CCE - Frequently Asked Questions - FAQs | Examinations and Continuous and Comprehensive Evaluation 2014-15



Introduction : Under the mandate of 'Right to Education Act, of India' the Continuous and comprehensive evaluation (CCE) is an process of assessment. Many state governments in India, as well the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) in India, have introduced CCE for students of sixth to 10th and 12th grades in some schools.

The CCE insures the evaluation of every aspect of the child during his or her presence at the school. If implemented true to its objectives, this may be instrumental in reducing the pressure on the child during/before examinations as he or she will have to sit for multiple tests throughout the year, of which no test or the syllabus covered will be repeated at the end of the year, whatsoever. The CCE method is claimed to bring enormous changes from the traditional chalk and talk method of teaching, provided it is implemented accurately.
This new system of evaluation, replaces student's marks by grades which are evaluated through a series of curricular and extra-curricular evaluations along with academics. The aim is to decrease the workload on the student by means of continuous evaluation by taking number of small tests throughout the year in place of single test at the end of the academic program. Only Grades are awarded to students based on work experience skills, dexterity, innovation, steadiness, teamwork, public speaking, behavior, etc. to evaluate and present an overall measure of the student's ability. This helps the students who are not good in academics to show their talent in other fields such as arts, humanities, sports, music, athletics, and also helps to motivate the students who have a thirst of knowledge.

  1. We readily admit the importance of character building in education. But we take the word “Character” lightly and treat the concept casually. So, we pay scant attention to “character” in recruiting teachers, who are to serve as character builders. Character building seems to be just about the only task that we expect to be accomplished by those whose suitability for it is presumed to be immaterial. This indifference to character bedevils education at all levels.

In Europe winter brings with it extreme cold, and food is in short supply. Since most animals can't live in such conditions, they either, sleep through winter or migrate. Of the various migratory creatures the urge to migrate is very strong in certain birds. For example, the tern can reproduce only during a two-month period. During those two months the tern lives in the areas near the North Pole. In the ten months between this time and the next, it flies all the way from the North Pole to the South Pole, and then back north again.
