On Monday, the Human Resources Development Ministry (HRD) mentioned that, the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) adopts "moderation policy" with regard to granting of marks for many reasons, including bringing uniformity in evaluation process.
A question on CBSE's policy regarding granting extra marks in Class XII Board Exam was put up during the session of Lok Sabha. In this matter, HRD Upendra Kushwaha said, "As far as CBSE is concerned, it adopts moderation policy to bring uniformity in evaluation process, to bring parity due to element of subjectivity in evaluation, to level up mean achievements due to difference in difficulty level of different set of question papers and to maintain parity of pass percentage of candidates across years and to compensate the candidates for difficulties experienced in solving the question in specified time. The state boards follow their own evaluation system and the Centre has no role in the process."
He was also questioned about the vacancies in Kendriya Vidayalaya. He responded, "As on July 1, 2016, 9,895 teaching posts, including that of principal and vice-principal, are lying vacant in Kendriya Vidyalayas."
As the moderation policy helps to bring parity due to element of subjectivity in evaluation CBSE has adopted this method. For more news across the nation, don't forget to halt at Brainbuxa for more.
