and Comprehensive Evaluation
Continuous and Comprehensive
Evaluation (CCE) refers to a system of school-based evaluation of
students that covers all aspects of students development.
It is a developmental process of assessment which emphasizes on two
fold objectives. These objectives are continuity in evaluation and
assessment of broad based learning and behaviourial outcomes on the
other. In this scheme the term `continuous' is meant to emphasise
that evaluation of identified aspects of students `growth and
development' is a continuous process rather than an event, built
into the total teaching-learning process and spread over the entire
span of academic session. It means regularity of assessment,
frequency of unit testing, diagnosis of learning gaps, use of
corrective measures, retesting and for their self evaluation.
The second term `comprehensive'
means that the scheme attempts to cover both the scholastic and the
coscholastic aspects of students' growth and development. Since
abilities, attitudes and aptitudes can manifest themselves in forms
other then the written word, the term refers to application of
variety of tools and techniques (both testing and non-testing) and
aims at assessing a learner's development in areas of learning like
The scheme is thus a
curricular initiative, attempting to shift emphasis from testing to
holistic learning. It aims at creating good citizens possessing
sound health, appropriate skills and desirable qualities besides
academic excellence. It is hoped that this will equip the learners
to meet the challenges of life with confidence and success.
