The Academic Assessment is an important task for teaching and learning process hence the Assessment pattern has been developed after conducting research of various international standards together with a balance of the NCERT guidelines. Instead of individual achievement, the stress is to analyse what the peer group has been able to learn in the classroom inducing a spirit to use the knowledge base in real life situations.

The entire session for the senior classes is divided into two semesters whereby the CCE (Continuous & Comprehensive Evaluation) is followed. To evaluate students’ academic performance, periodic formative tests of Objective /Subjective nature are conducted every Semester. Apart from this there are Semester Exams and Pre-Board Exams for assessing the CBSE level of understanding and application.

Our school being affiliated to the CBSE, the assessments for the secondary and the senior secondary sections is in adherence to the Assessment guidelines laid down by the boards. This includes the conduct of PSA (Problem Solving Assessment) for Classes IX to XI and the OTBA (Open Text based Assessment) for Class IX and XI.

The PSA is a new tool of assessment, introduced by the Board in the session 2012-13 for the students of Class IX and XI. This assessment is carried out in school, but is conducted by the board. The PSA is a single test comprising of 60 MCQ’s (Multiple Choice Questions) carrying 90 marks, accessing the life skills related to the following areas:

    •  Qualitative reasoning: Reasoning seen in humanities, Arts and social Science.
    •  Qualitative reasoning: Reasoning found in Mathematics and Science.
    •  Language Conventions: Different aspects of written communication like grammar, vocabulary etc.

The scores of PSA for Class IX are counted towards the Formative Assessment IV . The students of Class XI, are awarded with PSA certificates issued from the Boards.

The OTBA (Open Text Based Assessment) is the tool of Assessment, introduced for Class IX and XI, in the session 2013-14. The OTBA is the integral part of the Summative Assessments, comprising of printed text materials (containing case studies). These printed case studies are provided to the students, along with the main question papers, that contain around 10 to 12 marks of questions from this printed text.

The co-scholastic performance of the students is evaluated through various activities which are either individual or group tasks. We have incorporated several activities in our curriculum like Thursday Activities and SUPW clubs, which enhances the innate co-scholastic talents amongst the students. We also have the inter-class and intra-class events and competitions embedded in our curriculum. The participation and performance of the students in these activities and programs helps the Class teachers, Co-curricular teachers in evaluating the co-scholastic performance of the child.

For the tiny tots, i.e. Classes Nursery to III, the academic year is divided into three terms. There are no formal examinations for these classes. However, evaluation of the child’s progress is done on the basis of day to day performance under the Continuous and Comprehensive Evaluation (CCE). These theme based assessments are carried out in various ways which include written assessments via worksheets and written work done in the notebooks in school and at home, oral assessments via classroom discussions and interactions, and activity assessments that are judged primarily through Thursday activities, Project activities, Learning centre activities, creative work etc.
