NEW DELHI: The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) will conduct the next edition of the Central Teacher Eligibility Test (CTET) in December 2021 or January 2022.
This time the CTET December 2021 examination will completely be conducted in online mode only.
“Not only this will save huge paper wastage on account of printing of question papers and OMR sheets but also will motivate the futuristic teachers to become computer literate,” said CTET director.
According to the CTET director from this year, the question papers will be developed to assess less of factual knowledge and more of conceptual understanding, application, problem-solving, reasoning, and critical thinking. The focus will be on assessing candidates’ understanding of teaching the subject, their pedagogic content knowledge, their knowledge relevance of the subject in the school curriculum, and other dimensions of teaching the subject-such as pedagogic content knowledge that includes questions assessing planning of teaching-learning experiences, strategies for developing conceptual clarity, usage of teaching-learning aids, and assessment methodologies specific to the concept.
Online CTET examination compliant with strict Covid protocols would ensure not only safety but would facilitate a faster processing and declaration of results. The CBSE will set up facilitation centres in the districts where the candidates will be provided (free of cost) facility of attempting online mock tests. The detailed notification regarding schedule for submission of online application form for next examination of CTET and dates of examination will be issued soon by the CBSE.
