GUWAHATI, Sept 13 � The Board of Secondary Education, Assam (SEBA) is introducing a slew of reforms, with the help of modern technology, for faster and error-free result processing that include updated registration and examination forms for Class IX and X students as well as answer booklets with security features.

While the optical mark recognition (OMR) mechanism has been introduced along with existing intelligent character recognition (ICR) method in the registration and examination form, many other security measures have been introduced to do away with the malpractices and reduce the chances of human error as well.

The declaration of results is supposed to be advanced by three to four weeks through this technology.

Addressing the media here, JVN Subramanyam, Chairman SEBA, appealed to the students as well as the teachers concerned, parents and students� groups etc., not to get perturbed by the new set-up as it entails no change in the examination or evaluation for the students, but would only upgrade the result processing with the help of new technology.

�As part of the capacity building, three-step training for teachers, heads of the institutions and district academic councils is under way. OMR technology has an extremely low error rate and some Boards in Nagaland, West Bengal, Chattisgarh, Odisha, Maharashtra etc, have already been using this,� he said.

The ICR-OMR sheets on answer booklets with barcodes would have students� details pre-printed on the sheet, which would also ensure secrecy of evaluation.

The SEBA Chairman said that the admit cards for HSLC/AHM Examination 2015 would also be available online for direct download from seba.assam.gov.in.

In case of registration in Class IX, OMR forms would be filled up by the students with the help of teachers. Online registration has also been introduced through the website.

Answer booklets, a major source of malpractices, would also have some security measures from now on, that includes SEBA logo printed on the pages, with the help of web printing technology and specific page numbers allotted to the pages.

�As the data digitization process is going on, more information would be kept online for wider access. The SEBA Examination Verification Application (SEVA) available on the SEBA website allows students to verify or download their marksheets or pass certificates from the website itself without having to travel to SEBA office.�
