The major assumption of CCE is that every child can improve. With the broader aim of examination reforms in mind, the scheme of continuous and comprehensive evaluation envisages that every learner is to be evaluated over the entire period of learning schedule rather than one three hour external examination at the end of a course of learning. CCE emphasis on the all-round development of every child and that can be achieved by active participation in different activities which in turn helps to derive self belief in the learners. The evaluation process is school based. In this new scheme, the role of formative evaluation is of almost importance. CCE aims at making children capable of becoming responsible, productive and useful member of a society. Introduction of continuous and comprehensive evaluation (CCE) is one of such reforms in entire education that can make education more meaningful for the learners. This article examines the concept of continuous and comprehensive evaluation, its historical perspectives, its need and importance, its features and role of teacher in implementing CCE in the modern education system.
