Continuous Comprehensive Evaluation (CCE)

CBSE has taken a bold step in the right direction in making the education system more holistic in its approach. CCE i.e., Continuous and Comprehensive Evaluations aims at making evaluation an integral part of the teaching-learning process as well as focuses on all round development of the personality of the learner. The CCE scheme brings about a paradigm shift from examination to effective pedagogy.

Students will be evaluated in the ’Scholastics’ as well as ‘Co-Scholastic’ areas. Scholastic refers to those aspects which are related to intellect or the brain and includes assessment of learners in curricular subjects, assignments, project work, practical and oral work etc.

CCE contains Formative and Summative Assessment. Formative Assessment is the process used by a teacher to continuously monitor student’s progress in a non-threating and supportive environment. It is diagnostic and remedial while Summative Assessment is the assessment carried out at the end of a cause of instruction and indicated and measures how much a student has learnt. It is usually used for certification purpose.

The term’ Co-Scholastic’ refers to those aspects which are related to hand and heart. These include psychomotor skills, physical development, life skills, attitude, values, interests and participation in co-curricular activities. Life skills are the abilities that help the students in improving their personal and social qualities. Some of these qualities include self-esteem, effective communication skills, confidence, compassion, respect and empathy for others and creative thinking. Attitudes reflect an individual’s disposition or tendency to respond to a given stimulus (idea, situation). Values are ideas and beliefs that one holds as special, e.g.: Honesty, displaying empathy, trust etc.

It is mandatory in our role as educators to not only inculcate good values but also develop positive attitudes in the students in order to help them to become responsible global citizens.

The CCE in classes I-X is intended to provide holistic profile of the learner through evaluation of both scholastic and co-scholastic areas spread over two terms each during two academic years. Two terms are from April-September and October-March.


Evaluation of Scholastic Areas

Each term will have two formatives assessments and one summative assessment for valuation of scholastic areas.

Formative assessment will not only be a pen and paper test, it may also include face to face activities, crossword, role play, listening skill, activity, spell throw, quizzes, conversation, interview, oral testing, visual testing, projects, practical and assignments.

Summative assessment will be in the form of pen-paper test to be conducted by the school at the end of each term. Curriculum and syllabus of this assessment is decided by the board but the evaluation of answer sheets will be done by school teachers themselves.
