Education department to arrange for stay for teachers from distant places
Each assistant examiner will be given 12 papers in morning and noon sessions
TIRUCHI: The school education department in the district has initiated steps for centralised valuation of Plus Two papers in the district at the Boys' Higher Secondary School, Srirangam.
Valuation for language papers will commence on March 24, and for the dummy number papers: Mathematics, Physics, Chemistry and Biology on March 29, the Chief Educational Officer T. Mohana Kumar said. The chief examiners will assume valuation duty on the preceding days.
A total of 1,500 higher secondary teachers, encompassing about 1,100 from government and government-aided schools and the rest from self-financing higher secondary schools are to be involved in valuation duty. Teachers of government and aided schools are expected to compulsorily take part in the valuation duty. The education department will make arrangements for stay for teachers from distant places.
Each assistant examiner will be given 12 papers each in the morning and afternoon sessions. The valued papers will be checked by the scrutiny officers and ten per cent of the answer scripts inspected by them will be chosen at random and further analysed by the CEO, as per the valuation norms. Since the Plus Two students could exercise the provision for checking their answer scripts, teachers were already aware of the extreme care they are required to take to evaluate them.
The examination centre was approved by the government out of three centres suggested by the school education department based on the availability of rooms, water, and toilet facilities. Over 50 rooms in the school will be utilised for valuation work, Mr. Mohana Kumar said, exuding confidence that the valuation process could be completed by April 11, so as to hand over the venue before the Assembly elections. On Friday, the District Collector Mahesan Kasirajan, accompanied by the CEO and the representative of Anna University, Chennai, Brinda, inspected three centres, including SRV Matriculation Higher Secondary School and St. Philomena's Girls' Higher Secondary School.
The Joint Director of Secondary Education, Dharma Rajendran, who has been appointed as special officer for smooth conduct of examinations in Tiruchi district, visited schools in and around Thuraiyur and Uppiliapuram.
So far, there has been no complaint of malpractice in the district, the CEO said.
