A precursor to the ‘CBSE-CAER International Conference 2014’, a major initiative by the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) in collaboration with the Centre for Assessment, Evaluation & Research (CAER), to further augment the education assessment system in the country, was held here today.
Organised jointly by CBSE and CAER, the conference focussed on the objectives and goals of the alliance. This alliance is a major initiative by the Board to further enhance the reforms it has introduced in the education assessment system.
Speaking at the event, Shri Vineet Joshi, Chairman, CBSE said, “The conference will witness participation from national and international experts in education assessment and focuses on sharing information and best practices. This is a major step towards achieving CBSE’s goal of making the education system and its assessment more student-centric.”
Participants of the conference will be able to identify and gain the skills that are necessary to carry forward assessment activities in their professional fields, identify national and international resources that will help meet their assessment needs and develop fruitful partnerships that will promote international exchange of ideas.
Explaining the idea behind the conference, Professor Jim Tognolini, Vice President, Research & Assessment, Pearson, the brain behind CAER, said, “Marks have no meaning. We need to create standards (instead of marks) for students, which reflect what they know/ are capable of doing as per the standard granted to them.”
The ‘CBSE CAER International Conference 2014’ will be a two-day event and will bring together, policy makers, school educator and noted experts in the field of assessments and provide a platform for large scale knowledge sharing and dissemination. The conference will be held from April 28 to 29, 2014 in New Delhi.
