CBSE issues clarifications to students on new system

Aug. 2: The CBSE officials have issued some clarifications after complaints have poured in about the new system of evaluation. A CBSE circular issued to all schools says: ?All projects, experiments and activities should happen strictly during school hours. They should not be passed on as homework. CCE is a way of evaluation and that should happen in front of the teacher and in school.?

Officials clarified that the new system was not aimed at bringing in ?inspector raj?, but trained inspectors will conduct random surveys, interact with students and parents and will be responsible for ensuring that no biases creep into the system.

The board will also train teachers and principals on the use of CCE. Schools will be clubbed in groups of 10 and two or three current and former principals or educationists will be given the responsibility of acting as inspectors to ensure proper implementation of the system. The CCE has done away with the marking system, replacing it with grades. Like A1 for 91-100 marks, A2 for 81-90, B1 for 71-80, and so on till D for 33-40 marks and finally E2 – 0-20 marks.

Some students have benefited from the new system. ?My son is an average student, but since the CCE takes other factors into consideration, he has got A2 grade, which feels great,? said Ms Amulya Vardhan.
