CISCE seeks online teaching feedback to help plan 2021 board exams – Times of India

KOLKATA: The Council for Indian School Certificate Examinations (CISCE) has sent a questionnaire to its affiliated schools in Kolkata asking them to list their progress in covering the syllabi via online classes and the difficulties they faced while conducting them and the assessments that went virtual in March. Based on the feedback from schools that must be submitted by November 11, the CISCE plans to frame questions for its board exams in 2021.

The questionnaire is an updated version of the two earlier ones that had been sent to schools last July. CISCE chief executive and secretary Gerry Arathoon has asked schools to respond to two questionnaires regarding the status of online teaching, coverage of the reduced syllabus and the assessment and evaluation done in schools.

“With the majority of the present academic session work having been done, it is imperative for the Council to have clarity on the same. This is particularly important as we have started preparing for the 2021 board examinations. Therefore, once again, the CISCE has designed a questionnaire to be filled in by the school heads who will be presenting candidates in the ICSE and ISC examinations,” wrote Arathoon.

Among the questions asked is by when would the theory syllabus be completed.

School principals have been asked if assessments or examinations had been conducted to test the portions of the syllabus covered and how they were done by the institutes. Finally, principals also have to write their own comments about imparting theory classes, practical classes, online mode of teaching and the syllabus that has been covered by the schools.

“The Council is devising several plans that can be put in place as the pandemic situation evolves. They need to understand and keep strategies ready for various scenarios which may come up next year. According to the situation, these plans will be executed,” principal of Julien Day School, Ganganagar, Bobby Baxter said.

“The Council has sought the replies to have a better understanding of the teaching-learning method followed by schools in various regions of the country,” he added.
