The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) earlier announced the policy for tabulation of marks for class 10 board exams result 2021. As per it, In order to prepare the class 10th exam result, the board will set a result committee in each school. Also, the result policy will be formed on 4 key principles, which are reliability, fairness, flexibility, and validity. However, the bigger question is, how will CBSE form result committee by May 05, 2021, amidst the pandemic?
Well, to do so, each CBSE affiliates school will form a result committee. The committee will consist of the principal and seven teachers. Among these teachers, 5 teachers will be subject expert in Mathematics, Social Science, Science and two languages. The remaining two teachers shall be appointed from neighbouring schools, who should be co-opted by the school as the external members of the committee.
The central board will pay honorarium of Rs. 2500 per person to the external teachers. Apart from this, all the internal committee members will be paid honorarium of Rs. 1500. To make the process easier, CBSE will make available an online module for entering claims of honorarium.
This is how CBSE plans to formulate the result committee. The main focus of the school leaders and teachers will be to ensure that evaluation process is clearly understood by the stakeholders. For this purpose, the result committee will have to document the evidence towards student’s performance in the internal assessment / tests in a secure manner. These documents may be called upon for subsequent verification.
Apart from this, the board will also prepare an online system in which the schools need to enter the marks, and check the marks allocated are in conformity with the rules decided by CBSE.
CBSE Examination Controller Sanyam Bhardwaj said, “the schools will form eight-member result committees by May 5. The provision for school-wise distribution of marks as well as the finalization of the rationale document will happen by May 10. For candidates who have not appeared in enough tests through the year, the schools will conduct an online or telephonic assessment for them by May 15 and will have to finalize the result by May 25”
Mr. Bhardwaj further added that the marks will have to be submitted to the CBSE by June 11 and the result will be declared by June 20.
