The Rajasthan School Education Department has set a world record by assessing over 1.35cr OCR sheets with AI in a state-level mass drive. The department’s ‘Rajasthan Ke Shiksha Main Badhte Kadam’ (RKSMBK) application assessed the sheets belonging to students of classes 3 to 8. The AI assessment record has made a place in the World Book of Records, London.
Baluki Das Kalla, Primary and Secondary Education Minister, wrote in a social media post that Aditi Tank and Pratham Bhalla, World Book of Records representatives, presented the certificate to the department.
The RKSMBK application is a part of the ‘Steps in Education of Rajasthan’ program. The government of Rajasthan is working to develop infrastructure in the education sector for primary, secondary, and higher educational institutions.
The initiatives are focused on enhancing the employability quotient of the state by bridging the gap between education and industry requirements. This is one of many technology-driven programs undertaken by the state government. There are many other initiatives like the SMILE (Social Media Interface for Learning Engagement) program, Shikshadarshan (Educational content via TV), Kala Utsav summer camps, E-content invited via ShalaDarpan and many others.
