In one of its kind e-initiative endeavours, the Rajasthan Public Service Commission (RPSC) has launched MEMORY-My Exam My Online Review, which enables students take a review of the exams they appear at from the comfort of their homes, writes Akhilesh Mittal
In order to safeguard the interests of the citizens of the State, the main objective of every recruitment authority of the government is to adopt transparency for each and every process at each level. The Rajasthan Public Service Commission (RPSC) has been taking e-initiatives since 2011 and regularly upgrading itself with latest technology and innovations, so that demands for services and solutions can be made available to all, with transparency.
Unlike in online exams, candidate of offline examinations have the advantage to take home the question paper and carbon copy of OMR sheet. In online exams, candidates feel lack of transparency as neither question paper nor OMR copy is in their hands, leaving them with lots of questions and doubts. For example, candidates could have doubts, like why negative marking was done when they didn’t even attempt those specific questions, or some questions were out of syllabus, etc.
For the last few years, RPSC had been trying to find some innovative solutions for such problems for online examination, so that candidates can see the answers they give. Finally, the Commission has come up with a system, developed by an Associate Online Examination Consultant that takes care of the candidates’ concerns.
MEMORY — My Exam My Online Review — software has been designed and developed in such a manner that after completion of online examinations, candidates can view start-to-end automatic action replay of their examinations on the RPSC website.
The software runs on windows platforms, with the size of software being less than 150 kb only in unzipped form. In addition to that, this software has ensured highest security and 24×7 availability across geographies. The Commission has kept simultaneous login limits for three candidates. They can log in with the allotted roll numbers and OTP as a password, which would be received on the candidate’s registered mobile number.
The MEMORY will take candidates through all actions and activities executed by them during the examination period and the time spent on the examination screen. With this innovative move, RPSC has taken online examinations to the next level.
