The Central Board of Secondary Education has introduced Examination Reforms and Continuous & Comprehensive Evaluation in its affiliated schools from this academic year. The detailed scheme has already been intimated to all Heads of schools vide our Circular Nos. 39,40,42,50,51,52,54,61,62 and 63 (2009).

The scheme is in operation in all CBSE affiliated schools in Class IX w.e.f. Oct. 2009 i.e. the second term. Under this two Formative Assessments and one Summative Assessment is to be done. The schools have done / are already doing Formative Assessments during the second term, and Summative Assessment for this term is to be conducted now.

Under this end term Summative Assessment-II, the students will be tested internally based on the following criteria:-
a) Syllabus and Examination Question Paper Design in different subjects for Class IX Summative Assessment II will be the same as circulated by the Board earlier. The same is also available on CBSE website www.cbse.nic.in under CCE corner.

b) The Summative assessment will be in the form of a pen-paper test conducted by the schools themselves.

c) In order to ensure standardization and to ensure uniformity, the Question Paper Banks in different subjects are being sent by the Board to schools in February 2010.

d) In order to cater to the difference in the pace at which students respond to questions, schools will give flexible timing to students for attempting the question papers. This may vary from 3 to 3½ hours.

e) Evaluation of answer scripts will be done by the school teachers themselves on the basis of the Marking Scheme provided by the Board.

f) There will be random verification of the assessment procedures carried out by schools by the Board officials/nominees appointed by the Board.

It has been decided to provide question paper banks for English Communicative, English Language & Literature, Hindi-A, Hindi-B, Mathematics, Science, Social Science, Communicative Sanskrit. In respect of other subjects/languages, the schools will administer their own question paper based on the sample question paper available on the CBSE’s website, and intimated earlier. [..]
