Frequently Asked Questions

Below are some common frequently asked questions.

Is Equate a skills assessment/certification or an online exam proctoring platform?

No, Equate is a technology solution that enables Learning Management Systems (LMSs)/ Skills assessment/ certification portals to secure its data and issue evidence-based tamper-proof certificates.

Can Equate be integrated with existing Exam portals/ Learning Management Systems?

Yes, Equate can be integrated with existing portals via one-time API integration which takes around 7-15 working days.

Does the National Education Policy (NEP) 2020 endorse the use of Blockchain technology in education processes?

Yes, Clause 23.2 of National Education Policy 2020 not only endorses but also advocates use of emerging disruptive technologies such as Blockchain to transform the education system. It further emphasizes "Our present education system's inability to cope with these rapid and disruptive changes places us individually and nationally at a perilous disadvantage in an increasingly competitive world."

Has any country/ university / stakeholder adopted Blockchain technology in skill assessment/ examinations?

Yes, The Russian Federal Service for Supervision in the Sphere of Education and Science, is implementing Blockchain technology in the Unified State Exam (USE), which is the only form of graduation examinations in schools and the main form of preliminary examinations in universities in Russia for bringing transparency in examinations.

Are there any research papers/ journals/ reports published on use of Blockchain technology/ DLT in skills assessment/examinations using blockchain?

Yes, there are multiple research reports on use of Blockchain/ DLT in education that talk about use of Blockchain in assessments. However, one research paper has been published in the International Journal of Engineering & Technology (IJET) by Christ University, Bangalore titled "Blockchain based examination system for effective evaluation and maintenance of examination records".

How does Equate prevent unethical practices by intermediaries /third-parties involved in the assessments/ examination process?

Equate uses Smart Contracts to monitor & control examination processes which are immutable and self-executing. This eliminates the possibilities of tampering of data stored on central databases centrally controlled by assessment service providers and gives exam governing bodies absolute control over the examination process.

Can implementation of Blockchain in skills assessments/ examinations improve employability of a candidate / student?

Having a pre-verified candidature data/records on Blockchain can make a candidate stand-out from the crowd and also save employers/corporates a huge amount of time and cost incurred on background verification and therefore improve the chances of a candidate getting employment.

Does Equate use a public or a Private blockchain?

Equate is currently deployed on Ethereum Public Blockchain but is Blockchain agnostic meaning it is compatible with other public and private Blockchains.

What is meant by evidence based certificates?

Evidence-based certificates are digital certificates that are cryptographically linked to the processes executed before issuance of certificates such as identity verification, candidate registration, attendance, course completion, tests, results, transcripts, etc. Moreover, it also provides data analysis to provide valuable insights about candidate skills.

What are the benefits of evidence based certificates over certificates issued manually on blockchain?

Certificates that are issued manually are prone to errors and data manipulations since it involves human intervention and discretion whereas, evidence-based certificates are issued via Smart Contracts only on successful compliance of processes required to issue the certificate.

Can implementation of Blockchain tech in high stake competitive examinations help prevent impersonation during examination?

Yes, Impersonation in high stake competitive examinations is a huge problem and there have been numerous reports that suggest that candidate data manipulation in the database and tampering of admit cards is two of the most common malpractice. By integrating Blockchain based identities for examinations, the challenge of candidate impersonation can be addressed.

Can recruiters verify credentials and skills of a candidate from the Equate platform?

Yes, recruiters can verify the candidate's credentials issued by the academic institution from Equate platform.

Can Equate detect if a candidate is using unfair means / cheating during the examination?

Equate secures & monitors candidate responses in real-time and thus can alert the exam governing body in case of unusual response time by using AI & ML algorithms. Equate focuses on detecting and preventing unethical practices by the assessment service providers & other intermediaries involved in the examination.

Can BrainChain also being a third-party service provider, modify/tamper data stored on Equate platform as it has access to the data?

It is not possible for even BrainChain to modify or tamper the data as it is stored on Blockchain directly using Smart Contracts which cannot be modified/altered once deployed.

Can Blockchain technology be implemented for offline examinations?

Yes, it can be implemented for offline examinations to control paper leaks and impersonation however, it will not be able to secure the end-to-end examination process.

Where is your company based?

Equate is based out from BVI.

Where can I find more information on the team?
