Monday, February 3, 2020 / 4 Comments

Monitoring of Higher Secondary CE Scores

Monitoring is an activity which should be done continuously like evaluation of scholastic activities. There are different levels in the academic monitoring. It is the responsibility of the Principal and school subject councils to monitor the classroom regularly. Apart from these facilities in school, academic monitoring should be done. Scrutinizing the works or activities done by the students as part of their studies or auditing the scores obtained by them in continuous evaluation process is not the aim and mode of monitoring. Moreover, it is not examining the activities undertaken by the teachers. Monitoring is conceived to be a part of teacher empowerment programme.
The General Perspectives on Monitoring
• Monitoring is an academic activity.
• It aims at strengthening the class room interaction/transaction.
• Monitoring should be seen as a part of teacher empowerment programme.
• Monitoring is feasible by becoming a partner in the process of strengthening the knowledge of the students.
• Monitoring in each subject can be administered successfully by the teachers teaching the subject concerned.
• The monitoring team is decided by the clusters concerned.
• Monitoring team teachers should contact the teachers of the school to be visited early and the activity to be done in the classroom should be planned.
• The academic activity that would enable the continuous evaluation process to be carried out perfectly has to be selected for team teaching.
• The monitoring team ought to evaluate the academic activities and works related to it as part of class room interaction.
• The strengths and frailties of the learners should be deduced by the team from their direct class room experience.
• If there is any notable difference between the continuous evaluation score given to the student and the academic standard of the student identified by the teacher of the visiting monitoring team, such matters have to be forwarded for further discussions in general in the forthcoming clusters.

General Instructions for CE monitoring

• The principal concerned should issue the duty certificate(2 copies) to the teachers of the monitoring team.
• The periods have to be arranged according to the visiting time of the monitoring team by the principal so that it is convenient for the monitoring process to be done.
• For the subjects taught in a few schools only (rare subjects), the monitoring team should be formed as per the availability of the teachers for visiting in the same district or other districts. (rare subjects visitors are allowed to visit one school per day)
• This year, team teaching is allowed for anyone of the batches only for a subject in a school. (First year classes only)
