DIPHU, March 28 – The answer book evaluation process, recently adopted by the Board of Secondary Education, Assam (SEBA), is allegedly causing a great deal of inconvenience to examiners, scrutinizers and head examiners.
It may be mentioned here that along with their counterparts in other evaluation zones of the State, examiners, scrutinizers and head examiners of the Diphu zone also complained of difficulties in evaluating the HSLC exam answer books under the new process on Friday.
The examiners alleged that they were given excess work this time in the name of error-free answer book evaluation. According to them, hardly three to five answer books can be evaluated on a day, whereas in the previous years, they evaluated more than 20 answer books a day.
The examiners further said that after evaluating the answer books, they have to put the marks in the Optical Mark Recognition (OMR) sheets and tally sheets, which also take a great deal of time.
Besides, they also complained that the remuneration given by the SEBA to the examiners for answer book evaluation is not commensurate with their labour.
The examiners, scrutinizers and head examiners demanded of the SEBA authority to increase the remuneration. They also maintained that the answer book evaluation would not be complete within the time-frame given by the SEBA due to the extra procedure involved.
