What is Ebeeps
The worldly accepted core and basic purpose of education is to bring people to as full a realization as possible of what it is to be a “Human Being”. Presently, almost all main stream systems of education are endeavoring at their full capacity to achieve this true purpose of education by using various viable strategies, tactics, tools and techniques. Beside others, the examination system being used by various education systems are the most essential tool used to gauge students’ ultimate realization of the stated purpose. The students of these education systems also prepare themselves accordingly to display their knowledge, understanding and application ability acquired during the learning and exam preparation process. At present, when the universe has turned into a global village, only the fittest person with respect to his/her learning achievements displayed in terms of exam results can enter and survive due to stiff competitions in every field of profession life.
Most of the students, though work very hard in their learning and exam preparation process, yet remain much below in standard of results achievements during their board or competitive exams. The main reason of this is the wrong exam preparation strategy, approach and techniques used by students being ignorant to the exam methodology adopted by various examination boards and other evaluation authorities.
At present, almost all examination boards of Pakistan, prepare their papers in such way that each question has a specific purpose of students’ evaluation to gauge various “Cognitive Domains” of their learning. These Cognitive Domains may include but not limited to their knowledge, understanding, application ability or alike. The federal board at present have openly declared to include about 20 %, 50 % and 30 % questions to gauge the Cognitive Domains of knowledge, understanding and application ability respectively which may change from time to time. However, the remaining boards also follow alike policies about the percentage of questions for various Cognitive Domains. But most of the students are unaware about such combination of questions based on Cognitive Domains in the board exams. Even if aware, they don’t prepare themselves accordingly. Most of them know each and every thing written in their books but still are unable to fetch good marks in the exam. That’s due to the reason that neither they themselves prepare, nor are asked by most of the academies to prepare on these lines in true letter and spirit.
Ebeeps is first ever such education and exam preparation system which guides the students in the right direction with a focused approach which ultimately enable all students using this system to achieve desired results in any type of exams. It provides guidelines to students on each question which guide the students
The purpose of the questions; that, which Cognitive Domains was aimed to be checked through each question.
The students’ performance level including obtained marks during the paper.
Mistakes committed in the paper and guidelines for the students to improve their performance in that question.
Most importantly the system provides detail analysis on already attempted papers from a particular chapter or throughout the book, which provide following information/analytics
Analytics base on Cognitive Domains; the percentage of marks attained in each Cognitive Domains linking these analytics to type of questions in each domain.
Analytics base on strongest and weakest areas with respect to Cognitive Domains; the percentage of marks attained in each strong or weak areas of Cognitive Domains linking these analytics to questions in which the students have shown their either strongest or weakest results in each domain.
Analytics based on “Content Categories”; the percentage of marks attained in each content category, like Definitions, Laws, Factors, theories, methods, characteristics and all other possible content categories available in any book, linking these analytics to type questions in each category.
Analytics based on strongest and weakest areas with respect to “Content Categories”; the percentage of marks attained in each strongest or weakest areas with respect to content category, linking these analytics to list of questions in which students have shown either strongest or weakest performance in each content category.
Finally, the list of mistakes committed in the papers with their frequency making the students to improve upon and not to commit these mistakes in coming papers/board exams.
These all analytics provide an in-depth information to a students and his/her parents by pinpointing the weak areas of their studies so the students can divert their major efforts to improve upon and ultimately be able to fetch highest marks in the board/competitive exams.
Likewise, the teachers/subject specialist are also provided with such analytics to enable them to see that which are the areas in which most of the students are weak and need main focus of their efforts. It enables the teacher/subject specialist to priorities their teaching time so as to devote their maximum time to areas in which most of the students are weak and need special attention.
