From Our Correspondent

LUDHIANA, Sept 29 — With an aim to bring uniformity in evaluation of answer sheets of the CBSE examination, a day-long training workshop for examiners of English core and economics for class XII was held at BCM Arya Model School here today.

Over 40 teachers of English and 20 of economics from various CBSE schools of Ludhiana, Jalandhar, Kapurthala, Mandi Gobindgarh and Khanna turned up for their two separate workshops. During the workshops, teachers were told to write answers to some questions and mark their own answer sheets according to the evaluation scheme. The answer sheets were then exchanged amongst the teachers and re-checked by some other teacher. After this the variations in checking were noted and discussed.

“The teachers will also be given same examination sample answer scripts for checking. The variations in evaluation of the sheets by the teachers will be spotted and important points will be discussed. Suggestions from the teachers for bringing in more uniformity in checking will also be sought,” informed Mrs Sarita Manuja, Principal, DAV Public School, Chandigarh, who was one of the resource persons for the workshop on English core.

“This is for the first time that such experimental training is being given to the examiners. The main objective of the workshops is to eliminate all sorts of variations in marking so that no student is affected,” said Mr Yog Raj Sachdeva, Regional Officer, CBSE, Chandigarh.

“Two such workshops have been already held at Chandigarh and one at Karnal and 24 such workshop will be held at 27 centres scattered in Jammu and Kashmir, Haryana, Punjab, Himachal Pradesh and Chandigarh. There will be similar workshops on evaluation of answer sheets of Maths and accountancy for class XII and social studies for class X because major variations have been noted in these examination,” he further said.

The other resource persons were Professor S.K. Aggarwal, Reader, Rajdhani College, New Delhi, Principal Pargai also from Delhi; and Mrs Puri, Principal, DAV Public School, Amritsar.
