Our school is very keen in implementing the Continuous and Comprehensive Evaluation Scheme with a Pragmatic outlook.
CCE- Continuous and Comprehensive Evaluation
CCE- Continuous and Comprehensive Evaluation refers to a system of school based evaluation of student that covers all aspects of students development. It is a development process of student which emphasizes on two fold objectives.These objectives are continually in evaluation and assessment of broad based learning and behavioral outcomes on the other.
It is a continuous evaluation process rather than an event and built into the total teaching learning process and spread over the entire span of academic session. Since abilities, attitudes and aptitudes can manifest themselves in forms other than the written word, the term Comprehensive refers to application of variety of tools and techniques and aims of assessing a learner’s development in areas of learning like knowledge, understanding, applying, analyzing, evaluating, creating etc.
The CCE evaluation is used as a quality control device to maintain desired standard of performance and to make the process of teaching and learning a student-centered activity.
The ‘comprehensive’ component of CCE takes care of assessment of all round development of child’s personality. It includes assessment in Scholastic as well as Co-Scholastic aspects of student’s growth.
The major emphasis of CCE is on the continuous growth of students ensuring their intellectual, emotional, physical, cultural and social development and therefore it will not be merely limited to assessment of student’s scholastic attainments.
Formative and Summative Assessment
Formative Assessment is a tool used by the teacher to continuously monitor student progress in a supportive environment. It involves regular descriptive feedback, provides a platform for the active involvement of students in their own learning. Incorporates varied learning styles to decide how and what to teach.
Summative Assessment is carried out at the end of a course of learning and is generally taken by students at the end of a semester to demonstrate the sum of what they have or have not learned. An academic year is divided into two semester, June to September and October to March. Summative assessment methods are the most traditional way of evaluating student work.
The desirable behavior related to student’ life skills, attitudes, interests, values, co-curricular activities and physical health are described as skills to be acquired in co-scholastic domain. The analysis of records raised as result of periodic observation is done to validate the attainment of the quality resulting in growth in the co-scholastic areas. The grades and descriptive indicators are assigned on the basis of the degree of the attainment of a particular skill or behavioral outcome.
Medium of Instruction:
Being a CBSE school, the medium of instruction is English. Besides, Malayalam and Hindi language are being taught with due importance. Having felt the need to improve the proficiency of our students in English we have introduced the ‘Communicative English’ and ‘English promoters Club’ in the campus. Two periods per week per class are allotted exclusively for improving the standard of English handled by well qualified teachers.
For the academic year 2016-2017 the school has more than 2000 students on roll, 76 teaching staff and 38 non-teaching staff. However the strength of each class will be limited to 35 only in a division.
The school bus facilities are available to all the students of the locality and even for outstation students. The buses are operating within a radius of 25 kilometers. At present we have 17 buses.
The Open House System enables the parents to have an active and creative exchange of ideas with the principal, class teachers and subject teachers before and after each and every examination. This enhances a proper communication between the parents and the teachers to take remedial measures and ensures the progress of every child.
