A two day CBSE workshop on CCE- Capacity Building was held on January 8 and 9, 2014, at The Indian Heights School, Sector-23, Dwarka. The workshop was convened by Ms. Pragya Sinha from NIIT Ltd. The main objective of this workshop was upgrading and upskilling the teachers. It aimed at preparaing the teachers to be visionaries, futuristic and holistic in their approach. It dealt with the ‘Formative’ and ‘Summative’ assessments. It also informed the teachers regarding the various supporting tools like CCE Manual, Teachers Manual, Trainer’s Manual, Life Skills Manual, etc. The aim of Continuous Comprehensive Evaluation was also communicated through its slogan “Know-As you grow”.
The first day of the workshop was devoted to Formative assessments where teachers were guided to assess the students periodically, to be objective, to give ample practice to the students, to diagnose their positive feedback. Group activities on different learning tools were carried out.
The second day was dedicated to Summative Assessment wherein the teachers were reacquainted with Bloom’s Taxonomy which lays stress on the art of asking questions. The importance of ‘High Order Thinking Questions’ were discussed. Teachers were required to assess S.A. question papers as a group activity, to ascertain the marks ratio as against Bloom’s Taxonomy. Teachers were required to design a question paper on the same pattern. The relativity between scholastic and co-scholastic areas was discussed.
The workshop was very informative and beneficial for all the teachers. It also gave the pre-primary and primary teachers an insight on how to approach teaching bearing in mind the requirement in the higher classes.
