Digital evaluation in Inter Exams!!
The meeting was held at the Telangana Inter-Board office on February 4. Raghavendra Rao, School Education Commissioner K. Suresh Kumar and others participated. The meeting discussed the precautions to be taken without any errors in the evaluation mainly in the inter examinations. Evaluation will be strictly conducted and action will be taken transparently. It was decided to adopt the digital approach as hundreds of faculty members were brought to the evaluation centers at other times as well as in catastrophic situations like Corona and had difficulty in editing the answer sheets.
Students' answer sheets are digitized and submitted to the lecturers of the respective subjects through special logins. Faculty will evaluate them and send them back to the board via the same login. The board will announce the results taking into account the respective marks. At the meeting it was decided to implement this only for the first year of Inter at present. After reviewing, an appropriate decision will be made to apply for two years.
Two junior colleges in each zone
The meeting discussed the setting up of two junior colleges in each zone as per the directions of Chief Minister YS Jagan Mohan Reddy. One of these will be a co-educational college and the other will be set up exclusively for girls. It was also mentioned that dropouts were more common among girls after Tenth class. One reason was the lack of access to colleges for girls, and another was the lack of infrastructure such as toilets. In this context, the Board has approved Rs. 40 crore for the construction and repair of toilets in government junior colleges, especially for girls, for the creation of infrastructure in all junior colleges.
Minister Suresh said the government has embarked on a number of reforms besides raising educational standards. He said the Inter-Board would extend full cooperation to strengthen the public education system by preventing the monopoly of private college owners. He said proposals were being made to set up 200 new junior colleges.
