We Missed the Thrill of Board Results

The first batch of class X students pass out based on the continuous and comprehensive evaluation (CCE) system of the CBSE had mixed feelings about the assessment scheme. While some students found the system easy to deal with, others thought that it built up more pressure instead of reducing it and a few said they missed out the excitement of board results.

The scheme is great and the performances were up to expectations, said Omkar Bhatawdekar, a student of Jnana Prabodhini Prashala. It was the first year of this system and there were a few hiccups, but once a few changes are made and the assessment scheme is planned properly, I’m sure it will be better appreciated. Jainam Shah, a student of Delhi Public School, said, "The system makes you study every day. We are evaluated on a daily basis, so it’s not like what we can get by last-minute study. Plus, there are grades, so it reduces competition and thus the pressure."

Student Manan Arora, however, was of the view that though exam - related pressures were reduced, there were other pressures. "We have to continuously prepare for some test or the other, throughout the year, which is stressful. In the case of board examinations, we get prepared one or two months before the exam. Also, I don’t like grades, percentages have a greater fascination."

Komal Bodkhe thought the implementation of CCE was abrupt. "We were not prepared for it and it was largely experimental. The board should have implemented it on a pilot basis and then launched it completely. The preparation time between the board exam and the school-based exam was very short. Komal chose the board-based assessment."

Rakesh Mishra, a student of Kendriya Vidyalaya, said, "I do not like CCE for the single reason that I do not get the feel of writing the examinations. Most of the assessment is done by school teachers and the 40 per cent assessment just does not feel the way it did when we used to write our final exams". Nidhi Rawal, another student from Kendriya Vidyalaya said, "If there are no percentages, there is no excitement of knowing the result. I scored 'A' grade today but I was hardly bothered about the result as I knew I would get this grade. The excitement of knowing the exact percentage is different."

About CCE : The Central Board for Secondary Education introduced the continuous and comprehensive evaluation (CCE) scheme for std IX and X last year. The first batch, after the scheme was introduced, passed out on Tuesday.
In the CCE scheme, a pen and paper board exam was replaced by a variety of assessment tools like symposiums, field trips, seminars, debates, role plays, projects and so on, which were continuous and comprehensive in nature.
The session was divided into four formative assessments (FA) each with a weightage of 10 per cent and two summative assessments (SA1 and SA2) with a weightage of 20 per cent and 40 per cent respectively.

First Term : FA1(10%) + FA2 (10%) + SA1 (20%) = 40%.

Second Term : FA3 (10%) + FA4 (10%) + SA2 (40%) = 60%.
The absolute marks were replaced by grades; a nine point grading scale was used for measuring scholastic achievements and a five - point grading scale was used for measuring co-scholastic achievements of the students.
Students who opted for school-based assessment had to appear for the exam undertaken by the school. The schools were provided with a set of question papers based on which the school-based assessment was done.
For students who opted for board-based evaluations, the contemporary method of assessment was conducted wherein the students chose their examination centre and wrote examinations as per the set time table.
