328 views

The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) decision to introduce a modified version of the 'open book exam' has been welcomed with open arms by educationists across boards. After all, the education system in the state has been gradually moving from the age-old rote-learning method to a more application-based approach. Over the years, every board has taken innovative steps to enhance the evaluation system.

Be it an emphasis on presentations and projects against plain theory, or the introduction of Continuous Comprehensive Evaluation (CCE) under the Right to Education (RTE) Act, boards have been consistently introducing tangible changes. "The best part about the ICSE Board is it introduced skill-based subjects so that the students don't have to struggle with difficult ones. Our students have the option of choosing subjects like yoga or technical drawing over second and third languages," said Perin Bagli, principal, Activity High School, Pedder Road. Maharashtra state board has made quite a few changes as well.

Five years ago, it implemented a method by which 80% of a student's marks depend on theory exams and 20% on internal assessments. The state board introduced the Higher Order Thinking Skills (HOTS) pattern this year in Maths and Science for SSC. "For years, students have learned answers by heart, but now, they are expected to understand a concept and logically use it during exams. It enhances their thinking and application skills," said Rehana Salamat, principal, Anjuman-I-Islam Allana English High School.
