"Many schools, especially the elite ones, are not following this. We are now planning to go for a mechanism to check who is following it and who isn't. Since authority to take action is out of our control, we will seek the feedback of schools not following it and then encourage them to do that", he explained.
"Since we launched CCE in 2009, the basic scheme hasn't changed much. Only weightage of summative assessments have been changed. Over years, we have clarified a lot on CCE. The scheme is finalized, but we first want to consolidate it at class 10 level", he added.
On talking about CCE being a stress/pressure on Class 10 students he said "The message of CCE has completely gone wrong with the people. CCE is aimed at changing teaching methodology to match it with the changing times. Till class 10, it is generalised studies, at plus 2 level, it is specialisation. So, slight pressure is there, but class 12 students are mature. The problem is with the teachers who are still continuing with the traditional way of teaching. We carried a random survey to assess the impact of CCE on class 11 students. We found them doing exceedingly well. CCE helps in generating self-study habits in students while teachers play the role of facilitators."
About CCE: The scheme of CCE for classes 10 and 12 to be followed by all the affiliated schools. Under the CCE, a student has to undergo assessments in scholastic as well as Co-scholastic Areas.
