Mindlogicx Receives Deal from Saurashtra University to Manage, Secure Examinations with IntelliEXAMS
By Daniel Brecht, Contributing Writer
Mindlogicx is a research and development (R&D) company founded in 2002 with a strong focus on innovation. Its innovative technology and enabled knowledge assessment platform (KAP), for example, offers end-to-end solutions for e-businesses, e-government and e-learning.
Many of its solutions have proved valuable for data processing, digital content management and online delivery.
This is a company that specializes in developing products on various technology platforms to provide hosted and shared services for clients in the corporate and business sectors, in retail or education. For the latter, the company’s framework for e-learning – more specifically tele-education, which provides instruction over the Internet for virtual learning environments – functions to offer a delivery system for academic institutions on demand, in real time.
Knowing that the Bangalore-based Mindlogicx offers an entire suite of technology products and services for providers of education technology services and is capable of education enterprise resource planning (ERP), the company bagged a deal – a six-year contract, worth Rs 72 crore (Indian Rupees), equaling $1.35 – with Saurashtra University to develop an automated solution to help them avoid question paper leakage of examination results.
The solution for Saurashtra University will be Mindlogicx’s intelliEXAMS software, an intelligent integrated system, hence its name, which adds intelligence to exams and aids in the examination process.
It will be used to provide automation management and academic solutions for examination testing for true or false, fill-in-the-blank and multiple choice questions.
Mindlogicx’s intelliEXAMS suite “will enable the university to do digital valuation of hand written answer scripts to avoid scams during evaluation,” according to a recent statement, and will help solve the problems of examination-related malpractices.
Many institutions of higher education, other than Saurashtra University, have called upon Mindlogicx’s services and software to ensure secure question paper exam delivery. Mindlogicx’s intelliEXAMS suite has been used to ensure exams are delivered securely to remote centers and will remain fool-proof, whereas its IntelliCAS suite has been used to ensure tamper-proof certificates.
Mindlogicx’s suites make use of two technologies: authentication and encryption. This provides peace of mind for the many colleges affiliated with Saurashtra University to know the virtual university framework is secure.
A similar technology used throughout the United States for delivering a fully online secure testing environment and student authentication for online exams is Securexam Remote Proctor by Software Secure. Like Mindlogicx’s intelliEXAMS suite, it offers secure examination automation services, exam integrity and cheat-proof exam-taking solutions on classroom terminals, and is capable of providing digital proctoring solutions for remote student testing.
Both Software Secure’s Securexam Remote Proctor and Mindlogicx’s intelliEXAMS suite have been utilized by schools for secure examination testing. This not only shows the importance of secure testing, but reveals how two company’s software have automated the entire examination processes with proven, patented solutions for traditional and distance learning environments.
