CONTINUOUS AND COMPREHENSIVE EVALUATION(CCE)
C – Continuous
C – Comprehensive
E – Evaluation
Continuous stands for assessment of a student throughout the year, not just at the end of a term. It may be done formally or in an informal way using different techniques of evaluation. Comprehensive takes care of assessment of all round
development of a child’s personality. A child will be assessed not only in terms of his knowledge about a subject but his participation in other activities also. Broadly, we assess a child’s growth in two areas – Scholastic and Co-scholastic.
The term Scholastic refers to those aspects, which are related to intellect or the brain. It is related to the assessment of learners in curricular subjects. It includes assignments, projects, practical etc.
In CCE, the marks obtained in an exam are usually not revealed. However, equivalent grades, which would be deduced using a special method by the teachers during evaluation, would be revealed.

Though this system might have some drawbacks it in stills this value that students need to compete with themselves to get a better grade and not with others. The grading system is as follows:-
