Open House for Grade X
As you are aware, the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) has done away with the Continuous and Comprehensive Evaluation (CCE) scheme and replaced it with a Uniform System of Assessment and Examination to be followed by its affiliated schools for classes 6 to 9 as well as it has restored the Board Examination for grade X effective, Academic year 2017 -18.
The move that aims at standardizing teaching and evaluation across schools will be implemented from the upcoming academic session.
Please note that under the CCE scheme, which was in place since 2009, the students were assessed based on two term-end ‘summative assessments’ and four ‘formative assessments’ (two each in each terms). Sixty percent of the assessment was pen-paper test, while 40% formative assessments during the year was continuous evaluation by teachers based on various activities.
According to the new CBSE guidelines, there will still be two terms but the pen-papers test weightage will be 90% including 80 marks for half yearly or yearly exam and 10 marks of the 20 marks set aside for periodic assessment in each term.
In view of the above, the school is organizing an open-House for grade X parents on Saturday, 15 April 2017 from 9:00 a.m. to 10:00a.m.in the Gym room to bring the teachers and parents under one roof and talk about academics and allied issues.
We look forward to your support and cooperation.
You are kindly requested to attend the same.
