The Department of Educational Measurement and Evaluation (DEME) of the National Council of Educational Research and Training (NCERT), New Delhi, India prepared a scheme of assessment for primary classes based on the concept of continuous and comprehensive evaluation. This scheme was finalized by an expert group before actual tryout. Primary teachers teaching in experimenting schools were oriented thoroughly regarding various aspects of the scheme before its implementation. Necessary modifications in various instructional aspects were added along with a monitoring mechanism. Subsequently the scheme was tried on students studying in primary classes of four schools for one full academic session. Implementation of the scheme revealed that it is feasible in primary schools. Teachers, students and their parents have found the scheme very useful and practicable for assessment of children's all-round development.
