CBSE asks schools to reduce homework and the number of tests

Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) has asked affiliated schools to reduce homework and the number of tests being given to children as part of formative assessment. The board was responding to feedback from parents and students on the implementation of Continuous and Comprehensive Evaluation (CCE) scheme introduced in schools as an educational reform last year.
