Teachers that are employed in CBSE schools of Rajasthan were recently skilled at 2 workshops carried out by CBSE for appropriate execution of the Continuous & Comprehensive Evaluation initiated this year onwards.
The Continuous & Comprehensive Evaluation workshop was organized by the Central Board of Secondary Education empanelled agency after it came to effect that many schools are finding it hard to apply CCE in true spirit. As per CBSE reports, number of schools were found making gaffe in formative and summative assessments.
The summative assessment is defined as the evaluation of student’s learning at the end of the session. However, formative assessment is monitoring students to help them in recognizing problems & providing elucidations.
Some schools, on the other hand, were using erroneous means for analysis for formative assessment generally with unit tests. They were uncertain about the tools and activities which can be used to decide formative assessment.
The workshop had twenty three sessions on different aspects of Continuous & Comprehensive Evaluation, including summative and formative assessments, value-based education, life skills, reporting, gender sensitivity & recording.
Books approved in various schools were found to be gender-biased, clued a resource person Professor B. L. Handoo. During the workshop, teachers were elucidated how to put into practice the problem- solving assessments introduced by the Central Board of Secondary Education to evaluate students in Classes 9th & 11th on qualitative logic, language conventions and quantitative logic.
Professor B. L. Handoo further pointed out lack of resources, dealing with large - class size & bewilderment over the CCE concept have done the damage & the victory rests on teachers who are skilled sufficiently well for the appropriate implementation of the resources.
Another circular of CBSE says that preface of general studies in the classes will have exceptional focus on defense services - Navy, Air force, Indian Army and other paramilitary forces.
