HOTS questions for Board exams
One of the changes in the question paper pattern for this year’s 10th and 12th standard CBSE examinations is that a certain percentage of the questions would be based on higher order thinking skills (HOTS).
The CBSE has during the past few days been posting sample questions related to HOTS on some subjects for the 10th and 12th standards on its web site. The URL to the related documents are: http://www.cbse.nic.in/hots-x-2007.doc and http://www.cbse.nic.in/hots-xii-2007.doc.
