"CIRCULAR Ė 1"
We would like to brief you about the Continuous and Comprehensive Evaluation (CCE) which the State has introduced
- To reduce stress on children
- To make evaluation comprehensive and
- To provide space for creative teaching.
Each term of an academic year would have a Formative and a Summative Assessment.
Formative Assessment is the assessment that happens throughout each term. It has two components.
FA(a) and FA(b).
FA(a) is based on the teacherís observation / interaction of the studentís creative skill based effort which will be valued for 20 marks.
FA(b) involves simple written work, slip tests of 5 marks each. This is curricular content based assessment for 20 marks.
The other kind of assessment is Summative Assessment. It is formal, individual, written and time scheduled for 60 marks.
Each Summative Assessment would only assess the syllabus covered during that Term. This test is conducted at the end of each term.
It is proposed to award grades after a mark based assessment in scholastic areas in order to avoid unnecessary competition among students.
As the Trimester pattern has been introduced from this year, the Continuous Comprehensive Evaluation system will be an integral part of the Trimester system.
