CBSE Board – Central Board of Secondary Education.
CBSE affiliates all Kendriya Vidyalayas, all Jawahar Navodaya Vidyalayas, private schools and most of the schools approved by central government of India.
The Board is devoted to offer quality education to encourage intellectual, social and cultural liveliness among its learners. It serves towards evolving a learning process and environment, which develops the future citizens to become global leaders in the promising knowledge society.
CBSE board believes in GRADE rather than PERCENTAGE or MARKS to avoid the comparison between students. CBSE board is 2 years ahead than SSC board, they believe in conducting competent exams. We here at GEMS follow LSWR and CCE pattern in CBSE board.
- Grade I & II – CBSE board conducts monthly cycle exams for grade I & II. It’s an assessment of whatever is taught on monthly basis. We call it as cycle exam as it’s conducted in 1st or 2nd week of the consecutive month.
- Grade III to X – CBSE board conducts 6 (six) exams in a year for grade III to X. Out of these 4(four) are formative and 2(two) summative exams i.e. in first term students appear for 2(two) Formative and 1(one) summative exams.
The goal of formative assessment is to monitor student learning to provide ongoing feedback that can be used by instructors to improve their teaching and by students to improve their learning. More specifically, formative assessments:
- help students identify their strengths and weaknesses and target areas that need work
- help faculty recognize where students are struggling and address problems immediately
- Examples of formative assessments include asking students to:
- draw a concept map in class to represent their understanding of a topic
- submit one or two sentences identifying the main point of a lecture
- turn in a research proposal for early feedback
The goal of summative assessment is to evaluate student learning at the end of an instructional unit by comparing it against some standard or benchmark.
Examples of summative assessments include:
- a midterm exam
- a final project
- a paper
- a senior recital
Information from summative assessments can be used formatively when students or faculty use it to guide their efforts and activities in subsequent courses.
