1. You are aware that evaluation is the most important process in the actual and correct assessment of the candidates. Small mistakes in evaluation may lead to serious problems which may affect the future of the candidates, education system and teaching profession. To avoid mistakes, it is requested that before starting evaluation, you must read and understand the spot evaluation guidelines carefully. Evaluation is a 10-12 days mission for all of us. Hence, it is desired from you too give your best in this process.
2. Evaluation is to be done as per instructions provided in the marking scheme. It should not be done according to one’s own interpretation or any other consideration. Marking scheme should be strictly adhered to and religiously followed. However, while evaluating answers which are based on latest information or knowledge and innovative may be assessed and marks be awarded to them.
3. The head examiner has to go through the first five answer scripts evaluated by each evaluator to ensure that evaluation has been carried out as per instructions given in the marking scheme. The remaining answer scripts meant for evaluation shall be given only after ensuring that there is no significant variation in the marking and encircled.
4. If a question has parts, please award marks on the right hand side for each part. Marks awarded for different parts of the question should then be totalled up and encircled in the left hand margin.
5. If a question does not have any parts marks must be awarded in the left hand margin and encircled.
6. If a student has attempted an extra question ,answer of the question deserving more marks should be retained and other answer scored out
7. In a question, if two features/ characteristics/ points are asked but an examinee writes more than two features/ characteristics/ points, say, five, of which first is correct, second is incorrect, the first two should be assessed and the remaining should be ignored.
8. The examiners should acquaint themselves with the instructions given in the Guidelines for Spot Evaluation before starting the actual evaluation.
9. Every examiner should stay full working hours i.e. 8 hours every day and evaluate 25 answer books.
10. It is expected that the marking scheme should be followed objectively to ensure quality evaluation. For instance, if an examinee scores 24 marks, then the marks should not be inflated to 27 simply to pass him/ her.
11. Avoid the following common type of errors committed by the examiners in the pat-
- Leaving answers or parts thereof unassessed in the answer script.
- Giving more marks for an answer than assigned to it or deviation from the marking heme.
- Wrong transference of marks from the inside pages of the answer books to the title page.
- Wrong question wise totaling on the title page.
- Wrong totaling of marks of the two columns on the title page.
- Wrong grand total.
- Marks in words and figures not tallying.
- Wrong transference of marks from answer books to award list.
- Answer marked as correct but marks not awarded.
- Half or a part of answer marked correct and the rest as wrong but no marks awarded.
12. Marks should be awarded keeping in view the total marks of a particular question and not the total marks of the question paper. For example, if one mark is given to a 3 marks question even if nothing is correct, then that one mark constitutes 33% of the total marks for this answer.
13. The examiner shall also have to certify in the answer book that they have evaluated the answer book strictly in accordance with the value points given in the marking scheme and correct set of question papers.
14. While evaluating the answer scripts, if the answer is found to be totally incorrect, it should be marked as (x) and awarded zero (0) marks.
15. A full scale of marks 0-80 has to be used. Please do not hesitate to award full marks if the answer deserves it. Similarly, wherever an examinee writes an answer upto the mark, his/ her marks should not be deducted unnecessarily.
16. As per the orders of Hon’ble Supreme Court, the candidates would now be permitted to obtain photocopy of the Answer Book on request on payment of the prescribed fee. All examiners/ Head Examiners are once again reminded that they must ensure that evaluation is carried out strictly as per value points for each answer as given in the Marking Scheme.
