The Central Board of Secondary Education has always been following a marking system in their class 10 Board examination, i.e. awarding marks to students answer sheets. Though with Board exams being made optional from the academic year 2010-11, a whole new system of evaluation – Continuous and Comprehensive Evaluation (CCE) – based upon grades has been approved. It comprises formative and summative assessment of the student to be done over two terms-first and second during the year long academic calendar.
Summative Assessment: Based on the term-end examination.
1) There will be two evaluations each in the foremost and second terms.
2) Each evaluation will carry 10 marks a piece.
Formative Assessment: To judge and grade class work, homework, assignment and project work.
1) You will have one term-end exam for each and every term.
2) The first term-end exam will carry 20 marks.
3) The next term-end exam will carry 40 marks.
So this the way the new grading system has been framed for all students, to discontinue the practice of declaring Compartment/Fail. The CBSE 12th Result 2018 of candidates is now declared by two categories: Eligible for qualifying certificate (QUAL) and Qualified to receive improvement of performance (EIOP). All candidates, even if they have failed in all subjects will now have five chances to enhance their performance without having to repeat annually.Students of class IX and X will likely be evaluated over a 9-point grading system. Each grade, given on the basis of both formative and summative assessments, will match a range of marks as
Thus this is the way the brand new grading system for class 10 works like. It really is a helpful hand for those teachers as well as students and is gradually been accepted by all the other boards too in next few years. But there are many negative takings from parents and students in addition to history-long marking system completely replaced with a grading method is not that easy-to-be-digested. Because the mentality of giving exams and obtaining marks in numbers is a tradition based on which further exams are being assessed in a student’s mind, such is definitely the planning. But an abrupt tide changing the entire scenario offers a jerk to this particular system for that students and also the parents. They in their childhood had given board exams and got marks however the case making use of their children is unique. Now they must altogether accept and get accustomed to a totally new marking system, as well as all calculations concerning the ‘preparation’ for first board exams gets messed up along with a new system must be adopted efficiently and quickly.
But every aspect does have its good and bad features. The negative one is all discussed above and the positive the initial one is also there- this grading system helps eradicate the situation of fails, compartments which within the mean time results in several suicide and suicide attempts from students regarding their poor marks. Yes this is a good fqgmoa because of the since it helps in maintaining a balanced position for all students helping the poor ones in studies to improve well and good for his or her betterment in future. This system has a lot of scopes for each and every student to produce himself/herself all through the year to score better grades.
Thus this new grading system of CBSE Board is perhaps all balanced and is accepted by students and parents well. It may take a bit more time to be digested but it is indeed a great decision, a minimum of bearing in mind the betterment of children.
