Bangalore l 23 Feb, 2021: Mercer l Mettl, an online assessment company, has launched its web-based examination platform as an all-in-one, integrated solution to digitize academic exams. As physical examinations pose multiple challenges at each step of the process for academic institutions, administrators and students, Mercer l Mettl, using new-age digital tools, has made online exams a reality in the easiest and efficient manner.
As schools, colleges, and other educational institutions continue to remain shut, and e-learning gains momentum with deeper penetration of the internet in the remotest areas, the need for a safe and secure way to conduct exams online has grown tremendously. Mercer l Mettl’s online examination management system offers an end-to-end solution to address this growing need.
Mercer | Mettl’s solution caters to the entire examination cycle, enabling faculty and administrators to create question papers, schedule exams, invigilate using a mix of AI and human-led proctoring, assign answer scripts to evaluators and reviewers, and finally declare the results. The digital solution does all this without compromising students’ exam-taking experience. With these solutions, the system eliminates the challenges of centre-based physical examinations, such as logistical hassles and monetary overheads, managing large-scale invigilation, physical answer sheet evaluation and real-time tracking of the evaluation process.
On the development, Siddhartha Gupta, CEO, Mercer | Mettl said, “We are ecstatic to launch the holistic online exam platform that will shape the future of education in India.
