The Government of India is planning to make it compulsory for the educational institutions to have their websites
Published on 11/10/2009 1:27:57 PM
New Delhi: The Government of India plans to make it mandatory for having a website for educational institutions, where the school's infrastructure facilities and faculty will have to be spelt out.
"That is going to be part of the law, and we are going to take away their recognition if they violate this," Union Human Resources Development (HRD) Minister Kapil Sibal said.
The Minister also spoke about using the unique identification number, the first set of which is going to be rolled out in about a year, for identifying and monitoring India's primary education programme.
"Each child will be given a unique identification number, which we will use to determine if he or she has dropped out or not," he said.
It was among some other measures to reform India's education sector, Sibal said at the World Economic Forum's India Economic Summit said.
He said India is not going to give up its opposition to for-profit educational institutions as any collapse of such entities would impact students.
"If profit means giving dividend to shareholders from fees that parents pay, then my position is no," Sibal said.
Nowhere in the world has this happened. Education institutions are not like some company that can wind up one day. We cannot allow educational institutions to go bust, Sibal said.
The Minister also said there was talk of using latest technology to bring higher education to a greater mass, but the main responsibility of the government remained in promoting primary education.
"Out of the 509-million workforces, 70 per cent haven't got primary education. We first need to get the schooling system right," Sibal said.

- The project should be hand written
- Credit will be given to original and creative use of material/pictures/drawings/methods of illustrating
- The project must be presented in a neatly bound simple folder.
Any one of the following projects may be chosen:
A) Linear Equations
Project Assignment Think of a question that asks about a cause and effect relationship between two measurable quantities. (eg.. does fingernail length affect typing speed?)
1. Write two different "how does _____ affect _____" questions.
2. Select the question that makes the most sense to you and explain why you have chosen it.
3. Write a hypothesis to answer your question.
4. Graph your data using appropriate choices of scales and axis.
5. In pencil, draw your "best" line.
6. Find the equation of your line.
Respond to the following questions
7. What do the variables in your equation represent? What does the equation represent?
8. Was your data positively correlated, negatively correlated or neither? Give possible explanations for the relationships or absence of relationships that you see in the data.
9. Use your equation to predict two data points not represented by the data. How good do you think these estimates are? why?
10. What information does the slope indicate?
Present your findings in a 3-4 pages handwritten report. Graph must be included.
B) Integer trains
You can use rods of integer sizes to build "trains" that all share a common length. A "train of length 5" is a row of rods whose combined length is 5. Here are some examples:
Notice that the 1-2-2 train and the 2-1-2 train contain the same rods but are listed separately. If you use identical rods in a different order, this is a separate train.
How many trains of length 5 are there?
Repeat for length 6
Repeat for length 7
Come up with a formula for the number of trains of length n. (Assume you have rods of every possible integer length available.) Prove that your formula is correct.
Come up with an algorithm that will generate all the trains of length n.
Create trains of lengths 6,7. Record any findings, conclusions in 3-4 pages of handwritten work.
C) Area of an Arbelos
Objective: Prove that the area of the arbelos (white shaded region) is equal to the area of circle CD.
What is an arbelos?
The arbelos is the white region in the figure, bounded by three semicircles. The diameters of the three semicircles are all on the same line segment, AB, and each semicircle is tangent to the other two. The arbelos has been studied by mathematicians since ancient times, and was named, apparently, for its resemblance to the shape of a round knife (called an arbelos) used by leatherworkers in ancient times.
An interesting property of the arbelos is that its area is equal to the area of the circle with diameter CD. CD is along the line tangent to semicircles AC and BC (CD is thus perpendicular to AB). C is the point of tangency, and D is the point of intersection with semicircle AB. Can you prove that the area of circle CD equals the area of the arbelos?
To do this project, you should do research that enables you to use the following terms and concepts:
circumscribing a circle about a triangle,
area of a circle,
Tangents are perpendicular to radii at the point of contact.
Materials and Equipment
For the proof, you'll need :
Do your background research,
Organize your known facts, and
Spend some time thinking about the problem and you should be able to come up with the proof.
Present your findings in a 3-4 pages handwritten report.
D) The Birthday paradox
Objective : The objective of this project is to prove whether or not the birthday paradox holds true by looking at random groups of 23 or more people.
Introduction: The Birthday Paradox states that in a random gathering of 23 people, there is a 50% chance that two people will have the same birthday. Is this really true?
1) First you will need to collect birth dates for random groups of 23 or more people. Ideally you would like to get 10-12 groups of 23 or more people so you have enough different groups to compare. Here are a couple of ways that you can find a number of randomly grouped people.
You could use birthday lists from your own school for different classes.
Take the class lists of about 12 sections. Pass these around each of these classes and collect the birth date data
Use the birth dates of players on major teams. (Note: this information can easily be found on the internet).
2) Next you will need to sort through all the birth dates you have collected and see if the Birthday Paradox holds true for the random groups of people you collected. How many of your groups have two or more people with the same birthday? Based on the birthday paradox, how many groups would you expect to find that have two people with the same birthday?
3) Tabulate/Organize your data and findings in a 3-4 pages handwritten report
E) Perimeters of Semi Circles
Objective: The objective of this project is to prove that the sum of the perimeters of the inscribed semicircles is equal to the perimeter of the outside semicircle.
Introduction : The figure below shows a semicircle (AE) with a series of smaller semicircles (AB, BC, CD, DE,) constructed inside it. As you can see, the sum of the diameters of the four smaller semicircles is equal to the diameter of the large semicircle. The area of the larger semicircle is clearly greater than the sum of the four smaller semicircles. What about the perimeter?
Materials and Equipment
For the proof, you'll need :
Here's a suggestion for your display: in addition to your background research and your proof, you can make a model of� the Figure� with colored paper. Use a compass and straightedge to construct the semicircles. Cut pieces of string or yarn equal to the arc-lengths of the semicircles. You can use these to demonstrate that the perimeter lengths are indeed equal. Repeat for 3 different measurements of semi circles.
Do your background research,
Organize your known facts,
Perform the experiments for 3 different semi circles
Tabulate your findings
Mathematically prove the result
Present your work in 3-4 handwritten pages.

With the academic year 2009-10, CBSE moves to the next level of education!
Class IX & X students will now be evaluated on a 9-point Grading System that is based on Continuous and Comprehensive Evaluation (CCE).
The academic year gets divided into 2 terms, each having two types of assessment:
Formative = Evaluation of class work, homework, assignment and project work
Summative = Term End Exams
April - September
Two Formative Assessments each of 10% weightage = 20% Two Formative Assessments each of 10% weightage = 20%
October - March
Term End Exam / Summative = 20% Term End Exam / Summative = 40%
Total = 100%
9-Point Grading System Roadmap
Grade Marks Range
Class X (2009-10) Board Exams happen, however, instead of marks - Grades are given
Class IX (2009-10) CCE gets operational from October 2009
Class X (2010-11) CCE gets implemented & Board Exams become optional
Grading system is based on yearlong performance.

NDTV Correspondent, Tuesday October 20, 2009, New Delhi
The government has been forced to clarify its stand on just how Class 12 results will affect admission to IIT.On Monday, Kapil Sibal announced that starting in 2011, Class 12 marks will play a greater role in determining who gets into IIT. Sibal is the Minister for Human Resource Development. He said that students often ignore their Class 12 board exams to focus on entrance exams for IIT, and the new policy hopes to address that.Sibal says his remarks were misreported by some parts of the media, which said that the new guidelines mean that students will need to score much higher in their boards if they want to get into IIT. Currently, students who clear the IIT entrance exam have to prove they've scored at least 60 per cent in their Boards.Raising this minimum worries states like Bihar, where students do not have equal access to good schools. Students here perform well in the entrance exam, however, and this guarantees them admission in IIT.Sibal has clarified that the current policy has not been changed, and there is no cause for concern. What role Class 12 results will play in IIT admission will be decided by a new committee headed by Dr Anil Kakodkar, chairperson of the Atomic Energy Commission. The committee is expected to submit its guidelines in January for review.

Prashant K. Nanda for Indian Express.
NEW DELHI: The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) will divide the Class 10 into two semesters, as in management and engineering colleges, to make the evaluation process easier and smoother after board exams are scrapped from 2011.
"Once the examination is scrapped from 2011, we will divide the year into two terms - they are like two semesters (April to September, and October to March)," a senior CBSE official told IANS Monday.
"Initially, students will be evaluated for the first six months and in the second half of the year students don't need to bother about what they studied in the first semester," the official added.
In each semester there will be two 'formative assessments' and one 'summative assessment'.
Formative assessment is carried out during a course of instruction for providing continuous feedback. It will take into account both teacher's and learner's point of view in understanding and internalising a subject. It will comprise of interviews, conversations, projects and assignments among others.
In a summative assessment, grades will be given to students by their schools based on overall performance.
While 40 percent of the evaluation will be through formative assessment, the rest will be through summative assessment.
The CBSE official disclosed this to IANS soon after Human Resource Development Minister Kapil Sibal announced that Class 10 board examination under CBSE would be abolished from 2011.
Sibal said: "There will be no Class 10 board examination from 2011." The last Class 10 CBSE Board examination will take place in March-April 2010.
But the minister clarified that the exams would very much take place this academic year.
From 2011, the students' evaluation would be based exclusively on a nine-point grading system. But this will be introduced this academic year itself.
"This academic year, there will be both a Board examination and a grading system," the minister said.
Under the new system, there will be nine grades: A1, A2, B1, B2, C1, C2, D, E1 and E2.

Sai Prashanthi, the top science pupil at the Abu Dhabi Indian School, could hardly sleep the night before grades were released. Rich Joseph Facun / The National
ABU DHABI // As scores on the Indian education system’s Grade 10 and Grade 12 exams crept modestly upwards, some pupils in the UAE pushed themselves to the top of the class.
More than 93 per cent of exam-takers in GCC schools passed, and seven per cent more girls passed than did boys. Overall, the scores were half a percentage point higher than those from last year, officials said.
But for children such as Cutee Bhalla and Rizwan Rehmatullah of Our Own English High School in Sharjah, the results meant a little more.
Cutee, with an aggregate score of 95.8 per cent, is the top performer in the entire UAE, officials say, although it will not be announced until later this week.
And Rizwan earned the best score on the commerce section for boys with an 88.4 per cent – despite having to take his disabled father to the hospital every day throughout the exam period.
“We have some students who have been with us since kindergarten, and to see them get such exceptionally good results makes us very pleased,” said Farooq Wasil, executive principal for Sharjah and director of Asian schools for Global Education Management Systems.
According to the controller of examinations in Delhi, marks have gone up across the entire Central Board of Secondary Education examination system, rising to an 81 per cent passing rate from 80.91 per cent last year.
Dr Wasil said: “The average results have taken a jump, and compared to previous years, there is an upwards trend. We must pay special credit to those who have undergone difficult circumstances and have stayed focused to get good results.”
At the Abu Dhabi Indian School, all the students passed their Grade 12 exams.
Vijay Mathu, the school’s principal, said the results were excellent in both quality and quantity. “More than 28 pupils got over 90 per cent,” he said. “And everyone passed. All their hard work has paid off.”
Sai Prashanthi came in on top of the science division with a score of 93 per cent. “I could hardly sleep last night thinking about the results coming in. When I saw I was top, I couldn’t believe it. It’s amazing,” she said.
Sai, who wants to study engineering at Anna University in Chennai, said she would celebrate by going out with her family.
In Al Ain, Sreys Palliyani, who received the highest grades across all schools in the city for his Grade 10 exams two years ago, was again the top student. But he said he had hoped for more, despite his 92.4 per cent overall mark.
“Of course I am happy to have come top in my school, but I would have liked my marks to have been a little higher.”
