With the thought that multiple modes of assessment are needed to cater to the varied abilities of individual strengths of learners, the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) has come up with the concept of Open Text Based Assessment (OTBA). The concept is meant to develop higher order thinking skills and analytical abilities, thus banishing the rote learning concept. This book has been designed for Class 11th Biology March 2015 examination. The question paper for OTBA will have a separate section of 10 marks for which the schools have been supplied with textual material. The present book for OTBA Biology has been divided into two themes covered by the CBSE for Biology March 2015 examination. Theme 1 covers Life and Living and Theme 2 covers Incredible India. Each theme covers sets of intext questions, CBSE sample questions, additional exam questions, suggested activities as well as list of important terms related to the theme. The OTBA will have questions of higher order thinking skills as well as value based questions based on the text material supplied by CBSE. This is the only book giving the detailed study of CBSE Text Material having analysis of Open Text Material along with explanation of key terms, graphs, tables, etc. The book also contains more suggestive questions, subjective questions, creative and open ended questions based on the given text material. Also for interactive study of CBSE text material for Biology, intext questions of the similar nature as will be there in OTBA have been covered in the book. Answers to sample questions provided by CBSE have been given as per the CBSE prescribed outlines. The book has been designed as per the latest syllabus 2014 - 15. As this book for OTBA Biology has been worked out according to the text material supplied by CBSE and with the best of our knowledge and efforts, it for sure will guide the students about the OTBA scheme and examination.
