What is CCE ? The CCE or Continuous and Comprehensive Evaluation scheme refers to a school-based evaluation of students that covers all the aspects of a students development. Continuous means regular assessments, frequency of unit testing, analysis of learning gaps, applying corrective measures, retesting and giving feedback to teachers and students for their self-evaluation, etc. Comprehensive on the other hand attempts to cover both the scholastic and the co-scholastic aspects of a students growth and development with both these aspects of the evaluation process being assessed through Formative and Summative Assessments.

Advantages

One of the upsides of the CCE system is that it aims to help reduce stress in students because they work alongside the students individually and guide them depending on their specific strengths and ability. In addition, they refrain from using negative language if a student can't complete a project or understand something. They also pride themselves on encouraging students to excel in areas that they are stronger in.

The CCE system also focuses on holistic education which aims to develop various aspects of a student's personality which ultimately helps them identify what they are better at and stronger at in terms of academics.

There is no pressure for students to become highly academic because they aim to encourage individuals to choose subjects based on their interests while retaining the importance of academia. They aim to make the students feel more relaxed so they improve on their academic ability without feeling under pressure.

Disadvantages

A downside of the CCE system is the grading system. This is because the bracket is very wide, for example students that score between 90 and 100 will get an A* grade. You may see this as a positive scheme because it gives the chance for more students to receive a higher grade, however, a student that scores 8 more points than someone else but doesn't receive a better grade may seem unfair.

Despite the system aiming to lessen stress, the grading system may in fact cause more stress for the students. For example, a student may feel more pressure to get a higher grade because the grade margin is substantially larger than you would expect.

How CCE Changed the life of Teachers and Students


Evaluation system leaves teachers stressed. Bright students dont feel challenged.

The number of students in the class is the same. But this year, Meenakshi Sant finds the number overwhelming. Teaching is not the same anymore, said Sant, a Class 9 teacher at Mini Model School, Janakpuri. Our lives have changed overnight, Assessment on a regular basis under Continuous Comprehensive Evaluation (CCE) unlike last years year-end evaluation has inflated their work. Maintaining several registers for recording academic and non-academic achievements has made the process cumbersome. Stress, as a result has just changed hands from the students to the teachers.

There isnt enough time in one period to say, conduct a quiz or have a discussion on a certain topic and also evaluate all the children at the same time. said Indrani Bhattacharjee, a social science teacher at St. Xaviers School. CCE was implemented in the middle of the last academic session. Though training sessions were organised for principals teachers, confusion on the issue still persists. A little disgruntled, teachers, however, are still on board the CCE train.Getting the brighter students to do the same is one of the biggest challenges in the way of implementing the new evaluation system in its true letter ami spirit. The biggest worry: dilution of academic standards. I am happy that CCE has helped the non-academically inclined students in maximizing their potential. But at the same time, it has robbed the brighter students of their need to feel challenged, said Aviral Sethi, a class X student of St. Xaviers School Parents of the academically strong children are also not happy. From having their child top the class to not knowing where he or she stands now that is quite disappointing for them, said Nupur Malholra, a Class 10 student of Delhi Public School, Rohini. But more importantly, its the wrong interpretation of the new system that has parents and children across the board most worried. CCEs rule of regular assessment, for instance, has led to many schools putting students under constant scrutiny. The students are obviously not okay with it. I become wry conscious that someone is watching me. It is as if I have to put up an appearance all the time for fear of being graded negatively. said Rajat Bihani, a Class 10 student of Tagore International, East of Kailash
