The Council for Indian School Certificate Examinations (CISCE) on Thursday asked schools affiliated with it to give their feedback regarding the status of their online teaching, completion of syllabus and assessment of students of Classes X and XII.
In a circular issued to the heads of all its affiliated schools, the CISCE today said that it has started the preparations for conducting the 2021 ICSE and ISC examinations.
The council will use the information provided by the schools for planning the two 2021 board examinations.
“ With the majority of the present academic session work being done, it is imperative for CISCE to have clarity on the work that has been completed by our affiliated schools. This is particularly important as we have started our preparation for the conduct of the Year 2021 Examinations. Therefore, once again, CISCE has designed a Questionnaire to be filled in by our Affiliated schools presenting candidates for the Year 2021 Examinations….Kindly treat this matter as urgent, as the data needs to be collated by the CISCE, analysed and suitable planning and preparation be done for the future…,” the circular sent to the schools read.
The CISCE on Thursday gave each school head a questionnaire.
The schools have been asked to fill in the questionnaires and sent them to the council online latest within November 11.
The CISCE had earlier sought feedback from its affiliated schools on July 31 on the extent of the syllabus they had covered till that time and the strategies and methods they had adopted for conducting the online classes.
The council had prepared two sets of questionnaires for the schools for seeking feedback at that time.
The council has affiliated schools in semi-urban and rural belts in Bengal as well as in other parts of the country.
Many schools located in such places had said they were finding it difficult to conduct the online classes due to several constraints, particularly poor internet connectivity.
