Amaravati has stated that a State Level Workshop was organized on 29.05.2017 at Vijayawada on the implementation of the Continuation and Comprehensive Evaluation pattern and other examination reforms and the related G.Os issued by the Government from time to time. In all about 170 participated in the workshop, including Hon’ble Teacher M.L.Cs, representatives of Teachers Unions, Professors of NCERT, representatives of other State S.C.E.R.Ts (i.e., Kerala, Karnataka, Tamil Nadu), Director, RMSA, SPD SSA, RJDSEs, DEOs, Principals of DIETs, Principals of CTEs & IASEs, Dy.E.Os, MEOs, HMs, Teachers, Managements of Private Schools, Citizens and NGOs. The Workshop highlighted many issues and challenges being faced in implementing CCE pattern of evaluation and recent G.Os issued for the betterment of Assessment and Evaluation. Three of the key recommendations of the Workshop were to conduct only 2 Summative Assessments (as being done in Telangana, Karnataka and Kerala) instead of three (3), removing weightage for internal marks of classes VIII and IX in class X; and external evaluation of Summative Assessments. To implement these three recommendations of the Workshop, the Commissioner of School Education, A.P. Amaravati has proposed certain amendments/additions to the related G.Os issued during the 2013, 2015 and 2016 and requested to bring out these amendments into effect from the current academic year i.e. 2017-18. Hence, she has requested to conduct 2 Summative Assessments instead of 3 Summative Assessments.

Amaravati and keeping in view of the recommendations of the workshop held on 29.05.2017, after careful examination of the matter, Government have decided to conduct two Summative Assessments instead of three Summative Assessments for classes VI to X and accordingly hereby order that wherever the term three (3) Summative Assessments are occurred in the G.Os 2nd and 4th read above, shall be read as two Summative Assessments.
