Continuous and Comprehensive Evaluation (CCE) Assessment and Opposition in India

Continuous and Comprehensive evaluation system was introduced by CBSE for students of class 6 to 10. The objective was to provide quality education to the students and to conduct an integrated assessment of students by teachers looking into multiple aspects like academics, arts, humanities, sports, music, athletics.

This system was introduced as it was said that the older method of conducting final exam at the end of the year was not qualitative for most of the students. The old pattern helped students who excelled due to their social, cultural and economic advantage. So to increase the efficiency of education system by giving more practical knowledge to students this system of CCE(Continuous and Comprehensive Evaluation) was introduced.

This system was a result of RTE Act 2009 which said that education for children in age group of 6-14 years is a fundamental right and until the Child completes his elementary education he will not be expelled or held back in any class. It is also not mandatory for him to appear in board exams

Opposition to CCE –

1. The critiques of the system say that pressure on students has not reduced as so many different test have been introduced in CCE.

2. Many students are saying that their school syllabus should be such that it should prepare them for Joint Entrance Exams for IITs and medical exams so that they their chance of living a dignified life increases.

3. Central Advisory Board of Education (CABE) said that through a study conducted by the committee constituted by it, it found that no detention provision of RTE leads to lack of drive in study thereby stimulating parents to migrate their children from Government to private schools.
