The Gujarat Secondary and Higher Secondary Education Board (GSHSEB) will hold the training sessions for the teachers in which the board will train the teachers on how to evaluate the answer sheets. For this purpose, the board has also prepared a presentation of “common errors” and “model rules”.
For the training purpose the evaluators will be called for one day training in batches. The training is scheduled to be conducted this month at the GSHSEB headquarters in Gandhinagar.
It was reported by the Indian Express on August 24 that nearly 8000 teachers committed mistakes while evaluating the answer sheets and most of the errors were related to summation of marks.
The decision to conduct a training session was taken by the board after series of meetings and the board has also been receiving the complaints from parents and students about the discrepancies in evaluation.
“The need of such training was realized as the representations were increasing over time. This came as a solution after meetings of the examination committees and consultation with the subject experts. The teachers will be shown the common errors made while checking answers, and the manner in which an answer sheet should be evaluated,” said GSHSEB chairman A J Shah.
