Post-exam, the venues gather the papers and simply feed them into a high-speed paper scanner using our simple-to-use eScan client. As they go through the scanner, eScan reads page objects, such as tracking barcodes, brightness/contrast indicators and the page structure to identify the page type, the candidate and to validate that the image is of a suitable quality.
This real-time reconciliation and image validation is crucial; by using eScan, it ensures that by the time the markers see the images they are of a consistent quality and ready-linked to candidates. If a scanned image fails to meet the expected image quality, the centre will be alerted that a re-scan is necessary while the page is immediately to hand, still in the scanner.
Once the scripts are captured and reconciled, they can be presented as zonal images in eMark, which facilitates on-screen general marking for short and long text responses by human examiners.
At ePC, we understand that every organisation is different, every assessment is tailored and each candidate is unique. There is no one-size fits all solution, so we can draw upon the components within the CPS platform to design and build a bespoke process that suits your organisation.
As part of our assessment solution, ePC can design exam papers incorporating fields, tick boxes, logos and graphics.
Candidate scripts are scanned and converted into digital files using eScan which provides users with scanning, reconciliation, error rectification and transmission of images for onward processing
