A new programme has been brought into action by the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) to asses whether the schools have been successful in implementing the Continuous and Comprehensive Evaluation (CCE). According to the circular issued by CBSE across India, the school principals have been asked to act as 'peer assessors' and act as monitors responsible for capacity building and learning by gathering experiences from all the schools.
The circular said that this would be implemented with the help of a 'monitor/mentor framework'. Under the system, the principal of each schools will be assigned around six to eight schools that are in their own neighborhood. Principals of government schools would be allotted government schools whereas principals of public schools would be allotted public schools. The principals are to visit the allotted schools and record their observations on the functioning of the school and classrooms, information gained through interaction with teachers and students. Additionally, as mentors they are requried to help in giving schools suggestions and guidance to help them improve in the requried areas. Based on the assessment, one of the schools would be awarded as the Best CCE School and a mentor would be chosen for the Best Mentor award in March, 2011.
