Due to the pandemic, the board exams had to be cancelled. Hence, CBSE has come up with the objective criteria for evaluation. As per it, every school will formulate a committee. The committee will consist of the principal and 7 teacher. Out of these 7 teacher, 5 teachers will be from schools and will be experts in Maths, Science, Social Science, and two languages. Rest of the 2 teachers will be from the neighbouring school.
As states above, there are 2 major factors based on which, the committee will determine CBSE 2021 result for class 10th. These factors are:
- Class 10th internal assessment – 20 marks
- Class 10th year-end board exams – 80 marks
The assessment of internals is already over and schools are working of evaluating marks for the year-end board exams. The assessment of 80 marks by the schools will be done as per:
a). marks secured by the students in different exams / test conducted by the school, during the year 2021.
b). marks must be in agreement with the past performance of the school in class X exams.
Throughout the year, schools have conducted various types of exams. All of these tests will be consider for preparing marks out of 80. The board categorisation of tests with the weigthage is as follows:
|Exam category||Maximum marks|
|Periodic test / Unit test||10 marks|
|Hal-yearly test / Mid-term exams||30 marks|
|Pre-boards examination||40 marks|
What will happen if schools have conducted more than one type of test?
If a school has conducted more than 1 type of test, within any of the categories above then the result committee may determined a weightage.
Example: If a school has conducted 3 pre board exams then the committee may decide to take an average of the 3 exams or take the best performance or give suitable weightage for all the paper. This will be decided by the committee later on.
What if the Pre-Board Exams Were Not Held or A Student did Not Appear for the Exam?
If the exam was not held, or it was held online / offline or some of the students did not appear for the exam, etc. then the schools need to report all of these cases to the CBSE 10th result committee. The committee will then study all of these challenges and will prepare a rational criteria. It will try and cover broad range of challenges so that a fair criteria can be formulated.
How Will be Assessment Standardisation Done?
Since the schools are determining result on their own, assessment standardisation guidelines have also been provide by CBSE. Assessment standardisation basically means to bring at same level. Not all the schools have conducted the same type of exam nor did they use the same question paper they how can CBSE evaluate all the students on the same scale? Hence, CBSE has decided to assessment standardisation of the schools.
For this, there 11 important factors of assessment standardisation:
1. CBSE has taken past 3 year data of the schools as measuring rod. Against this, the schools can give the result. Basically, this way, the schools cannot give too high or too low marks to the students because if the difference past 3 year data is too much then the provided result shall be questionable.
To understand this better – if the past 3 year record of the overall average of student’s performance for a particular school is 72% in 2017, 74% in 2018, and 71% in 2019 then the school will use the subject wise average of 2018 for moderation because it is highest. This selected year is reference for the school. For each subject, the school will have to follow a broad distribution of marks which will be based on the performance of the reference year by that school in that subject.
2. The subject-wise marks as assessed by the schools in the year 2021 should be in the rage of +/- 2 marks for the reference year. Moreover, the overall average marks for the school assessed in 2021 for all main five subjects should not exceed the overall average marks in the reference year.
3. In the next case, if the school only has data of two years, then the school can consider the best performance out of two years. In case of one year data, the same criteria is to be followed.
4. Marks obtained by the candidate of the school in the subject in the previous board examination is to be taken for internal moderation. This is to ensure that a reasonably fair, unbiased and reliable reference standard is followed.
5. In case, there are schools in which the students are appearing in Class X board examinations for the first time and there is no record available, then the best performance in terms of overall average score among the district, national, and state averages will be taken as reference. The board will provide details for district, national and state averages of last two years performance in the board exams to the schools.
6. The detailed distribution of marks as obtained by the candidate of the school will be made available by the board for the school at its login.
7. After the Result Committee finalizes the marks on the basis of exams/tests, it has to ensure that the marks must align as per the criteria released by the board.
8. To make it even more convenient for the schools to enter the marks of the student, the board has started an online system.
9. In case, the Result Committee is unable to fit the marks distribution, then it may decide to assign marks tot he students on the basis of student’s performance in class IX and or other periodic evaluation including project-based assessment.
10. Another reference of moderation will be the average marks for school in the board examination for the reference year, as explained above. For example – if the average marks obtained in subjects like Science and English is 70 and 82 in the reference year, then the average in Science assessed for the year 2021 should be in the range of 70 +/- 2, i.e. ranging from 68 to 72 marks, likewise for English subject. It is to be noted that though subject-wise variation is allowed while the average marks assessed for all 5 subjects together in 2021 should not exceed that of the reference year.
11. It is important that the schools should upload marks in consistent with the Board’s policy and directives. If the marks are not as per the Board’s policy, the schools will not be allowed to upload marks on the online portal.
