Bhubaneswar: The memories of the woes of students due to faulty evaluation are still fresh but the recent announcement of the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) that the Board will act tough on marking errors has brought a sigh of relief among students.
Faulty evaluations not only disappoints students but also mars their future... Taking cognizance of this, the Board has reportedly warned evaluators that they could be expelled for their carelessness during the evaluation process.
“Our aim is to make the evaluation process error-free. We have engaged the best and most experienced teachers for evaluation and issued fresh guidelines apart from conducting several rounds of training to eliminate common mistakes done by teachers. Besides, there will be CCTV surveillance in evaluation centres,” Times of India quoted CBSE secretary, Anurag Tripathi as saying.
He further said that the evaluators, apart from the given guideline for evaluating the answer sheets, have been given the liberty to give marks for creative and innovative answers.
"We welcome the tough stance of CBSE towards evaluation of papers as it adversely affect the life of students. All hard works and future of a student shouldn't be ruined because of someone's callous attitude," said a parent.
CBSE recently released the date sheets for Class 10 and Class 12 board exams. The CBSE Class 10 board exam 2019 will begin on February 21 and go on till March 29 while the Class 12 board exam will begin in March.
