The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) introduced the “Use of Advanced Data Analysis to Ensure Fairness in CBSE Administered Examination.”
The Board decided to conduct examination in a standardized manner while preventing the use of unfair methods. The unfair means are to be restrained and checked through:
- installation of CCTV cameras,
- appointment of externals or flying guards.
The Board has also decided to use advanced data analytics to detect cases or centres where unfair means are being used while examination.
The Board conducted a pilot analysis in the month of January 2021 CTET examination with the help of Central Square Foundation (CSF) and Play-power Labs to develop methods to identify suspicious data patterns at the centre. Based on the outcome from the analysis the Board has decided to use the same method to administer other examinations as well.
The Board intends to use advanced data analytics to detect, respond and prevent the irregularity in the academics across all major exams conducted by the Board. On the basis of such analysis, CBSE has aimed to identify examination centres where the data indicates the existence of malpractices during the conduct of examinations. Accordingly, this will be used to strengthen the reliability of National Achievement Survey (NAS), Central Teachers Eligibility Test (CTET) and Board examinations conducted by CBSE.
