Yes, you read it right. It going to be comparable from state to state board of examination and the board of Education is working on a method in order to make class 12 results across boards comparable. To ensure that this process is done before the results date, a government committee has also been appointed to ensure the process is completed before time.
The decision was taken after all National Institute of Technology and other centrally funded technical institutions had conceded to adopt a new system of admission, where 40% weightage is given to class 12 board exam results.
The mew system shall be adopted by the 30 different education boards across India requires a process of standardization before the system is implemented. Hence a committee was held comprising of NIT Directors, CBSE Chairman Vineet Joshi, ISI Faculty, and a member from IIT Kanpur is considering four option.
What are the four options?
The first three options are being considered for the standardization process including increase of percentile of eligible students proportionally across the boards; equating the mean marks of the school boards; or equating mean marks as well as the standard deviation.
The fourth option is a model used for analyzing data from assessments to measure variables such as abilities, attitudes, and personality traits. Known as the RASCH model, it will standardize Results after taking into account differences in difficulty in various subjects offered by the different boards, and is the most sophisticated model being considered.
Hence, in order to gauge the efficiency and suitability of the different models, the data from the yr 2011-12 exams from 8 different boards is used by the committee.
