Prof. Damodar Acharya Committee reportedly proposes to scrap IIT JEE and other entrance exams

Update: Following are excerpts from a follow-up Telegraph report which mentions about the committee’s recommendation to have wide-spread consultations before making the changes.

But it has advised caution in implementing the reforms. The panel has suggested detailed consultations and workshops with the state governments, other top engineering institutions like the National Institutes of Technology, and private universities.

The recommendations of the panel can be fine-tuned based on the outcome of the consultations, the team led by IIT Kharagpur director Damodar Acharya has suggested. The panel is likely to meet soon and may draw up a schedule for the consultations at that meeting.

… At a meeting of the panel in Chennai on March 16 with representatives of state and central school boards, some participants suggested that rural students be given more opportunities than urban students. The participants proposed two attempts for urban students and three for rural students.

The panel and the HRD ministry will also need to convince state governments that the move to end state-specific engineering tests is not against their interests.


Following is an excerpt from a report in Telegraph.

… The panel, appointed by human resource development minister Kapil Sibal, has recommended replacing the four-decade-old IIT-Joint Entrance Examination (JEE) and myriad other engineering entrance examinations with a common test modelled on the US-based scholastic aptitude test (SAT).

The panel has suggested that the IITs accord a 70 per cent weightage to board examination scores in picking students, ..

Scores in the common aptitude test that will replace the IIT-JEE will contribute the remaining 30 per cent weightage in determining which candidates are selected, the panel has recommended.

Unlike the current engineering entrance examinations including the IIT-JEE, the common aptitude test will not have questions on physics, chemistry and math, but will test students’ powers of logical reasoning and communication skills.

If the recommendations are accepted, the IITs will for the first time admit students based more on their board examination marks than on their performance in a special entrance test.

…The minister had announced in February that he was setting up a panel under IIT Kharagpur director Damodar Acharya to study proposed reforms to the IIT-JEE. The panel was appointed in March, with the directors of the IITs in Mumbai, Roorkee and Chennai as the other members.

…  The panel has recommended that the government develop a Comprehensive Weighted Performance Index (CWPI) to calculate a student’s overall score based cumulatively on his performance in the board examinations and in the common aptitude test. The report appears principally based on discussions at a meeting held with other government representatives, including Central Board of Secondary Education chairman Vineet Joshi and select state representatives in Chennai on March 16.

The HRD ministry is already working towards a plan to introduce a common high school curriculum in the sciences and math, cutting across the 35 boards — central and state — that govern Indian school education.

The common curriculum would make easier a comparison between the board examination scores of students from schools affiliated to different central and state government boards, Joshi had told the meeting.

The CWPI proposed by the panel is aimed at normalising any differences that remain between difficulty levels of school-leaving examinations under different boards.

There is a big danger that the above approach will make the XIIth exams a high stakes affair and bring it under the microscope with every aspect of it being scrutinized and judged by everyone. Most coaching classes may reinvent themselves and start coaching how to score more marks in the XIIth exam and the proposed SAT type exam. This approach may bring in bias favoring students from families with educated parents. English being a compulsory subject in XIIth, this may put students in rural areas and other areas where English is less used at a disadvantage.

So one has to wait and see how this will pan out.

My guess is if the above idea is adopted, it will go through some changes such as specific types of colleges may be allowed to give different weight to Class XII marks in different subjects. Some may introduce interviews or other tests.

One change that should be made is that when possible specialty branches should not be assigned to most  students (say 70-80% in any college/institute) immediately after they join a college/institute after the XIIth. That should be determined after a year in that college/institute based on the performance in that year. This will make the class XII exam less cutthroat and ensure that students after they get into a college/institute continue to give importance to academics.

One alternative idea may to test the proposed idea (of using class XIIth marks) on 50% of the seats for a few years before deciding whether to completely abandon the current approach or not.

Read India Campaign in Orissa: A report by Dr. Dhanada Mishra

Review Report of Read India Campaign in Orissa (Jul – Nov 2007)

Dhanada Mishra 

Introduction:

Pratham started its ‘Learning to Read’ and library activities in the slum areas of Cuttack in 2003 and later the direct program was expanded to Jaypore town in Koraput with support of BILT. Later the program was expanded when Pratham Orissa in collaboration with Orissa Primary Education Program Authority (OPEPA) conducted a pilot of ‘Learning to Read’ in 4 blocks of 4 districts namely- Kantamal of Boudh, Tikabali of Kandhamal, Basta of Balasore and Thakurmunda of Mayurbhanj during the period Nov 06 – April 07. The pilot received positive response and now the campaign has moved to 24 out of 30 districts of Orissa. We are covering 181 blocks (roughly half of the state) in these 24 districts. The blocks have been chosen in consultation with OPEPA on the basis of backwardness in terms of various parameters such as out of school children percentage, results etc. as compared to state average.

The campaign was launched on 28th of July with a 2 day state level consultation with various partner organizations. The campaign is 3 months old and community based as the OPEPA partnership to implement it through the school system is yet to be finalized, but likely to take place very soon.

No. of Districts: The campaign will now cover 24 out of 30 districts of Orissa

Target Children: The target group is the children in the age group of 6-14 years.

Learning Goals

    The target children should be able to read 6 letter words and simple sentences, passage, short stories without conjoined letters.

Achievements and Shortfalls:

    • Mobilisation
      • Reach – We have reached about 18340 out of approximately 25000 villages. We have realized that there has to be a change in tactics to speed up our reach by collaborating with existing network of NGOs, SHGs, Government programs such as OTELP, Watershed mission etc. We realistically expect to reach any where between 15000-20000 by middle of November.
      • Partnership – Formal partnership (MOU) with OPEPA is yet to be signed. But we have got in principle letters of support from State Project Director addressed to all DPCs, we have letters of support from Revenue Divisional Commissioner (RDC)s of two out of 3 zones where most of our districts are located in support of our campaign addressed to collectors. Number of districts are giving us good support with out formal MOU. We have partnership on the ground with about 30 NGOs. We have received small local financial support from one group of educational institutions (CSREM) and a US based NGO – IAFF. Partnership proposal with UNICEF is being negotiated for joint campaign in Koraput and Raygada districts. Some 3811 schools are conducting L2R classes.
      • Personnel- Number of volunteers mobilised was about 14500 at roughly one per village.
    • Training: Almost 17500 volunteers out of 23800 volunteers mobilised have been trained by the end of November. No. Of teachers (700), SHG members (100), Anganwadi workers (1400) have been mobilised but those trained have been much smaller in comparision.
    • TLM: Pratham – Pratham has printed and distributed about 220000 sets of materials to the trained volunteers at the rate of set of 20 booklets per volunteers so that the trained volunteers can start the classes. About 4600 volunteers had received the material by end of November.
    • Teaching-Learning Activities – About 280000 children are involved in the classes by the end of November.

 

Other Highlights of Achievements:

  1. 196 blocks in 24 districts have been identified and block coordinators, district coordinators and zonal coordinators selected, trained and deployed.
  2. Almost 23800 volunteers have been identified in about 18300 villages and training is going on.
  3. About 17500 volunteers already trained and conducting classes.
  4. 12 page TLM has been designed and printed and being distributed in phases as more and more volunteers are trained and getting ready to start classes.
  5. Letters of supports have been received from SPD and two RDCs.
  6. MOU under negotiation with Orissa’s largest Newspaper group.
  7. Pratham has conducted a ‘Story Writing and Story Reading’ festival in 1500 panchayats in collaboration with SAMBAD – the largest circulating Oriya daily. Almost 15000 children have participated in this festival and it has created thousands of stories written by children that can be used by us in creating material for the Reading campaign.
  8. In collaboration with UNICEF Pratham organised a ‘Reading can be Fun’ stall on Children’s Day for the state level function. UNICEF is considering a proposal to partner with Pratham in their reading program in Koraput and Raygada districts.
  9. In collaboration with Institute of Mathematics and Application (IMA), Bhubaneswar and its director Prof. Swadhin Pattnaik (most well known mathematician of Orissa), Pratham volunteers helped conduct the Rural Mathematics Talent Search Examination (RMTS) on November 18th. As a result of our help, almost 10000 additional class VI students could take the test in almost 100 centres in remote rural areas. This partnership is likely to help us in the future with our work in ‘R2L’ in mathematics.
  10. Number of corporates have shown interest in sponsoring Read Orissa campaign as part of their Corporate Social Responsibility program.
  11. Negotiation is underway with the ICDS department for conducting a 10 block pilot of the Sishubachan program through the Anganwadi centers.
  12. The Skill development program being run at Central Toolroom and Training Center (CTTC) has expanded from one pilot batch of students to four batches.
  13. Spoken English pilot at the Government High School, IRC Village in Bhubaneswar is running well with children showing good progress.
  14. First issue of ‘Pratham Parikrama’ – the newsletter of Pratham has been published.

 

All in all it has been an exhilarating experience, as we go about taking the campaign forward and reaching out to children far and wide in remote corners of the state. We hope to work closely with OPEPA at the state level and education department officials at all levels and finally primary school teachers to ensure that all of our children are able to read, write and do arithmetic.

Orissa government doubles teachers’ salaries

Following is an excerpt from a report in Pioneer.

Henceforth, headmasters of the eligible block-grant schools will be regarded as secretaries of the school management committees. They will enjoy the power of the disbursing authority. The Government will send the salaries of the teachers and other staffs in the account of the headmasters for disbursement. Earlier, secretaries of the management committee received the money, for which various problems cropped up. The same principle will also be applicable for the ME School teachers.

The Government doubled the salaries of the High and ME School teachers. As the Government has not been able to provide full grants to the schools due to an MoU signed by the then Congress Government in 1999 with the Centre, it has decided to double the block grant amount given to the schools. Henceforth, a Trained Graduate Teacher (TGT) will receive a salary of Rs 3,330 instead of Rs 1,579. A Sanskrit and a Hindi teacher will receive salary of Rs 2,997 instead of Rs 1,523. A Physical Education Teacher (PET) will get Rs 2,398 instead of Rs 1,218, a clerk Rs 2,031 instead of Rs 1,072 and a Peon Rs 1,698 instead of Rs 846.

Finance Minister Prafulla Chandra Ghadai said teachers and staff of the 100 girls’ high schools, high schools of 169 Gram Panchayats (GPs), 102 ‘Left’ High Schools and another 59 High Schools would benefit. "The Government will have to bear an additional expenditure of Rs 167 crore on this account only," he said.

He further said the ME Schools would receive a block-grant of nearly Rs 68 lakh instead of Rs 33 lakh. Those ME Schools and High Schools eligible to receive block-grant by June, 2004, will come under the block-grant-fold. All the decisions would come into effect from April 2008.

Sarva Siksha Abhiyan : Steps in Orissa and Delhi

Following are excerpts from  a report in NDTV.

The government is likely to re-orient Sarva Siksha Abhiyan (SSA), the flagship programme of Human Resource Development (HRD) Ministry, into a National Mission for Quality Elementary Education.

A decision to transform SSA into a national mission with specific monitorable target is likely to be taken by the Planning Commission meeting on higher education under the chairmanship of Prime Minister. …

The meeting will also consider a proposal to enact a law to provide compulsory quality education to children of 6-14 years of age, with joint funding from the Centre and states.

The Commission will take a view on the proposal to revamp the National Literacy Mission and introduce Lifelong Education and Awareness Programme.

Following are excerpts from a report in Asian Age on Orissa’s plans.

The Orissa government on Wednesday decided to provide Rs 500 crores in the coming supplementary budget for widening of the Sarva Shiksha Abhiyan programme in the state.

This was decided after a review meeting held here …

It was found that the at least 40,000 teacher posts are lying vacant in various primary and high schools. The chief minister asked the department officials to fill up the vacant posts on war footing.

The long standing demand for establishment at least one high school in each gram panchayat was discussed in the meeting. It was resolved that 1,119 gram panchayats — which do not have high schools — will soon get new high schools. Middle english schools in all these gram panchayats will be upgraded as high schools, the meeting decided. Mr Patnaik also stressed the need for increasing the literacy rate in the state.
