The Central Board of Secondary Education has always been following a marking system in their class 10 Board examination, i.e. awarding marks to students answer sheets. Though with Board exams being made optional from the academic year 2010-11, a brand new system of evaluation – Continuous and Comprehensive Evaluation (CCE) – according to grades continues to be approved. It comprises formative and summative assessment of the student to get done over two terms-first and second during the year long academic calendar.
Summative Assessment: Based on the term-end examination.
1) There will be two evaluations each in the first and second terms.
2) Each evaluation will carry 10 marks a piece.
Formative Assessment: To judge and grade class work, homework, assignment and project work.
1) There will be one term-end exam for each term.
2) The first term-end exam will carry 20 marks.
3) The second term-end exam will carry 40 marks.
Which means this just how the new grading system continues to be framed for many students, to discontinue the concept of declaring Compartment/Fail. The CBSE 12th Result 2018 of candidates is now declared in two categories: Qualified for qualifying certificate (QUAL) and Qualified to receive improvement of performance (EIOP). All candidates, even should they have failed in all subjects can have five chances to enhance their performance without needing to repeat a year.Students of class IX and X will be evaluated on a 9-point grading system. Each grade, given on the basis of both formative and summative assessments, will match a variety of marks as
Thus this is how the newest grading system for class 10 works like. It is a helpful hand for those teachers in addition to students and is also gradually been accepted by all the other boards also in next couple of years. But there are lots of negative takings from parents and students as well as history-long marking system completely replaced by way of a grading product is not that easy-to-be-digested. Because the mentality of giving exams and getting marks in numbers is actually a tradition based on which further exams are now being assessed in a student’s mind, such is the planning. But a sudden tide changing the entire scenario gives a jerk to this system for that students and also the parents. They within their childhood had given board exams and got marks but the case with their children is different. Now they must all together accept and get used to an entirely new marking system, as well as all calculations concerning the ‘preparation’ for his or her first board exams gets messed up and a new system needs to be adopted efficiently and quickly.
But every aspect has its own negative and positive features. The negative the initial one is all discussed above and the positive the initial one is also there- this grading system helps eradicate the problem of fails, compartments which within the mean time leads to several suicide and suicide attempts from students regarding their poor marks. Yes this is a good fqgmoa in view with this since it helps with maintaining a balanced position for all students so it helps the poor ones in studies to boost fine and dandy for betterment in future. This method has many scopes for every student to produce himself/herself all year round to score better grades.
Thus this new grading system of CBSE Board is actually all balanced and is also accepted by students and parents well. It could take a little more time and energy to be digested however it is indeed a good decision, a minimum of bearing in mind the betterment of children.
