ASSET stands for Assessment of Scholastic Skills through Educational Testing. A scientifically designed, skill-based assessment developed in India for Indian schools, after a detailed study of the syllabi of different central and state boards, this test has been introduced across all Pearson Schools. Unlike regular tests which try only to find out how much a child knows (or has memorised), ASSET measures how well a student has understood concepts. It focuses on measuring how well SKILLS and CONCEPTS underlying the school syllabus have been learnt by the student.
The CCE or Continuous and Comprehensive Evaluation scheme refers to a school-based evaluation of students that covers all the aspects of a student’s development. Continuous means regular assessments, frequency of unit testing, analysis of learning gaps, applying corrective measures, retesting and giving feedback to teachers and students for their self-evaluation, etc. Comprehensive on the other hand attempts to cover both the scholastic and the co-scholastic aspects of a student’s growth and development - with both these aspects of the evaluation process being assessed through Formative and Summative Assessments.
