Board of Directors will prepare an evaluation policy in the next 10 days | Goa News
âGoa Board will come up with an alternative system to assess students if the pandemic situation persists. We’ve been working on it and it will be out in the next eight to ten days. We want to maintain an open policy that if a student is good at writing and has contributed to a publication through essays, they can be awarded points for it. We will also be holding exams, but at the same time students will get grades for those other skills they have, âGoa Council Chairman Bhagirath Shetye said.
This will reduce the need for formal tests to assess students.
In 2021, state council class X and XII public exams were canceled due to the student safety pandemic. The Goa Council had to develop a policy to assess students in this situation. Individual academic achievement committees were formed and the Board provided them with a formula to assess students taking into account their performance in previous years and their internal assessment scores.
Shetye said that under such circumstances, a policy is needed that can assess students specifically in a pandemic situation.
