CBSE Circular: Assessment and Evaluation Practices of Session 2022-23

Competency-Based Questions are the main focus of the CBSE circular. CBE (Competency Based Education) was previously used by CBSE two to three years prior. This activity will undoubtedly assist the system as a whole in overcoming rote learning.


The necessity to switch from memorization to intellect learning has been confirmed by the National Education Policy. As a result, the Board has taken numerous actions to introduce Competency-Based Education (CBE) into schools. These include things like providing resources that serve as models for teachers and students on CBE pedagogy and assessment as well as ongoing teacher capacity building. In order to link assessment with competency-based education, the Board is starting additional, equivalent adjustments in the examination and assessment methods for the years 2022–2023.

Hence we can expect more focus would be given to Competency-Based Questions or questions that assess the application of concepts in real-life in the question paper.
