For the coming school-based Summative Assessment for classes IX and X, the CBSE has decided to send question papers to schools online for the first time.
According to J. Ajeeth Prasath Jain, secretary Chennai Sahodaya Complex, the main advantage of this system is that confidentiality of the papers could be maintained even if schools scheduled an exanimation on different dates. The question papers would be generated through Integrated Test Management System, he said.
Schools have been asked to register by February 15 through the CBSE website, so that they may download the question papers for all subjects on 5 March and 11 March for classes IX and X. Similarly, the marking scheme for the class IX and X examinations can be downloaded on 19 and 29 March respectively.
This system would be applicable only for question papers of school-based examinations, Mr. Prasath said.
