Guidelines for Assessment
Criteria for assessment for each Qualification Pack will be created by the Sector Skill Council. Each Performance Criteria (PC) will be assigned marks proportional to its importance in NOS. SSC will also lay down proportion of marks for Theory and Skills Practical for each PC
The assessment for the theory part will be based on knowledge bank of questions created by the SSC
Individual assessment agencies will create unique question papers for theory part for each candidate at each examination/training centre (as per assessment criteria below
Individual assessment agencies will create unique evaluations for skill practical for every student at each examination/training centre based on this criteria
To pass the Qualification Pack, every trainee should score a minimum of 70% in aggregate
The marks are allocated PC wise, however, every NOS will carry a weightage in the total marks allocated to the specific QP
