 All Regional Joint Directors of School Education and District Educational Ofcers in the  state are aware that the  academic calendar has been released, and the  frst formative assessment 1/ CBA1 is scheduled to take place from August 1, 2023. In this connection, the  following test design structure has been fnalized by the  State Assessment Cell (SAC).

 Test Design Structure for FA1/CBA1:

        The test items will be designed based on the  textbooks adopted by the  Andhra Pradesh State Council of Educational Research and Training (AP SCERT).

•   The assessment tools will be designed to assess grade-specific skills.

•   The assessment tool will include both Multiple-Choice Questions

(MCQs) and Free-Response Questions (FRs).

•        For Grade 3 to 8, each MCQ will have 4 options, and there will be only one correct answer for each question. For Grade 1 and 2, MCQs will have 3 options, and there will be only one correct answer for each question.

•   For the  formative assessment, the  number of MCQs has been set at

10. This allows for testing essential concepts while giving students sufficient time to answer the  questions. It also takes into account the limited number of chapters being tested in each formative assessment.

 This blueprint aims to ensure that the  assessment aligns with the curriculum, focuses on grade-specific skills, and provides a balanced

 The difficulty level of the  assessment tools for the  formative assessment/CBA1 will be maintained at an average of 50-55%. This ensures that the  questions are challenging enough to assess the  students' understanding and application of the  concepts without being overly difcult.

 The questions used in the  assessments are categorized based on the cognitive abilities they require for solving them. These categories are Mechanical (M), Understanding (U), and Application (A).

 Mechanical (M) questions typically assess basic knowledge and recall of facts. These questions may involve straightforward information retrieval or simple calculations.

 Understanding (U) questions assess the  students' comprehension and interpretation of concepts. They require students to explain, describe, or summarize information, demonstrate understanding of relationships, or make connections between different ideas.

 Application (A) questions assess the  students' ability to apply their knowledge and skills to solve real-world problems or perform tasks. These questions require students to analyse situations, make judgments, apply principles or rules, or solve complex problems using their acquired knowledge and understanding

 It also brings to the  attention of the  RJDSEs and DEOs that it has been decided to conduct the  TOEFL test for students of classes 3 to 9 who are studying in government schools, in order to assess their abilities in the English language. Therefore, the  English question paper for classes 3 to 9 has been designed with PART A (curriculum-based) and PART B (TOEFL- based). PART B is exclusively for  government school students.

 Regarding the  expenditure for printing and supplying question papers for the  formative assessment 1/ CBA1 in Government management schools, the  State Project Directors is requested to release the  estimated budget with the  approved revised rates to the  concerned DCEBs' accounts from the  funds available at Samagra Shiksha AP.

Therefore, all district educational officers are kindly requested to ensure that the  formative assessment 1/ CBA1 is conducted with the utmost care and strict adherence to the  guidelines.

 All the  regional joint directors of school education and district educational officers are also requested to submit the  analysis of the formative assessment outcomes, including a district-level analysis, as well as a plan of action for providing remedial teaching to students who  have not  yet achieved the  desired learning outcomes for their respective classes.

 The IT cell of the  office is requested to provide the  child information data to the  Director of SCERT, Andhra Pradesh to send to DCEBs, for the printing of variable data OMRs. The schedule for the  assessment is attached in the  annexure
