CCE Content

Continuous and Comprehensive Evaluation (CCE) refers to a system of school-based evaluation that provides a holistic profile of the learner through regular assessment of both scholastic as well as co-scholastic areas.

Scholastic areas include formative and summative assessment. Each term will have two formative and one summative assessment.
Co-scholastic activities include literary, aesthetic & performing skills and clubs. Health and physical education will also form an integral part of this assessment. Co-Scholastic areas will be assessed on life skills, attitudes & values.

Formative assessment is thus carried out during a course of instruction to provide continuous feedback to both the teachers and the learners in order to take decisions regarding appropriate modifications in the transactional procedures and learning activities. Formative assessment includes oral test, group discussions, quiz, seminars, debates, class test, MCQ’s, Projects, Assignments etc.
Summative assessment is carried out at the end of a course of learning. It measures or 'sums-up' how much a student has learned from the course. It is a graded test, i.e., it is marked according to a scale or set of grades. Summative Assessment (Pen & Paper Test) will be conducted at the end of each term.
