The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) has reminded schools that it shall be focusing on collecting evidence of assessment (EOA) this year as well. Schools are randomly chosen and have to send evidences of Co- Scholastic assessment along with those of formative and summative assessments of Scholastic areas.
In a letter to schools the CBSE has informed that “though in the CCE Certificate of School- based Assessment, Co- Scholastic assessment is shown to be reported only once in an Academic Session, the process of assigning and conducting activities, making observation, recording evidences and maintaining anecdotal and other records will take place throughout the year. The Schools are advised to include the reporting of Co Scholastic Assessment also in the Report Card of First Term of both the Std IX and X”.
About 50% schools shall be chosen randomly by the board in each city and they will be asked to send in their EOA. In case of languages, English/ Hindi, it could be possible that the particular course, (English Communicative/ Language and Literature) or (Hindi Course A/B) assigned to the school is not offered to the students at all or very few students may have opted it. In such a case, the school can send the evidences in the course offered by them or opted by most of them.
