CBSE decides to do away with PSA classes for Class IX and XI

Nov 2, 2015 18:08 IST

    The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) has decided to scrap the Problem Solving Assessment (PSA) test for classes IX and XI from the 2015-2016 academic year.

    PSA was a logical reasoning exam that was introduced by the CBSE  from 2012-2013 academic year for class IX and XI, with the purpose of testing the students' critical thinking abilities. The test was held in place of the Formative Assessment - IV. Marks scored in the PSA test in class IX were counted in class X as part of a summative assessment.

    CBSE schools on friday received a circular from the board's controller of examination. It said, "The board has decided to do away with the conduct of PSA in classes IX & XI from the session 2015-16 and asked the schools to conduct the formative assessment IV for students who were in Class IX in 2014-2015 academic year and could not take the PSA or are desirous to improve their earlier scores. The higher marks of the two will be counted."
