Private schools fail to adopt CCE system


Posted On: 5-11-2013
Although the State government has made it mandatory for schools in the state to switch over to the Continuous and Comprehensive Evaluation (CCE) last academic year, many private schools have failed to fall in line with the government's decision. With the government keen on implementing it all over the state without any exemption - be it in government, private or aided schools - a Government Order (GO) has been passed in this regard.

The State government GO Ms. No.60 issued on October 24 states, "After careful examination of the matter, the government has considered a proposal and hereby issues orders that Continuous and Comprehensive Evaluation for assessing academic achievements of children shall be adopted in all schools which come under the purview of school education."

Following the enactment of Right to Education Act in 2009, the Union Ministry of Human Resource Development has made it compulsory for schools all over the country to adopt the CCE model. It was aimed at mitigating the stress of students who undergo severe depression as they have to perform well during the annual examination. Instead, in the new system, students are evaluated continuously without having to write one final examination. Ranks and marks are replaced by grades.

Here, there are two methods of assessment: summative and formative assessments. In a given academic year, there are three summative and six formative tests. "In the summative system, a student's ability to learn a subject matter is evaluated, while the formative assessment deals with student's classroom participation, project work and other aspects. The chapters on which once a test is conducted, will not be repeated," explained S. Seshadri, a school teacher from Chittor.

The State Council of Education Research and Training (SCERT) and the Rajiv Vidya Mission (RVM) are the apex bodies in the state to implement the changes. However, the private schools have compromised with the mandated changes due to poor enforcement. "The GO is targeted at the private schools, otherwise it is well implemented in the government schools. Now that the government has ratified the method, we will ensure that the system is further streamlined and effectively enforced even in private schools," said V Usha Rani, state project director for RVM.

However, she clarified that it was not a time-bound process and minor changes will be carried out regularly based on suggestions from experts to make the system better. Admitting that the changes were yet to become fully operational in many schools, SCERT director G Gopal Reddy said, "This a major overhaul from the existing system of evaluation and many schools and teachers are yet to come to terms with this. So it will take a few years before it becomes fully operational and effective."
