How does Enem Digital work?
Enem Digital is the new method of application of the National High School Exam. The version of the test for computers was announced by the Ministry of Education in 2019 and will be applied for the first time this year, in a pilot model. According to MEC, the implementation of the new Enem will be progressive, and the expectation that by 2026 the exam will be 100% online.
100 thousand registrations will be made available to the first participants who opt for the digital edition. The structure of the exam will be the same as the printed version: candidates must go to the test site to take four objective tests, with 45 questions each, plus the essay. This, however, will be applied on paper. The proof of foreign language is also maintained at Enem Digital, and the student must choose English or Spanish at the time of registration.
According to MEC, the new application method saves money by reducing paper printing and represents a gain for the environment. In 2019 alone, there were more than 10.2 million printed proofs for Enem. The application costs exceeded R $ 500 million.
From a technical point of view, Enem Digital will allow the application of new types of questions. It will be possible to work with videos, infographics and even incorporate the logic of games to the test. "The aim of the project is not simply to take a test on a computer, but to leave the analogue world and move to the digital world of application of tests", explained the president of Inep, Alexandre Lopes, when announcing the news.
