Examination Reforms and Continuous and Comprehensive Evaluation (CCE) in the Central Board of Secondary Education
“The Central Board of Secondary Education introduced Continuous and Comprehensive Evaluation (CCE) in Primary Classes in 2004 (Circular No. 5/18/25/04). The achievement records and its formats was also circulated for Classes I to V with the objective of facilitating holistic learning in the school. The focus was on identifying the talents of the learner and empowering with positive inputs. The Board recommended a five point rating scale, it also recommended the elimination of the pass/fail system at the primary classes (Circular No. 31/04/21/05). The Board has also followed it up by extending this scheme up to classes VI to VIII and developed a CCE card on School Based Assessment for the same Circular No./2/06).
The scheme of Continuous and Comprehensive Evaluation (CCE) will be now further strengthened in all affiliated schools from October 2009. The Class IX students will be assessed through the CCE by the school itself.
The AEES has also proposed to strengthen the Continuous and Comprehensive Evaluation CCE) scheme from the academic session 2010-11 in all its schools and in classes from I to X as suggested by CBSE (APC-2009-10). So long as further instructions/changes are not received from CBSE the following pattern of examination will be followed in AEES in all the classes.
What is this system?
Continuous and Comprehensive Evaluation refers to a system of school based assessment that covers all aspects of student’s development. The comprehensive component of CCE takes care of assessment of all round development of the child’s personality. It includes assessment in scholastic and co-scholasticaspects in pupils’ growth. Students will be evaluated both in scholastic and non-scholastic areas.

  1. As per the new pattern, students will be assessed in two areas - Scholastic and Co-scholastic.

For assessment of the scholastic areas, the academic year is divided in two terms and two types of tests will be conducted to assess the academic subjects as given in Table 1 below.
Table 1

Formative Assessment
The formative assessment is a tool for a teacher to continuously monitor the progress of a student. The assessment (in secondary) may include quizzes, conversations, oral testing, visual testing, projects, practical, assignments, class test, class-work, home work etc. The teacher is free to take any number of formative tests in his/her subject during the year but only four formative tests will be taken into account in each subject. Performance of the students will b reflected in grades.
In primary classes the formative tests will be in the form of –Dictation, oral test, class test, home work, class work, assignments & projects (III to V), Memory test, Story telling, Quiz (III to V), Elocution (III to V) or any other tool found suitable by the teacher. The formative tests are purely informal, however, the teachers will inform the date and time of test before hand. These tests will be taken in the regular periods only.
Summative Assessment
The Summative assessment is the terminal assessment of performance at the end of instruction. Under the end term Summative assessment, the students will be tested internally. The Summative assessment will be in the form of a pen-paper test conducted by the schools themselves. It will be conducted at the end of each term twice in a year. The schedule for the same is given below.

Based on these evidences, interpretation and judgment, the progress of the learner is arrived at and decisions taken. There will be no written examination as far as co-scholastic area is concerned.
