Exam standards in India need a relook, say experts


NEW DELHI. The Association of Tests Publishers (ATP), an international, non-profit organization representing providers of tests and assessment tools and services, held its fourth conference in New Delhi .

The conference was based on, 'Revamping Exam Standards in India: Improving Evaluation and Assessments of Higher Education and Professionals.'

Over 300 delegates from academia, universities, and HR attended the event.
Global experts deliberated important subjects relevant for changes in the examination space like incorporating Artificial Intelligence, Test Scoring Algorithms, Content Development, a holistic framework for improving Evaluation and Assessments, Improving Quality of Higher Education.

The forum shared global best practices in the assessment space by addressing topics such as exam security, candidate convenience & flexibility, and different methods of testing. This year's conference is being hosted by I-ATP in academic partnership with ACT.
The event was oriented on scientific techniques, best practices and new technologies for use in higher education assessment and the workplace.

The key objectives of this event were to gather educational leaders together with human resource professionals, under one roof to establish an ongoing dialogue for raising assessment standards by embracing world-class best practices and exploring new technologies.
There is an urgent need to revamp the exam structure in India. The assessment system must be re-invented, re-designed, re-positioned to ensure high-quality internal assessment," remarked William G. Harris, ATP CEO.

"We are focusing on leveraging technology, artificial intelligence on learning platforms and use of data analytics to make it more personalized for every student," he added, as he opened the fourth annual conference of the Indian Regional Association of Test Publishers (I-ATP), 2018.
