The newly introduced Continuous and Comprehensive Evaluation (CCE) by CBSE is more burburden for teachers as well as students. Instead of decreasing the load, it has increased it. The teachers are under more tension than the students, as they have to maintain more records and every time on full alert, monitoring, mentoring and all. Most of the evaluation taking place in most of the schools are unplanned or in some cases they do not take place at all.
The evidences of evaluation are often ”cooked” as and when required during school inspection or cross checking by CBSE. CBSE has highly formalised the formative evaluation and it is in practice defeating the purpose. The already overburdened teachers are further burdened by these. When it comes to supervision, the teachers are compelled to tell lies or produce false evidences and forged documents.
Why this injustice? What was wrong with the earlier system? NCF quotes that the earlier system was too much bookish and lacked a comprehensive approach.
But, why to overhaul the already existing system which has produced so many successful personalities some of whom have formulated the new system too.
Further, the teachers handling current class 11 are complaining that the stuff is extremely difficult to handle. The stuff means the students who passes with high grades in current system of evaluation in class X. They don’t care what the teacher says, whether it be revising regularly, maintaining records or completing an assigned task in time.
As the students have not undergone a system of regular serious study under the shadow of CCE, the lack the fundamentals and still expect that it will be an easy cake walk and that they can score high marks without studying anything.
It is clear that the current CCE and its implementation has to be revised. Let the academic side be given prime importance and let the assignments and projects continue to be a part of the evaluation and be counted for promotion as was the case in Kendriya Vidyalayas.
The term Continuous and Comprehensive Evaluation and the rigidity imposed by CBSE in the time frame and assessment plans and all defeats the purpose in most of the cases.
Opinions and further suggestions are invited from all.
CCE looks fantastic when looked from out side or in theory, but in practice, it flopped.
What do you think? Post your reactions and reflections as comments to this post.
Centre Teacher Eligibility Test (CTET) is ahead and it’s a common question asked by many – How to prepare for it?
Here are some suggestions to score well in CTET
- Revise your notes on Education, Educational Psychology, Educational Technology, Educational Sociology, History of education, Philosophy of Education
- Read newspaper regularly with focus on educational issues.
- Be thorough the NCF (National curriculum framework) and read all the policy papers.
- Visit NCERT website & education.nic.in and many of the policy papers are available for download.
- Refresh your general knowledge, elementary mathematics and popular science.
- Read the science textbooks of 8,9 and 10 and in case if you have any doubts on these please ask at www.askphysics.com
Have confidence, prepare well and perform well, success will be yours

Is all physics which we had studied in class 11 and 12 are correct or … ?
I would like to quote just one thing, “Science tells the first word of everything and the last word of nothing”
What we learnt yesterday might have changed today and may change in future. We have to adapt ourselves to the new findings, discoveries and inventions.
Further, What we learn in class XI and XII is up to that level and we when we go to higher levels, we learn things more deeply and many things will be dealt differently.
