The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) is preparing to start the open book exam system for classes 9th to 12th from this year. In view of the recommendations of the National Curriculum Framework brought to implement the new education policy, CBSE has proposed to conduct open book examination on an experimental basis in the month of November for the students of class 9th, 10th, 11th and 12th. It is being told that in some schools, the board has proposed to conduct open book test for English, Mathematics and Science subjects for class 9th and 10th and for English, Mathematics and Biology subjects for class 11th and 12th. CBSE will see how much time is taken by the students to complete the paper in the open book exam. Let us tell you that in open book exam, students are allowed to take books, notes, reference material with them to the exam. They can open the books and notes in the exam hall and take the exam with their help. During the Corona epidemic, Delhi University had given students the opportunity to take the examination through Open Book Exam (OBE) mode.

However, the OBE system is not easier than the currently running closed book examinations. OBEs often prove more difficult. Actually, open-book test does not assess a student’s memory but his ability to understand, analyze and apply concepts towards a subject. It is not just writing the text written in the book on the answer sheet.

According to the report of Indian Express, it is proposed to organize OBE on a trial basis in November-December this year. Based on the experience gained from this, the Board will decide whether this form of assessment of students should be adopted in all its schools for classes 9 to 12 or not. During this trial, the focus will be on assessing the higher level thinking skills, application, analysis, critical and creative thinking and problem solving abilities of the children.

CBSE: The rule of 10th and 12th examination twice a year will not be implemented from this year, Education Minister told when will this new rule be implemented.

The board wants the design and development work of the OBE pilot project to be completed by the month of June. For this, it has also decided to consult Delhi University which had started the Open Book Test during the Covid pandemic.
