CONTINUOUS AND COMPREHENSIVE EVALUATION

Continuous and Comprehensive Evaluation (CCE) refers to a system of evaluation that covers all aspects of students' development. It is a curricular initiative, attempting to shift emphasis from testing to holistic learning.

The major focus 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 a learner's profi le—including both the scholastic and non-scholastic areas of personality development.

For the scholastic aspect, the NCERT proposes six assessments.


Type of assessment Percentage of weightage in academic session Month Term wise weightage
FIRST TERM
Formative Assessment-1 10% April-May FA-1+2=20%
Formative Assessment-2 10% July-August  
Summative Assessment-1 30% September SA-1=30%

Formative Assessment-3 10% October-November FA-3+4=20%
Formative Assessment-4 10% January-February  
Summative Assessment-2 30% March SA-2=30%
       
Total Formative Assessments=FA-1+FA-2+FA-3+FA-4=40%
Summative Assessments=SA-1+SA-2=60%

Formative assessment is a tool used by the teacher to continuously monitor student progress in a supportive and non-threatening environment. The key factors involved in formative assessment are—


Plan, in detail, for all assessment
Provide effective feedback to the students.
Involve students actively in their own learning.
Adjust teaching to take account of the results of assessment.
Recognise the profound influence assessment has on the motivation and self esteem of the students, both of which are crucial influences in learning.
Need for students to be able to access themselves and understand how to improve.

In order to fulfi ll the objectives of Formative Assessment (FA) and to enable students to improve performance, teachers need to use a variety of assessment tools during the course of their teaching. It is mandatory that teachers use at least 3 to 4 different assessment tools during the term for Formative Assessment. The list below will give some idea of the variety possible in the English language classroom.

Languages
  • Oral and Listening -these could be listening comprehension, prepared speech, conversation or dialogue
  • Written assignments - Short, long, question - answers, creative writing, reports, newspaper articles, diary entries, poetry etc.
  • Speeches - debates, oratory, recitation etc.
  • Research projects which involve - information gathering, deductive reasoning, analysis and synthesis and a presentation using a variety of forms including the use of the IT.
  • Pairwork/groupwork.
  • Peer assessment

For more recommendations and information on formative assessment, please visit the link http://www.cbse.nic.in/cce/cce-manual/chapter_3.pdf. In CCE, development of co-scholastic aspects of the personality, such as Life Skills, Attitudes and Values, participation and achievement in Co-Curricular activities as well as Health and Physical Education, need to be considered alongside the scholastic aspect. This is to ensure that the curriculum is truly
comprehensive.

Life Skills are abilities that will help students to be successful in living a productive life. Learning and practising Life Skills help students to improve their personal and social qualities such as self esteem, compassion, respect, confi dence etc. The Life Skills may be segregated into three core groups as shown here.


             
  LIFE SKILLS  
  THINKING SKILLS   SOCIAL SKILLS   EMOTIONAL SKILLS  

 

  • Self Awareness
  •  
  • Interpersonal relationships
  •  
  • Managing Feelings/emotions

  • Problem Solving

  • Decision Making

  • Communication Skills

    CCE notes for Buzzword is the support material to aid teachers with the CCE mode of assessment. CCE compliant tasks have been chosen from the Buzzword Main Coursebooks and Literature Readers for Classes 3 to 8.

    Tasks have been chosen from different skill areas like, Communication, Writing, Life Skills, Project, etc, and they include individual, pair and group work. Assessment criteria have been identifi ed for each task and method of evaluation provided to help the teacher assess the performance of every individual student.

    Evaluation thus becomes an integral part built into the teaching-learning process and it becomes continuous like both teaching and learning. Continuous and Comprehensive Evaluation (CCE) will help lead to diagnosis, remediation and enhancement of learning.
