SCHEME OF ASSESSMENT

For Classes I to V :

There are no formal examinations for these classes. Children are assessed continuously in both curricular and co-curricular areas throughout the year.

The process of assessment is learner friendly and learning oriented where a teacher as a keen observer keeps an eye on the participation & performance of a child in various scholastic and co-scholastic activities planned for the session. The observations recorded at various stages by the teacher are documented in a prescribed format on regular basis.

The activities include assignments, projects, various exercises in form of worksheets and practice sheets, the nature walks, field trips and indoor & outdoor co-curricular activities. The lessons are interspersed with project work.

The worksheets of different levels are designed to check the understanding level of the child. The problem of the child identified in one worksheet is again given in the second worksheet. This makes child confident in what he has learnt. Apart from worksheets given fortnightly, the practice sheets are also given to the child.

In classes I and II, Mother Teacher Concern System is followed which builds self – confidence and develops communication skills of the children.

In all classes including Classes I and II, the emphasis is given on group learning where learning takes place in an integrated manner. The group task is given to children to develop the team spirit, communication skills and to remove their hesitation to participate in various activities.

Rubrics are used as an assessment tool to give a clear picture of the child’s academic performance. Rubrics are grading sheets based on five point scale where each point is described by a performance indicator. Rubrics are used for the assessment of both scholastic as well as co-scholastic performance of the child. Rubrics help a child to know about the expected performance from him and the remedial measure to make his academic performance better.

The whole scheme of the assessment is conceptual and oriented towards enhancement of skills.

The feedback is given to the parents thrice in a year in the form of :

1. Subject Report, which tells where the child is standing in various skills and sub skills. It also gives the remedial measures for the better academic performance.

2.Progress Report, where the overall performance is graded on a five point scale (mentioned with the promotion rules). The Progress Report portrays the child’s performance in various subjects.

 For Classes VI to X :

The scheme of Continuous and Comprehensive Evaluation as per guidelines of the CBSE is implemented in these classes. The session is divided in two terms. Each term consists of two Formative Assessments (FAs) and one Summative Assessment (SA) for scholastic areas including academic subjects.
