The study aimed at identifying and studying Extreme Cases with respect to the award of internal assessment scores by different teacher-training institutions affiliated to Himachal Pradesh University for the years 2008, 2009 and 2010 in selected eight courses of Bachelor of Education Programme. The sample for the study included all the candidates who passed their B.Ed. examination during the academic sessions 2007-08, 2008-09 and 2009-10. The results indicated that there is an excessive tendency towards over-marking in internal assessment and also that the internal assessment scores mostly fall towards the higher end of the scale in Bachelor of Education Programme run by Himachal Pradesh University. The over marking may be ascribed to the facts that (i) the prescribed internal assessment policy is vague, (ii) there is absence of moderation policy either at institutional or university level, and (iii) the teachers or institutions are not accountable for under or over marking.
