The Curriculum has been designed to enhance creative and critical thinking abilities , interpersonal and mutual proficiencies, communication skills and media information skills. The Students are assessed on the basis of CCE (Continuous and Comprehensive Evaluation) system recently introduced by CBSE. The evaluation is focused on testing the overall performance of the students. This Curriculum leads to a stress free skill oriented student's friendly approach.
The CCE has come into vogue to make learning stress-free and enjoyable for students. CCE helps in improving student's performance by identifying his/her learning difficulties at regular time intervals right from the beginning of the academic session and employing suitable remedial measures for enhancing their learning performance.
The scheme of continuous and comprehensive evaluation has inbuilt flexibility for schools to plan their own academic schedules as per specified guidelines on CCE. The academic year consists of three terms from June - Sep and Oct - Dec & Jan - Mar. Each term will have TWO Formative Assessments and ONE Summative Assessment.
The CCE enables students to learn at their own pace. For CCE to be effective regular attendance of the students becomes mandatory, since the formative assessment (FA) will be conducted round the year. The FAs can be in the form of quizzes, class projects, paper presentation, power point presentation, puppetry, chart work, models etc. The Co-scholastic areas are assessed in two parts. They are Life Skills, Attitudes and Values. Life Skills consist of Thinking Skills, Social Skills and Emotional Skills. Due credit is given for attitudes and values. This will help enhance credits in scholastic areas. Sports and Yoga are given equal importance along with Academics. Club activities contribute vitally to the overall development of a child.
Parents play a vital role in the successful implementation of the CCE. They must understand that healthy competition is necessary for a child's growth and not unhealthy comparison. Pressurizing the children to perform better beyond their capabilities is not the aim of CCE. Multiple intelligence comes into focus through CCE, enabling students to emerge as holistic individuals.
