CCE has improved scores, not teaching

School standards in the country remain fairly low with CBSE's subject evaluators rating 49.8% as average and 9.11% in need of improvement. The analysis of school level assessment doesn't paint a rosy picture either. Nearly 35% of schools don't do their summative assessment evaluation strictly as per the board's marking schemes while 38.1% don't use sufficient tasks and tools in co-scholastic assessment.

CBSE's first report on Continuous and Comprehensive Evaluation (CCE) since its introduction in 2009 shows that performance of schools has been a mixed bag. There has been a marked improvement in student scores and the overall pass percentage since 2010 has improved by 9.48 percentage points to reach a record 98.76% in 2013.

But on the flip side, CBSE officials have found the general classroom teaching methodology wanting. Tasks given to students in 54.6% of the schools are of average quality and the difficulty level is also average or below average in 86% of schools. Nearly 8% of the schools did not adhere to the marking schemes and had inflated marks or grades in the summative assessments.

Parents and teachers, though, seem happy with CCE. TOI was the first to report in November 2013 that students who skipped the class X Boards in 2011 (the year Boards were made optional) fared better in their class XII exams than those who wrote the external exam that year. The new analysis is based on evidence collected from 5,552 schools.

Studies commissioned by CBSE; Management Development Institute, Gurgaon; National University of Educational Planning and Administration , and National Council for Educational Research and Training have shown that 60% of the parents and 90% of the teachers are happy with the new scheme of assessment and the related reforms.

CCE has been around in CBSE schools since 2000 but it was extended to the secondary level in 2009. At present, it is being followed across 14,647 schools, including government and private unaided schools. The scheme covers more than 22 lakh students in classes IX and X. The Board has also trained more than 3,000 mentors since 2010 in India and abroad to train teachers. While the results have improved significantly, CBSE was forced to introduce many changes in the scheme, such as mandatory appearance in both the summative assessments (SA) and also a minimum requirement of 25% cumulative scores to qualify the examination. Earlier, students were promoted to a higher class on scoring 33% in the complete assessment, which includes four formative assessments and two SAs. There used to be no minimum pass marks for the SA, which is the written examination conducted at the end of the two semesters.
