Exams should be done on computers

Post by Ethwar » 16 Aug 2019, 04:55

The nation is lagging behind in every sector that technology is concerned. Everyone knows that standard exams are done on computers and white paper is used to do the problems. Computers can be used for short answers, multiple choice and essay questions and also inputting math answers and having professors grade them on their computers.

Why this is the best idea?

1. Test questions are random.
2. The computers have softwares that monitor the exams.
3. It will ensure that nobody cheats or copies from each other.
4. It takes only 2 teacher to guard the entire classroom. One teacher sits in the front and the other in the back, while the one in the front is monitoring the screens from his computer.
