Bhubaneswar: The Council of Higher Secondary Education (CHSE), Odisha has formulated an alternative assessment criteria for awarding marks to the +2 second year students as the annual examinations were cancelled this year due to the COVID-19 situation.

The examinees, who can’t come to their School/College because of the lock down situation, may send the same to their concerned Head of the Department in the H.S. School/College address by registered parcel. However, in case any examinee’s home or school comes under Containment Zone, time relaxation will be provided under necessary approval.
The Internal Examiner(s) of the H.S. School will award scores for the Practical component basing on i) the Practical Records, ii) performance of the examinee in the regular laboratory work experiments in the practical classes and iii) performance of the examinee in 10th Board examination. All necessary inputs will be provided by the H.S. School to the Internal Examiners.
The Practical scores awarded by the Internal Examiner(s) will be verified and corrected by the H.O.D. of the concerned Department. ln case of a single man department, the Practical scores awarded by the Internal Examiner are to be re-checked and corrected by him/her before submission.
The lnternal Examiner(s) for the Project Works will award scores for the Project component basing on (i) the Project Report submitted by the examinee, and (ii) performance of the examinee in the 10th Board examination. All necessary inputs will be provided by the H.S. School to the Internal Examiners.

Practical/Project scores will be awarded and re-checked by the lnternal Examiner(s) and Head of the Department keeping in view the average range of Practical/Project scores of the same institution in the relevant paper during the last three years and scores shall be allotted to each examinee in graded manner under the supervision of the Principal. For the purpose, each Department with Practical is required to prepare a table wlth the range of marks and number of examinees against each range for the last three years as per instructions of CHSE.
lf any examinee fails to submit the Practical/ Project Records in due time, no score will be awarded in Practical/ Project at the Higher Secondary School level and the same is to be reported to CHSE. ln such cases, proportionate score will be awarded in Practlcal/ Project by CHSE taking in to account the score awarded in the Theory Component of the concerned paper.
Scores will be awarded in Theory Papers/ Theory Component of a paper by mapping and aligning of the subjects of 10th Board with papers of Class-Xll of CHSE basing on the following principles.
i. Score of a paper of 10th Board Examination will move directly to the paper of Class-Xll of CHSE after necessary conversion out of maximum marks and rounding off to the next whole number in case of decimal figure. ln case none of the MIL/Language Papers of class 10th has been taken at CIass-Xll, then highest score in the MIL/Language Paper, irrespective of the MIL/Language Paper, will be the MIL score in Class- Xll. The scores in Optional Language Papers will be awarded in the same line as that of MIL paper.
ii. Average of the scores of the papers of 10th Board Examination will be awarded in the paper of CIass-Xll of CHSE, in case the paper of Class-Xll of CHSE is related to more than one paper of 10th Board, after necessary conversion out of maximum marks and rounding off to the next whole number in case of decimal figure.
