Central Board of secondary education has implemented CCE grading system in the year 2009 due to this the work load of teachers and principals has increased a lot. It has become night mare for the people who are involved in the progress report card generation process.
In CCE the whole academic year is split into 2 0r 3 terms and under every term they will conduct evaluations like formative evaluation and summative evaluation. Formative evalauation is an combination of written exams and obervations like reading skils, analyticals skills etc. All evaluations will have different weight-age and marks which are to be converted into grades as per scales provided by CBSE. It involves lot of efforts in calculating the grades and taking final weight-ages due which the schools started searching for an user freindly CCE management software to manage their examinations.
MyClassboard is an one among those companies who provide software services to schools. It is an complete online school management software which means “no software, no hardware, no head aces”. School can use the services just by paying a small subscription fee yearly. Apart from all other moduels MyClassboard also provides a user friendly CCE management software called as “MyGradebook”. With the implementation of MyClassboard’s MyGradebook software the school can avoid the following flaws,
- Errors during marks to grade conversion process
- delay in report card issue to parents
- In accuracy in reports submission to CBSE board
- teachers require lot of writing work
The entire scholastic and non scholastic assessment of students is taken online through the CCE module and integrated with all the other activities of the student so as to draw meaningful reports and help educate each child better.
Summative assessment module:
Summative Assessments are given periodically to determine at a particular point in time what students know and do not know. Summative assessment is a measure that is generally used as part of the grading process. The key is to think of summative assessment as a means to gauge, at a particular point in time, student learning relative to content standards.
MyClassboard’s Summative Assessment in the CCE module allows schools to easily update or revise the curriculum and syllabus prescribed by the CBSE Board. The whole module is tied to the CCE concept of continuous evaluation and gives parents and teachers real time, on-demand information regarding the progress of students. The software automatically updates the CCE Summative assessment results in the students’ report cards according to the weightage prescribed by the board and is available while promoting students and evaluating their performance
Formative assessment module
Formative assessment is like a follow up to the summative. It is part of the instructional process. When incorporated into classroom practice, it provides the information needed to adjust teaching and learning while they are happening.
CCE allows teachers to continuously evaluate the performance of students and MyClassboard’s powerful software enables teachers to easily assess, grade and intervene to improve the student’s performance. All these data points are used while generating CCE report cards, in compliance with CBSE regulations. The report cards can be easily generated and shared, thus improving identification of students who underperform and need help.
The key is to learn more about individual students as they engage in the learning process so that a teacher can adjust instruction to ensure that all students continue to achieve by moving forward in their learning.
Easy Grading according to CCE regulations.
All the parameters used to grade the performance of students, as laid out in the Performance Indicators in the Teachers’ Manual of CCE issued by CBSE are mentioned in MyClassboard’s CCE Grading module. The prescribed Grade scale from A1 to E2 is incorporated into the tool and tied to the marks awarded by teachers to students in exams and other assessments. The system is entirely automated and gives students a clear understanding of their percentile rank and the appropriate grade they have secured.
Individual student profile
The progress of each student is maintained in the CCE module and helps teachers track the progress of the students and align them to the goal of the students. It presents a complete snapshot of each student, showcasing the student’s performance in academic as well as extracurricular areas. The profile is also updated with the goals, passions and achievements of each student, which enables the class teacher and other subsequent teacher’s to understand the student better. Teachers can also record specific incidents which they feel necessary.
CCE report card generator
CBSE has released new guidelines for evaluation of secondary classes popularly known as CCE (Continuous and Comprehensive Evaluation). MyClassboard generates CCE report cards as per the prescribed CBSE format and a custom report card for each school can also be created. The Grades report cards are based upon the Formative and Summative Assessments as prescribed by the CBSE covering all academic and extracurricular activities of the students.
Report cards Remarks
is a special feature from MyClassboard which is a list of remarks especially created for report cards –positive, negative and neutral. These are not mere remarks but insightful observations which would help the student and teacher to reflect upon and see how to work for betterment. The choice of remarks covers all the subjects, co and extracurricular activities, behaviour, arts, music, creativity etc. All that the teacher needs to do is to pick the appropriate phrase and fill in the corresponding column in the report card template. This will save her from pondering and pouring over all the thoughts that suit the student’s performance. Brainstorm
