MANY EXAMINERS, who did not comply with the orders issued by the Madhyamik Shiksha Parishad in evaluation of answersheets of High School and Intermediate examinations 2005, have been barred from examination work in 2006. Around 180 teachers, who had been appointed examiners, did not follow Madhyamik Shiksha Parishad instructions of checking the answersheets on the pattern of Central Board of Secondary Education.

Board sources told the HT Live on Thursday that 32 teachers from Allahabad, 57 from Kanpur and 95 from Meerut regions had been issued show-cause notices to reply as to why they did not follow the rule of "step-to-step marking" while checking the answersheets of 2005 examinations. Consequently, a large number of students got less marks in the board examinations.

This matter was brought to light during scrutiny of copies. These examiners gave the marks in copies like maths and science only after checking the answers but they did not check the steps. Similarly, in English and Hindi answersheets, the examiners did not allocate separate marks on the basis of the name of the author, definitions and explanations and other details.

Notably, the UP Board has taken certain measures to change its examination system. As a part of this, the examiners were told last year that evaluation would be done on the CBSE pattern. A CD was also prepared to apprise the UP Board teachers of the CBSE pattern of checking the copies. According to the rule, one chief examiner will evaluate a single copy to make it as a model copy.

Other copies will be evaluated like the model copy. The rule was brought in force in examination 2005. All the evaluators had attended a two-day training course before beginning of evaluation work.

But nearly 180 examiners did not follow the rule as a result the board has taken a serious view and debarred them from the examination work for the 2006
examination.
