CCE Mathematics Class IX & X Scheme of assesment & tips for getting good grades

 

Click Here

 
Evaluating the need for a functional and reliable system of School-Based Evaluation, CBSE introduced the CCE Scheme for doing a holistic assessment of a learner which also includes coscholastic area of Life Skills, Attitudes and Values, Sports and Games as well as Co-Curricular activities. The CCE scheme aims at addressing this in a holistic manner. A number of National Committees and Commissions in the past have consistently made recommendations regarding reducing emphasis on external examination and encouraging internal assessment through School-Based Continuous and Comprehensive Evaluation. Therefore, the CCE scheme brings about a paradigm shift from examination to effective pedagogy.

 

Highlights of the CCE Scheme

1. Scheme of the Board
1.1 Senior Secondary Schools

a) There will be no Class X Board Examination w.e.f. 2011 for students studying in CBSE’s Senior Secondary schools and who do not wish to move out of the CBSE system after Class X.

b) However, such students of Senior Secondary Schools who wish to move out of the CBSE system after Class X (Pre-University, Vocational course, Change of Board, etc.) will be required to take the Board’s External (pen and paper written/online) Examination.

c) Further, those students who wish to assess themselves vis-à-vis their peers or for self assessment will be allowed to appear in an On Demand (pen and paper/ online) Proficiency test.

Secondary Schools

The students studying in CBSE’s Secondary schools will however be required to appear in Board’s External (pen and paper written/online) Examination because they will be leaving the secondary school after Class X.

1.3 All Schools

1.3.1 The Continuous and Comprehensive Evaluation (CCE) will be strengthened in all affiliated schools with effect from October, 2009 in Class IX.

1.3.2 An Optional Aptitude Test developed by the CBSE will also be available to the students. The Aptitude Test along with other school records and CCE would help students, parents and teachers in deciding the choice of subjects in Class XI.All students of Class X in the current academic year will be taking the CBSE Board’s Class X 2010 Examination. The CBSE will be conducting this Examination. The weightage of the school based assessment will remain the same as per past practice, i.e. 20% each in the subjects of Science, Social Science and Mathematics.

1.3.3 The new Grading system will be introduced at Secondary School level (for Classes IX & X) effective from 2009-10 Academic Session. The details of grading scheme are being circulated in a separate advisory to schools.

 

 

 What is CCE ?

 

The CCE or Continuous and Comprehensive Evaluation

scheme refers to a school-based evaluation of students

that covers all the aspects of a student’s development.

Continuous means 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, etc. Comprehensive on

the other hand attempts to cover both the scholastic and

the co-scholastic aspects of a student’s growth and

development — with both these aspects of the evaluation

process being assessed through Formative and

Summative Assessments.

 

           CCE Guidelines and Pattern

 

Continuous and Comprehensive Evaluation refers to a

system of school based assessment that covers all

aspects of student’s development.

It emphasizes two fold objectives.Continuity in evaluation

and assessment of broad based learning.

CCE helps in reducing stress of students by :-

 Identifying learning progress of students at regular

time intervals on small portions of content.

 Employing a variety of remedial measures of

teaching based on learning needs and potential of

different students.

 Desisting from using negative comments on the

learner’s performance.

 Encouraging learning through employment of a

variety of teaching aids and techniques.

 Involving learners actively in the learning process.

 Recognizing and encouraging specific abilities of

students, who do not excel in academics but perform

well in other co-curricular areas.

 

TEACHERS SHOULD KEEP IN MIND

 

 Use a variety of tools (oral, projects, presentations) .

 Understand different learning styles and abilities.

 Share the assessment criteria with the students.

 Allow peer and self assessment.

 Give an opportunity to the student to improve.

 

            Important Points :

 

 CCE will cover the scholastic and co scholastic areas

of school education.

 The two types of assessment referred to in the

circular are formative and summative. The

periodicity of the two types of assessment are four

and twice a year respectively.

 Formative Assessment totals to 40% weightage.

 Summative Assessment totals to 60% weightage.

 There are nine grades in Part A of Scholastic

assessment and Part B of the same assessment has

five grades.

 Summative assessment covers non academic areas

like attitudes and skills and there are three grades.

 If a student secures Grade 6 in the academic areas

his/her marks would range from 51% to 60%.

 CCE advocates absolute grading. This means that

Grade 9 would imply an A2 grade.

 The academic term will be divided into two terms.

 

 CBSE CCE System in Classes VI, VII and VIII

 

he assessment will cover both scholastic and coscholastic

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 may be bifurcated for the two terms.

There will be four Formative Assessments each of with a

weighting of 10% each. There are two Summative

Assessments (SA1 and SA2) with a weighting of 30%

each.

T

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

= 50%

 Second Term : FA3 (10%) + FA4(10%) + SA2

(30%) = 50%

Formative Assessment can be carried through using

multiple modes of assessment such as assignments,

quizzes, debates, Group discussions, Projects and only

one 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.

Subject: Promotion Policy for Class IX under the scheme of

Continuous and

Comprehensive Evaluation (CCE)

You are aware that the Central Board of Secondary Education

introduced examination reforms and the scheme of Continuous and

Comprehensive Evaluation in its affiliated schools from

October, 2009 in Class IX. The related information and details were

made available to schools through Circular No.39 dated. 20th

September.2009, Circular No.40 dated 29th September,

2009 and Circular No.42 dated 12th October, 2009 as well as a number

of other circulars issued

later.

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. The schools have provided

essential facilities as well as necessary learning experiences to help the

students acquire these skills, attitudes, values and abilities before

assessment.

As far as overall assessment of a student for the purpose of promotion to

next class is concerned, the following points should be kept in mind and

adhered to:

 

 

 

 

       I. General

(A) The assessment of students in terms of grades in scholastic as well

as co-scholastic

areas is to be done as per the directions issued by the Board through

different circulars issued from time to time.

(B) The year-end subject wise grades of a student in Class IX are to

be calculated on the basis of performance in all formative assessments

and summative Assessments in scholastic areas as well as grades

obtained in co-scholastic areas.

(C) In scholastic areas, all the five main subjects i.e. two languages,

Mathematics, Science and Social Science are to be considered at par for

promotion purpose.

 

II. Assigning weightage to Co-scholastic areas for Promotion purpose

 

(D) The grades in co-scholastic areas may be included in awarding

overall grade to every student as per the following procedure:

(i) The grades obtained in different co-scholastic areas may be converted

into grade points by using the following conversion scale:

Life Skills

A+ ---------------5

A ---------------4

B+ ---------------3

B ---------------2

C ----------------1

All other Co- scholastic Areas

A+--------------3

A --------------2

B --------------1

(ii) Total grade points earned by any student may be calculated by

adding grade points for all co-scholastic areas as per the above

conversion scale.

(iii) A student who gets A+ in all the categories of co-scholastic areas

included in the report card will earn 42 grade points according to the

above scale. {Life skill (15),attitudes and values (15), co-curricular

activities (6) and Health and physical education (6)}.

(iv) Those students who get total grade points in the range 34-42, may

benefit by getting upgraded to the next higher grade in two subjects in

scholastic areas.

(v) Those students who get total grade points in the range 19-33, may

benefit by getting upgraded to the next higher grade in one subject in

scholastic areas.

(vi) If a student gets less than 19 total grade points in co-scholastic

areas, separate remark may be made in the report card stating that

participation and achievement in co-scholastic areas needs improvement.

However, this should not affect the student’s promotion to higher class.

(vii) A star may be put on every up-scaled grade to indicate that the final

grade has been arrived after including the achievement of the student in

co-scholastic areas. A footnote in this regard may be given at

appropriate place in the report card.

(viii) The benefit of upscaling the grade in different subjects may start

from the subject in which a student obtains lowest grade followed by

next higher grade and so on.

(ix) 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 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 upscaled

to the next higher grade in two subjects provided this benefit has

not been given to the student under the aforesaid grade point scheme.

III. Promotion to Higher Class

(E) Every student is required to get a qualifying grade D or above in all

the subjects excluding 6th additional subject as per scheme of study for

the purpose of promotion to next class.

(F) A student getting E1 or E2 grade in scholastic areas in one or more

subjects will have to improve his/her performance in one subsequent

attempt to obtain qualifying Grade D in these subjects.

(G) 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.

(H) It is mandatory to appear in both Summative Assessments during the

academic year.

 

IV. Improvement Chance

(I) After summative assessment II in class IX, a student will get only one

more chance for improvement to obtain a qualifying grade D. This is

also applicable to those students who are not able to appear in

summative assessment due to sickness.

(J) This chance may be provided preferably within a time of one month

from the time of declaration of final result. Some flexibility in time

schedule for conduct of improvement examination may be kept in mind

for convenience of all.

 

V. Syllabus

(K) Syllabus for improvement examination should be same as that of SA

II. The school will prepare its own question paper for improvement

examination based on design of SA II. Due care may be taken to ensure

that the standard of this question paper is comparable to question paper

used for SA II.
