LoveMyTest aims at bringing affordable technology innovation to every school in India. Educational Technology is still not accessible to a large number of schools in India. That is due to a variety of factors like lack of knowledge about the advancements in the field, affordability of technical solutions and even mindset of educationists’ against adopting new technologies.
We would like to make a difference to the way schools are operating by bringing in the benefits of technology in an affordable way to most schools. We have started it by making the examination process easy for schools. Examination conduction is a repetitive process which can be easily automated. This will save a lot of time for teachers in making question papers, evaluating them and making different types of reports. If 80% of this process can be taken over by new techniques, teachers can focus their time more on development of every child entrusted to them.
Conducting examinations using technology has its own challenges. Computers can not just take over all exams. Schools have limited resources and computer labs generally have 25 to 30 computers, which is just not sufficient for conducting exams for a large number of students together. Every child having a handheld device like a tablet will happen in the near future but as of now it is a luxury for most schools. Keping this in mind, we have designed the easiest OMR based testing solution that can take care of these concerns of the schools. Schools which are resourceful can conduct tests using computers, tablets or even smartphones too using our solution.
Some people would say that technology based assessments take away the human factor of being sensitive to individual strengths of students. We too agree that this is a genuine concern and hence technology can not take away the problem all together. Teachers’ involvement is required for testing the speaking skills, writing skills and the methods deployed by students in solving problems. Subjective level assessment is required to evaluate such parameters. However if subjective testing can be reduced to 30% of the total evaluations, it will make the life lot easier for teachers. Scores from the subjective tests can be added to the technology based assessments and reports can be generated by the system.
