In Kendriya Vidyalaya, exam results to be final when student says so
According to the officials, the system called Learner Director Evaluation System (LDES) is “based on the concept of video games, where the player can play till he wins or is satisfied with his performance.”
The officials also informed that LDES has been specifically framed in line with the Central Board of Secondary Education’s (CBSE) Continuous and Comprehensive Evaluation (CCE) system.
“While CCE primarily aims at evaluating students on the basis of practical assessments, the two summative assessments are still being made with the conventional paper-pencil pattern. Our idea of launching LDES is to make learning fun and to provide students with the ability to test their level,” said KVS Assistant Commissioner M S Chauhan.
“With the option of reappearing in the tests, the tendency to cheat in the examinations is likely to go down since they will now know that they will get the opportunity to revisit tests,” said another KVS official.
LDES will carry question banks for all subjects and the students will be provided with the results immediately after the test.
In the first phase, the project will be launched in all the Kendriya Vidyalayas (KV) in the northern region for students of Class I to VIII. The pilot testing project will be launched for evaluation in mathematics in April,
