Abstract

Evaluation in Indian schools, across assortments of examination boards and subjects, I contend, are basically meant to be a formality where the concerns of ensuring better pass percentages appear paramount. Second, the overriding evaluation criteria appears to be governed more by psychological concerns of minimizing stress and fear of exams than the need of testing understanding and skills. And by evaluation I refer both to the process of setting a test/examination paper and its assessment where, either marks or grades are awarded.
