Schools gear up for new assessment system-TOI, 9th Nov, 2013

Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) have introduced Open Text-Based Assessment (OTBA) to all schools under its purview. Students of class IX and XI will have a 10-mark section based on OTBA in their annual exams. The purpose of introducing the system is to assess 'higher order thinking skills'. Unlike the open book exams in IITs, students will not be allowed to carry the study material to the examination centre.
