Being a leader in the EdTech world, the client wanted an automated proctoring software providing both an online and offline proctoring. The scanned answer sheets by students need to be monitored and analyzed through AI and ML so as to make sure that no cheating has occurred during the assessment. The software developed should also have the facility for Image and Hand writing recognition to ease the evaluation of assessments.
Csharptek developed the custom automatic proctoring software known as Markezy for the client which helped to flag any suspicious activity or behavior during the exam. The custom software helped to provide already created exams, create new exams, list several questions, and so on. The software was not only for the online exams but also for the offline and pen-paper assessments. In the offline mode, the students are provided with question papers, they need to give exams on the exam centers, then the answer sheets are scanned by the software, and the results are evaluated according to the Image and Handwriting Recognition.
Csharptek has developed Markzey in such a way that after uploading answer sheets in the Azure Storage, image and handwriting recognition takes place. This is done by incorporating Azure Cognitive Services in the software. The handwritten text from the scanned answer sheet images is extracted using the Optical Character Recognition(OCR) technology of Microsoft Azure. The text extracted is then graded digitally according to the answer keys provided to the teachers during evaluation. The grades are then returned to the students enriched with feedback. This feature has massively reduced the labor cost and processing time.
Csharptek has enabled Markzey with online proctoring which prevents digital cheating through online assessments. Cheating can be prevented by not allowing the students to copy-paste answers from the internet, accessing any other website to find the answers, preventing them to switch tabs, or opening a new window, and so on. At the higher level, the browser is locked until the exam is submitted or time is over. Using Azure recognition API proctoring includes facial detection, mobile detection, audio detection, or any other cheating instrument detection.
Not only proctoring but Markzey is also embedded with Artificial Intelligence to measure the stress level and emotions of the student through the image captured while taking assessments. Using Face API of Azure provides several AI algorithms to detect, recognize and analyze human face in an image.
Markzy was developed by Csharptek which offered an effective way to create, manage and deploy assessments in both online and offline manner. It consists of more than 94,000 standard-based assessments that allow educators to quickly measure student performance. The benefits are for several types of people, admin, teachers, and students to provide flexible standards-based formative assessment items. The app was developed using .Net MVC 5 architecture, scanning of offline answers using Image and Handwriting recognition, evaluation of results through grading, and a variety of analytics features using Azure cognitive services.
Markezy now completely fulfills the requirement of a school or college management by providing great tests as well as for the students who can view their reports quickly. Csharptek worked on every challenge of the client and delivered a flawless product on time. Creating, Grading, and Analyzing assessments are now made easy with Markezy.
