CBSE's aptitude test goes online

The CBSE has announced its online (computer-based) process for the fifth edition of Students Global Aptitude Index (SGAI) scheduled from December 8 to December 20 for all regions across the country.

According to the CBSE, the registered schools can visit www.cbse.nic.in and watch for Public Portal to get process details of the online SGAI 2014.

“However, only the schools with unreliable internet connection can opt for an offline assessment. With not much technical preparation required, the board has made SGAI an optional program for the schools to empower the students while making their subject choices for class 11,” said CBSE in a statement.

“Offering a multi-dimensional analysis that helps students make relevant subject choices rather than other extraneous factors, SGAI programme has been designed considering the aptitude and interest of the students. The idea for the schools is to add SGAI results with their policies and formats to get a better understanding about the students’ result.”

The CBSE said unlike conventional aptitude evaluations, the online assessment is customised to indicate academic orientations of class 12 students.

“The plan of taking SGAI assessment online is not only set to make the procedure of getting the results in an effective and quicker way but also to seek students’ empowered with self knowledge in terms of aptitude and in combination with the interest,” said Vineet Joshi in a press note.

For making the procedure smooth, the CBSE has asked schools to designate one SGAI co-ordinator from the school staff, who will be an interface on behalf of the students, the CBSE said.

The co-ordinator will be in charge to assist students during their participation in the SGAI assessment, it added.

This year, SGAI registration has shown an increase of 10 per cent students’ participation as CBSE conducted 17 training programmes for 1,050 principals, vice-principals and counsellors covering the new schools in Haryana, Madhya Pradesh, Kerala, UP, Maharashtra, Uttarakhand, Punjab, Andaman and Nicobar, Karnataka and Himachal Pradesh, the board said.
