With schools re-opening on June 13, the excitement among Class IX students, who will now be assessed and evaluated under the Continuous and Comprehensive Evaluation (CCE) pattern, is high. Students will have to take Formative Assessments (FA) and Summative Assessments (SA) in the academic year which will be divided into six months each.
In a recently held meeting, the education board members also framed new rules for promoting Class IX students. It was decided in the meeting that the minimum pass percentage for students should be 33%, meaning that, students should score 33% in the four FAs and two SAs to clear the examinations. If the result of students is below 33%, then they will be given E1 or E2 grades. The board members have also introduced 'remedial teaching' for students who have scored below 33%. Following the remedial teaching, students will have to re-appear for FA and SA. Regarding the decision, Father Fernand Durai, principal, St Xavier's School, Loyola Hall, says, "Instead of schools focusing on remedial teaching, I believe some mechanism should be introduced to see to it that students work hard." In another decision taken regarding Formative Assessments, the board has stated that if students remain absent during FA, then the teacher will conduct their FA when they return. Moreover, if the student remains absent continuously in FA1 and FA2 for valid reasons, the student will have to appear for FA1 and the marks of the same will be considered. Regarding Summative Assessments (SA), if students remain absent for SA1, then they will be provided remedial teaching and the SA1 and SA2 will be held. Also, if students remain absent in SA1 or SA2 for valid reasons, then the marks of any one of the SA will be considered in which they appeared. The meet discussed the issue of students' absenteeism. It was decided that if a student is absent for long, the principal will have to submit a letter to DEO, who will take the final call on the matter.
