CBSE Class 1st to 10th Update 2020 : CBSE Releases Guidelines For Compulsory Art-Education & Art-Integrated Learning

Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) has released guidelines for implementation of Art-integrated projects for class 1 to 10 students.

Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) has released guidelines for implementation of Art-integrated projects for class 1 to 10 students. These projects would be mandatory for class 9 and 10 students and optional for class 1-8 students. The projects have to be group projects and should integrate any form of Indian art - visual or performing.

As per the guidelines released by CBSE, all schools have to introduce art-integrated learning and ensure that students learn about the vast and diverse cultural heritage of our country.

For class 1 to 8, students should be encouraged to take at least one Art-Integrated Project (trans-disciplinary project) in a given academic year, says CBSE. The project work can include more than one subject and can also be considered for Internal Assessment in the subjects concerned.

For class 9 and 10, the art integrated project has to be taken in all the subjects and will be marked for internal assessment.

In at least one project, students across classes till grade 10 have to integrate any art form of the paired state/UT, as defined under 'Ek Bharat Shrestha Bharat' Programme. For example students in Delhi schools must take up a project that is based on the art form of Sikkim. The list of paired states and UTs is available on CBSE website.

The projects have to be taken up in an eco-friendly manner, using local resources without any financial burden to parents or guardians.

The topics for art-integrated projects should be a new topic that has not been taken up in classroom yet. Subject teachers and Art teachers are to give proper guidance to students about their projects.

The projects selected should be doable by students and subject teachers without the assistance of art teachers/artists or others. The assessment techniques should be relevant and age appropriate and will be communicated to students along with maximum marks before the commencement of work on the project.

'The marks awarded for these projects, as part of subject-enrichment activities of class X, will be collected by the Board at the time of uploading of marks of internal assessment,' says CBSE.

Art Integrated Learning (AIL) and Art-Education (AE)

Art-Integrated Learning aims to use art as a tool to teach other subjects. Subject teachers can use simple art forms to teach various topics. CBSE has also released a list of art activities which can be integrated with different subjects.

"The teachers and learners should not limit themselves in the rigid boundaries," says CBSE.

CBSE has also created a portal for schools to report on Art-Education and Art Integrated Learning (AIL). Required data regarding (i) implementation of Art- Education up to class X, (ii) Art-Integrated Project up to class X, and (iii) implementation of Art- Integrated Learning up to class XII, to download board exam admit cards for class 10 and class 12 students.

The National Council of Educational Research And Training, NCERT has recently released alternative academic calendar for classes 1 to 12 to enable students to learn quality and standardised curriculum from home. In the initial state, the calendar is prepared for four weeks and can be extended further, depending upon the situation.

Activities related to art education and health and physical education and learning resources along with textbooks are also included in the same.

The calendar contains week-wise plan consisting of interesting and challenging activities, with reference to theme/ chapter taken from syllabus or textbook. Most importantly, it maps the themes with the learning outcomes.The purpose of mapping of themes with learning outcomes is to facilitate teachers/parents to assess the progress in the learning of children and also to go beyond textbooks.

CBSE Exam Update 2020-21 : New Assessment Pattern : 20% Objective Type Questions

From next academic year, CBSE will be adopting a new pattern for examination assessment for classes 9 to 12.

From next academic year, Central Board of Secondary Education or CBSE, the national level board which regulates school education in the country, will be adopting a new pattern for examination assessment for classes 9 to 12. A significant change, according to a circular released by the Board in March-mid this year, will be a 20 per cent of questions in theory papers of objective type questions including multiple choice questions (MCQs). Same as, there will be 20 per cent and 10 per cent Case-based or Source-based integrated questions for classes 9-10 and 11-12 respectively from next year.

Remaining questions in all these annual examinations will be of short answer and long answer format.

Case-based or Source-based integrated questions were introduced in 2019-2020 year for classes 9 and 10, but the percentage share of this section was not introduced then.

Again, currently, the Board exams carry objective type questions, but the percentage or number of questions has not been prescribed.

According to a CBSE circular, the Board is initiating these changes in the examination and assessment practices for the year 2020-21 onwards as a follow up of adopting Learning Outcomes developed by NCERT and also part of Capacity Building Programmes for the year 2020.

The theme of the Capacity Building Programmes for the year 2020 is Competency Based Education. 

"Competency Based Education (CBE) is an outcome based approach to schooling, where attainment of goals takes priority. Learning Outcomes (LOs) are defined in terms of competencies and capacities, which students acquire and demonstrate at the end of instructional programme," the Board said in the circular. 

"In CBE, explicitly defined learning outcomes guide instruction; instruction is more flexible, learner centric, learner-led and provides multiple opportunities for learning; and assessment is authentic and examines if the students are able to apply required concepts in real life situations," it added. 

"The overall marks and duration of examination shall remain same, change in the composition of assessment tasks would help us achieve the desired ends," it said.
