Different students have different learning styles and perform differently based on the context of learning. However, continuous monitoring of a child’s behavior can help in assessing and develop traits to facilitate the child learn which is why we follow CCE technique. CCE stands for Continuous and Comprehensive Evaluation designed to cover all aspects of a student’s learning and development. Continuous implies 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. Comprehensive on the other hand attempts to cover both the scholastic and the co-scholastic aspects of a student’s growth and development.
This type of evaluation method has been implemented in almost all international and CBSE schools in India. This was introduced in our schools in Bangalore, Mumbai, Pune and Hyderabad to reduce pressure on students. The method takes into account both the academic and non-academic performances of students while awarding grades which helps students who are not that good at academics compared to their peers but have very good non-academic skills. The non-academic activities would include music, arts, humanities, sports etc. Grades would be awarded based on innovation, dexterity, public facing, behavior and other skills
CCE method consists of several tests throughout the year unlike traditional 2-3 tests in a year. It consists of two types of tests namely formative and summative tests. The formative tests comprise quizzes, oral tests, project assignments which has 40% weight-age of the total score. Then the summative tests are held which comprise 60% weight-age. Usually, formative tests are held four times a year. After two formative tests, one summative test is taken which is bit lengthy in duration. Another summative test is taken after the next two formative tests. Each summative test usually consists of 30% weight-age making it a total of 60% by taking two tests. So, the formative and summative together would make 100%. This gives students chances to improve their performance throughout the year.
