Assessment:- The school views Assessment as an ongoing process which is continuous and comprehensive and one that monitors the progress of the child over a period of time. Opportunities are provided to the students to demonstrate what they know and can do. The purpose of assessment is to provide a credible feedback on subject specific areas as well as include various tools and techniques that assess attitudes to learning interest and ability to learn independently. Well designed assessment and regular feedbacks to the learners is a means by which the learners strive towards achieving the standards. The aim of assessment is to improve the learning-teaching process, and to be able to review the objectives of education laid out at different school stages by gauging the extent to which students have been able to achieve the curriculum and performance standards.
