CCE or continuous and comprehensive Evaluation scheme refers to a school-based evaluation of students that covers all the aspects of a student's development. Continuous means regular assessments, analysis of learning gaps, applying corrective measures, retesting and giving feedback to teachers and students for their self-evaluation, etc. Comprehensive, on the other hand, attempts to cover both the scholastic and the co-scholastic aspects of a student's growth and development-with both these aspects of the evaluation process being assessed through Formative and Summative assessments. FORMATIVE ASSESSMENT is used continuously by the teacher to monitor the student's progress in a supportive environment.
In FORMATIVE ASSESSMENT, emphasis is more on other activities instead of written examination. These include quizzes, interviews, conversation, visual testing, oral testing, projects, practicals and assignments.
SUMMATIVE ASSESSMENT is in the form of a written test conducted by the school at the end of each term.
The Examination and Evaluation system being adopted by the school for classes VI to X is based on the guidelines of CCE. The entire academic session will be divided into two terms spanning from April to September and October to March. Students will be assessed in both Scholastic and Co-scholastic areas.
- Scholastic aspects include curricular areas or subject specific areas.
- Co-scholastic aspects include Life-skills, Co-curricular activities, attitudes and values.
The Scholastic area will be assessed through:-
Formative Assessment - This assesment of the student will be carried out by the Teaching teacher formally and informally.
Formal Activities: - Through Unit Tests, MCQ, projects, class performance, quizzes, Class assignments and home assignments.
Informal Activities :- Through oral work, field trips.
The best of the various activities will be taken for each formative assessment.
Summative Assessment - Through Terminal Examination to be conducted at the end of each term.
Formative Assessment : 20% per Term
Summative assessment: Term I - 30% and Term II - 30%
The Students will receive their final scores in terms of grades instead of numerical marks.
For promotion to next class it shall be mandatory for the students to secure minimum ‘D’ grade in aggregate as well as in all major subjects viz. English, Hindi, Sanskrit, French,Maths, Science and Social Science.
Nine-point grading scale for measuring Scholastic achievements will be followed.
As per CCE the school will now follow semester system :-• Syllabus will be divided Term-wise and not carried forward to the next Term.
• Activities in all subjects will be conducted in their respective subject period.
• In case a child is absent for an activity, then the subject teacher will ensure that he is tested for the same at a convenient time.
• One Test and one Assignment will be taken on a periodical basis which will form a part of FormativeAssessment. It shall be mandatory for a student to take these tests. In case a student misses the Test/Assignment on medical grounds, he/she will be re-tested within two weeks on a Saturday with prior intimation taking into consideration the time-schedule of the school. In case the student misses the re-test on the scheduled date he/she will be marked ‘Zero’. Please Note: NO neutralization of marks will be done except in case of ‘OD’ (on duty).
To promote Project Based Learning. Two projects per term have been made mandatory(one per Term before SA-I and SA-II respectively).
For classes IX and X - PSA (Problem Solving Assessment) conducted by the Board will form a part of their FA4.
For classes VI to VIII- Regular assignments for PSA will be conducted to prepare the students for HOTS/PSA.
