The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) has decided to establish a team of experts to assess the students’ performance in schools. The step will help improve the quality of education, the CBSE believes.
Becoming a part of School Quality Assessment and Accreditation (SQAA), the CBSE thinks that the standard of education in the schools affiliated to the Board will improve.
“While quality assessment plays a vital role in school education everywhere in the world, the CBSE will be forming its core team of human agents to gauge the same,” the CBSE stated.
The SQAA manual quotes the CBSE specifying that the team of peer assessors will involve the experienced members for them to carry out an external evaluation.
CBSE director Sadhana Parashar said, “the CBSE aims at forming a team of principals, whether working or retired, and educators with a hand-on experience and rich insight in the process of school education. This will be the most effective way to improve the quality of education in India.”
An online screening test with multiple choice questions on SQAA manual and a case study will be held to select the peer assessors. Taking such a step will make the process more transparent. With an online test, it will be easier to appoint peer assessors who are well versed with SQAA. It will assure maximum results and increase the quality education.
