The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) is going to hire qualified and experienced individuals to join its team of peer assessors, who will be responsible for external assessment of the affiliated schools.
The board has introduced School Quality Assessment and Accreditation (SQAA), under which the schools affiliated with the board will be assessed through standardised instruments and processes of internal (self-evaluation) and external assessment (peer review), which will encourage sustained qualitative enhancement.
The CBSE's SQAA manual stipulates that the external assessment will be done by peer assessor team (PAT) whose approach would be non-threatening.
CBSE wants to hire the peer assessors, who will constitute principals (working or retired) or educators with vast experience and rich insight in school education processes.
In order to streamline the process of selection of peer assessors, to make it more transparent and to appoint a cadre of effective and competent peer assessors, who are well conversant with the rationale of CBSE SQAA and thus are able to ensure proper and effective carrying out SQAA process, the board proposes to conduct an online screening test which will consist of two sections. Section A will consist of MCQs based on the SQAA manual and Section B which will be based on the case study.
All those who are interested in becoming a CBSE certified peer assessor for School Quality Assessment and Accreditation should fill in the application form attached and send it at firstname.lastname@example.org.
