CB-1/CCE-1
Continuous and Comprehensive Evaluation
Continuous and Comprehensive Evaluation (CCE) refers to a system of school-based evaluation of
students that covers all aspects of a students' development. It is a developmental process of a
child which emphasizes on two fold objectives. These objectives are continuity in evaluation on
one hand and assessment of broad based learning and behavioral outcomes on the other.
The term 'continuous' is meant to emphasize that evaluation of identified aspects of students'
'growth and development' is a continuous process rather than an event, built into the total
teaching-learning process and spread over the entire span of academic session. It means
regularity of assessment, diagnosis of learning gaps, use of corrective measures and feedback of
evidence to teachers and students for their self evaluation.

T
O

The second term 'comprehensive' means that the scheme attempts to cover both the scholastic
and the co-scholastic aspects of students' growth and development. Since abilities, attitudes and
aptitudes can manifest themselves in forms other than the written word, the term refers to
application of a variety of tools and techniques (both testing and non-testing) and aims at
assessing a learner's development in areas of learning like:

Knowledge

Understanding/Comprehension

Application

Analysis

Evaluation

Creativity

L
I
P

Objectives of CCE are:

To help develop cognitive, psychomotor and affective skills.

To lay emphasis on thought process and de-emphasise memorization.

To make evaluation an integral part of teaching-learning process.

To use evaluation for improvement of students' achievement and teaching learning


strategies on the basis of regular diagnosis followed by remedial instruction.

To use evaluation as a quality control device to maintain desired standard of performance.

To determine social utility, desirability or effectiveness of a programme and take


appropriate decisions about the learner, the process of learning and the learning
environment.

To make the process of teaching and learning a learner-centered activity.

Session - 2

CB-1/CCE-2
Features of CCE:

The 'continuous' aspect of CCE takes care of 'continual' and 'periodicity' aspect of
evaluation.

Continual means assessment of students in the beginning of instruction (placement


evaluation) and assessment during the instructional process (formative evaluation) done
informally using multiple techniques of evaluation.

Periodicity means assessment of performance done frequently at the end of unit/term


(summative)

The 'comprehensive' component of CCE takes care of assessment of all round development
of the child's personality. It includes assessment in Scholastic as well as Co-Scholastic

T
O

aspects of the pupil's growth.

Scholastic aspects include curricular areas or subject specific areas, whereas coscholastic aspects include Life Skills, Co-Curricular Activities, Attitudes, and Values.

Assessment in scholastic areas is done informally and formally using multiple techniques
of evaluation continually and periodically. The diagnostic evaluation takes place at the
end of a unit/term test. The causes of poor performance in some units are diagnosed using

L
I
P

diagnostic tests. These are followed up with appropriate interventions followed by


retesting.

Assessment in Co-Scholastic areas is done using multiple techniques on the basis of


identified criteria, while assessment in Life Skills is done on the basis of Indicators of
Assessment and checklists.

(Source - Examination Reforms, NCERT)

The functions of CCE are:

It helps the teacher to organize effective teaching strategies.

Continuous evaluation helps in regular assessment to the extent and degree of learner's
progress (ability and achievement with reference to specific scholastic and co-scholastic
areas).

Continuous evaluation serves to diagnose weaknesses and permits the teacher to ascertain
an individual learner's strengths and weaknesses and his/her needs. It provides immediate
feedback to the teacher, who can then decide whether a particular unit or concept needs
re-teaching in the whole class or whether a few individuals are in need of remedial
instruction.

By continuous evaluation, children can know their strengths and weaknesses. It provides
the child a realistic self assessment of how he/she studies. It can motivate children to

Session - 2

CB-1/CCE-2
develop good study habits, to correct errors, and to direct their activities towards the
achievement of desired goals. It helps a learner to determine the areas of instruction in
which more emphasis is required.

Continuous and comprehensive evaluation identifies areas of aptitude and interest. It


helps in identifying changes in attitudes, and value systems.

It helps in making decisions for the future, regarding choice of subjects, courses and
careers.

It provides information/reports on the progress of students in scholastic and co-scholastic


areas and thus helps in predicting the future success of the learner. Continuous evaluation
helps in bringing awareness of the achievement to the child, teachers and parents from
time to time. They can look into the probable cause of the fall in achievement if any, and

T
O

may take remedial measures of instruction in which more emphasis is required. Many
times, because of some personal reasons, family problems or adjustment problems, the
children start neglecting their studies, resulting in a sudden drop in their achievement. If
the teacher, child and parents do not come to know about this sudden drop in the
achievement and the neglect in studies by the child and if it continues for a longer period
then it will result in poor achievement and a permanent deficiency in learning for the
child.

CB-1/CCE-3
Different Stages In Assessment
Examination is not assessment; it is only one of the tools of assessment. As we have seen above,
assessment is an integral part of the teaching-learning process and hence cannot be seen as the
final stage in isolation. The overall aim of assessment is to gather information to improve the
teaching-learning process. So it has certain distinct stages.
Stage-1: Gathering information about and evidence of the extent of effectiveness of teaching
and learning
We gather information in a variety of ways, using a number of tools. Observation, conversation
and discussion, assignments, projects, different types of tests etc are some of the methods and
tools we use for collecting information.

T
O

Stage-2: Recording of Information

The information gathered has to be systematically recorded because it constitutes not only rich
inputs that have to be used for improving teaching and learning but also evidence to support the
conclusion we come to about the progress made by the students. In order to make the recording
effective, we must use different recording devices such as learner profile, ancecdotal records,
case studies, report books etc. It is essential that the information is recorded in both quantitative
and qualitative terms along with well thought out and objective observations by the teacher. It is
also necessary to keep samples of students' work as evidence to support the report of the teacher.
The most important aspect of good recording and reporting is that it shows the progress of the
learner in different domains over a period of time.

L
I
P

Stage-3: Analysing and Reporting the Information Collected

The recorded information constitutes valuable feedback that the teacher, the student and the
parents should use to enhance the learning process. To do this, the gathered information has to be
analysed periodically so that the teacher can draw conclusions about how a child is learning and
progressing. Such analysis and the grading that is done is actually a mapping of the progress of
students in a learning environment. Analysis and review also leads to unambiguous statements
about the strengths of every child and the aspects requiring further improvement. The report has
to be communicated to the learners and their parents so that they are able to collaborate with the
teacher to take
the necessary steps for improving learning. It is essential that the child is encouraged to compete
with self rather than with others. One of the key components of engaging students in the
assessment of their own learning is providing them with descriptive feedback as they learn.
Research shows descriptive feedback to be the most effective instructional strategy to move
students forward in their learning. Descriptive feedback provides students with an understanding
of what they are doing well, links to classroom learning and specific input on how to reach the next
step.

CB-1/CCE-4
Stage-4: Using the Information for Improvement
Assessment should result in improvement. Though the student, the teacher and the parents are all
stakeholders in this paradigm, it is the teacher who has to take the initiative to use the analysis of
information on each learner to enhance learning. This calls for reflective practices. Some
questions that the teacher could ask himself/ herself are:
1. Are all the learners involved in the activities of the class?
2. Are there learners who face problems in coping with the pace and flow of the teachinglearning process ?
3. What are their problems and how should I help them?
4. Is there something in my teaching strategy that has to be modified to make the class learn

T
O

better? How should I go about it?

5. Are there some learners who are not challenged by the materials and methods and hence
lose motivation quickly? How should I respond to their special needs?
6.

Are there some lessons/ chapters/ units that pose difficulties to many learners? How
should I add value to these portions of the syllabus?

7.

L
I
P

Have I identified certain common errors, mistakes and instances of lack of conceptual
clarity from the information collected and analysed? How should I go about an effective
programme of remediation?

8. Is my classroom time management effective? What are the changes that I could introduce
to make it more learner and learning oriented?

9. Am I getting adequate support from the school management, my colleagues, the parents
and the community? How can I involve all the stakeholders more

actively in what I am

doing for the benefit of my learners?

10. What are my own needs of professional development? How can I fulfil them in a continuous
manner?.

Such reflective questions will help the teacher modify and refine the programme of teaching to
achieve the learning objectives as well as to enhance his/ her professional competen
cecontinuously.
By now it is well established that learning is a continuous process and it involves informal, formal
and non-formal modes. It is also widely acknowledged that children learn by constructing their

CBSE : Capacity Building Programme on CCE

33

Seesion - 3

CB-1/CCE-4
knowledge and it makes learning a process that takes place within the children rather than
outside. In this paradigm of constructivism, the teacher ought to recognize the importance of
different stages of learning i.e., the initial stage where the existing knowledge of the learner is
seen at the entry level, the second stage where new knowledge is understood and accommodated
with the existing knowledge and the third stage where the constructed knowledge as a 'whole' is
tested by the learner by applying it to real life situations for making sense of the world and the self
and for drawing conclusions, problem solving, decision making etc. What constitutes knowledge
at the third stage automatically becomes the learner's existing knowledge for further learning and
thus it is a cyclical process.
The main purpose of assessment is to enhance the effectiveness of the learning process and hence

T
O

it has to be integrated appropriately with every stage of learning. Since learning is continuous,
assessment also must be continuous. Otherwise the learner will not be able to know whether she/
he is proceeding along the right lines, what is the stage at which he experiences difficulties, what
are the new inputs and strategies that are required to successfully continue the process of
construction of knowledge and what is the help that is expected from the teacher.

L
I

Similarly the teacher also has to know at what stage of learning each learner is at a particular
point of time, what are the changes that are to be made to the teaching strategies to make every
child learn effectively and what further help can be provided.

For instance, when a child in class I comes to school, it is probable that the child has not had any
formal schooling earlier. It does not mean that the child has no prior knowledge because learning,
as has been pointed out earlier, can be through informal and non formal modes too. So the
teacher's duty is to identify the prior knowledge of the child while dealing with a particular
concept or skill. It is only then that the teacher can facilitate the process of construction of
knowledge by each learner.

To ascertain the prior knowledge of the learner, the teacher has to adopt many tools and
techniques, including questions. In the same manner, during the process of learning as well as at
the subsequent stage of application of knowledge to real life, the teacher has to continuously
assess the learner to facilitate a smooth process of accommodation, assimilation and extension.

Scholastic Assessment
The desirable behaviour related to the learner's knowledge, understanding, application,
evaluation, analysis, and creativity in subjects and the ability to apply it in an unfamiliar situation
are some of the objectives in scholastic domain.
In order to improve the teaching learning process, Assessment should be both Formative and
Summative.

Formative Assessment
Formative Assessment is a tool used by the teacher to continuously monitor student progress in a
non threatening, supportive environment. It involves regular descriptive feedback, a chance for
the students to reflect on their performance, take advice and improve upon it. It involves
students' being an essential part of assessment from designing criteria to assessing self or peers. If
used effectively it can improve student performance tremendously while raising the self esteem
of the child and reducing the work load of the teacher.

T
O

Features of Formative Assessment

Diagnostic and remedial

makes the provision for effective feedback

provides the platform for the active involvement of students in their own learning.

enables teachers to adjust teaching to take into account the results of assessment

recognizes the profound influence assessment has on the motivation and self-esteem of
students, both of which are crucial influences on learning

recognizes the need for students to be able to assess themselves and understand how
to improve

builds on students' prior knowledge and experience in designing what is taught.

incorporates varied learning styles into deciding how and what teach.

encourages students to understand the criteria that will be used to judge their work

offers an opportunity to students to improve their work after feedback

helps students to support their peers, and expect to be supported by them

L
I
P

Formative Assessment is thus carried out during a course of instruction for providing continuous
feedback to both the teachers and the learners for taking decisions regarding appropriate
modifications in the transactional procedures and learning activities.

' often means no more than that the assessment is carried out frequently and is planned
at the same time as teaching.' (Black and Wiliam, 1999)

' provides feedback which leads to students recognizing the (learning) gap and closing it
it is forward looking ' (Harlen, 1998)

' includes both feedback and self-monitoring.' (Sadler, 1989)

' is used essentially to feed back into the teaching and learning process.' (Tunstall and
Gipps, 1996)

CB-1/CCE-6
Summative Assessment
Summative Assessment is carried out at the end of a course of learning. It measures or 'sumsup'
how much a student has learned from the course. It is usually a graded test, i.e., it is marked
according to a scale or set of grades. Assessment that is predominantly of summative nature will
not by itself be able to yield a valid measure of the growth and development of the child. It, at
best, certifies the level of achievement only at a given point of time. The paper pencil tests are
basically a one-time mode of assessment and to exclusively rely on them to decide about the
development of a child is not only unfair but also unscientific. Over emphasis on examination
marks focusing on only scholastic aspects makes children assume that assessment is different
from learning, resulting in the 'learn and forget' syndrome. Besides encouraging unhealthy
competition, the overemphasis on Summative Assessment system also produces enormous stress
and anxiety among the learners.

T
O

Features of Summative Assessment

Assessment of learning

Generally taken by students at the end of a unit or semester to demonstrate the sum
of what they have or have not learned.

Summative assessment methods are the most traditional way of evaluating student work.

L
I
P

Summative Assessment

Good summative assessments--tests and other graded evaluations--must be


demonstrably reliable, valid, and free of bias (Angelo and Cross, 1993).

assessment (that) has increasingly been used to sum up learning(Black and Wiliam,
1999)

looks at past achievements adds procedures or tests to existing work ... involves only
marking and feedback grades to student is separated from teaching is carried out at
intervals when achievement has to be summarized and reported.

Attitudes (Part 2D)


Attitude is an important dimension in students' lives. In this section, you will assess
students', attitude with respect to the teachers, school-mates, and school programmes. You
will follow the same practice as in the assessment of Life Skills.
(1) Attitudes towards Teachers
(2) Attitude towards schools-mates
(3) Attitude towards School Programs and Environment

4b. Value Systems (Part 2D)


Values are determining qualities of life. There is a very large body of knowledge and lists of
values. Article 51A of the Indian Constitution Fundamental Duties provides the most

T
O

comprehensive list of values that should be inculcated by every Indian citizen. There are 10
principles; we have identified four behaviors as descriptors for each in all 40.
i.

To abide by the constitution and respect its ideals and institutions, the National Flag and
the National Anthem.

ii. To cherish and follow the noble ideals which inspired freedom struggle.

iii. To uphold and protect the sovereignty, unity and integrity of India.

iv. To defend the country and render national service when called upon to do so.

v. To promote harmony and spirit of unity, brotherhood amongst all the people of India
transcending religious, linguistic and regional or sectional diversities; to remove the
practices derogatory to the dignity of women

vi. To value and preserve the rich heritage of our culture


vii. To protect and improve natural environment

viii.To develop scientific temper and the spirit of enquiry


ix. To safeguard public property and to abjure violence
x. To strive towards excellence in all spheres of individual and collective activity which
leads to higher level of performance.

Co-Curricular Activities (Part 3A)


(Assess the student in any two areas)
The teacher will record the two activities from the following (i) Literacy and Creative skills
(ii) Scientific Skill (iii) Information and Communication Technology (ICT) (iv) Organizational
and Leadership Skills.

5b. Health and Physical Education (Part 3B)
Proper development of the body is essential for the healthy growth of the mind. It is
therefore necessary that the students should be examined by qualified doctors once in the
session along with a follow-up session. If this facility is not available general information
about health i.e. height & weight etc. could be obtained by the teachers. There are already
age and gender related charts of height and weight. Teachers should use theses charts and
note observations on the basis of entries he/she makes on the Report Book / Certificate of
School Based Assessment (SBA)
In addition to this general information, physical disabilities and diseases e.g defective vision
maintenance of teeth, deafness, long absence due to illness which the teacher can detect at
one's own level should also be noted. He/she should also bring any noticeable deformity of

T
O

the child to the notice of parents. In the assessment of Health Status the recordings of
heights shall be in centimeter and the weight shall be mentioned in kilograms. The Health
Manuals (in four volumes) brought out by CBSE must be referred to and graded activities
taken up as part of the curriculum in schools. Moreover, features of Health Promoting
Schools a format of Health Cards and the themes and annexures must be adhered to. The
suggested format of Health Cards and themes and Annexure must be adhered to. The

L
I
P

suggested format of Health cards has also been given in the Comprehensive Schools Health
Manual (Vol. I). The Health Card records the history in term of health for all learners from
the time of admission in the school, till the time they leave.

While the area of Physical Education of the curriculum will be judging the skills and
proficiency acquired by the students in games, sports etc, the area of Health Education will
concentrate on those aspects which constitute the criteria for determining the physical
health of an individual. The following aspects will be taken care of in this area.

How do Life-Skills help ?


Thinking-Skills

Social-Skills

With the enhancement of


thinking skills, an individual
demonstrates the ability to
be original, flexible and
imaginative. Instead of taking
all that comes her/his way,
s/he raises questions and
thinks critically, identifies
andanalyses problems. While
deciding on a thing s/he
implements a well thought
out decision and takes
responsibility. It makes one
comfortable with one's own
self at the same time
accepting or trying to
overcome weaknesses while
building on the strengths for
positive self-concept.

Social-skills help a person to


demonstrate the ability to
identify, verbalize and respond
effectively to others' emotions
in an empathetic manner.
Along with this s/he gets along
well with others without
prejudices. S/he also takes
criticism constructively and
reflects, listens actively and
communicates using
appropriate words, intonation
and body language.

Emotional-Skills

L
I
P

With enhanced emotional skills


an individual is able to identify
causes and effects of stress on
oneself and develop and use
multi-faceted strategies to
deal with it. As and when
required, the person is also
able to express and respond
to emotions with an awareness
of the consequences.

Enhanced Life-Skills in an individual thus help in developing:

Improved Self-Esteem

Self- confidence

Assertiveness

Ability to establish relationships

Ability to plan and set goals

Acquisition of knowledge related to specific content areas

TOOL OBSERVATION
Observation of Student are often needed for some kinds of outcomes which cannot be assessed by
evaluating other products of Student work.
Information collected through planned and purposeful observation of students during activities
and tasks.
Observations can be used as a tool of assessment in a variety of situations -techniques like
debates, elocution, group work, practical and laboratory activities, projects, in play fields and
school prayers, in clubs and festivals. Whereas observation can be biased and subjective, such
errors and risks can be substantially reduced by using an observation schedule and focusing
observation on important learning outcomes.

T
O

Advantages of Observation :

Teachers gain more accurate information by watching students rather than by asking
them. It helps to throw light on whether the students have understood what has been
taught or discussed.

Recognize and identify the individuals as well as groups.

L
I
P

Recognize and identify on a continuing basis at varying time periods.

Recognize and identify the students' performance and knowledge based on an 'on-the-spot
record'.

Over time, a pattern of interests, aptitudes etc. emerge creating a comprehensive picture
of the student.

Reliability and validity in observation

Teachers must ensure that observation is as objective as possible and teachers should also
be aware that their own interests and biases don't affect their judgment.

Teachers must also be consistent in their observation


.

Suggestions for implementation of Observation

Avoid arriving at inferences/interpretations or jumping to conclusions. It is important to


take down more than what is actually seen.

Dependent on the skill of the observer which determines 'what' is observed.

Requires sensitivity and unobtrusiveness in the way the observation is done.

Observations to be made over a period of time, across different activities and settings.

Record Observations systematically for using, creating, developing standardized check


parts.

Noting comments about the child's behavior in parentheses based on processes which can
be inferred at a later.

Teachers also need to be consistent in their observation i.e they must ensure that they
make similar decisions about similar events on different occasions.

TESTS & INVENTORIES
Oral tests should not be used for content or skills that can be tested through written examination.
Oral tests being individual tests require more time than group written tests. Oral tests are best
suited to assess the depth of learning where a student has difficulty in written expression.
Features of Oral tests :

Allow the learner to participate in the learning assessment process.

Help to test listening and speaking skills.

Test certain verbal abilities like fluency, expression and accuracy.

Test depth of learning of the students through probing questions.

T
O

Oral tests also require previous planning. Questions should be predefined and documented by the
teacher. The questions should be arranged in order of difficulty. Wherever probing is necessary,
probable probing questions should also be written down in advance. For each question, the
expected answers, the value points and the manner of presentation should also be written down.

L
I
P

For objectivity, students' answers should either be recorded on a digital (or otherwise) recorder or
documented on paper. One simple way out is, to check out on the model answer sheet. As a
student responds, teacher checks the correct answers and crosses the incorrect answers. This
kind of coded recording should be supplemented by brief descriptive notes.
Conducting oral tests

Prepare questions/task which involve higher order thinking skills

Teachers should explain the grading criteria to the students.

Oral tests need not only be a question answer type- students can be encouraged to talk
about a particular topic related to the subject or make presentations on the topic.

TASK OF THE PARTICIPANT :

Participants will simulate the task by dividing the group into teachers and student.

Teachers will conduct the task.

Teachers will prepare the assessment rubric and grade the students.

Teachers will give constrctive feedback to the student at the end of the task.

For Reference of Resource Person
1. Questions
Questions are the most commonly applied assessment tool for finding out what children know,
think, imagine, and feel. A teacher, in the course of teaching, comes to know of learning
difficulties in children by asking questions. Questions as tool are primarily used in
examinations weekly, monthly, quarterly and annual.
(a) Characteristics of a good question :
(i)

Objective based :
A question should be based on a pre-determined objective and should be framed in
such a way that it tests the objective effectively.

(ii)

T
O

Instructions :

It should specify a particular task through the instructions. For this, appropriate
directional words should be used and structured situations should be given.
Continuous and Comprehensive Evaluation Teachers' Manual
(iii) Scope :

L
I
P

It should indicate the limit and the scope of the answer (length of the answer) in
accordance with the estimated time and marks allotted to it.
(iv) Content :

The question should assess the same area of content which it intends to assess.
(v)

Language :

A good question is framed in a clear, precise and unambiguous language, well


within the comprehension of the students.
(vi) Difficulty level :

A question should be written keeping in view the level of the students for whom it is
meant. The difficulty of the question depends upon the ability to be tested, the
content area to be tested and the time available to answer it.
(vii) Discriminating power:
A good question must discriminate between the bright students and the other
students.
(viii) Delimited scope of the answer:
The language of the question should be specific and precise so that the scope of the
expected answer is clearly delimited or defined.

SESSION-III B
(ix) Value points :
Value points or marks carried by a question as a whole and its subparts should be
clearly mentioned.
(b)

Form of questions :
The form of question depends on the objective and the content area to be tested. Some
forms are better than the others for testing certain abilities. A good question paper
should have the questions based on :(i). Remembering - e.g. How many? , Can you name?, Who spoke to?, What
happened after...? etc.
(ii). Understanding - e.g. How would you explain..?, Who do you think..?, Can you

clarify.? etc.

(iiI). Applying - e.g. Which factors would you change if?, From the information given,
can you develop a set of instructions about?, Do you know of another instance
where? etc.

(iv). Analysing - e.g. Which events could not have happened...?, How is similar to?,

Why did.changes occur?, What was the turning point?, What was the problem

with?

(v). Evaluating - e.g. Is there a better solution to?, What are the alternatives...?,
What are the pros and cons of?, How effective are?, Do you think is a good or

bad thing?

(vi). Creating - e.g. Can you design a.to?, What would happen if?, Can you see a
possible solution to?, Can you develop a proposal which would..?

(i)

Essay Type Questions :


The term essay implies a written response which may consist of one or two pages. The
student is allowed to have freedom with respect to wording, length and organization of the
answer. A distinction should be made between the essay type question used to measure
knowledge and the essay type question employed to test writing skills in languages which is
called a writing task.
There are many abilities which may not be tested through any other form of question but
only by the essay type question. These abilities are:

Select relevant facts from the body of acquired knowledge

Identify and establish relationships between various aspects of Knowledge

Weigh the proof with respect to implications of the gathered information

To organize, analyse, interpret facts and other types of information to draw inferences

Adopt an indigenous or original approach to solve a given problem

Defend one's point of view through facts, data and suitable arguments

Critically examine the degree of adequacy, accuracy and relevance of the available

P

information in a given situation

Demonstrate internalized attitude towards problems and issues

Appreciate a problem at both the micro and macro levels

Conceive, design and suggest new and innovative approaches for tackling a given
problem

Constructing Essay Type Questions :

Essay type questions usually begin with such terms as 'discuss', 'explain', 'evaluate', 'define'.
'compare', 'contrast', 'describe', etc. Essay type questions are good when the group to be tested is
small and limited time is available for test preparation. It is also quite suitable to test written
expression.

Short Answer Questions :

Essay type questions suffer from lack of objectivity and reliability while objective type
questions cannot be used for testing certain aspects of growth like the ability to express,
summarise and organize the ideas in a precise manner. Short answer questions are a good
via-media between the two extremes. If understood and framed properly, they have the
advantages of both the objective type and essay type questions
Some characteristics of short answer questions are as under :

Short questions can be used profitably in all tests

It can be used to test almost all the objectives of teaching

It helps students to develop the ability of organising and selecting relevant facts

It can be scored more objectively than the essay type questions and thereby ensure
reliability

These questions help in covering more syllabus because more number of questions can
be put in lieu of one-essay type question. This improves the validity of the question
paper

and validity can be ensured

It helps in testing knowledge of the examinee by asking him to supply a


word, phrase, figure or a sentence which is required for answering the
questions

It can be answered in one word to one sentence

(i)

True-False or Yes-No Question:


In this type of question a statement is given and the candidate is asked whether it is true
or false (T/F). True/False questions are easy to construct and score. They provide a
fairly reliable measure of students understanding particularly in the classroom testing.

The forms of questions discussed above may be used for different purposes of testing and also
making judgement regarding the achievement of the students. If in a test, more varieties of the
question forms are used then it will definitely help in testing various objectives and content areas
in a better way on one hand and also making it more reliable and valid instrument on the other
hand. It is true that though different forms have some limitations, they do have advantages over
each other. Therefore, at the time of the selection of forms all aspects should remain in the mind
of teachers so that these forms may be exploited for their best use.

Subject : Inclusive Practices in CBSE schools
Dear Principal,

Inclusion is not just about including children with disabilities. It is about embracing the idea that
diversity is the reality and, therefore, each child is a unique learner.

T
O

Learners learn and use their learning differently. Today's learner in schools may be culturally or
linguistically different or they may suffer from minor or major disabilities, they may come from
different family or socio-economic background or they may be disadvantaged due to economic, social,
cultural, linguistic, gender, administrative, vocational disability or other factors. They need to
overcome all these barriers with the help of an enabling school environment. The educators and all
stakeholders including parents and members of the community need to develop the capacity to
address the differences that each school might present.

L
I
P

With respect to children with disabilities, the Central Board of Secondary Education has provided
relaxation for disabled children. These are placed at Annexure 1 for your reference. It is earnestly
hoped that schools will adapt / adopt some of these measures right from primary level. The sooner
children are identified, the easier it is to help them monitor their disability and improve their
performance.

The Board had brought out a document related to Poor School Performance in schools focusing on
the major issue of slow learning caused by dyslexia and other co-morbid disabilities. This document is
in the process of being revised.

We need to respect diversity so that every child no matter what his/her background and ability is
provided a relevant and meaningful education. Being different is a fact which most of us understand.
Inclusion is an effort to make sure all learners including children with disabilities access school
alongwith other children and receive specially designed support and instruction which they need
to succeed as learners and to achieve the required competence and skills.
......................./The schools also need to follow the Advisory enclosed at Annexure 2. It may be noted that all
schools need to comply with Inclusive Education Practices and admit children with disability in their
institutions failing which stringent action to the extent of disaffiliation of the schools may be taken.
Often children are labeled as `lazy' or `poor performers' since they have a seemingly`invisible
disability' called Learning Disability (LD). Learning Disability can manifest itself in learners in various

ways and hamper their ability to listen, think, speak, read, write, spell or to do mathematical
calculations. These learners may suffer from some impairment in perception, conceptualization,
language, memory, attention or motor control.
It is hoped that schools will realize this serious concern and take appropriate initiatives to address
these issues. The Board in the meantime is also in the process of bringing out a document on Inclusive
Practices in School Education. Inclusive thinking and practices involve learners with disabilities in
mainstream education curricula, assessment practices and classroom transaction which encourage
the general and subject teacher to work together for the benefit of each student.
Inclusion presents a challenge not just on behalf of students with disabilities but also on behalf of
students who are different in other ways. Different languages and cultures, different income groups
and different ways of learning need accommodation from educators.
The redressal of the issue of child labour can no longer be postponed any further. Let us reinforce that

T
O

the `school is the best place for a child to work'.

Moving ahead, the CBSE would like to recommend to all its affiliated schools that their children
and staff take a pledge to stop child labour in their own homes and neighborhoods.

This can be repeated twice a week during assembly and children can ensure that no child below the
age of 18 years is employed in their own homes. This can be followed by expanding the initiative to
homes of close relatives and friends and even the neighbourhood. Schools can also take on various

L
I
P

activities(according to age of children), such as research on child labour, performing street plays on
combating child labour, making posters, pamphlets and display boards; writing articles and making
short films on the topic. The CBSE would be very eager to get reports from the school on the impact of
this initiative and would look forward to case studies that the Board could share with others.

In its broadest and all encompassing meaning, Inclusive Education, as an approach, seeks to
address the learning needs of all children, youth and adults with a specific focus on those who are
vulnerable to marginalization and exclusion. It implies all learners, young people - with or without
disabilities being able to learn together through access to common pre-school provisions, schools
and community educational setting with an appropriate network of support services. This is
possible only in a flexible education system that assimilates the needs of a diverse range of
learners and adapts itself to meet these needs. It aims at all stakeholders in the system (learners,
parents, community, teachers, administrators, policy makers) to be comfortable with diversity
and see it as a challenge rather than a problem. (Action Plan for Inclusive Education of Children
and Youth with Disabilities, MHRD, 2005)

Circular No. 65

All the Heads of Independent Schools


Affiliated to the CBSE
Subject : Children with Special Needs (CWSN) Integration.
Dear Principals,
Further to our Circular No. 45 dated 29th Oct.,2008 where schools were advised vide Annexure
(enclosed) to ensure that no child with special needs is denied admission in main stream schools,
it has been observed that there are many schools affiliated to CBSE who are not abiding by this
directive.

T
O

There seems to be a misconception among schools and school authorities on various issues
pertaining to children with special needs. The children with special needs face challenges in
learning as they may not be able to focus on the teacher during classroom interaction or their
pace of learning may vary. Moreover social skills and emotional skills may need to be further
strengthened.
To overcome these problems generally an aid is given to the child. An aid is an adult sitting
along with the special child encouraging and motivating the child to move along with the
class.

L
I
P

Schools are advised to allow parents when they make a request to provide an aid so that individual
attention is possible for the child and enables the student to grow and learn along with the other
peers in the class.
Further inclusive education also needs to be done with an Individual Evaluation Program.
Specific goals should be set for each child with special need based upon the appraisal. For this
purpose the schools need to have a special educator as has already been recommended
earlier.
It is being reiterated that any school which fails to provide attention to a child with special needs
or makes a pretext of denying admission to any category of a differently abled child will be liable
to stringent action even to the extent of disaffiliation.
The Guidelines on Inclusive Education of Children with Disabilities is once again enclosed for
dissemination to all stakeholders which includes parents of the school.
Yours sincerely
