As the students enter grade VI their mode of assessment includes Formative (FA) and Summative (SA) assessment. This is a tool to continuously monitor student progress. If used effectively it improves the student performance while raising their self-esteem.
Formative assessment is diagnostic and remedial in nature and provides effective feedback to the students. It allows active involvement of students in their own learning and allows the teachers to adjust their teaching to take account of the results of assessment. It also recognizes the profound influence the assessment has on the motivation and self-esteem of students.
The Summative assessment is the term-end assessment of performance which will be in the form of a paper-pen test conducted by the school. The grading system minimizes misclassification of students on the basis of marks. It eliminates unhealthy cut-throat competition among high achievers, reduces pressure and provides the learner with more flexibility and leads to better learning environment. By the time a student completes his eighth grade he/ she will be thorough with the concepts and all ready to take up the new challenge of board classes.
Students seeking admission must meet the requirements set by the school. A corresponding scale of age is fixed for the successive classes.
