We discuss a stochastic closure for the equation of motion satisfied by multiscale correlation functions in the framework of shell models of turbulence. We present a plausible closure scheme to calculate the anomalous scaling exponents of structure functions by using the exact constraints imposed by the equation of motion. We present an explicit calculation for fifth-order scaling exponent by varying the free parameter entering in the nonlinear term of the model. The same method applied to the case of shell models for Kraichnan passive scalar provides a connection between the concept of zero-modes and time-dependent cascade processes.
