Any subjective answer can be scored for various sub-parameters which are then added to save the score for that question.

Universities have moved to scoring of their descriptive answer scripts to on-screen manual scoring. The era of sending answer book bundles to examiner homes and waiting for the results is gone. Then came the era of using OMR cover pages on the subjective answer scripts, which made it more reliable to post scores given by the examiners. But still the quality of evaluation was by far dependent on the examiner and was unquestionable. This his given way to the digital Valuation System where although the scripts are scored manually but the quality of scoring is enhanced due to proper facilitation and proper documentation.
The Answer scripts are slit and scanned at the examination center and the Addmen e-scoring system forms them back into collated PDFs making use of barcode or any other optical identifier. These PDFs are then used for on-screen manual scoring with multiple efficient features.
