The Staff Selection Commission (SSC) has implemented revised guidelines for the evaluation of Stenography Skill Test Scripts in both English and Hindi. These new guidelines have been made available on the Commission's website under the 'Candidate’s Corner' section, with immediate effect. The detailed framework of the revised evaluation process categorizes mistakes into "Full" and "Half" categories for assessment:

 Full Mistakes
1. Omissions: Each missing word or figure will be counted as a separate mistake.
2. Substitutions: Every instance of replacing a correct word with a wrong one will count as a mistake.
3. Additions: Any word, figure, or symbol not present in the dictated passage will be marked as an error.
4. Repetition: If a word is repeated unintentionally, it will be considered a full mistake.
5. Incomplete Words: Every incomplete word will be counted.
6. Left-over Words: Any words not typed from the passage.
7. Abbreviations & Capitalization: Using incorrect expansions or typing in all capital letters will be deemed as full mistakes.

 Half Mistakes
1. Spelling Errors  
2. Singular-Plural Confusion
3. Punctuation Mistakes: Missing or misplaced full stops.
4. Case Errors: Using lowercase at the beginning of a sentence.
5. Proper Noun Capitalization Errors: Not capitalizing proper nouns correctly.

Additionally, these guidelines specify methods to calculate errors in the Stenography Skill Test and provide word counts for varying speeds and durations of the test.

SSC emphasized that alternate spellings/forms of words will be acceptable, clarifying that multiple correct forms will not be considered errors. These revised guidelines apply to both English and Hindi Stenography Skill Tests wherever applicable. The error percentage will be rounded off to two decimal places for accurate assessment.
