The “right” note, grail of the professor and the puzzle of this edition of the ibc… Because, pandemic requires, the final proofs are replaced by the average of the first and second quarters. The rules have changed in April, taking the short institutions who have the habit of note severely their students during the year. “In some high schools, there students as if they were in preparation for the push to work hard and achieve brilliantly in their tank. Except that this year it is the notes that count for the award of the degree “, described Alexis Torchet, national secretary of the Sgen-CFDT.

The union has proposed that the class council is in charge to adjust the averages. “It is the teaching team who, with the best vision of the course the student would have been able to perform the re-evaluation the more equitable “advocates there. But the ministry has opted for the creation of juries of harmonization placed under the responsibility of the vice-chancellors.
“We have the success rate and references to the original facility over the last three years “says a professor, a future member of one of these juries. “Let’s say that the average student of this school this year it will be two percentage points lower than the previous period, we will move up two points the notes of all its candidates “anticipates-t-il, specifying that “the adjustment will be to the downside “.
How to take into account the third quarter
But “the weakness of the framing “ has led some institutions to take the lead, finds Clear Guéville, national secretary of the Snes. “A large public high school in paris has asked her teachers to give each student a note-book school corresponding to the one that they feel need to be assigned to the bac “, sliding-t-it. This trade unionist teacher notes also that “the academic authorities have suggested to reinstate the notes given at the beginning of the third quarter, before the confinement, in the middle of the second “.
The work done to the house since mid-march is not supposed to count for the tray. But it may seem unfair to candidates who planned to accelerate in the last line. “Also, we have asked the teachers to draw to the attention of the jury opinion to be valued on the work provided during the confinement. What tip the balance for those who are “limits” to get the pan or a “ensures Lysiane Gervais, national secretary of the trade union of the personnel of department of national education SNPDEN.

To enhance the commitment, some go further, as the head of the school in the centre of France, who has urged his teachers to give a third quarter average average “benevolent “ that may not be lower than those of the first two and built in to the note sent to the jury. “A way also of bringing the success rate and references from my high school at levels close to those of the other years “recognizes it, so that its students can get usually two to three points higher on the tray than in continuous monitoring.
“My son got two more points “
“As soon as the composition and functioning of the jury remain unclear, one can understand that school leaders are questioning the desirability of harmonising the notes internally, before sending “comments Vivien Joby, president of the SNCEEL, organization of school leaders of the private.
A question all the more justified that grading practices vary within each school. “Learning that the tray of French would be awarded on the basis of its ongoing monitoring, the parents of the class revolted, because our children have a teacher who is very severely, testament James, the father of a student in a private school île-de-france. The averages tended to be revised upwards, in-house, very opaque. My son got two more points. “ Highlighted by the crisis of the Covid, the challenge of harmonization arises in reality in the long term. Because the new ferry, fully in force next year, will be based 40 % on continuous assessment. “The schools elitist will continue to be severe – including to separate gradually the students of the less good ones – but without the disadvantage of their candidates for the ibc. This implies to assess more generously to the work counting towards the degree “anticipates the sociologist Pierre Merle. “We need to conduct a discussion on the notation and its purpose “, offers Gilles Demarquet, the president of the Apel, the Association of parents of students of free education. “Already, this crisis, as well as the functioning of Parcoursuphave brought awareness to our teachers that they needed to revolutionize their way to note “ensures Vivien Joby.
Parcoursup, a selection on the continuous monitoring
Created in 2017, the platform assignment in the upper Parcoursup is based on the notes of the continuous control of first and terminal but does not take into account the results of the bac, including the trials of terminal take place at a later time. To compensate for the differences in rating between high schools, some courses operate a “recovery” by providing (during the file review, or even as soon as they are sorted by an algorithm) a bonus to the candidates of the institutions ” elitist “. From next year, Parcoursup will incorporate two-thirds of the notes of the lac, including the ongoing monitoring and the final proofs of the teachings of the specialty, passed as early as march.
