Performance - Measurement & Evaluation
Evaluation is the most important part of studies, infact a performance measurement scale and a crucial phase in examination. It helps students to develop the habit of regular, systematic and methodical work. It is an area of great importance for students, parents and teachers, and enables to check if a given programme is working successfully. It is an incentive to hard work and has its diagnostic value both for the teacher and the taught.
To overcome the phobia of examination and to encourage a student to appear in examination confidently, CCE System of Continuous and Comprehensive Evaluation as recommended by CBSE has been adopted in all classes upto Class X. The purpose is to determine and assess the effectiveness of teaching learning processes, motivate and develop the capacity of abstract thinking and attain desired objectives in scholastic and co-scholastic areas.
