Implementation of Data Analytics in Examination by CBSE

Education Information

Antriksh Johri, Director (IT), Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) proposed that CBSE will use advanced data analytics to guarantee fairness in its examination process.  The centre is currently employing strategies like applying external examiners, close monitoring through CCTV's and flying squads to ensure fairness in the examination.

Mr Johri recommended the use of data analytics in centres where there is a probability of deception during examinations. A pilot analysis has been done on January 2021 Central Teacher Eligibility Test (CTET) examination data in collaboration with the Central Square Foundation and Playpower Labs to develop algorithms to identify suspicious data patterns at the centre and the individual test-taker level. CBSE has now decided to extend these analytics to other administered exams so as to prevent any irregularities in the exams conducted.
