Assessment and Evaluation Practices for Board Exam 2023

Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) releases a new notification regarding Assessment and Evaluation Practices for Board Exam 2023. We discuss all important details about the Assessment and Evaluation Practices of the Board for the Session 2022-23. Read the article till the end for complete details about this new cbse circular.

The National Education Policy 2020 has reaffirmed the need to move from rote learning to competency-based education. It will equip the learners with critical competencies to proactively face the challenges of the 21st century. Accordingly, the Board has taken several steps toward implementing Competency-Based Education (CBE) in schools. These include aligning assessment with CBE, developing exemplary resources for teachers and students on CBE pedagogy and assessment, and continuing teacher capacity building.

In this context, the Board has released Circular No. Acad-05/2019 dated 18 January 2019; Circular No. Acad-11/2019 dated 06 March 2019; Circular No. Acad-18/2020 dated 16 March 2020; Circular No. Acad-32/2020 dated 14 May 2020 and Circular No. Acad-31/2020 dated 22 April 2021.

Continuing with these circulars, the Board is taking further initiatives to align the assessment for competency-based education in the examination and evaluation practices for the years 2022-23. Hence, more aptitude-based questions or questions which assess the application of concepts in real life/ unfamiliar situations will be part of the question paper in the upcoming sessions.
