EXAMINATION AND ASSESSMENT SYSTEM


From KG to Grade X the School follows Continuous and Comprehensive Evaluation (CCE) that covers all aspects of Students’ Developments.


CCE is a developmental process of assessment which emphasizes on two fold objectives.


These objectives are continuity in evaluation and assessment of broad based learning and behavioural outcomes on the other.


Continuous means regularity of assessment, frequency of unit testing, diagnosis of learning gaps, use of corrective measures, re-testing and feed back of evidence to teachers and students for their self evaluation.


Since abilities, attitudes and aptitudes can manifest themselves in forms other than written words,  comprehensive refers to application of variety of tools and techniques (both testing and non-testing) and
aims at assessing a learner’s development in areas like knowledge, understanding/comprehension, applying, analyzing, creating, evaluating etc.


The comprehensive components of CCE takes care of assessment of all-round development of the child’s personality. It includes assessment in scholastic as well as co scholastic aspect of the pupil’s growth.


Scholastic aspects include curricular areas or subject specific areas where as co-scholastic aspects include life skills, co-curricular, attitudes and values.

 

FORMATIVE AND SUMMATIVE ASSESSMENT


Formative assessment is carried out during a course of instruction for providing continuous feed back to both the teachers and learners for taking decisions regarding appropriate modification in the transactional
procedures and learning activities.


Formative assessments will include conversation skills, assignments, oral questions, projects, quizzes, research work (Group).


Summative assessment is carried out at the end of a course of learning. It measures how much a student has learned from the course. It is usually a graded test, that is, it is marked according to a scale of set of grades.


Summative assessment includes multiple choice, short answers, long answer questions with flexible timing written at the end of each term.
