The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) has implemented the scheme of Continuous and Comprehensive Evaluation (CCE) for all students till class XII. The scheme envisages that every learner is to be evaluated for what he/she does throughout the year, according to his or her own abilities and intelligence, rather than in a one-shot three hour external examination at the end of the academic session.
Primarily aims at bringing a paradigm shift from examination centered learning to holistic education. It not only intends to make assessment an integral part of the teaching- learning process, but also improves class- room deliberations resulting in meaningful and productive learning.
It is our belief that evaluation should act as a positive input for improving the teaching learning process and not as a deterrent. The report card of evaluation should reflect not only the scholastic aspects of the learner, but also life skills acquisition, personality attributes, behaviour, interests, attitudes, values and proficiency in indoor as well as outdoor co- curricular activities. It should facilitate in unraveling talent and reflect the true picture of the growth and profile of a young learner.
