The CBSE ( Central Board of Secondary Education) is all set to conduct Proficiency test in April, 2014 for class X.
The Proficiency Test measures an individual's abilities and skills in a domain or subject to know how well he/she has learned, understood and internalised the related concepts and principles.
Such a test in language e.g. may assess a student's skills in reading, writing or vocabulary. Similarly a test in science may focus on assessing students' abilities to apply concepts and principles to analyse a given solution, solve a given problem and conduct practical work efficiently. A taste in Mathematics may similarly assess problem solving abilities and skills of mathematical thinking, mathematical reasoning and procedural techniques followed by students.
Thus, the proposed Proficiency Test will mainly focus on assessing students' abilities and skills to apply knowledge and understanding of any subject to new and unfamiliar everyday life situations.
