Continuous and comprehensive evaluation is an education system newly introduced by Central Board of Secondary Education in India, for students of sixth to tenth grades and twelfth in some schools. The main aim of CCE is to evaluate every aspect of the child during their presence at the school.
It is continuous in the sense that it lays stress on regularity of assessment, frequency of unit testing,
diagnosis of learning gaps, use of corrective measures, retesting and feedback of evidence to teachers and students
for their self evaluation. Comprehensive means that it covers both the scholastic and the co-scholastic
aspects of the student’s development and growth. Since the very introduction of the system, the School follows
it in word and spirit with the time to time changes being brought in by the C.B.S.E.
As a part of this new system, student’s marks will be replaced by grades which will be evaluated through a series of curricular and extra-curricular evaluations along with academics. The aim is to decrease the workload on the student by means of continuous evaluation by taking number of small tests throughout the year in place of single test at the end of the academic program. Only Grades are awarded to students based on work experience skills, dexterity, innovation, steadiness, teamwork, public speaking, behavior, etc. to evaluate and present an overall measure of the student’s ability. This helps the students who are not good in academics to show their talent in other fields such as arts, humanities, sports, music, athletics, and also helps to motivate the students who have a thirst of knowledge.
