details about CCE in school
C – Continuous
C – Comprehensive
E – Evaluation
Continuous stands for assessment of a student throughout the year, not
just at the end of a term. It may be done formally or in an informal way
using different techniques of evaluation . Comprehensive takes care of
assessment of all round development of a child’s personality. A child will
be assessed not only in terms of his knowledge about a subject but his
participation in other activities also.
Broadly, we assess a child’s growth in two areas – Scholastic and Coscholastic.
The term Scholastic refers to those aspects , which are related to intellect
or the brain. It is related to the assessment of learners in curricular
subjects. It includes assignments, projects, practical etc.
The term Co-scholastic refers to those aspects which are related to hand and heart.
How will the assessment be done ?
A school session is divided into two terms:
First term – April to September. Second term – October to March.
Each term has two Formative Assessments (FA) and one Summative Assessment (SA).
Syllabus covered in the first term will not be included in the second term.
Time Schedule and Weightage
First Term (40%)
 FA I – April to July 10%
 FA 2 – July to Sept. 10%
 SA I – End of Sept. 20%
Second Term (60%)
 FA 3 – Oct. to Dec. 10%
 FA 4 – Dec. to Feb. 10%
 SA 2 – End of March 40%
Formative assessment includes all types of tests, formal and informal. Assessment can be
done during the teaching process or after completing a unit. It includes :
 Class work
 Quizzes
 Home work
 Worksheets
 Oral test
 Assignment
 Group discussion
 Group activity
 Experiments
 Projects
 Conversation/ Interview
The record of FA will be maintained by the class teacher and subject teachers.
This is the most traditional way of testing that is paper pen test based on the curriculum taught
during the specified time period. The question paper of SA will be set by the CBSE.
The centre of examination will be the child’s own school. Answer sheets will be checked by the
school teachers.
The performance of a child in scholastic area will be assessed in terms of marks. Marks will be
known to the student but his report card will show grades only. Marks will be converted into
grades as per following pattern :
91-100 A1 10
81-90 A2 9
71-80 B1 8
61-70 B2 7
51-60 C1 6
41-50 C2 5
33-40 D 4
21-32 E1

Students getting grades D and above are eligible for the promotion in the next class.
Students getting grades E1 or E2 will be given three more chances by the board to get the
qualifying grade. The student will prepare for the improvement exam at home only.
For admissions to class XI, school can decide it’s own criteria.
Optional board exam is on demand only. Names will be forwarded by the school for the same on
written request by the parents.
At the end of class IX and X, CBSE offers an optional aptitude test for all the students.
Names will be forwarded by the school for the same on written request by the parents. It is not corelated
with the admission in class XI.
It is meant only to know the aptitude of your child.
PROFICIENCY TEST is an optional Exam conducted by CBSE.
Names will be forwarded by the school on the request of parents. It is not co-related with the
admission in class XI.
After class X, a student will by a CCE Certificate. The certificate will be filled by the student and
the school. The certificate will be signed by the student, principal and Board official. It carries
student’s profile, class IX performance and class X performance both the areas (scholastic and coscholastic).
 Students should keep the record of their achievements/participation in all the activities
inside or outside the school.
 It is mandatory for every child to appear in both the summative exams. If for some valid
reasons, one fails to appear in any summative exam, he will be given a re-test. After
getting qualifying grades he/she will be promoted to the next class.
Grading Pattern
The CGPA is the average of Grade Points obtained in all the subjects excluding additional 6th subject as per
Scheme of Studies.
An indicative equivalence of Grade Point and Percentage of Marks can be assessed as follows:
 Subject wise indicative percentage of marks = 9.5 x GP of the Subject.
 Overall indicative percentage of marks = 9.5 x CGPA
The above formula given by CBSE to convert grades into marks and percentage is only
an approximation and not exact.
.:: FAQS ::.
Full Form of CGPA ?
Cumulative Grade Point Average.
What is CGPA ?
It is an overall indicative percentage of marks.
How to calculate percentage from CGPA ?
Multiply the CGPA with 9.5 or use the above calculator to get the indicative
Why multiply with 9.5 only ?
The Board took the result of the last five years and calculated the average marks of
all candidates who had scored between 91 and 100. That average turned out to be
close to 95 marks. Since the equivalent Grade Point for the 91-100 band (A1 grade)
of marks is 10, it then divided the average result of 95 by 10. The result is 9.5.
Students’ Misunderstandings about CCE System
As part of the formal and informal feedback from the parents, students,
principals and teachers a few concerns have been raised by a few
stakeholders which are recorded below:
1. Too many tests, assignments, projects, homework and review tests
(in some schools as many as seven review tests per week) are being
2. The projects are being given to students (to be done at home)
which in most cases lead to no real learning as they are either done by
siblings/parents or conveniently outsourced to entrepreneurs who have
set up shop.
3. The stress on students is increasing due to minute microscopic
examination of behaviour which also makes students behave artificially.
4. No real time is being provided to students to play or participate in
Co-Scholastic activities
5. There is an element of subjectivity in assessing skills especially the
co- scholastic skills.
6. Some schools have no Parent Teacher Meeting at all or where it is
convened, it remains a few and far between event.
The Board has also come to know that a section of teachers feel that they
are required to put in more work in the new paradigm by way of
preparing their lesson plans, designing formative activities and evolving
additional teaching-learning materials. It augurs well for the teaching
community that it is now beginning to move away from the textbook
oriented teaching to more creative ways of involving students in
the learning process. Of course, teachers will have to put in greater effort
to improve their teaching on the basis of regular feedback and diagnosis
followed by remedial instruction. Every class is a new experience, unique
in its own way and hence repetitive and mechanical transaction has no
place in the emerging classroom. While teachers may find the additional
work a little challenging or even taxing, they will soon learn to enjoy their
work a lot more seeing their reward in the form of improvement of their
students in all the domains of their personality. Further, once they learn
to plan their work in the initial phase, they will find the schedule more
rewarding and less hectic.
The Board has brought out Teachers’ Manuals on Formative Assessment
in the subjects of Hindi, English, Science and Social Science for class IX
which are available on CBSE website. These manuals are detailed and
exhaustive documents focusing on formative aspects of learning and
provide valuable guidance to the teachers in respective subjects.
Schools have also been advised to familiarize parents and students with
all the material, circulars, and various manuals brought out on CCE
and Formative Assessments. This is essential to provide correct
information to the parents. Moreover the schools need to involve parents
in the changes being made in terms of transaction of syllabus, conduct of
Formative Assessment, conduct of Co-Scholastic Skills and maintaining
records of marks and grades in case of Summative Assessment. It is also
important that schools should not be charged with subjectivity while
evaluating Co- Curricular skills. It is therefore advised that schools should
arrange the evaluation of co curricular skills in such a way that more than
one teacher is involved for assessing Life Skills, Co-Curricular Skills,
Attitudes and Values.
What is not CCE? What is CCE? What can Schools Do?

for Formative Assessment
tools for teaching, learning,
diagnosis and feedback is

Lack of coordination with other
subject teachers resulting in
over assessment of the students
is not CCE.
Teacher’s judgement when
made through an honest and
objective appraisal without
