Continuous Comprehensive Evaluation (CCE) refers to a system of school based evaluation of student that covers all aspects of students development, Continuous means regularity of assessment, frequency of unit testing, diagnosis of learning gaps, use of corrective measures, retesting and feedback of evidence to teachers and students for their self evaluation. Since abilities, attitudes and aptitude can manifest themselves in forms other than 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 with areas of learning like knowledge, understanding comprehension, applying, analyzing, evaluating, creating etc.
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. Thus, the basic theme of the scheme includes objective based instruction, continuous evaluations, diagnostic testing and remedial instructions in all areas of learning growth.
In order to make the evaluation comprehensive, CCE attempts to cover every relevant aspects of a child’s personality, behaviour and performance within diverse learning situation. It respects the cardinal principle of holistic development by covering the cognitive, affective and phychomotor domains, so that the head, the heart and hand are harmoniously developed. Thus it incorporates both scholastic and co-scholastic aspects of education. Besides subjects like languages, social science, mathematics, science, physical and health education work experience, Art education and computer studies, a student is also assessed for life skills, attitudes and values and participation in different co-curricular outdoor activities.
The essential element implies that evaluation of growth is to be done both continuously and comprehensively. This will help in the identification of the strengths and weaknesses of learners. Evaluation thus becomes a meant to an end and not an end in itself.
CCE, in addition to stimulating the learner’s scholastic growth, aims at promoting physical health, developing in learners life skills building desired attitudes, helping the cultivation of interests and providing opportunities to participate and acquire proficiencies in various co-curricular activities.
The CCE is intended to provide holistic profile of the learner through evaluation of both scholastic and co-scholastic areas spread over two terms each. Each term will have two Formative assessments (weekly/monthly tests, class work, homework, Oral questions, Quizzes, Projects (Group / Individual) Assignments, experiments, conversation / Interviews, Questioning techniques etc.) and one Summative assessment (pen- paper test). Thus a student has to face four formative assessments and two summative assessment during an academic session.
