Curriculum Assessment Pattern (CCE)

The term Education – broadly means The act or process of imparting or acquiring knowledge, and skills which will enable an individual to have a better life in future”. 

To have a formal education there is a need to have a “curriculum” – which is a set of courses and their content. 

In 2009, CBSE came out with CCE for grade 9 and 10. CCE refers to ‘A system of school based evaluation of a student which covers all aspects of development’. 

This system of evaluation is expected to be based on two premises :

  • A Continuous evaluation and assessment of broad based learning;
  • Lessons learnt and knowledge gained should reveal a transformation in terms of attitude and behaviour patterns of the students at school and in the community 

The term ‘continuous’ means evaluation is not an one-time event, it is a composite aggregate of – regularity of assessment ; diagnosis of learning gaps; use of corrective measures; feedback and self-evaluation.

Term ‘comprehensive’ means that this system of evaluation attempts to cover both:

  • Scholastic
  • Co-scholastic aspects of a student’s growth and development.

The major thrust of CCE is on continuous growth of student in the following fields: 

  • Intellectual
  • Emotional
  • Physical
  • Cultural and
  • Social development

Thus teaching at school is expected to be:

  •  Interdisciplinary and holistic
  •  Promote Critical thinking and problem-solving skills amongst students
  •  Should involve students in Participatory decision making
  •  Should be Locally relevant in a global context
  •  Multi-method, multi-sourced, multi-accessed
  •  Should aim at Skill and Capacity building
  •  Should Inculcating values
  •  Should encourage Respect for tradition, culture, knowledge, diversity
