Assessments Policy

The assessments for K1 to Grade 4 are based on ongoing continuous assessments. The Report Card focuses on the general skills and objectives of each subject and the students are given grades. This helps the parents to get an idea of the progress of the child and which skills need to be reinforced.
The assessment for the year 2018- ‘19 for Grades 5 to 8 will be as follows:

1stTerm 2ndTerm
Formative Assessment Summative Assessment Formative Assessment Summative Assessment
20% (Internal assessments that consists of class participation, projects, homework submissions, class work etc.) 20% of the 1st Unit Test
60% of the 1st Term Examination
20% (Internal assessments that consists of class participation, projects, homework submissions, class work etc.) 20% of the 2nd Unit Test
60% of the Annual Examination

The Report Card will be based on the cumulative assessment of both the 1st and 2nd Terms.
It will include 20% Formative assessments and 20% of the Unit tests and 30% of the First Terminal Exams and 30% of the Annual Exams which will constitute to 100%.

The formative assessment will be ongoing and will include a variety of strategies like quizzes, chapter checks, observations, discussions, projects to assess the learning of the student as well as focus on skills such as organization and time-management. There will be one-unit test for each term.

For Grades 9 and 10, we will have 100% Formative assessment and 100% summative assessments. For the final report card, we will take 50% of the Formative assessment from 1st and 2nd term and 50% of the summative assessment from both the terms. This is to encourage students to have a regular study routine and discourage them for cramming before the exams.

Note: The Report Card is sent to parents at the end of both the terms through mail.

Absenteeism during Examinations and Unit Tests: Students, if absent due to any reason during exams or Unit Tests will not be given a retest except in grade 9.

In the case of sickness, a medical certificate from a registered general medical practitioner is required.

Policy on Pickup and Drop of Students:

  • At the start of the year, the school holds a meeting with all the School Bus drivers. The people in charge go over the procedures required of them and provide guidelines, so that the students are safe.
  • Misbehaviour by the children can cause distraction to the driver, and this can lead to dangerous situations. So, the school gives authority to the bus teacher in charge, to inform the   School Coordinators to contact the parents of the child, in such cases.
  • The school reviews the bus safety rules with the students and the students sign a safety rule copy to acknowledge that they have understood the rules.

When a child breaks the rules, it is an offense, and the school follows the following procedure :

First reported offense:  The School Coordinator meets the student and listens to his/her explanation.

Second time offense by the same child:  The School Coordinator contacts the parents of the child on the telephone to make them aware of the mis-behaviour.

Fourth time offense by the same child: The student is suspended from using the bus facility for 7 working days.

Fifth time offense by the same child: The student loses the privilege of using the school vehicle for the rest of the school years.  Parents should make arrangements to drop and pick up their ward.
