CBSE likely to launch 'Open Text' system from 2014
Oct 23, 2013

CBSE will launch Open Text Based Assessment (OTBA) system from March 2014 for class IX and XI under which students will be informed four months in advance about the study material on which the examinations will be conducted. 

What will be the pattern of exam?

The question paper in each main subject will have a separate section (10 marks) for OTBA. The OTBA section will comprise text followed by two or three questions based on it. The questions will require students to apply concepts to situations given in the article, report, or case study and draw inferences or conclusions. The questions will be open-ended, extrapolative, inferential and will look at personal response justifying a point of view.

Students will not be allowed to take books inside the examination hall. CBSE will provide case studies related to the subjects four months prior to the examination. 

What will be the benefits of this new system?

This will strengthen students' analytical and theoretical skills by moving away from the trend of rote learning.
