What are the NEP 2020 Exams & Assessment Reforms

NEP 2020 aims to transform the nature of learning assessments from one that is summative and primarily tests rote memorization skills to one that is:

  • More regular and formative
  • More competency-based and
  • One that tests higher-order skills, such as analysis, critical thinking, and conceptual clarity

Change in the nature of the progress cards

The progress card will be a holistic, 360-degree, multidimensional report that reflects the progress as well as the uniqueness of each learner in the cognitive, affective, and psychomotor domains.
It will include self-assessment and peer assessment, and the progress of the child in project-based and inquiry-based learning, quizzes, role plays, group work, portfolios, etc., along with teacher assessment.
It will also be accompanied by parent-teacher meetings in order to actively involve parents in their children’s learning journey.

Change in the nature of board exams

Some of the key changes in the nature of board exams are:

  • Greater choice of subjects
  • Testing of core competencies rather than memory
  • Best-of-two attempts: one main examination and another for improvement
  • A possible semester or modular system to reduce pressure
  • Option to choose subject levels based on interest e.g standard vs higher level in math
  • Certain subjects’ question papers may be redesigned to have two parts-one part of MCQs and the other of a descriptive type

All students will take school examinations in Grades 3, 5, and 8 so that learning progress can be tracked throughout the school years rather than just at the end of class 10 and 12.
