The State Council for Educational Research and Training (SCERT) finalized the proposals on the changes in curriculum, assessment, evaluation and training of SSC that would be put in place from the next academic year 2014-2015 onwards. As they appear so, the radical reforms have more or less been a replica of CBSE curriculum and the modus operandi of assessment. There will be more focused periodic tests, slightly more syllabus, enhanced topics and of course, the CCE ( Comprehensive and Continuous Evaluation which has been implemented up to Class VIII since 2011.
The proposals were discussed in a workshop conducted by the SCERT. The proposals have to be ratified by the successive governments both in Telangana and Andhra Pradesh.
State government has been studying the proposals submitted by the State Council for Educational Research and Training (SCERT) on the reforms that have to be brought in SSC curriculum and examinations.
SCERT team led by its Director G. Gopal Reddy, has submitted the proposals to Principal Secretaries of Primary and Secondary Education Poonam Malakondaiah and Rajeswar Tiwary on 03.05.2014. The proposals are likely to be ratified sometime this week, according to official sources. Once they are okayed, implementation will be from next academic year 2014-2015 onwards i.e. from June onwards. Teachers will be given periodic training on the new changes and also on assessing the student’s multilateral performance. SCERT will also take up the responsibility of training the teachers.
SCERT has made some changes in its earlier report after speaking to some teachers unions and education experts. It has now proposed nine papers in the annual examinations instead of seven, which was suggested earlier.
There will be three single papers for three languages (First, Second and Third) each consisting of 80 marks. For the three group (non-language) subjects, there will be two papers each and each of them carries 40 marks. The remaining 20 marks will be awarded in internal assessment.
The grades are also slightly changed.
