CBSE Proficiency Test
The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) conducts optional proficiency test in April for students of Class X. The main objectives of the test are to standardize skills as well as superior intellectual abilities of students, to offer guidance and motivation for students to achieve academic brilliance in individual subjects, to furnish feedback to schools about learning stages of their students and set priorities, targets as well as goals for upcoming academic endeavors.
Open Text Based Assessment (OTBA)
CBSE will conduct OTBA for students of Classes IX and XI which will be included in the final examinations to be held in March, 2014. Relevant text material will be provided to the students during the tests. Students will be granted 30 minutes extra to answer the OTBA questions. For Class XI, OTBA will cover subjects of Economics, Geography and Biology only. There will be concept-based questions. The main purpose of OTBA is to move students away from the habit of learning by heart. This will encourage students to acquire various skills of comprehension, analysis, information processing and inference.
