Working forward on its motto ‘assessment as learning’, the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) has decided to prepare a question bank for classes 9 to 11. The question bank will include previous years papers and will be available on an IT platform which will be very user-friendly. The question bank will be available not only for students but also for the teachers.
To help CBSE create question bank, the board the asked its affiliate schools to submit the question papers which schools prepare for the term end exams for classes 9 to 11.
"The Questions may be sent for all academic subjects (English, Hindi, Science, Social Science and Mathematics for classes IX and X and; Physics, Chemistry, Biology, Mathematics, English Core and Elective, Hindi Core and Elective, Accountancy, Business Studies, Economics, History, Political Science, Geography, Psychology, Sociology, Physical Education and Computer Science for classes XI and XII) and skill (vocational) subjects for classes IX to XII for as many past years as available with school/group of schools."
The schools are also required to submit the marking scheme along with the question papers.
Apart from this, CBSE has also asked the schools to submit answer copies of the toppers which can be used by other students as exemplary answers.
