Classes VI To X
Education, as a planned endeavour, should aim at making children capable of becoming active, responsible, productive and caring members of the society. It is therefore, deemed essential that it must promote and nourish as wide a range of capacities and skills in the learners as possible. It is with this mission that the CBSE has brought about a paradigm shift from ‘Teaching to Test’ to ‘Holistic assessment’. The introduction of CCE is a step towards assessing and evaluating the holistic personality of the students and not just his/her academic excellence. Students will be assessed through Formative and Summative assessments. FORMATIVE ASSESSMENT is used continuously by the teacher to monitor the student’s progress in a supportive environment.
In FORMATIVE ASSESSMENT, emphasis is more on other activities instead of written examination. These include quizzes, interviews, conversation, visual testing, oral testing, projects, practicals and assignments.
SUMMATIVE ASSESSMENT is in the form of a written test conducted by the school at the end of each term. The Examination and Evaluation system being adopted by the school for classes VI to X is based on the guidelines of CCE. The entire academic session will be divided into two terms spanning from April to September and October to March. Students will be assessed in both Scholastic and Co-scholastic areas.
• Scholastic aspects include curricular areas or subject specific areas.
• Co-scholastic aspects include life-skills, Co-curricular activities, attitudes and values.
The Scholastic area will be assessed through:-
Formative Assessment:- This assessment of the student will be carried out by the teaching teacher formally and informally.
Formal Activities: – Through Unit Tests, MCQ, projects, quizzes, class assignments and home assignments.
Informal Activities: – Through oral work, field trips.
The best of various activities will be taken for each formative assessment.
Summative Assessment: – Through Terminal Examination to be conducted at the end of each term.
Formative Assessment:- 20% per Term
Summative Assessment:- Term I – 30% and Term II – 30%
