The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) is planning to introduce a continuous and comprehensive evaluation (CCE) schedule in practical exams for class XI and XII. The current practice of having year-end practical examination will converted into periodic assessment with each evaluation accounted for when the final marks are given. According to CBSE, “The problem with termend practical exams is that students focus only on the theory part of the exam while ignoring the practicals.”
‘The plan is to make the exercise periodic and evaluate students probably on a quarterly basis. The CCE is a means to record how much students have learnt in their practicals on a continuous basis. This is primarily to focus on the importance of practical exams, which are not taken seriously by students during the whole year,” said CBSE consultant R P Sharma quoted in the Times of India
A group led by CBSE consultant R P Sharma is working out the modalities to implement the CCE system as the Board is likely to introduce this system for Class XI from the 2012-13 academic session and in class XII from 2013-14.
Students will have to identify various topics and complete research or project work which will be evaluated during the assessment period just like any other term-end exam. Apart from school teachers, an external teacher from the CBSE will monitor the process.
