About the data base: This data base will be used for the allotment of teachers for all board related works of Class 10 and Class 12 Board exams 2013. It is a computerized record of teachers across state with the details of all work being carried out by them for the Goa Board starting from the paper setting till the results are out.
It comprises of around 3,300 teachers from Class 9 & 10and 1700 teachers of higher secondary schools. About 900 of the Class 9 and 10 teachers and 1900 of the class 12 teachers from the 365 High Schools and 85 Higher Secondary schools of state are participating in the board tasks.
The Goa Board Chairperson Jose Remedios Rebello said "Each of the teachers has been given a number in the database and a search of a number opens a detailed record of the work for the board done by the teacher so far. When creating the database, we have sought records from the schools of work carried out for the board by the teachers. From next year onwards, the Goa Board will update the information of the teachers as and when they work for the board,"
"Until now, only teachers who have completed some ten years of experience were being involved in the paper correction work. But we plan to pull in the younger workforce of teachers with good track records even if they have completed just five years in the profession. In this manner, we will be able to create a larger work force faster," Rebello said.
However, the changes are already helping to expedite the work of paper corrections of the 2013 board exams, he added.
