Continuous and Comprehensive Evaluation (CCE) refers to a system of school-based evaluation of students that covers all aspects of students development.
The scheme is a curricular initiative, attempting to shift emphasis from testing to holistic learning.
Continual means assessment of students in the beginning of instructions (placement evaluation) and assessment during the instructional process (formative evaluation) done informally using multiple techniques of evaluation.
Periodicity means assessment of performance done frequently at the end of unit/term (summative)The ’comprehensive’ component of CCE takes care of assessment of all round development of thechild’s personality. It includes assessment in Scholastic as well as Co-Scholastic aspects of the pupil’s growth.
Scholastic aspects include curricular areas or subject specific areas, whereas co-scholastic aspects include life skills, co-curricular activiies, attitudes, and values.
The scheme of CCE has been adopted from Class I onwards. In this scheme the entire curriculum for each has been divided into two terms. First Term is from April-September & Second Term is from October-March. In each term two Formative Assessments and one Summative Assessment is done. Assessment is indicated in Grades and Percentile Rank.
