Ranchi: State-run middle schools in Jharkhand would soon do away with the decade old examination pattern.
A continuous and comprehensive evaluation (CCE) system, an examination module adopted by the Central Board of Secondary Examination (CBSE), would now be in place to assess the performance of the students.
Under the new system, students would not require preparing for the burdensome annual or half-yearly examinations, but they would be asked for weekly projects and oral tests.
The Human Resource Development Department has decided to introduce the new assessment system in all 40,000 schools across the State from the next academic session.
For the purpose, it has mooted training schedule for about 1200 teachers, who in turn will act as mentors to disseminate nitty-gritty of the new evaluation system to over 1.35 lakh teachers within a specified time frame.
To begin with, the CCE system will be implemented for students from class VI to VIIII. HRD Secretary Mridula Sinha said the department intended to impart training to all the teachers by August 15, following which CCE system would be strictly enforced in all the schools.
The department has also decided to train 30 teachers from Ranchi, Ramgarh, Khunti, Simdega and Lohardaga districts on a pilot basis within a fortnight.
Sinha said after the three days training, the teachers would be asked to run a trial of CCE in their respective schools and submit the report of the progress.
