However holding of such workshop regularly is very much needed in order to update the examination reforms being taken up at the national level and also to impart capacity building among our educators. Last year in the first phase we have taken up 13 subjects from Arts, Science and Commerce streams and conducted the workshop from our own resources. This year we have included all main subjects a total of 36 subjects. The NCERT New Delhi has granted the financial assistance to meet the expenditures for the conduct of the 5-Day workshop including TA/DA of all participants
In the first Academic Session, Prof. A.D.Tiwari form NCERT have delivered his lecture minutely on the National Curriculum Framework such as the introduction of typology of questions which call for reasoning, critical thinking and problem solving abilities rather than memorization of facts. He also laid special emphasis on The quality of questions used in the evaluation of students because it is these questions which lead To the improvement in the thinking ability of the student. This will definitely enhance the quality of education. The workshop will continue till 16th September with a valedictory function at 3.00 p.m. on that day.
