| Along with the completion of each stage of the projects,
seminar etc. which are considered for continuous evaluation their evaluation
and recording also have to be completed simultaneously. Different items
progress, obviously at their own pace. Using-the indicators already
given, recording on the prescribed formats should be done. Do not limit
the evaluation of each stage on merely giving the scores alone. The
teachers intervention should be helpful for the successful conduct of
the next stage (Remember - How pupils learn?)
How to record grades?
See how a teacher of chemistry recorded it.
There is variation between the recording in SEP of
Term I and Term II. There may be difference recorded after annual exams
too. Will this not lead to doubts on the part of parents? These are
doubts raised by a teacher
This is an enquiry as to how credibility of evaluation
can be established. Let's examine how far it is true. The teacher had
assigned one project and a class test in one subject in I Term.
The pupil scored 15/20 for project, and 18/20 for class test. Total score
for Term I = 33/40
Out of 10 = 8 (in SEP).
The same pupil scored 16 for seminar, 14 for assignments; 10 for records
and 15 for class Test. Total score =55/80 ie out of 10=55/80 = 6.7= =
But finally what will be her scores?
Average for Class Test--17
out of 10
This is natural. It is right too. Please convince
the parents at the class PTA. In the beginning the school year scores
were given out of 20 for each item. The latest order instructs to calculate
it out of 10. For convenience give score out of 20 and convert them
as out of 10.
Should we share the results of evaluation in the class?
The results of continuous evaluation are shared in
the class room. Discussions on the evaluating indicators, need for improving
their general standards, how to improve them, what activities to be
done in classroom etc. have to be discussed in the class. Pupils should
be guided to improved learning . Encourage them and more attention should
be given to those who require it. This sharing of ideas should help
each learners to understand her strengths and weaknesses in each item.
We should follow in approach to improve their self confidence. Give
sufficient Explanations along with SEP.
Publication of Evaluation Results - what is to be published?
Scores of continuous evaluate- programmes should be
recorded in the relevant formats before 15 January 2005. This should
be published on the school notice board after the approval of school
Exam Board. Continuous Evaluation Results are to be published on 31
How to publish the evaluation results?
The teacher for each subjects should show the pupil
the record of the progress of the individual after entering scores an
each items for evaluation and the total score. Copy of consolidated
score sheet of the learners as per the continuous Evaluation should
be published on the school/class notice-board. It should be attested
by the Headmaster. This should be informed to pupils and parents with
Format for the publication of results:
How to redress complains?
Department of General Education has issued clear instructions to resolve
problems/ address complaints if any in the-matter of continuous evaluation.
Complaints in the prescribed format may be submitted to the HM of
the school after the publication of continuous evaluation results.
Pupils are authorized in submit complaints with the approval of parents

Maintaining Records (Portfolio)
Portfolio means the records which are to be maintained as the part of
Subjects wise portfolio should include the above
records. Need not compel the pupils to spend money in spiral binding/comb
binding / bond paper etc. They should be hand-written except for IT.
Each item of the portfolio should be assessed and signed by the teacher
Report on the assessment and completion of portfolio should be presented
before the HM, if required.
Before publication of the results of evaluation the items in portfolio
may be distributed to parents for verification, if demanded. It may
be exhibited in the classroom.
During the publication of results, the portfolios should be kept in
schools till the completion of verification by the appeal committee.
The Role of the teacher in the evaluation process
Preparation for the effective executions of evaluation
Preparation of daily planning notes (Teaching Manual) and helping
pupils in their activities.
While pupils are engaged in doing projects/seminars/ assignment,
conduct interim evaluation and provide necessary help on the basis of
Consider projects/seminar etc. as learning activities and approach
them also as evaluation tools.
Prepare and use formats to record continuous evaluation results in
Identify the stages at which the progress is to be evaluated. Understand
the implication of the indicators in order to evaluate it.
Share with the learners weakness and strength found out. Conduct
feed back sessions and make your own contribution for improvement.
Make use of the service of the support mechanism fully, provided
by the Department of Education.
Present the features of new approach to curriculum and evaluation,
practical experiences and their effects in the learning process before
the class P.T.A. Also arrange exhibitions on the learning activities.

by Department, SCERT, various guidelines and orders in this line and
