EXAMINATION SYSTEM – SECONDARY : CLASSES IX & X

Central Board of Secondary Education introduced examination reforms and the scheme of Continuous and Comprehensive Evaluation in its affiliated schools from October 2009.

The School-Based Assessment Card includes reporting of students’ performance in scholastic as well as given co-scholastic areas in terms of grades.  In order to provide sufficient scope and space for different abilities of different students, number of significant co-scholastic areas has been included in the assessment scheme.  These shall help students acquire skills, attitudes, values and abilities.

The assessment in classes IX & X will cover both scholastic and co-scholastic aspects and will be carried out in schools over the two terms, Term 1 and Term 2 by means of formative and summative assessments using a variety of tests and assignments.  For purpose of teaching and assessment, the syllabus for different subjects is bifurcated for the two terms.

There will be four Formative Assessments each with a weightage of 10% each.  There are two Summative Assessments (SA1 and SA2) with a weightage of 30% each.

 

        First Term          :       FA1(10%) + FA2(10%) + SA1(30%) = 50%

        Second Term      :       FA3(10%) + FA4(10%) + SA2(30%) = 50%

Formative Assessments are carried through using multiple modes of assessment such as assignments, quizzes, debates, Group discussions, Projects and pen and paper test.

The Summative Assessment is a written, end of the term examination which may consist of objective type, short answer and long answer questions.

For making evaluation comprehensive, both scholastic and co-scholastic aspects are given importance.  Co-scholastic areas consist of Life-Skills, Attitudes and Values, Co-scholastic Activities, Health and Physical Education.

A copy of the CBSE Manual is placed on the CBSE website (www.cbse.nic.in) and can be downloaded from under the CCE corner.

PROMOTION POLICY

According to the  revised manual on CCE for classes IX and X effective from session 2011-12 for class IX and subsequent session 2012-13 for class X, assessment in all co-scholastic areas/ activities is to be done on 5 point scale.  Besides, the total domains of assessment in co-scholastic areas/ activities is also slightly modified.  Consequently, the maximum grade points which a student can obtain in co-scholastic areas/ activities becomes 65 as compared to 42 in the earlier scheme.  The table given below compares the earlier scheme and the revised scheme of assessment in co-scholastic areas/ activities :-

This change in total maximum grade points obtained by any student in co-scholastic areas/ activities demands revision in policy for upscaling of grades in scholastic areas on the basis of total grade points obtained in co-scholastic areas/ activities.  The following scheme may be followed for upscaling the grades in scholastic areas –

 

a)   Those students who get total grade points in co-scholastic areas/ activities in the range 53-65 may benefit by getting upgraded to the next higher grade in two subjects in scholastic areas.

b)   Those students who get total grade points in the range 40-52, may benefit by getting upgraded to the next higher grade in one subject in scholastic area.

c)   The upscaling of Grade in Scholastic Areas is applicable in Main Subject only (i.e., excluding Additional 6th Subject).

d)   No Grade should be upscaled twice.

e)   No upscaling done if the Grade obtained in the subject is E2 or A1).

f)    Upscaling is done from lowest grade to next higher grade and so on.

(Example : E1 be upscaled to D, D to C2, C2 to C1, C1 to B2, B2 to B1, B1 to A2 and A2 to A1).

g)   In case of tie in Grades in two or more subjects (i.e. if Grades obtained are same), the upscaling be done in the following order :-

  • Higher marks obtained in the subject be preferred
  • In case of tie in marks, higher marks obtained in Summative Assessment (SA1+SA2)
  • In case of tie in Summative Assessment marks, higher marks obtained in Formative Assessments (FA1+FA2+FA3+FA4).

h) If a student fails to obtain qualifying grade D in one or more subjects, even after adding grade points from co-scholastic areas and after availing one improvement chance, he/ she will be required to repeat the same class during next academic year.

i)   Benefit shall be given to the students who win I/ II positions/ prizes in competitions held at state level and/ or participation in competitions held at national/ international level organized by a body recognized by the State/ Central Government/ CBSE.  Any competition organized by such agencies related to the co-scholastic areas/ activities included in the Board’s CCE card may be considered for giving this benefit.  Those students who qualify under this provision will benefit by getting their grade up-scaled to the next higher grade in two subjects provided this benefit has not been given to the student under the aforesaid grade point scheme.
