1) Online feeding of internal marks is altogether different from Online furnishing of SSC candidates data. An opportunity was given for correction/revision in Students data previously. But no such facility will be provided for Online furnishing of internal marks. Once the marks entered and confirmed by the Headmasters it is sealed once for all. Therefore utmost care shall be exercised by the Headmasters. The entire work should be completed under the close monitoring of the Headmasters concerned.
2) The entire process of posting of Online furnishing of internal marks comes under the purview of Act 25 of 1997. Any negligence while posting of marks, awarding of marks without conducting tests, awarding of marks without valuation, showing wilful bias/favour towards any candidate etc., will attract the penal provisions of Act 25 of 1997 which ranges from punishment with imprisonment for a term which shall not be less than Five years but which may extend upto 10 years and with a fine which shall not be less than Rupees Ten thousand but which may extend upto Rupees One lakh.
PROCEDURE FOR WORKING OUT THE FORMATIVE TESTS MARKS AND
1) The Headmasters shall keep the cumulative records containing the marks of 4 Formative tests of all the subjects of SSC candidates ready by the end of 1st week of February 2015.
2) He has to verify the marks posted in the cumulative record with reference to the subject wise records, and other evaluation material maintained by subject teachers. The Headmasters are required to undertake this exercise after completion of every formative test and ensure that the subject-wise records maintained by the concerned subject teachers are100% accurate. The teachers shall sign on the subject wise individual
records where formative test marks are recorded after completion of every formative test. Similarly the Headmasters concerned also shall authenticate the records by putting their signatures after verification of the records.
3) Similar exercise has to be done by the Headmasters in respect of posting of subject wise marks on the cumulative records. The Headmasters may obtain the signature of individual teachers, if necessary, on the cumulative record also while duly affixing his signature on the record in token of having verified the marks posted on the record. This completes the authentication of records.
4) The Headmasters shall take the subject wise and candidate wise average of the formative test marks thoroughly before posting of marks Online.
For example: Suppose a student has secured 12 marks in the 1st formative test, 14 in the second, 15 in the third and 13 in the 4th formative test in a particular subject, then the average has to be taken as follows:
The sum of the 4 formative tests : 12 + 14 + 15 + 13 = 54
Average : 54/4=13.5
The 13.5 may be rounded off to 14 and the figure has to be taken into account for posting.
If the average score is between 13.1 to 13.4 it has to be rounded off to
5) In case a candidate has taken only three formative tests and absent for
4th formative test, it is the responsibility of the concerned teacher and the
Headmaster to conduct the 4th formative test by intimating the same to the candidate. If the candidate fails to turn-up and if the candidate
attendance is within the range of condonation, the sum of the marks of 3 formative tests secured by the candidate shall be divided by 4 and the Quotient has to be taken into account.
For example: A candidate has secured 15 in the 1st formative test, 14 in the 2nd, 15 in the 3rd test and absent for 4th formative test.
The sum of the 3 formative tests : 15 + 14 + 15 = 44
Divide it by 4 : 44/4=11
The Quotient 11 has to be taken into account.
