As per C.B.S.E. the school will follow a system of continuous and comprehensive evaluation (CCE) that covers all aspects of the students’ development ensuring their intellectual, emotional, physical, cultural & social development and not merely limited to academics till primary grades.
The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) has rolled out its latest policy, termed the ‘Uniform Assessment, Examination and Report Card’. Scholastic performance evaluated through written examinations will carry greater weightage than the combination of periodic tests, notebook submission and subject enrichment activity. This system aims to bring about uniformity in the pattern of examination across all CBSE schools.
- Weightage and examination pattern
- For classes VI to VIII
For classes VI to VIII
Classes VI to VIII will have the same format of assessment. However, a class year has been divided into two Terms. So, students of these classes will have to appear for exams twice a year, i.e., at the end of each Term. While questions in the Term 1 exam will be based on the syllabus covered during that term, a certain percentage of questions in the Term 2 exam will be based on the Term 1 syllabus.
For class IX
The pattern of examination for class IX will be similar to that of class X with only one exam at the end of the academic year. Out of a total of 100 marks, 80 marks have been assigned to written exams while the remaining 20 have been divided between three disciplines: periodic tests (10 marks), notebook submission (5 marks) and subject enrichment activity (5 marks).
Parameters of Assessment
- Scholastic performance: Both marks and grades will be awarded for individual subjects.
- Co-scholastic performance: Grades will be awarded for nonscholastic performance in three categories – Work Education (or prevocational education), Art Education, and Health and Physical Education.
- Discipline: Grades will be awarded to students after evaluating their commitment to discipline, which includes attendance, sincerity, behaviour and values.
Formative Assessment Program
An application that formulates customised assessment programs in accordance with the school curriculum and presents immediate detailed feedback on individual student performance.
Students from classes III to VIII are assessed on topics in Science, Mathematics and English. The results assist in measuring the progress of each student, effectiveness of teaching and offer provisions for continuous future improvement.
Students receive a detailed report on their performance highlighting areas that require attention along with remedial measures to better understand concepts and pointers on methods to enhance performance.
