Teachers told to get familiar with evaluation programme

Teachers told to get familiar with evaluation programme

The Central Board of Secondary Education has asked affiliated school teachers to familiarise themselves with the Continuous and Comprehensive Evaluation (CCE) programme guidelines and sought regular interaction between school heads and teachers to remove prevailing notions.

It has been decided to establish a call centre, says CBSE  chairman Vineet Joshi.  DH PHOTOCBSE in a new year circular told all affiliated schools heads to continuously interact with teachers to remove the established notion that the reformative measure is over-burdening them.

"It is requested that school heads continuously interact with the teachers and discuss about changed role of teachers in view of the implementation of CCE. The established notion that teachers have to do everything in terms of asking questions and answering them before students can think, needs to be reviewed," CBSE said in its circular. Teachers should appreciate their role as collaborator and facilitator rather than instructor, the circular added.

CCE was launched a couple of years back in classes to decrease the accumulated stress of board exams on the students and to introduce a more uniform and comprehensive pattern in education.

24-hour call centre

CBSE has decided to set up a round-the-clock call centre to facilitate two-way interaction between students, parents and the board. “In view of demand received from the stakeholders about frequent communication with the board, it has been decided to establish a call centre,” CBSE chairman Vineet Joshi said.

The dedicated call centre is expected to be operational from February 15. The call centre will enable students and parents to access information pertaining to syllabi, exams, fee structure, results etc., and can even lodge complaints, sources said. The helpline number will be announced soon. During examination season, CBSE opens a 24-hour call centre to help students and parents.
