CBSE to introduce new Uniform Assessment format for Class VI to IX

Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) has decided to implement the uniform system assessment, examination and report card for students of Class VI to IX which is going to replace the Continuous and Comprehensive Evaluation scheme (CCE). This is going to be implemented from the academic sessions 207-2018. All the schools which are affiliated to CBSE will need to follow this format from 2017-18 academic sessions.

CBSE decided make changes because to boost the confidence of students and to make sure that they are well prepared with their studies for a smooth appearance in the class 10 board exams. The new system would gradually level up the learning assessment as the students step into higher classes.

There are 18,688 schools affiliated to the CBSE board most of which follow varying assessment and report card patterns. So the centre has decided to introduce uniform system of assessment and evaluation of students and remove any sort of disparity in the system that creates problems for students needing to migrate from one CBSE school to another.

CBSE Chariman RK Chaturvedi stated that to make students more confident about facing the Class 10 board examinations when they join the upper-primary stage in Class 6, we have decided to implement a uniform system of assessment, examination pattern and report cards

Things to know about CBSE's new format for assessing students of Class VI to IX:

1) Students from Class VI to VIII follow the new uniform assessment scheme from the academic sessions 2017-18 with a two semester system that will include half yearly and annual examinations.

2) For Class IX students the assessment, examination and report card patterns will be same as for the class X board students.

3) In every semester there will be two 10 mark tests or periodic assessments for class VI to VIII. The half yearly exam is for a total of 80 marks.

4) Schools need to follow NCERT syllabus in Upper primary classes.

CCE pattern?
