Central Board of Secondary Education, New Delhi has issued a teachers manual on CCE for class 9 and class 10. The new scheme of continuous and comprehensive evaluation is being implemented in class 9th from the current session 2009-2010 and the same will be implemented in class 10th too from next session i.e. 2010-2011. In this new grading scheme, CBSE will not take board exam for class 10 and a Certificate of School Based Assessment will be issued by the school authorities as per the guidelines given by CBSE.
The proposed Certificate of School Based Assessment is divided into three parts.

Two terms have been suggested during a year, term 1 from April to September and term 2 from October to March for classes 9th as well as 10th. Each term will carry two formative and one summative assessment. The grading scale for scholastic domain is a nine point scale based on direct grading.
