1 What is cbsepracticalskills.com?
  cbsepracticalskills.com is an online testing service, developed by Edulabz International, a fast growing Online Educational Media Content Development Company. Our mission is to provide an online platform to the school going students to help them assess their academic progress regularly.
   
2 Why cbsepracticalskills.com?
  In order to understand and appreciate science, we need to get in touch with our inner scientists, and then only we might be able to bridge the divide between everyday knowledge and the apparently intimidating and elite apparatus of formal science. We need to find that deep link between the realism of everyday life and scientific practicals. As an important initiative to increase the emphasis on practicals in schools, the harbors of formal learning as well as to make assessment of practicals fair, uniform and reliable, the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) had introduced a new scheme of assessment for Class IX-X from the academic year 2005-06. We have in support of this laudable initiative of CBSE board has created this website www.cbsepracticalskills.com. This is an effort to ensure that all that is required by both teachers to enrich their practical classes and students to hone their practical skills is comprehensively present at one single place, at a single click.
   
3 What is the structure of the test modules?
 

A test module consists of the following:

  • 3 practical-wise tests, of 20 questions each.
  • 50 comprehensive tests, of 20 questions each.

Comprehensive tests cover all the practicals for both 9 and 10 classes. Practical-wise tests can be taken any number of times. Students have the flexibility to pause a test, come back later and finish it and submit it at their convenience. The work they complete will be available when they come back even after events like Internet disconnection, power failure etc. Once students have answered all questions, they will be asked to submit the test. The server will evaluate their answers and provide a report instantly. This report will consist of a graphical analysis of the responses, the correct answers, the explanation of answers, and a feedback on the student’s performance.
