This is due to further discussion on Z scores. There is an issue in Z scores this year due to old and new curriculum exams. Currently higher education ministry and , university grant commission are having discussion to come to an agreement on Z score.

Z score has been used effectively in previous occasions where there were two different examinations. Only way to present marks regardless of differences in degree of difficulty in two examinations is though standardization on the basis of Z score. Whatever the other arguments made and trying to convince one examination is difficult and the other one is easy is not valid and such arguments are not acceptable on evidence based scientific analysis. All subjective arguments made on two different examinations becomes invalid when the Z score is taken instead of marks for selection criteria. Universities have conducted several scientific studies to assess the performance of university students on the basis of their number of attempts they had to sit for the advanced level examinations. Z score standardizes marks and place two exams on an equal setting. Z-score is a scientifically proven yardstick to standardize different examinations and their marks. Each z-score corresponds to a point in a normal distribution and that can be described as a normal deviate, z-score describes how much the marks deviate from a mean. It is a matter of getting the z scores from both examinations and releasing the results that would be the rank. Z score was introduced several years ago to standardize data, there were no discrepancies since then. What is the delay, it is only a matter of releasing Z scores. If the mean and standard deviations were already given from the examination department, no need to have any delay in releasing results. Using the Z score is the standardard and universily accepted t procedure. That is the statistically accepted procedure in analyzing results. If the authorities stick to the accurate and internationally accepted standard procedure results can be released without any delay without having to face criticisms made on examination papers. Examinations are difficult, there are ambiguous questions in all examinations that is the exact reason why Z score is used to determine performance. Only solution is to release results on the basis of Z score. Reply Ramya says: December 10, 2011 at 12:04 pm In the year 2011 more first timers have sat for the advanced level examination, 51.33 percent from the new syllabus that is in the first attempt and 48.67 percent from the second and third attempts. All facts regarding 2011 examinations seem to be clear and straightforward. Universities have conducted several scientific research studies to assess the performance of university students . Research evidence clearly indicates that students who qualify in the first attempt at the advanced level examination perform better than the second and third attempt students. Selection criteria need to be productive and cost effective for the government and universities. Reply Ramya says: December 12, 2011 at 7:14 pm This time similar proportions have attempted advanced level examinations. 51 percent from one examination and 49% from the other (new) examination sat for the advanced level examinations in the year 2011. Statistically more or less equal numbers of students from each examination needs to enter the universities. Nearly 50 percent from old syllabus second third attempts and new syllabus that is first attempt have to qualify for university education according to Z score methodology at the end. If the correct methodology is used there will be no further uncertainties. According to the examination department Z scores can be released in two days’ time. Reply Ramya says: December 13, 2011 at 6:51 pm No need to have further delay, whatever statistical methodology used more or less equal proportions from each examination qualify for university education at the end. Giving results in two different z scores and selecting equal portions from each examination is easier, or else putting two sets of z scores in to a single list also another way of selecting equal proportions for further education. Research oriented University academics are generally familiar with statistical analysis, hope results would be available soon. Reply Ramya says: December 14, 2011 at 7:33 pm What is the reason for delay now? Can’t understand reasons for further delay? They said they will release in two days. Reply Ramya says: December 18, 2011 at 8:28 am Examinations department said results will be given before December 9. Now they say 19. However much longer it takes candidates grades and z value stay unaffected and identical. There is only one standard and undisputed statute to release results there are no different methods. There is only one way of calculating the Z score , there are no different methods of feeding data. Results need to come as they reflect the performance of students with the same Z score on December 19. There is an unnecessary delay for the students. However much it is delayed different result cannot be issued. So the results need to be out fairly soon. Reply Leave a Reply to Ramya Cancel reply Your email address will not be published.
