Gujarat agent complains to CBSE about internal assessment system

AHMEDABAD: Unhappy About The Figures Her Daughter Got In Class X From A City School, An IPS Officer From Gujarat Filed A Complaint With () On Tuesday.

In His Complaint, The Officer, Vipul Aggarwal, Claimed That Schools Misused 'freedom'. Given For Students' Internal Assessment And Acting In A" Random Way" .

The Gujarat Executive Officer From 2001 Mailed His Complaint To Tuesday, A Day After The Board Announced Its Class X Results.

Aggarwal Is Currently Posted In Ahmedabad As The Joint Commissioner Of Police (Administration).

In The E-mail, Aggarwal Said That Her Daughter Has Achieved 89.6% In The Class X Exam And 448 Out Of A Total Of 500 Points.

For Each 100-point Course, The CBSE Performs Exams For 80 Points, While Schools Take The Remaining 20 Tests, The So-called Internal Assessment (IA) Or Practical.

From The Marker Sheet, Her Daughter Secured 91% In The ' Theory ' Papers Of 80 Points Each Performed By The CBSE While Her Score Stayed 84% When It Comes To ' Practical ' Marks Given By Her School, Which According To Aggarwal Her Daughter ' S Overall Rating Has Decreased.

In Mathematics And Science She Has 76 And 75 Of The Total Of 80 In The ' Theory ' Segment.

However, She Received 15 And 17 Of The Total 20 Through Her School.

" It Is Clear That In Most Cases The Grades Given By School Are Much Lower Compared To What She Has Scored In Theory, Which Has Led To A Reduction In Her Total Percentage.

In Fact, The Difference Is In The Degree Of 20% In Mathematics, Which Is Absurd, Aggarwal Said While Talking To Media People.

While He His Daughter ' Comparing Characters With A Male Student From A CBSE School In Uttar Pradesh, Aggarwal Claims That The Last 75.25% Earned In The ' Theory ', He Got 20 Out Of 20 In All Subjects Through His School, Helping Him Get Higher Grades.

" So A Student Who Scores Only 55% In Mathematics And 65% In Science Learning Publications Receives 100% Internal Assessment.

It Seems That A Justified Internal Assessment, Aggarwal Asked, Clarifying That He Simply Questions The Freedom Given To The Schools, And Not The Grades That Her School Gave Her Daughter.

" Ma'am, I Don't Want To Contest The Grades Given By School, But My Objection Is The Freedom That CBSE Offers To Assign Grades To Schools In A Completely Random Way," The IPS Officer Said In The Complaint.

He Claimed That Although Some Schools Give High Marks In Internal Evaluation, But Preferably 100%, Some Others Are Conservative, Which Results In Iniquity For Students.

The Worrying Aspect Is That CBSE Has So Far Been Helpless To Curb This. When We Talk About A Uniform Research Standard For The Whole Of India, Why Are There Such Differences And Aberrations That Harm The Students?

I Therefore Call On The Intervention Of Your Good Services To Ensure That More Discipline And Responsibility Is Imposed On The Schools So That Students ' Careers Don't Suffer And The Credibility Of The Honorable Institution Is Maintained, He Said.

Aggarwal, Himself A Class X Topper In 1991, Suggested That The Board Consider Completely Abolishing The IA System Or Proposing A Clear And Objective Methodology.

He Also Suggested That The Final Practical Exam At Schools Be Conducted By Independent Examiners.

Aggarwal Said That The Current Assessment System Is Wrong, Not Her Daughter's School.

" My Statement Is That CBSE Has No Control Over The Internal Assessment Performed By Schools. The Total Percentage Of My Daughter 's Is Influenced By Lower Grades That The School Has Given In The Internal Assessment, The Officer Said.
