Successful delivery of a MCQ system to another region in Ethiopia

Summer 2018 saw the successful delivery of a MCQ system, to another region in Ethiopia.  DRS has been working with the Oromia Education Bureau to customise the MCQ product to process their Grade 8 exams.

DRS supplied printed registration forms, admission cards, answer sheets and certificates as well as the software and on site training. During the processing period the software team provided remote support via a direct internet connection to the system.

Registration began in May with a total of 443,121 candidates registered. Each student takes a number of exams, so the number of answer sheets scanned reached an impressive  2,124,607. Each student received a certificate showing their results per subject.

The Oromia Education Bureau is delighted with the system, Mr Tariku Yohannes Diga stated

"I was pleased to work with a dedicated team like DRS. Helpful, fast and responsive in solving problems. The exam marking software that DRS provided was powerful and reliable. One of the strongest features was that it never allowed any mistakes".
