CBSE to train teachers on scheme to reduce student stress

The scheme which seeks to reduce pressure on students and impart education free of any fear for proper student grooming was launched in the 2009-10 session in class IX. Parents form an integral part of this initiative.

The board has now firmed up plans to create the dedicated cadre who will play a crucial role in its proper implementation especially after the initial feedback from various stakeholders like principals, parents, teachers and students.

CBSE will also undertake teachers training once again "in all schools to reinforce the concept of summative assessment, using tools and techniques, assessing co-scholastic areas and recording and documentation," the board said in a fresh circular.
The board is also in the process of implementing the monitoring and mentoring framework in all schools whereby mentors will act as peer assessors and hand-hold other schools where required.

The CBSE, under the scheme, had recently issued instructions to all schools to minimise homework and tests in the school curriculum for classroom assessment of students.
It suggested that schools should motivate children to indulge in self-learning and make project works and assignments more interactive.
Maintaining that it is in continuous interaction with parents' community and has taken up concerns raised by them, CBSE has said the concerns should be brought to the notice of all teachers, parents and students of the school.

For any change and reform to be successful, every school, every teacher as well as the parents' bodies need to work together in a collaborative spirit to move forward successfully to make the CCE scheme as success, it said.
Meanwhile, HRD Minister Kapil Sibal said a centre for assessment and evaluation will come up within the CBSE by this year-end to evaluate curriculum and educational standards at schools.
