Evaluation System

EVALUATION SYSTEM
(as per CBSE Rules)

We are following CCE in the Junior and Senior School.
The CCE scheme covers scholastic and co-scholastic areas along with four formative assessments and two summative assessments, spread over one academic year.

  • Students are required to appear for all the tests scheduled for the year.
  • In case of absence due to illness, a doctor’s certificate will be required.
  • Absence from tests for any other reason, therefore, will not be permitted.
  • The student’s promotion is mainly based on the Continuous Comprehensive Evaluation. It includes various other aspects of child development along with Scholastic and Co-scholastic areas. Other aspects include Life Skills, Attitude and Values, Health and Physical Education etc.
  • Students will get only grades for their performance.
  • Students found using unfair means during the Formative Assessment and Summative Assessments will be marked zero in that subject. These students will not be eligible for any academic awards or school appointments.

Evaluation for Classes: I – IV

  • No terminal examination would be held in these classes. Weekly worksheets for all subjects according to the schedule given to students.
  • The student’s progress in oral and written class work and projects will be assessed and recorded under the Continuous Comprehensive Evaluation Scheme (CCE).
  • A grading system is used for all academic subjects in Classes I – IV.

CCE System in Classes: V – X

  • There will be four Formative Assessments and two Summative Assessments for students of Classes V to X. The annual weightage is FA 40%, SA1 30% and SA2 30%.
  • The student’s progress in oral and written class work/home work/projects will be assessed and recorded under the Continuous Comprehensive Evaluation Scheme (CCE).
  • The weightage of this evaluation will be as follows
  • 1st Term (April – September)

  2. Formative Assessment II (FA2)
    • MCQ and Subjective
    • Assessment of any other activity
  3. Summative Assessment I (SA1)
    • Paper and Pen test

10% (FA1) + 10% (FA2) +30% (SA1) = 50%

  1. Formative Assessment III (FA3)
    • MCQ and Subjective
    • Assessment of any other activity
  2. Formative Assessment IV (FA4)

10% (FA3) + 10% (FA4) +30% (SA2) = 50%

Total assessment of the year (1st Term & 2nd Term) = 50% + 50% = 100%

It may please be noted that Formative Assessment includes Project work, Assignments, Homework, Class work, conversation, interviews, experiments, recitation, dramatisation, mental maths, reading, quizzes, participation and achievements in co-curricular activities, Health & Physical Education and Life Skills.

Prevailing CBSE Practices

The major emphasis of CCE is on the continuous growth of students ensuring their intellectual, emotional, physical. cultural and social development and therefore will not be merely limited to assessment of learner’s scholastic attainments. It uses assessment as a means of motivating learners in further programmes to provide information for arranging feedback and follow up work to improve upon the learning in the classroom and to present a comprehensive picture of learner’s profile.

The CBSE has brought in a sea change in the present education system. It is looking into the holistic development of the students. CBSE is preparing the students to face competition with the rest of the world in higher education. Keeping this concept in mind CBSE has introduced ASL in English language and OTBA

Assessment of Speaking and Listening Skill (ASL)

English as medium of communication has acquired an important role in bringing the world together. Although all language skills need to be integrated in the English language curriculum, speaking and listening should be fostered to equip children with better communication skills. Therefore, there is a formal testing of speaking and listening skills in English for Classes V to XI.

OTBA

To cater to the varied abilities of individual learners, multiple modes of assessment need to be provided. Therefore CBSE has introduced Open Test Based Assessment (OTBA) for class IX, to be conducted in Summative Assessment II in all five subjects viz. English, Hindi, Maths, Science and Social Science. These are meant to enhance analytical and theoretical skills, HOTS and reasoning. Thus moving away from rote learning.

In class XI it will be applicable to Economics, Biology and Geography only.

This will be a part of SA2 / Annual Examination of Class IX / XI.

Evaluation for Class XI

  • There will be two terms in a year.
  • In one academic year students will appear for four unit tests and two terminal examinations. The annual weightage is Unit Tests 20%, First Term 40% and Second Term (full syllabus) 40%
  • Grades will be given for NLM & activities, class work / homework / project work throughout the year.

Evaluation for Class XII

  • CBSE Board Examination
