CBSE seeks feedback on CCE.Also see for CBSE circular asks students, parents, and schools for their feedback on CCE.
The students requested Union HRD Minister to bring back the board exam system which was made optional by Kapil Sibal, former education minister, in 2011.
The students of CBSE schools have asked the HRD minister to put back the compulsory Class 10 board examination. The same had been made optional few years back by the Kapil Sibal, the ex-Education Minister. These students also criticized the Continuous and Comprehensive Evaluation (CCE), more so the implementation than the concept. The CCE was introduced in 2009 as a substitute to the conventional exams.
The tool relies on various metrics including the performance of students from Classes 9 to 12 in the continuous and comprehensive evaluation (CCE) and problem solving assessments (PSA). Ratings will be provided to schools as well as the students at a scholastic and co-scholastic basis.
The CCE was implemented in 500 government primary and upper primary schools across Haryana. The program aimed to quantify the overall impact of CCE and NGO Pratham’s Learning Enhancement Program (LEP) that fetched teachers with the “right tools and space” to reach out to individual students based on their competency level.
This highly stressful situation for both parents and students has been mainly attributed to a mismatch between demand and supply. As the hike in cutoffs becomes inevitable owing to students scoring more marks, the number of seats still remains static. Following CBSE’s footsteps, various other boards have magnified their marks by allowing unusually unscientific moderation marks and grace marks.
“With such an option open, students are not aware of the importance of these exams. Also, there is a general attitude of callousness among parents and teachers. Hence, it is always better to stick to just one common exam conducted by the CBSE Board,” said experts in the field, the Indian Express reports.
The two workshops were divided into 23 sessions and retrained the teachers on different aspects of CCE including both the assessments, value based education, reporting and recording, gender sensitivity etc. According to Prof. B.L. Handoo, the schools should properly assess their specific books to determine whether they are gender neutral. The content is most of the books were found to be gender biased.
