Formative Assessments:
1. Marks for different activities under formative
assessment are compiled.
2. For each formative assessment marks are given
out of 10.
3. Each Formative Assessment as 10% is then
added to the result sheet.
Summative Assessments:
1. Paper pen test is conducted.
2. Each Summative Assessment as 30% is then
carried to the result sheet.
Overall Result:
1. Marks of all the four FAs and two SAs are added
to make the result sheet.
2. Up scaling is done on the basis of co-scholastic
marks as per CBSE rules.
 It is mandatory for all students of Class IX and Class XI to
appear in Problem Solving Assessment (PSA).The paper
comes from CBSE Board.
 There is no specific syllabus for ‘Problem Solving
 It assesses the Life Skills related to the following areas:
 Quantitative Reasoning
 Qualitative Reasoning
 Language Conventions
 The Problem Solving Assessment is counted
towards FA - 4 which is 10% of total assessments of
Class IX.
 This assessment is also carried forward towards the
FA - 4 in Class X.
 This score is reflected in one Language (English or
Hindi), Mathematics, Science and Social Science. The
same score is reflected in FA - 4 for class IX and
Class X.
 The students will have the option to improve
their PSA score in Class X, as they can sit for the
test with Class IX students.
 The best scores will be reflected in the final
certificate in case of those applying for
 The Life Skills are assessed within the following domains:
 Qualitative: which includes the reasoning seen in
Humanities, Arts and Social Sciences.
 Quantitative: which includes the kinds of reasoning
found in Mathematics and Science.
 Language Conventions: which includes different
aspects of written communication (e.g. grammar,
vocabulary etc.)
 The questions incorporate aspects such as Creative
Thinking, Decision Making, Critical Thinking, Problem
Solving and Communication.
 The questions in ‘Problem Solving Assessment’ are
designed in such a way so as to improve the generic and
higher order thinking skills. This also results in improving
scores within the core school subjects.

 It has to be a continuous process as a classroom activity.

 The best of two grades (scored in SA I and SA II) will be
reflected against ASL Column In the Final Report Card.
 The Central Board of Secondary Education recommends
that multiple modes of assessment need to be provided to
cater to the varied abilities of individual strengths of
 Therefore, an element of Open Text-based Assessment for
Classes IX and XI has been introduced in March, 2014
 These are meant to incorporate analytical and theoretical
skills, thus moving away from memorization.
 It is applicable to all the main subjects…..
 This is a part of Summative Assessment II.
 A textual material may be in the form of an article, a case
study, a diagram, a concept/ mind map, a picture or a
cartoon, problem/situation based on the concepts taught
to the students during second term.
 It is to the extent of 15-20 percent in all the main subjects
and also include the Value Based Questions.
 The textual material is related to chosen concepts taken
from the syllabi.
 The Open Text Based Assessment (OTBA) has questions of
higher order thinking skills and some of which are
subjective, creative and open ended.
 The textual material is supplied earlier and uploaded on
Assessment of Text Material / Case-Studies
Depending on the text material/ case study supplied to
students, the answers will be assessed on a set of
assessment rubrics showing the extent of which students
were able to do the following:

 The Board has amended its examination Bye-Laws to make
it mandatory for students to appear in both the Summative
Assessments and score a minimum of 25% marks in
aggregate i.e., (SA I + SA II) in these assessments w. e. f.
 The Board has also initiated Assessment of Speaking and
Listening Skills (ASL) and Open Text Based Assessments
(OTBA) from the academic session 2013-14 in class IX and
class XI to focus on communicative aspects of language
learning and problems based on higher order reasoning
 In the light of above initiatives, the Performance Profile for
class IX for this year is slightly changed.
The following points are highlighted in this regard:
1. There is no change in the criteria for working out the
overall result i.e., marks obtained in both the SAs will be
added and then converted into respective grades as per the
existing scheme.
2. The grades ‘[email protected]’ or ‘[email protected]’ will indicate that candidate has
obtained less than 25% mandatory marks in Summative
3. The grade scored in the Assessment of Speaking and
Listening Skills (ASL) in English will be a part of Summative
Assessments I and II (70+20) and will be reflected as an
aggregate grade in the Performance Profile.
4. As Open Text Based Assessment (OTBA) will be a part of
the Summative Assessment II question paper, there will be
no need for calculating grades in the subjects containing
OTBA separately.
5. The total marks of the question papers for the subjects
having OTBA (English, Hindi, Mathematics, Science and
Social Science) in the Summative Assessment II will be 100
and the timing will be 3-3½ hours.
 The overall marks obtained in these subjects will be
multiplied by 0.3 to make it 30% which is the weightage for
Summative Assessments II.
 For the subjects which do not have OTBA element, the
question paper will be of 90 marks and the process for
computing 30% weightage will remain the same as
followed in the previous year i.e., division by 3 to make it
6. The instructions regarding obtaining 25% mandatory marks
in the Summative Assessments (both the SA I and SA II
taken together), ASL, OTBA and skill based vocational
subjects under National Vocational Education Qualification
Framework (NVEQF) have been added in the Scheme of
7. If mandatory 25% marks have not been obtained in the
Summative Assessments in a subject, Grade E1 or E2 will
not be upgraded.
Co-Scholastic areas are assessed by:
 Planning Activities.
 Writing Anecdotal Records for each Student.
 Giving marks to specific indicators and
calculating the total marks.
 Total Marks are converted into grades.
 Compilation of indicators according to the

 Policy for upscaling of grades in scholastic areas
on the basis of total grade points obtained in
co-scholastic areas / activities:
I. Those Students who get total grade points in co-scholastic
areas/ activities in the range 53-65 may benefit by getting
upgraded to the next higher grade in two subjects in
scholastic areas.
II. Those students who get total grade points in the range
40-52, may benefit by getting upgraded to the next higher
grade in one subject in scholastic area.
iii. The up scaling of Grade in Scholastic Areas is applicable in
Main Subject only (i.e. excluding Additional 6th Subject).
iv. No Grade should be up scaled twice.
v. No up scaling is done if the Grade obtained in the subject
is E2 or A1.
vi. Up scaling is done from lowest grade to next higher grade
and so on.
(Example : E1 be up scaled to D, D to C2, C2 to C1, C1 to B2,
B2 to B1, B1 to A2 and A2 to A1)
vii. In case of tie in Grades in two or more subjects (i.e. if
Grades obtained are same), the up scaling be done in
following order :
 Higher marks obtained in the subject will be preferred.
 In case of tie in marks, higher marks obtained in
Summative Assessments. (SA1+SA2)
 In case of tie in Summative Assessments marks, higher
marks obtained in Formative Assessments.
viii. Benefit shall be given to the students who win I/II
positions/prizes in competitions held at state level
and/or participation in competitions held at
national / international level organised by a body
recognized by the state/central Government/CBSE.
ix. Any competition organised by such agencies related to
the co-scholastic areas/ activities included in the Board’s
CCE card may be considered for giving this benefit.
x. Those students who qualify under this provision will
benefit by getting their grade up-scaled to the next
higher grade in two subjects provided this benefit has
not been given to the student under the aforesaid grade
point scheme.
CCE is a system of education and examination that teaches
students, the requisite problem solving and analytical skills
required by the job market. Memorizing and regurgitating
textbooks is not a skill needed by the job market.
An exam system that encourages this type of ‘learning’ snuffs
out creativity. To teach skills and create excellence, is the
way - perhaps the only sustainable way – towards real equity.
