CONTINUOUS AND COMPREHENSIVE EVALUATION (CCE)

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 Co-scholastic.

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.

cce 1 CCE System

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.
