3 NCF 2005School Based Continuous and Comprehensive Evaluation system is Introduced to:Reduce stress on childrenMake evaluation comprehensive and regularProvide space for the teacher for creative teachingProvide a tool of diagnosis and remedial actionProduce learners with greater skills( Position Paper on Aims of Education - NCF 2005, NCERT)
4 CONTINUOUS It means 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.
5 COMPREHENSIVEmeans thatIt covers both the scholastic and the co-scholastic aspects of the students’ growth and development .Since abilities, attitudes and aptitudes can manifest themselves in the forms other than the written word, the term refers to application of variety of tools and techniques (both testing and non-testing)Assessing a learner’s development in areas of learning, like:- Knowledge,Understanding Applying, Analyzing, Evaluating, Creating
6 remedial action and enhancement of learning. EVALUATIONEvaluation should lead todiagnosis,remedial action and enhancement of learning.The scope of evaluation in schools extends to almost all the areas of learners ’ personality development.It should include bothscholastic and co-scholastic areas5. It should be comprehensive in nature
7 Comes from the Latin verb ‘assidere’ meaning ‘to sit with’. The word ‘assess’Comes from the Latin verb ‘assidere’ meaning ‘to sit with’.In assessment one is supposed to sit with the learner. This implies it is something we do with and for students and not to students (Green, 1998)Assessment is a form of communication and should be seen as an integral part of learning and teaching
8 Summative vs. Formative Assessment The garden analogyIf we think of our children as plants …Summative assessment of the plants is the process of simply measuring them. It might be interesting to compare and analyze measurements but, in themselves, these do not affect the growth of the plants.Formative assessment, on the other hand, is the equivalent of feeding and watering the plants appropriate to their needs - directly affecting their growth.
9 Pre-testUsing your note pad quickly define and/or provide specific examples of:Formative Assessment(s)Summative Assessment(s)You have 2 minutes- Ready set go………………Now share with your neighbour, minimal discussion, just share your answer.

12 KVS Guidelines for FA2 & FA4 The duration of Formative Assessment 2 will be from the first week of April to the last week of August and Formative Assessment 4 from the first week of October to the last week of the last week of February.NOTE: A teacher needs to use a series of diagnostic tools like Class test (Written as well as Oral), Surprise Test, Class Responses, Minute Paper (Short descriptions are made by children which give the teacher immediate feedback.It can be done at the end of the class for understanding the effectiveness of teaching-learning process.) etc. during the course of instruction in order to take diagnostic measures for effective learning of children and enable them to write FA 1 and FA 3 with great ease and confidence.Even, the teacher needs to use the feedback of FA 1 and FA3 to take remedial measures to improve the performance of bloomers (slow learners) in SA 1 and SA 3 respectively so that the bloomers could get minimum `C` grade in all the subjects.
13 WHAT IS FORMATIVE ASSESSMENT ? Assessment becomes Formative Assessment when the method is actually used to adapt the teaching to meet student’s needs . It is necessary to convince the teachers that assessing children is not a separate activity nor is it an extra burden which requires additional effort or time

17 The major emphasis of CCE is on the continuous growth of students ensuring their intellectual, emotional, physical, cultural and social development and therefore, it will not be merely limited to assessment of learner’s scholastic attainments. :*In order to have Continuous and Comprehensive Evaluation, both Scholastic and Co-Scholastic aspects need to be given due recognition. :* Weekly, fortnightly, or quarterly reviews (depending on the learning area), that do not openly compare one learner with another are generally recommended.(CBSE Manual on CCE)

20 About the CCE Package -Primary It is a compilation of guidelines and resources from the CBSE, NCERT and KVS directions for CCE for all scholastic and co-scholastic areas. It is compiled class wise and subject wiseIts focus is on FA 2 & FA4It has a subject specific blueprint for the Process of conducting teaching-learning activities and mode of assessmentSubject specific Indicators of Assessment are listed out as a ready reference for benchmarksA chapter-wise CCE plan of Activities has been compiledRecording formats and software have been designed and discussed
21 About the CCE Package -Secondary The package has the following modules:Scholastic Areas- English, Hindi, Maths, Science, Social ScienceEach scholastic area has the following aspects:General Information on CCEKVS Split of SyllabusActivities for each Unit/ Lesson/chapterAction Plan for FA2 and FA4Areas of AssessmentCriteria for AssessmentFormatsLatest changes in exam pattern for Classes IX & XCo-Scholastic Areas- Life Skills, Values and Attitudes, Work Education, Performing Arts, Physical and Health EducationGeneral InformationCBSE – FAQs on Class XCCE SOFTWARE FOR TABULATION

23 IMPORTANTEach package is fully independent having the complete details needed for the subject. It can be issued to each subject teacher if needed.
24 About the CCE SoftwareA software has been designed by a team of teachers in the workshop on Material Production for CCE. The salient features of this software are:It has a very simple and user friendly structureIt complements the material /guidelines for CCE that has been produced, particularly for FA2 &FA4 in terms of number of entries .All student related data can be easily computerised for multi-purpose through one time entries
25 PLANNING AND MONITORING A VIDYALAYA LEVEL ASSESSMENT PLAN SPECIFIC TO EACH KV TO BE DRAWN UP GUIDED BY A GIVEN SAMPLE. THIS PLAN AIMS TO PROVIDE COMPLETE DETAILS OF CLASSES, TEACHER ROLES, PERIODICITY, TIMELINES AND OTHER DETAILS .THIS ALSO AIMS TO ENSURE EQUITABLE DISTRIBUTION OF WORK TO A LARGE EXTENT.AN ASSESSMENT PLANNING FORMAT TO GO WITH THE LESSON PLAN HAS ALSO BEEN SUGGESTED.THIS CAN BE MAINTAINED BY EACH TEACHER.
26 ROLE OF THE TEACHER It is Possible-You can make it happen Assessment can become a useful and interesting process. To realize this you need to be careful about:Being clear about why you are assessing the child.Not labelling children as, slow, poor, intelligent, dull on making comparisons between children.Using a variety of ways to collect information about the child's learning and progress in subjects and across curricular boundaries.Collecting information continuously and recording the same.Giving importance to each child's way of responding and learning and the time it takes to do so.Reporting on ongoing, continuous basis and being sensitive to every child's responses.Not making negative statements or using technical language during assessment or while providing feedback to the child, parents or others.Providing feedback in clear and simple language, which will lead to positive action and help the child to do better.
