Continuous and Comprehensive Evaluation (CCE) refers to a system of school based evaluation of a student that covers all aspects of a student development. The objectives are continuity in evaluation and assessment of broad based learning and behaviourial outcomes of the learners.
The term ‘comprehensive’ means that the scheme attempts to cover both the scholastic and the co-scholastic aspects of the students’ growth and development. Since abilities, attitudes and aptitudes can manifest themselves in forms other than the written word, hence CCE aims at assessing a learner’s development in areas of learning, like:-
SCHOLASTIC AND CO-SCHOLASTIC ASSESSMENT
In order to implement Continuous and Comprehensive Evaluation, both Scholastic and Co-Scholastic aspects needs to be given due recognition.
The objectives of the Scholastic domain are:-
- Desirable behaviour related to the learner’s knowledge, understanding, application, evaluation, analysis and the ability to apply it in an unfamiliar situation.
- To improve the teaching learning process.
- Assessment is both Formative and Summative.
Formative Assessment is a tool to continuously monitor the student’s progress in a supportive environment.
Summative Assessment is carried out at the end of the course of learning during terminal exam. It measures or ‘sums-up’ how much a student has learned from the course. It is usually a graded test i.e. it is marked according to a scale or set of grades. These paper pencil tests are the most traditional way of evaluating student’s work.
The desirable behaviour related to learner’s life skills, attitudes, interests values, co-curricular activities and physical health are described as skills to be acquired in Co-Scholastic domain.
