checked an average of five answer sheets on Tuesday while the process was supposed to begin on Wednesday.
On Monday, the evaluators were trained in digital evaluation process through dummy answer sheets by engineers of the service provider Tata Consultancy Services.
Chairman of Council of Higher Secondary Education (CHSE) Basudev Chattoi said the highest of 10 answer sheets were checked at an evaluation centre in Phulbani.
While all technical snags, server and user name issues that were reported on the first day have been sorted out, Chattoi said the teachers would take a few more days to acquaint themselves with the digital correction process. “We had given them training on e-evaluation at BJB Autonomous College in February but that was not adequate. Hence, we have asked the service provider to provide five to seven instructors at each centre to guide the evaluators,” said the CHSE Chairman.
Each evaluator would check 20 objective papers of 50 marks each for subjects like Zoology and Botany or 15 subjective papers of 70 marks each for Physics, Chemistry and Mathematics. They will be paid Rs 10 for each objective paper and Rs 15 for each subjective paper.
Meanwhile, there was a marginal rise in the number of evaluators who turned up at the evaluation centres on Tuesday. “The attendance figure stood at 82 to 83 per cent on Tuesday and we are hopeful of managing the evaluation process with them,” Chattoi said.
