High School Assessment

Continuous and Comprehensive Evaluation (CCE) refers to a system of school-based evaluation of students that covers all aspects of students’ development. It is a developmental process of assessment which emphasizes on two fold objectives. These objectives are continuity in evaluation and assessment of broad based learning and behaviourial outcomes on the other.

Continuous and Comprehensive Evaluation is a process of assessment introduced by our state government for students of fourth to tenth grades. In this evaluation process, student’s marks are replaced by grades which will be evaluated through a series of curricular and extra-curricular evaluations along with academics.

For classes: VIII & IX

The CCE evaluation consists of two types of tests/exams. Formative and Summative assessments -four FAs and two SAs in an academic year. The first summative or Summative Assessment 1 (SA-1) is conducted after the first and second formatives are completed. The second (SA-2) is conducted after the third and fourth formatives.

The Formative Assessment consists of a Paper-Pen test, an activity and a project evaluating to 10% of the total score, four FAs contributing 40% of the final score, SA-1 and SA-2 contributing to 60%, and the sum of FAs and SAs total.
