The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) would use a special software solution to collect and analyse all the data related to Continuous and Comprehensive Evaluation (CCE) scheme.
Sources said that the board had decided to capture data related to CCE from affiliated schools of the board through an application software which would be both offline and online. The software will cover CCE-related data of about 10 lakh candidates from at least 10,500 schools across the country.
“The idea of using technology is to systematise data collection. With the implementation of CCE, data collection has become very important. Every school has a huge amount of data. Technology comes in handy to deal with the vast resources, to preserve and analyse them in a scientific manner,” said a CBSE official.
Sources at CBSE said that the aim of the special software was to standardise the whole process of CCE. “We want to give a universal touch to the whole collection, evaluation and analysis of data, as part of CCE scheme. With the use of high software technology, we will standardise the process of CCE scheme, for both schools and CBSE board,” said an official from the board.
To deploy the technology, the board has asked software firms to bid for a tender to execute its project titled ‘Web-based software development for data collection/ capturing of mark/ descriptive indicators/grades for scholastic and co-scholastic areas’ by December 1.
“We are looking for software firms with at least five years of experience with proven track record of software development for educational institutions and domain expertise in education. The bidder firms should have a previous record of successfully implementing CCE solution or equivalent in at least 10 schools. The agency should have its own software team for study, design, testing and implementation of the software and to provide appropriate technical support to the board, as and when required,” said BM Gupta, head (Computer Centre), CBSE .
The board introduced the CCE scheme for classes IX and X from the academic session 2009-10. It was also introduced in all schools affiliated to the board. Under the scheme, a student has to engage and perform in various scholastic and co-scholastic areas for two years as per scheme of studies.
The scheme, introduced to come up with a holistic assessment of a learner, includes co-scholastic area of life skills, attitudes and values, sports and games, as well as co-curricular activities. One of the main highlights of CCE is that there are no Class X board examination from 2011 for students studying in CBSE’s senior secondary schools and those who do not wish to move out of the syllabus after Class X.
Experts say that CCE would help both the students and parents, who are the primary stakeholders of school education. The board, through CCE scheme, aims at reducing stress and anxiety level among school kids, which is widely found due to the constant pressure to perform.
