CharacteristicsSchool Based Evaluation
School Based Evaluation has the following characteristics:

- Aims primarily to help learners for systematic learning and development
- Takes care of the needs of the learner as responsible citizens of the future
- Is more transparent, futuristic and provides more scope for association among learners, teachers and parents
School based evaluation provides opportunities to teachers to know the following about their learners:
- What they learn?
- How they learn?
- What type of difficulties / limitations they face in working in tandem?
- What do the children think?
- What do the children feel?
- What are their interests and dispositions?
- The focus has shifted to developing a deep learning environment. There is a paradigm shift in the pedagogy and competencies from ‘controlling’ to ‘enriching’ to ‘empowering’ schools.
