The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) has issued new directions to schools to bring in external assessors, with the term 1 examination already underway since earlier this month. This practically indicates that the term 1 board exams will not be completely internally reviewed.
Term 1 board examinations for topics offered in fewer schools are currently being conducted by the board and its connected schools. Exams for major topics, or subjects that are taught in practically every school, will begin next month.
Even though the board established the question papers, evaluation was to be an internal process carried out by teachers at the test centre school, according to previous guidelines. “During evaluation, OMRs should be interchanged between the assessors of two schools,” the CBSE now says. Evaluators from other schools will check a school’s OMRs and vice versa.”
However, it has been mandated that at least one instructor from the school where the tests are held be included in the assessment. The coordinators, who could be from the centre school or others, are also required to recheck 20% of the OMRs.
