An English Medium CBSE School
An ongoing evaluation system is followed, the basic purpose of which is to give feedback on a regular basis to the child, parent, educator and school. The basic objective of announced tests is to provide a reasonable amount of preparation time, which will also help children overcome ‘exam phobia’. Whereas, surprise tests help in gauging the level of internalization and understanding of concepts learned at a given point in time. Similarly, projects help children to develop an ability to learn on their own, by locating information and not depending on memorization of facts. In English, for example, understanding of nouns and verbs is evaluated through a project of developing a game. Likewise, in Math’s to evaluate the concept of money a market situation is created where children actually get the chance to negotiate and buy objects. Class participation, attention, interest, regularity and quality of homework and class work, and educator’s observation are also an integral part of the evaluation process. They give an estimate of the quality and consistency of performance over a period of time. All these elements ensure that evaluation is objective and not based on any one particular skill or ability.
