Binukumar Samson, Josu Solabarrieta

Abstract


Student evaluation is essential for understanding what students are learning, how they are progressing, and how they can improve their performance. Continuous and Comprehensive Evaluation (CCE) is aimed at making a comprehensive evaluation of students' progress. However, it could only create a mixed response among the stakeholders. Therefore, it is necessary to understand the underlying dynamics and characteristics of student evaluation practices in India. Propriety, utility, feasibility, and accuracy are the core attributes of any student evaluation practice according to The Student Evaluation Standards. These standards were projected in the context of CCE. This survey covered 442 secondary school teachers predominantly in private CBSE schools of Kerala, investigating their judgment on the evaluation of students on these four attributes with reference to CCE practices. Statistical data analysis indicated the necessity of modifying certain aspects of student evaluation practices in schools.
