Central Board of Secondary Education gives emphasis on school based continuous and comprehensive evaluation (CCE). It emphasis on the development of necessary personality attributes and other co-scholastic areas along with desired levels of attainment in the scholastic domain that help the young learners grow into better human beings.

Besides fulfilling the educational requirements CBSE helps the children to explore their hidden talents.

The CCE pattern includes continuous evaluation throughout the years. Students are evaluated and their problematic area is detected and remedial measures are taken. ‘Pen Paper Test ‘ is not the only criteria to educate the child.

CBSE emphasizes on areas which includes Educational Skills, Emotional Skills, Social Skills and Attitude towards School, Institute and Teachers.

Here is the marking scheme for CBSE.

FA- Formative Assessment

FA for each term will include pen and paper assessment and non- pen and paper assessment. F A is carried out by the teacher to monitor the student’s progress continuously in a non threatening, friendly and supportive environment. The assessment includes oral questions, conversational skills, projects, assignments, quizzes, research work, etc.

SA- Summative Assessment

The term-end examination SA (SA1 and SA2) for both the terms will be pen and paper assessments. SA is carried out at the end of the term. It measures how much a student has learned from the course.

CCE- Continuous Comprehensive Evaluation

The primary purpose of the CCE is to reduce stress and anxiety which builds up most of the time during the examination. This has many adverse influences on young students. The CCE will automatically bring down the dropout rate and will increase the performance of students.
