The course curriculum on “Introductory Information Technology” at Secondary Level is the Foundation course for all other courses relating to Computer Science/Multimedia and Web Technology/Informatics Practices/Information Technology Applications in classes XI & XII.

Keeping this in view, CBSE has renamed the course curriculum “Introductory Information Technology” at Secondary Level as “Foundation of Information Technology” from the session 2009-2010 for Class IX and 2010-2011 for Class X with necessary changes in the course content of the subject.

Some of the basic characteristics of “Foundation of Information Technology” are
1. It does not recommend any proprietary software.
2. The skills/competencies realized through this course are holistic in the context of vertical mobility both in vocational as well as in academic fields.
3. Use of open software has been recommended.
4. All the commands are functional and generic.

The evaluation scheme of this course has also been modified as follows:

Theory Examination    60 marks

Practical Examination 20 + 20 = 40 marks

The Practical Examination has two components:

a) Hands-on school based year-end practical examination (Internal in Classes IX & X) 20 marks
b) Practical skill based Multiple-choice question type year-end written examination (External in Class X) 20 marks

These modifications have been reflected in the Secondary School Curriculum document 2011, Vol. I (Main subjects)
