Both the eminent bodies of the country like Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) and Center for Assessment, Evaluation and Research (CAER), organised a workshop on 'School Based Examination Model' for the independent CBSE School Principals and Heads.
The programme focused on improving the examination model of the CBSE schools. Apart from this, workshop also aimed at installing leadership qualities in the teachers and community educators.
The board along with the Centre for Assessment, Evaluation and Research conducted a review of assessment practices and trained the principals in various sessions.
These sessions covered various topics like global trends in the examination assessments, stressed on innovative practices held in global schools for the better expression of the knowledge etc. Jim Tognolini, senior researcher from Oxford University, discussed about the global trends in assessments.
According to the new change made by CBSE, instead of having board exam, the board will have Continuous and Comprehensive Evaluation (CCE) system up to Class X.
The workshop cum training program offered tips on leadership qualities to the principals who attended workshop. Besides, training on how to improve assessment models was also the main aspect of conducting this event.
Sadhana Parashar, CBSE director of academics, research, training and innovation took a session on innovative assessment practices.
