### SELECTION OF THE SAMPLES

### Summative Assessment:

**i. **Arrange all the students of class IX/X (all sections) in increasing order of marks calculated for SA-

**ii. **Divide the total number of students in three groups as follows:

**a. **Top one-third students,

**b. **Middle one-third students, and

**c. **Bottom one-third students.

For example: If there are 100 students in Class IX/X in a School, the three groups may consist of 33, 33 and 34 students after they have been arranged in increasing order of marks.

**iii. **Pick up the top five students from the first group, the last five students from the third group and

any five students from the middle group.
