The Goa Board of Secondary and Higher Secondary Education has agreed with the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) to assess, evaluate and research as well as monitor its Continuous Comprehensive Evaluation (CCE) system for the Class IX and X, if it gets implemented in the new academic year.
The Goa Board committee submitted a report, which is still pending with the Goa state government, to sanction the extension of the CCE system of assessment in Class IX and X.
The CCE system in the state currently is running up to Class VIII, however since it faced some criticism that points at teachers for not being able to implement the system correctly, the system did not get implement in higher classes.
Hence for this matter, experts will be sent by the ‘The Centre for Assessment, Evaluation and Research’ which is a body of CBSE and Pearson Foundation, which will conduct awareness programs for Goa senior teachers regarding CCE system. The body also undertakes trainings for CBSE teachers spread nationwide.
The program will held in Goa on January 16 and 17 in which senior teachers and Goa Board's board of studies will be present.
Goa Board chairperson Jose Remedios Rebello saidafter this workshop feedback will be obtained from senior teachers as well as members of the board of studies, followed by the body training teachers of Class IX and X for CCE execution, if they found it worthwhile.
The initial plan of the Goa Board is to guide 50 senior teachers on how to implement CCE in Class IX and X effectively. Subsequently, those senior teachers will train rest of the state’s teachers, aimed at guiding the proper implementation of CCE.
The major cost involved in the workshops and training will occur from the experts' commuting to Goa from New Delhi.
