CBSE: Evaluation Process
Examination is a term that enables every student/participant feel nervous and excited both at the same time; especially when it comes to appear in board examinations. Striving for better marks in respective classes of Board Examinations has always been a part of students’ efforts.
In this category, we are going to demonstrate the Evaluation process that is usually adopted by CBSE for 10th & 12th classes respectively. Central board of secondary education (CBSE), one of the most reputed Board in India better known for its quality education system. With the great educational curriculum, CBSE also provide the opportunities in syllabus for activities that brings a great chance for the students to explore themselves in the outer world.
If we think that CBSE’s evaluation process is too strict to give marks away, then let us quote you an example where a P.E. (Physical Education) student who was able to score 100 out of 100 in Physical education, despite the fact that he never even attempted all the questions. In another case study, at one point in economics paper, when the paper appeared in the board exams, the subject teacher was very upset as few questions were out of syllabus and she informed the principal that their students will not be able to score 95+ in the final result; however, something happened that surprised everyone there. Few such students scored 95+ that year from that school. Thus, we can conclude that there is also a game of luck sometimes, during the evaluation process.
How CBSE evolution process Works
Let us tell you more about the evaluation process by telling the methods involve in this process. Have you ever thought what happens with your answer sheet when you leave the exam? If your answer is yes then follow me.
There are two types of methods involve in the evaluation process of CBSE
This is the evaluation process introduced by CBSE in the year 2014, in this process a scanned copy of your answer sheet is uploaded on a server and then sent to a particular checker in a particular checking centre. IN this method there is no need to move your answer sheet from one place to another place.
Every evaluator is assigned a unique ID, on the basis of which the answer sheets are allotted to them and then after the evaluation the evaluator confirm that he/she has checked all the answers.
This process confirm that all the answers are checked but the process is not everywhere and is time consuming as the evaluator has to be very well versed with computer thus a single evaluator is not able to evaluate more than 20 sheets in a single day.
This is the traditional method of answer sheet evaluation and I am quite sure you are little bit aware of this method. All the answer sheet are collected from different examination centres into your cbse regional office and then regional office forward answer sheet to its nodal centre and then nodal centre distribute these answer sheets to checking centre.
Every checking centre normally have 10-12 evaluators from different schools. Every evaluator in then assigned 25-30 answer sheets at a time to evaluate but as per my experience a single evaluator normally check 40+ answer sheet in a single day.
Just imagine when a single evaluator check 40+ answer sheet in a span of 6 hours, how much time he/she is giving to each answer sheet. Now you’d have a basic idea about evaluation process in class 12th CBSE examination.
