New Evaluation Pattern

English (Compulsory)

Std-X (Third Language)

                Every student is unique and special. Students have divergent ways of thinking. They are curious to know about all things going around. They are moving into the 21st century with all types of exposure to social media. They learn by doing things practically. So teachers have taken a back seat and aimed to develop their creativity and critical thinking. If we have to change our future citizens, we have to change their way of thinking. And this is only possible by helping them to learn, rather than teaching them.
                Even while evaluation, if the question paper is based on different activities, students can solve it without any stress and tension. It will get rid of their fear of examination and develop their confidence. Through this new evaluation pattern, we are going to check their life skills needed for 21st century, like reasoning, creativity, imagination, inference and application. The new internal / oral and written evaluation pattern will check the skills and competencies, that they have achieved throughout the year. It is like a checklist to track the progress or performance of the students, which will also help them to check their linguistic abilities. It will monitor their linguistic learning competencies and skills, not just their knowledge. Eventually this will develop their intelligence, communication skills and personality.
The activities in the course book are based on constructivism where every student has scope to use his/her own knowledge of language. The concepts of the students are made clear, their linguistic skills are developed, they are geared up for public speaking. Their personality is enhanced with boosted confidence which in turn leads to fluency and accuracy in the long term/run. The new evaluation pattern also improves their interpersonal relationship along with communication skills and prepares them to compete globally.
