Classroom Based Assessments (CBAs)

What is a CBA?
Classroom-Based Assessments in subjects and short courses provide students with opportunities to demonstrate their understanding and skills in ways not possible in a formal examination. Classroom-Based Assessments, facilitated by the classroom teacher, are undertaken by students in a defined time period, within class contact time, and to a national timetable.
These are the agreed CBA timelines for Second and Third Years:
Some subjects are awaiting further instructions from the NCCA before they can confirm the dates of their CBA. Once informed the CBA calendar will be updated, so it is important to keep an eye on it regularly.
