Multiple Choice Questions and Aptitude Tests

Multiple Choice Questions (MCQ) are very limited in usefulness, and are necessary evil to deal with large number of candidates, along with necessity to machine grade their answers. Normal stepwise long answer questions are far more effective in assessing a learner’s abilities, and thinking orientation and degree of match with the desired thought process in a context.

Multiple Choice Aptitude Test is an untested bogey, or at its best an uncritical superstition, with no basis or proof that it works ( just as measures of intelligence such as IQ), de-contextualized pattern recognition or puzzle solving can fall easy prey to superficial training, or gaming the system, lacks the depth of a scholarly discipline or an intellectual tradition to test anything real, and at its best can become some surrogate version of intuitive Maths.

We should add a test of comprehension and other subjects that are normality taught at school, but are not part of JEE as of now.

Aptitude test will have a negative bearing on the rural—urban divide. Urban students will be able to perform better in an aptitude test. Hence it is unfair.

Statistical data from the past

Since we have JEE marks, board marks, and our performance data for the last several batches, we should study correlation between these quantities, and in case, there is lack of correlation between JEE marks and students‘ performance in IITs, then JEE should be fixed to become a better predictor of success, rather than removing JEE.

I will take JEE’12 as my 1st attempt. Will the JEE pattern be changed from this year(ie JEE2013) itself?? if not, then by which year will the new pattern come to effect. Please enlist in detail about the changes being proposed in the exam & about the new aptitude test.

Expert Reply: Since government officially has not declared any such changes regarding IIT-JEE. The changes are in process so, you need to wait for the official declaration by IIT-JEE officials. It would be better if you prepare well for the exam than wasting time on thinking about the patterns. Most of the students enroll in coaching classes for the entrance exams and the coaching classes faculty are much aware of any possible changes. So relax, and study well as if there are any changes your preparation would be done accordingly.
