IBCC and RMS on 21st January 2022, signed an MoU that will facilitate IBCC in making available RM’s state-of-the-art solutions, “rTestGen” – Digital Item Development, Item Bank, Paper Generation software as well as “rMarker” – The online-onscreen electronic marking of descriptive student responses, for pilot testing and explore opportunities for digitalization of assessment lifecycle and adoption of latest technologies including hardware as well as software. This will play a pivotal role in order to redefine the examination system and assessment lifecycle across all provinces and regions.

By adopting these assessment solutions in all designated/ participating external examination bodies, students will witness a massive improvement in how their examination papers are developed, marked, and results are compiled with accuracy and timeliness. Whereas, IBCC will work in tandem with the examination bodies to develop assessments based on the criterion defined in the national curriculum such as benchmarks, standards, student learning outcomes, etc. Furthermore, through the online-onscreen marking of students’ answer scripts and rubric-based marking, IBCC will make the much-needed move towards standardization of assessments.

IBCC is striving hard to accomplish the vision of “Digital Pakistan” of present government under the leadership of Honourable Federal Minister for Education and Professional Training Mr. Shafqat Mahmood. This facilitation in digitization of all BISEs of Pakistan is another milestone achieved in this direction.

This MoU will ensure taking the right steps towards the achievement of not just national but also international commitments with reference to Sustainable Development Goals, that Pakistan has ratified and is a signatory of.
