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

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.

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

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.
