The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) is planning to experience innovative evaluation in school education by conducting open-book exams (OBE). According to the officials, the open book trial exams will be conducted in selected schools for classes 9 to 12 later this year. However, there is no plan to adapt this format in the class 10th and 12th board exams. The idea was floated in the last governing body meeting of the Board conducted in December 2023.  

'The CBSE is planning a pilot run of open-book assessments in selected

schools, targeting subjects — English, Mathematics, and Science for Classes 9 and 10, and English, Mathematics, and Biology for Classes 11 and 12. The aim is to gauge the time taken by students to complete these tests and gather feedback from stakeholders. The plan is in line with recommendations made in the National Curriculum Framework. These tests would undergo a pilot phase in schools to evaluate various aspects such as completion time, suitability for formative and summative assessment, and stakeholders' perceptions, ' said a senior board official reported by news agency PTI.
