The Central Board of Secondary Education proposed to introduce the ‘Open book examination’ system in classes 9 and 10 starting year 2014.
The students here would be informed about the relevant chapters on which questions would be set. The students would not be allowed to carry textbooks in the exam hall, however they would be apprised in advance about the chapters and paragraphs from where the analytical question would be quizzed.
The idea is to introduce the system in Summative Assessment 2 and a component of the assessment will also be based on the text material which will be supplied to students before.
This is to decrease the pressure on the students and eliminate the rote memorization in all.
CBSE would also bring out some guidance materials for students and parents to solve their queries and to help them in preparing for the examination. The teachers would soon be trained using multiple modes.
