Choice Based Credit System: Choice Based Credit System (CBCS) offers wide ranging choice for students to opt for courses based on their aptitude and their career goals. CBCS works on the fundamental premise that students are mature individuals, capable of making their own decisions.
CBCS enables a student to obtain a degree by accumulating required number of credits prescribed for that degree. The number of credits earned by the student reflects the knowledge or skills acquired him / her. Each course is assigned a fixed number of credits based on the contents to be learned & the expected effort of the student. The grade points earned for each course reflects the student’s proficiency in that course. CBCS is a process of evolution of educational reforms that would yield the result in subsequent years and after a few cycles of its implementation.
Salient features of the grading system:
- Learners are placed in ability bands that represent a range of scores. These ability bands may vary according to the number of categories for the classification of performance of the learners. This ability range may be designated with alphabetical of the letters called as GRADE.
- The system of awarding grades would provide a more realistic picture of learner’s ability than the prevailing marking system.
- Grading is a far more satisfactory method than the unerical marking system as it reflects an individual learner’s performance in the form of a certain level of achievement.
- The Grading system ensures natural classification in qualitative terms rather than quantitative terms since it expresses a range / band of scores to which a learner belongs such as O,A,B,C,D,E & F.
- The award of grades provides a permanent record of the learner’s growth and development that might be helpful for institutions of higher education for allocating seats for prospective employers.
- Grading does not require making fine distinctions in performance when no such distinctions actully exist.
- It is based on realistic concept of ‘errors of measurement’.
- Grade are relatively free from extraneous factors like difficulty of the examination, examiner bias, nature of the subject being examined, etc.
