About normalization involved in the declaration of CAT result 2018
What is normalization?
In the process of normalization, differences in scores between sessions are taken into account, and that is normalized to ensure fairness and equity.
Why is normalization required?
Normalization is required because Common Admission Test takes place in two different sessions. There could be differences in questions in these two sessions.
How is normalization done?
Normalization of CAT scores in 2018 involves an unknown formula. It is likely to be similar to normalization formula used in GATE exam.
Normalization formula for GATE exam is as follows.
Normalization is a well-known practice that educational institutions use to compare scores of test takers across multiple forms. Apart from IIMs, it is also in use by other national level entrance exams such as GATE (Graduate Aptitude Test in Engineering). IIMs implement percentile equivalence for normalization across sections.
Scaled scores are further converted to percentile.
