Deciphering CBSE's new announcement - Uniform System of Assessment - 2

The CBSE affiliated schools at present follow several systems of assessment and examination for classes VI to IX and issue different types of report cards to their students. The CBSE will now issue the report card for class X based on the Board examination with effect from Academic Year 2017-18.The assessment structure and examination pattern for class IX will be similar to that of class X, the report card for class IX issued by the schools will also be similar to that of class X.

The examinations for classes VI-VIII has been planned on Term Assessment basis with gradual increase in the learning assessment as the students move forward. This would prepare the students to cover the entire syllabus of the academic year and face the challenge of class X Board examination, and would thus, ensure the ‘quality of education’.

  • For classes III – VIII, there will be periodic test in each term, 40 marks will be reduced to 10 marks in report card for final assessment.
  • Pattern of Assessment given by CBSE for classes VI – VIII will be implemented having two terms i. e 1st term and 2nd term. However, both the terms will be treated separately without including portion of 1st term in the 2nd term.
  • In classes VI – VIII, the students scoring E grade in half yearly examination can be given one opportunity to improve their performance in half yearly and yearly examinations separately.
  • All tests in classes IX and X will have cumulative content. There will be three periodic written tests, one being the midterm test and the other two being pre mid term and post midterm, with portion of syllabus cumulatively covered. In the entire academic year the average of the best two will be taken for final assessment.
