Latest Update - Assessment and Evaluation Practice
- May 23,2022
Subject: Assessment and Evaluation Practices of the Board for the Session 2022-23 National Education Policy 2020 has affirmed the need to move from rote to competency-based learning. This will equip the learners with key competencies to meet the challenges of the 21st century proactively. Accordingly, the Board has taken multiple steps towards the implementation of Competency-Based Education (CBE) in schools. These range from aligning assessment to CBE, development of exemplar resources for teachers and students on CBE pedagogy and assessment and continued teacher capacity building. In this context the Board has released Circular No. Acad-05/2019 dated 18.01.2019; Circular No. Acad-11/2019 dated 06.03.2019; Circular No. Acad-18/2020 dated 16.03.2020; Circular No. Acad-32/2020 dated 14.05.2020 and Circular No. Acad-31/2020 dated 22.04.2021. In continuation to these circulars, the Board is initiating further corresponding changes in the Examination and Assessment practices for the year 2022- 23 to align assessment to Competency Based Education. Therefore, in the forthcoming sessions a greater number of Competency Based Questions or questions that assess application of concepts in real-life/ unfamiliar situations will be part of the question paper.
