¨      CCE & Formative Assessment.

The CCE or Continuous and Comprehensive Evaluation scheme refers to a school-based evaluation of students that covers all the aspects of a student’s development. Continuous means regular assessments, frequency of unit testing, analysis of learning gaps, applying corrective measures, retesting and giving feedback to teachers and students for their self-evaluation, etc. Comprehensive on the other hand attempts to cover both the scholastic and the co-scholastic aspects of a student’s growth and development — with both these aspects of the evaluation process being assessed through Formative and Summative Assessments.

The aim of the Workshop is to train teachers on Continuous and Comprehensive Evaluation in both Scholastic and Co-Scholastic Areas and help effective execution of the scheme for student learning and achievement. The focus of the workshop was to redefine education system to organize students for the new global economy. As educators and policymakers we need to build a flawless pathway from the classroom to productive careers for all students.

The speaker spoke about the importance of formative assessment and also she emphasis the meaning, features, tools and techniques of formative assessment. Formative assessment is a tool used by teachers to continuously monitor student progress in a non threatening, supportive environment. Formative assessment is carried out during a course of instruction for providing continuous feed back to both the teachers and the learners. In order to have continuous and comprehensive evaluation, both scholastic and co-scholastic aspects need to be give due recognition.

This module is geared to help the Teacher understand about meaning and features of Summative Assessment. Assessment tasks need to be designed to extract student performance and enable it to be judged with respect to the future outcomes. The syllabus and teaching program needs to be explicit about the developmental continuum in the area or field of study. Summative assessment methods are the most traditional way of evaluating students work.  The Scholastic areas will be assessed on a nine point scale. All activities under the Co-Scholastic domain will be assessed on five point scale.
