twoQuantitative and Verbalare the samewhile the third is called Logical & Data Interpretation in the CAT and Analytical Writing Assessment in the GMAT Andof courseboth are used for an assessment of the abilities of a candidate for admission to a postgraduate programme in management In the USthe GMAT has come to dominate all other similar tests for graduate management admissions The CATtoois used not only by the IIMs but also by more than 100 other business schools in India The demand for management education being higha large number of business schools have mushroomed in India; thereforea fairly large number of candidates appear for CAT every year There ishoweverone big difference between the two tests Whereas the reliability and validity of GMAT are well-establishednothing is known scientifically of the reliability or validity of CAT As the website of the GMAC points outfor more than three decades the GMAT has been repeatedly studied and tested On the basis of those studiesthe average reliability and validity coefficients of GMAT are 092 and 048 respectively (The higher the reliability coefficientthe more repeatable or reliable the test scores; the higher the validity coefficientthe more confidence we should have in predictions made from the scores) Independent support for these claims comes from the results of hundreds of validity studies carried out by research scholars around the world A recently published meta-analysis reviewed 402 such studies involving a cumulative total of 64583 studentsand found an average operational validity of the GMAT to be 047 The GMAC also runs a Validity Study Service to pinpoint the relationship between GMAT scores and performance of studentsavailable free to participating institutions In sharp contrastwe know practically nothing about the reliability and validity of the CAT A search through the relevant journals reveals no studies on the subject; the CAT-IIM website is also silent on the question My own current study of a leading business school shows that the CAT Total Score has no statistically significant relationship with the first-year grade-point-average of students in the postgraduate diploma course in mana- gement The observed correlation was found to be 0083 for General Management Course and -0194 for the HR Management course both being non-significant While it is not appropriate to generalise from the findings of a single studythe absence of any significant positive relationship between CAT score and student performance does raise serious doubts about the tests validity It isthereforethe responsibility an obligationeven on the part of those who have developed this test to establish and demonstrate the reliability and validity of this all-important selection device which after all decides the fate of lakhs of candidates every year Such studiesmoreoverneed to be carried out on a continuing basis as the GMAC does in the US This is necessary not only because questions keep changing but also because the mode of administration changes In case CAT is not really validits use may result in two types of errors: the type-1 errorrejecting good candidates whoif admittedwould have performed well; and the type-2 erroradmitting not-so-good candidates who may be unable to cope with the required standard of performance in business school Unaware and/ or unmindful of these potential hazardsthe widespread use of CAT seems to be based entirely on an untested belief that so-called objective tests (true or false; multiple choice)especially those scored by machinemust be reliable and valid Science has no place for untested beliefs or myths Before you accept any principleyou ask for the evidence on which it is based Why is evidence on the reliability and validity of the CAT not available to its various stakeholders Parentscandidatesbusiness schoolsgovernment) have not cared to ask And so the tests developers and administrators have not cared to devote a part of their substantial revenue from it to research on this vital subject The HRD ministry is currently involved in improving the process of IIT admissions It should also look seriously at the CAT and its impact on the selection of our future managers The writer is professor emeritusInternational Management InstituteGhaziabad [email protected] For all the latest Opinion News download Indian Express App More Related NewsWritten by Samarpita Das | New Delhi | Updated: July 5 2016 8:00 pm Salman Khan with his nephew Ahil Salman Khan’s recent film Sultan is just a few days away from hitting the theatre and he’s not the only one who’s geared up for the release In a video captured by Ayush Sharma husband of the actor’s sister Arpita Khan Sharma he was caught sharing a cute moment with nephew Ahil See Pics:Sultan Salman Khan Anushka Sharma To Celebrate Eid On Kapil SharmaShow In the 50-seconds video a giggly Ahil responded to his uncle’s fist punches in the cutest way possible It’s bound to make you leave whatever you’re doing and watch the video with interaction between the superstar uncle and his nephew Top News WATCH VIDEO:5 Reasons To Watch Sultan Getting Ready for Sultan @BeingSalmanKhan pictwittercom/0aTQI4Hay2 — Aayush Sharma (@aaysharma) July 4 2016 For all the latest Entertainment News download Indian Express App IE Online Media Services Pvt Ltd More Top NewsWritten by Express News Service | Published: April 6 2013 3:31 am Related News Day 5 of traders strike Demand for scrapping policy abandoned A day after a panel appointed by the state government made it clear that the Local Body Tax (LBT) that kicked off this fiscal will staytraders agitating against the new tax regime continued their indefinite strike but modified the demand from scrapping of LBT to postponing implementation to October 1 The strike entered the fifth day on Fridayand citizens continued to reel under disruption of daily supply of essential commodities The traders have been agitating since April 1when LBT replaced Octroi The government had set up a two-member panel to look into the LBT issue and submitted its report to the government On Thursdaythe panel members tried to convince traders to call of the strike and made it clear LBT will not be scrapped The traders decided to continue the strikethis time demanding postponement of LBT implementation and exclusion of small traders from the LBT ambit The Pune Municipal Corporation and the Pimpri Chinchwad Municipal Corporation had implemented LBT from April 1 after abolishing octroi The traders had then started the agitationdespite a Bombay High Court earlier rejecting their plea that LBT regime be not implemented We have met the chief minister and we think he is sympathetic to the issues we have raised Ramnath Sonawane (the mediating committee member) doesnt have any authority The CM can stay the implementation with an order and we are hopeful that he will take the right decision?
