Title: Knowledge and Awareness Mapping Platform (KAMP)
KAMP website: http://kamp.nistads.res.in/
Scope: With the growing complexity of the knowledge system, and an information doubling time of now less than two years, a regular, objective and preferably quantitative assessment of awareness and the levels of knowledge on various subjects is a critical need, not only for students but also for teachers and parents. A platform that allows easy and objective assessment of skill would fill a critical gap.
Based on the algorithm and design developed at NISTADS, the Knowledge and Awareness Mapping Platform (KAMP) is proposed as an enabling platform to provide easy, objective, measurable and unbiased assessment of awareness and knowledge levels on various basic topics, with focus on science and technology through an Interactive User Interface.
