The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) has decided to adopt advance technology to prevent use of unfair means and other corrupt practices during the conduct of examinations.

As per the decision, the Board has decided to use data analytics to detect cases/centres having high probability of recourse to unfair means during examinations.

Already a lot of measures have been taken by the CBSE, including constant monitoring through appointment of external observers/flying squads and use of CCTVs to check such practices.

In a release, the CBSE said a pilot analysis was carried out with regard to the January 2021 CTET examination data in collaboration with Central Square Foundation (CSF) and Playpower Labs to develop algorithms to identify suspicious data patterns at the centre and the individual test-taker level.

“Based on the analysis results and the algorithms developed, CBSE has decided that such analysis will be extended to other administered examinations,” the release read.

CBSE will use advanced data analytics to detect, respond and therefore, in the long run, prevent irregularities in academic testing across all major CBSE administered exams in the country. On the basis of such analysis, CBSE aims to identify examination centres where the data indicates the existence of malpractices during the conduct of examinations.

“With this, appropriate measures can be taken to strengthen the reliability of the examinations and to deter any such malpractices in the future. This will be used to strengthen the reliability of National Achievement Survey (NAS), Central Teachers Eligibility Test (CTET) and Board examinations conducted by CBSE,” the Board release added.
