PERIODICAL ASSESSMENT


As we focus our attention on ‘what our students are learning’ alongwith ‘the skill sets they
are acquiring’, it becomes imperative to strengthen current Assessment and Evaluation
Practices and align them to the future requirements of the learners. The Board has always
stressed that its students must acquire the skills of critical thinking, problem solving,
analyzing information, collaboration, effective communication, developing curiosity and
imagination as part of the learning process. You are also aware that the Board continues to
make small changes in the assessment and evaluation practices almost every year to
eventually reach the goal of achieving the aforementioned skills for all its students.
Report card of the National Assessment Survey (2017-18) has indicated that the
performance of CBSE class X students in Mathematics, Science, Social Science, English
and Modern Indian Language is 52%, 51%, 53%, 58% and 62% respectively. Although this
competency-based survey places the CBSE students above the national average, it
indicates that there is ample scope for improvement in their performance.
Further, the decision by MHRD to participate in PISA (Programme for International Student
Assessment) in 2021, has given even more impetus to the requirement of aligning the
Board’s assessment system to future requirements. It may also be mentioned here, that
since the Board has made it mandatory for all its affiliated schools to adopt the Learning
Outcomes vide circular dated 18.01.2019, it is a necessity now that ‘assessment of learning’
must be augmented with ‘assessment as learning’ and ‘assessment for learning’.
In view of above, countrywide consultations were held with CBSE stake holders including
teachers, students, heads of Institutions and experts in the field to suggest ways to
strengthen the Assessment and Evaluation Practices of the Board. It was agreed upon that
the School Based /Internal Assessment needs to be strengthened by incorporating more
diverse strategies. Further, there is need of exposing the students to different types and
formats of questions in the year end/Board examination, so that a large range of learning
outcomes can be assessed. Based on this, following few changes are proposed in the
Assessment and Examination practices for the year 2019-20 onwards. As the next
academic session (2019-20) is going to start from April 2019 onwards, hence a summary
view of the proposed changes in Internal Assessment and Year End/ Board Examinations
are hereby informed in advance.

academic year 2019-20, shall be reflected in the Curriculum document to be published by
