Continuous and Comprehensive Evaluation

About CCE:

Continuous and comprehensive evaluation is an education system newly introduced by Central Board of Secondary Education in India, for students of sixth to tenth grades.

Main Aim of CCE:

The main aim of CCE is to evaluate every aspect of the child during their presence at the school. This is believed to help reduce the pressure on the child during/before examinations as the student will have to sit for multiple tests throughout the year, of which no test or the syllabus covered will be repeated at the end of the year, whatsoever. The CCE method is claimed to bring enormous changes from the traditional chalk and talk method of teaching, provided it is implemented accurately.

Standard of Marks and Grades

In CCE, the marks obtained in an exam are usually not revealed. However, equivalent grades, which would be deduced using a special method by the teachers during evaluation would be revealed. This is considered as a drawback since a child with 92 marks will get the same grade as the child with 100 marks and their talents cannot be recognized by anyone else other than their teachers. Though this system might have some drawbacks it instills this value that students need to compete with themselves to get a better grade and not with others. The grading system is as follows.-

CGPA Grade
9.1-10.0 A1+
8.1-9.0 A2
7.1-8.0 B1
6.1-7.0 B2
5.1-6.0 C1
4.1-5.0 C2
3.1-4.0 D
2.1-3.0 E1
0.0-2.0 E2
