Acc. to the recent circular issued by the CBSE, the open book system will be implemented from March 2014 examinations for class 9 and class 11.
The open book system will be for 15-20% of the marks. The schools will be supplied with the text material in few months before the commencement of Summative Assessment – 2.
The text material will be in the form of article; a case study; a diagram; a concept/mind map; a picture or a cartoon; problem/situation; based on the concept taught to the students during second term.
Board will set the question paper, and the same material will be supplied to students at the time of examination along with answer books and question paper. The students need to find the answer using the material supplied and they don’t need to study that part at home.
For class 9 students, the system will apply to all the main subjects and for class 11, it will apply only to Economics, Biology and Geography. The study materials will be supplied to all the schools by December 2013.
