700+ teachers trained in the first workshop titled ‘The art and science of MCQ creation’, more to follow
11 Oct, 2021, New Delhi: In view of the revised MCQs evaluation methodology introduced by CBSE board under the New Education Policy (NEP) 2020, Career Launcher, the Edtech business engine and a wholly-owned subsidiary of CL Educate (NSE, BSE: CLEDUCATE) announced conducting teacher training workshops much ahead of the board exams 2022 to help teachers sync in the new process and patterns earlier in the academic year. Multiple Choice Questions is a modern yet time-tested way of evaluating student learning. It keeps Bloom’s taxonomy at the centre yet allows the examiner to test 21st century skills such as problem solving, decision making, and creativity. 700+ teachers have already been trained in their first workshop titled ‘The art and science of MCQ creation’ conducted at Sankalp Sahodaya.
Speaking on the occasion, Shiva Kumar, Director of Academics, Career Launcher said, “We have designed these in-depth and exhaustive workshops with break-out sessions for each of the key subjects to be demonstrated by our senior level academicians and stalwarts in the education field. These intensive workshops will help teacher to become thorough with the new pattern and process directed under the new NEP 2020 exam pattern. Post Covid changes in education processes and most importantly exams will be a key area that teachers and education leaders need to understand and comprehend. Our first workshop which trained 700+ teachers is the beginning and we aim to conduct a series of similar workshops in future.”
Sudha Acharya, President, Sahodaya CBSE Complex said, “Our teachers are delighted with their take-away from this intensive workshop, as CBSE schools adapt to the MCQ world, in keeping with the New Education Policy. We look forward to more such workshops in the future.”
