Secured Question Paper Delivery System (QPDS)
Every academic follows conventional procedures in the conduct of examinations. The processes include sourcing, selecting, setting, printing, and distributing the question papers to various examination centers spread miles across. The challenge in this process involves human intervention, thereby making it prone to insecurity of activities at different stages.
Our Secured Question Paper Delivery System (QPDS) overcomes these challenges. The solution is rugged & secured and based on the latest ICT & digital technologies. The solution follows a well-defined workflow methodologies with a granular access controls, encryption, leakage monitoring and with real-time tracking of the entire QPDS processes. Further our solution follows multi-layer security algorithms, controlled through a centralized dashboard available on an exclusive web portal, with a complete transparency of the process and its activities.
Major Advantages is the system provides a complete transparency and tracking at each stage; No wastage of paper; Reuse of infrastructure for other examinations; and, Scope for add-on and refinements.
Secured Question Paper Delivery System (QPDS) aims at:
- Hassle free electronic distribution of question papers in a secured manner to examination venues regardless of location.
- Largely avoids manual intervention.
- Bringing a transformation in the examination process.
About Proposed System
- Adopts latest technology, and strictly follows customizable Work Flow Methodologies.
- Highly secured environment – (adopts encryption & decryption technologies & its processes)
- Access to the entire system is restricted through static IP validation
- Protected for management only by the authorized officials Examination centers
- Tamper proof and supposedly tackles the menace of question paper leakage.
- Various MIS Reports at every level of users.
How Secured the Proposed System
