SSC 2019 Exam: Normalization Method for calculating Qualifying Marks
Recently SSC has conducted several exams in Multiple Shifts on Different Dates. Some of them are SSC Selection Posts Phase-VI 2019 Exam, SSC Stenographer Grade C and D 2019 Exam and soon will be conducting SSC GD Constable 2019 Exam. For fair assessment and selection process, SSC has announced the normalization method through official notification on its website.
The Staff Selection Commission (SSC) has already decided to normalize the scores of candidates for the examinations which are conducted in multi-shifts to take into account any variation in the difficulty levels of the question papers across different shifts. The normalization is done based on the fundamental assumption that "in all multi-shift examinations, the distribution of abilities of candidates is the same across all the shifts".
This assumption is justified since the number of candidates appearing in multiple shifts in the examinations conducted by the Commission is large and the procedure for allocation of examination shift to candidates is random. The following formula will be used by the Commission to calculate final score of candidates in the multi-shift examinations:
= Normalized marks of jth candidate in the ith shift.
= is the average marks of the top 0.1% of the candidates considering all shifts (number of candidates will be rounded-up).
= is the sum of mean and standard deviation marks of the candidates in the examination considering all shifts.
= is the average marks of the top 0.1% of the candidates in the ith shift (number of candidates will be rounded-up).
= is the sum of mean marks and standard deviation of the ith shift.
= is the actual marks obtained by the jth candidate in ith shift.
= is the sum of mean marks of candidates in the shift having maximum mean and standard deviation of marks of candidates in the examination considering all shifts.
Calculation of marks will be done up to 5 decimal places.
So, whenever CBE is conducted in multiple sessions for the same Exam by SSC, the raw marks obtained by the candidates in different sessions will be converted to normalized marks fair assessment and selection process.
