Data analyst claims CBSE marks inflated again | Radice-Edu Blog

exam_admit-card759

A data analyst has suggested that the CBSE may not have kept its promise of discontinuing the practice of inflating Class XII results. Prashant Bhattacharji, 33, an electrical engineer from IIT Kharagpur and working in Hyderabad, has plotted the results of about 25,000 students from over 300 schools in Gujarat and Rajasthan to indicate distortion.

In 2013, Bhattacharji had carried out a similar, widely reported analysis suggesting misuse of “moderation” by the CBSE and CISCE to inflate their respective students’ marks. He had mined results of 7 lakh Class XII CBSE students and plotted a distribution of marks that showed an abnormally large number of students scoring 95 per cent.

On Monday, a day after CBSE declared its Class XII results, Bhattacharji repeated the exercise with a smaller sample — 25,000 students of 139 schools in Gujarat and 170 in Rajasthan. He says the graphs (see chart below) for Physics, Chemistry, Mathematics and Economics show an abnormally large number of students scoring 95 per cent.

graph11

In the CBSE results declared Sunday, the number of students scoring 95 per cent or more increased by 740 since last year, while those scoring 90 to 95 per cent decreased from 63,387 to 63,247. Despite the drop in the latter bracket, Bhattacharji claims the CBSE may have still have resorted to what he calls “a mix of distortion and inflation”.

“We expect something roughly resembling a bell-shaped curve, even a skewed one will do. What we see is a distribution badly distorted into a near-uniform distribution with jagged edges and massive spikes at specific points. There is a mix of distortion and inflation,” he wrote to The Indian Express. “Last year, CBSE, by its own admission, had awarded as many as 16 extra marks to students in Mathematics. The fact that the number of students scoring 90 to 95 per cent has dropped could also mean that the Board might have awarded five to seven marks extra this year instead of 16. This way, the number of 90 to 95 percenters will show a decrease, but that doesn’t mean marks were not inflated,” he added.

CBSE did not respond to questions emailed by The Indian Express Monday. Chairman R K Chaturvedi did not respond to calls. In his sample, Bhattacharji found 1,142 out of 11,141 students in Mathematics, 429 out of 10,343 in Economics, 941 out of 13,973 in Physics and 1,231 out of 13,966 in Chemistry as having secured 95 per cent.

What if the sample of 25,000 just happens to be of students who have scored very well in Class XII exams this year? “The (graph) patterns are quite consistent with the flaws of past years which’d make it too big a coincidence for the flaws to be attributed to the characteristics of the specific cases which I downloaded,” he wrote.

CBSE Scraps Moderation Policy: Here’s What Students Should Know | Radice-Edu Blog

students_650x400_81492861630

Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) has stirred confusion among lakhs of students nationwide after the ‘scrapping off’ moderation policy news came. While the Board decided to take the plunge for bringing in clean marks; the news has added up to the agony of students, especially those awaiting the CBSE board exam results 2017. Students are expecting a dip in the percentage; since no grace marks will be given to students for difficult questions.

No Moderation Policy

This major decision for curbing the ‘more than a decade’ long practice had started from 2016. On December 2016, CBSE had requested MHRD to develop a consensus on completely removing the marks moderation policy which always led to inflation of marks in board exam results.  The call bringing an end to moderation became essential when board exam marks increased unnaturally. Students, who were affected by this, were those who had a tough examiner. It also hampered those who had a difficult set of question paper.

Subsequently, cut off scores for undergraduate course admission became abnormally high. One of the most concrete example in support of this is when during last few years, DU admission process saw 100% cut-offs in many subjects.

What should students know?

The CBSE board exam results will have a lesser percentage of 90 above scorers. But in sync, admission cut-offs will dip. Though ‘no moderation policy’ has been adopted by the Board, the grace marks will continue for cases where few marks are required to qualify.

The major concern is from those who are expecting the result this year. Students have taken the issue to Change.org filing a petition for changing the moderation policy from 2018, not 2017. …” the Central Board of Secondary Education has decided to not give any grace marks and do away with moderation in this year’s board examination results despite the lengthy Delhi region Mathematics, Physics and Accountancy papers” reads the petition.

Yes, other educational boards have agreed to let go off the grace marking practice. Students can relax as the overall cutoff for admission will go down.

Plea in high court against change in exam evaluation system | Radice-Edu Blog

A group of students of Sacred Heart School at Thevara, Cochin who will appear for Class X CBSE board examination next academic year, has filed a petition in the high court against the sudden change in the exam evaluation system.

According to the petition, the central board of secondary education (CBSE) must extend the existing continuous and comprehensive evaluation (CCE) for one more year as students who are going from Class IX to X will be unable to adapt to the sudden change in the evaluation system.

Earlier this year, the CBSE had issued a directive suggesting that starting from the next academic year, CCE mode of evaluation would be replaced with a new system.

“The new system for Class IX and X is that there will be one major annual examination, which will include the entire syllabus that is taught during the academic year. The annual exam will have an 80% weighting and the rest 20% will be taken from the internal evaluation. From the three internal evaluations, the best two performances will be chosen,” said Fr Antony M, principal of Sacred Heart School.

He said the decision to introduce the new system has come all of a sudden for students who will be entering Class X. The guardians are worried if the students will be able to cope with the sudden change.

“Parents were happy under the CCE evaluation system as students had time to focus on extra-curricular activities,” said Francis K A, general secretary of Kerala Sahodaya Complexes. Fr Antony said that changing the mode of evaluation has its positives as well.
“Students were finding it hard to cope with the syllabus in Class XI and XII, where they will have the entire syllabus for the annual exam in the previous academic years as well. So, when they were suddenly pushed into the new system they found it quite difficult. So, the new evaluation will reduce that pressure,” he said.
“But the introduction of the new system directly into Class X and that too for board exams has come all too soon for students who has been studying under the CCE system for many years,” he added.

CBSE class 10 board examinees of Dubai, United Arab Emirates have launched a petition at change.org for ‘Lenient correction for AISSE Math Paper Foreign Set 30/ 2/ (1,2,3,4)’.

As per Jamana Abdul Azeez (who has signed the petition), “as a student who wrote this exam set/3 I left the hall unsatisfied as the length and the difficultly level of the paper did not match the duration given.” Similar response has been given by another student from Ajman, UAE and he said “It was very difficult…And the level of questions was also high, to read and understand the question I took almost 10 mins and to complete a question more than that ….”

Apart from one or two questions from NCERT, the Foreign Set 3 comprised mainly of HOTS questions, is the reason mentioned for signing the petition.
The letter reads, “On behalf of my peers, I’d like to petition you to consider enforcing leniency with regards to the evaluation of AISSE Math (041) Paper Foreign Set 30/2/(1,2,3,4) conducted on 3rd April 2017.”

How technology is revolutionising education | Radice-Edu Blog

The world today is more connected than ever before with the internet and social media has become an intrinsic parts of our lives. The emergence of technology and its melding with our day-to-day functioning has brought with it an era of opportunities. One of the biggest beneficiaries of this trend are students.

With the academia putting on immense pressure on students, burdening them with board examinations and the rushing them to pick a career and score high, the internet comes as a huge boon. Students can now access and exploit the global reservoirs of information and tools for better learning, understanding, and experience.

This is the third age of connectivity which has even allowed schools to offer advanced learning experiences, which is much required in developing countries like ours. One can see the gradual shift to this new world from within the classroom itself. The chalks and blackboards were first replaced by whiteboards and markers. Now? Students are glued to interactive boards which the teacher can control with electronic pens and computers.

The advancement of teaching key and practical IT skills through school curriculum has enabled virtual collaboration facilities amongst students and faculty to improve information exchange, promote collaborative learning and exchange of ideas. This third age of learning has even enabled teachers to devise digitally stimulating and compatible teaching methods to improve the learning capabilities of students.

Today’s generation is quite tech savvy and India has over 74 million internet users. Be it the introduction of WhatsApp or iMessage, people are now discovering faster ways to connect across the globe as the benefits to such advancement for the society are endless.

The link between a great education and career progression also seems to possess a close connectivity considering the quality of the job would equally be of global and high standards. It is wise to allow the present generation in India to engage in the third age of connectivity through the medium of their studies.

As technology becomes an intrinsic part of our everyday lives, there is no doubt that the fourth age (if third ever stops evolving) of connectivity will be bigger, better and beneficial for all across sectors of our economy. With such rapid advancements, it is safe to predict that students may soon give their exams in virtual reality!

Rehan Naqvi of Kendriya Vidhyalaya said, “The paper was straight forward, but lengthy”. “Many questions were similar to those in last year’s paper. One who had attempted previous years’ papers would have done well,” added Arjun of Study Hall.
Many students claimed the paper to be a balanced one and expected to score above 85%. But some, like Mantasha and her friends, felt section D of the paper was tricky. According to Akshay of Rani Lakshmi Bai school, eleven long questions of six marks each in the last section of the paper were the most difficult ones to attempt and required more time than was given. Jawaid Alam Khan, CBSE coordinator for Lucknow, confirmed that the mathematics paper was lengthy but stuck to the syllabus.

Personalized Learning and Big Data can be the future for corporate training. Many companies have already started leveraging it. Big Data has become a trend in recent times with multiple numbers of companies and brands started analyzing data sets to reveal patterns, trends, and associations especially relating to human behavior and interactions.

During online learning, a student leaves a trace of his progress and success. By following the student’s steps, a teacher can get a lot of useful information for further analysis and future benefit to other students. Today, many companies already know how to analyze such data and provide forecasts of a students’ further learning. Such systems can tell which students need help and in which topics they should be supported.

Adaptive learning will actively expand in the near future, and students, teachers, and developers will benefit from it. Those companies that are able to offer the most interesting and relevant solutions for the market will have a high earning potential. At the same time, those organizations that apply such analytical tools in their systems will be able to improve performance and productivity of their employees and students.

2. Mobile Learning or m-Learning

Over the last 5 years, adoption of mLearning or mobile learning has been on an upswing. Flexibility to offer the courses that are multi-device (they run seamlessly on desktops, laptops, tablets, and smartphones) is the single biggest gain. The coming year will see maturing of delivery that is completely responsive that is, the online course will adapt to the device it is being viewed on.

For example, eLearning content that is automatically generated by the system based on the needs of a particular online learner. Essentially, you create a programming code that triggers a certain response on command. You’re able to dictate what that command is, such as a test score or performance benchmark. For instance, a particular piece of eLearning content displays when an online learner passes the E-Learning assessment. If they don’t meet the minimum requirements, the code may generate a resource list they can use to improve.

Automation in E-Learning course development could rise like never before.

Augmented Reality and Virtual Reality are set to change the way people learn in 2017 bringing immersive learning experiences.

Imagine a scenario where you can learn thing by experiencing them. E-Learning with implementation of Augemented Reality on it can bring in that extra bit of elevated experience in learning. You just bought a new home and you still need to install some fixtures to get the lights working. The only problem is that you have never installed a light switch before, and you would like to do it yourself. This is where eLearning could drastically change the way in which we inherent knowledge, especially online. If you were wearing an augmented reality headset you could get detailed visual instructions regarding the light switch as well as a holographic interface that displays the correct wires and functions. Yet this is just the tip of the iceberg.

Recent Digital Marketing Trends| Radice-Edu Blog

05f8766c-6dcc-4ebd-8b7d-a89709c42804

Hey!

With more and more strategies and campaigns coming into the digital marketing industry, it is very much important to ensure that the product or brand is getting the adequate amount of popularity that it demands. Let us check on the recent trends in digital marketing that is actually creating the ‘Buzz’

Trending #1: More of Live Video

In 2016, Facebook launched ‘Facebook Live’ and brought with it a new wave of live videos. Surveys show that the number of Facebook users engaged in live videos is tremendous. Taking this scenario into consideration, many companies and brand have started using ‘Live Videos’ as a digital marketing tool.

Trending #2: Impressive Marketing

Some of you might be thinking what makes this a valid point? As digital marketing is everywhere now, markets should be really creative to not only attract more attention but also sustain that curiosity of the customer. That is the main reason why multiple companies and brands stick on to talented marketing teams to create outstanding content, motivational ads, and videos that inspire their customers.

Impressive Marketing is the key to a customer engagement.

Trending #3: Voice Driven SEO

Unlike the type-and-read searches of the past couple decades, new connected home devices bring an audio component into the mix.

What does this mean for SEO? The primary result is that search queries are more conversational in tone than in the past. People conduct their search as though they are asking a friend, rather than in a shorthand way. For example, a person looking for movie times near their house might search “movie times 07724”. By contrast, when a person speaks, they are more likely to phrase it as “What movies are playing near me tonight?”

It is now important to improvise websites to provide content with predominant importance to keyword variations. Content writers should focus on creating excellent content that is written in a conversational tone.
