The first step of an intelligent grading solution is to scan all test papers or answer sheets including the objective and subjective and convert them into images. Then teachers mark papers online - the system automatically calculates and adds scores for objective questions, while subjective ones will be evaluated online, keeping the original papers clean. Furthermore, big data analysis based on test results could help educators provide personalized teaching for students, reshaping the traditional teaching model.
Since the national strategic collaboration in 2015, iFLYTEK and Kodak Alaris have nationwide provided intelligent grading solution for educators and students, benefiting more schools to build a smart campus.
The image acquisition of test papers requires a high standard for scanners. Due to unstandardized test papers, the scanning faces challenges of different weights, sizes and qualities of test papers in practice. Kodak Alaris customizes feeder to improve feeding efficiency tremendously.
Kodak i3000 series utilize the following scanning technologies for higher efficiency:
High-quality image acquisition supports smart assessment, such as optical character recognition (OCR), natural-language understanding, etc. Kodak i3000 series with Alaris Perfect Page technology optimizes image quality and intelligently manages a host of image processing tasks. It all happens automatically, with every scan. Sharper images make additional processing functions more accurate.
For example, it's challenging for smart assessment to mark essays, translation, short answers and fill in the blanks test answer. With the Kodak i3000 series, iFLYTEK intelligent grading solution can easily recognize blank answer sheets and tell if the answer is highly repetitive to others with higher accuracy.
Besides high-quality image acquisition, iFLYTEK intelligent grading solution relies on tailored driver software, which is the essential way to connect Kodak Alaris's hardware and iFLYTEK's software. In terms of the image processing, modular customization plays a vital role in parameter settings, which requires multiple times of software development. Thus, excellent after-sales services are key to tailored drivers.
