The rating procured after evaluating CBSE’s subjects all across the country revealed a fairly low education standard in many schools, with no much improvement than before.
The average rating of the CBSE's subjects being 49.8% and 9.11% indicating the need of improvement directly points fingers at the quality of education regulated by the board.
Likewise, the same state for the school level assessment, after its analysis revealed that near about 35% of CBSE schools do not follow strict norms as well as board's marking schemes while evaluating the student’s Summative Assessments, also 38.1% schools don't take up sufficient tasks and tools during co-scholastic assessment.
This first report released by CBSE on Continuous and Comprehensive Evaluation (CCE) which was introduced in the year 2009 has shown that the school performance has brought mixed results.
On a positive note, improvement in the cores attained by students as well as the overall pass percentage since 2010 has raised by 9.48 percentage points that made a record by reaching till 98.76% in 2013. However, on the flip side, CBSE authority has noticed that the general classroom teaching methodology is still inadequate.
Near about 55% schools give average quality tasks to and also their difficulty level is just average or even below average in 86% of schools. Schools have also been found not adhering to the marking schemes resulting in inflated marks/grades in the Summative Assessments.
Parents and teachers are however happy after finding that students who did not appear in class X board (2011) examination and go for school based exam had performed better in their class XII Board exams than those who wrote the external exam in class X. The evidence was collected from some 5,552 schools.
Continuous and Comprehensive Evaluation (CCE) was started in CBSE schools since 2000 although the method was added to the secondary level from 2009 onward. Currently the system is being followed in approximately 14,647 both government and private unaided schools.
