Examination System


LKG & UKG

There will be no formal examination for LKG & UKG. The assessment of learning outcomes will be made through a Term basis continuous evaluation system. The evaluation will include the month long continuous assessment & tests to be held during regular class hours. Parents will be appraised about their ward’s development on the Parent – Teacher Meeting Day.

EXAMINATION & EVALUATION SYSTEM

The academic year is divided into two terms: Term-I is from April to September and Term-II is from October to March. The child’s learning outcome will be evaluated through Continuous and Comprehensive Evaluation (CCE) based on CBSE’s guidelines.

Continuous Evaluation refers to continual and periodical assessments and Comprehensive Evaluation refers to Scholastic (Subject specific) and Co-Scholastic (Life skills, attitudes & values and other co curricular activities) assessments.

Scholastic Evaluation consists of Formative Assessment (FA) and Summative Assessment (SA). The formative assessment is carried throughout the year by the teacher formally and informally and summative assessment is End of Term/End of the year Examination.

Formative Assessments comprise of Pen-Paper Test, Class work, Homework, Class Tests, Oral questions, Quiz, Projects & Assignments, Practical etc.

Summative Assessments (SA – I & SA – II for Class VI to X) are the Term End Examinations to be conducted by the school/board.

Evaluations ( Evaluation-I & Evaluation-II for Class I to V) are the Term End Examinations to be conducted by the school.

For subjects like Moral Edn., Art & Craft, Drawing, Work Exp. and Games,  grades will be awarded based on continuous evaluation.

TERMINAL / SUMMATIVE ASSESSMENT / PSA (CLASS IX TO XII)

For class IX & X, SA-II dates are tentative and likely to change depending upon CBSE directions and guidelines.

Class XII will have Pre-Board Examination in January. Dates for the same will be circulated later on.

In addition to the above the school conducts Weekly / Fortnightly Surprise Test for Classes IX to XII to assess the preparedness of the students.

CLASS I TO VIII


Weightage Distribution for Final Assessment:

Formative Assessments (40%) + Summative Assessment-I (30%) + Summative Assessment-II (30%) = 100%

There will be no homework assignment for students of LKG to Class II.
Home work assignment system will be followed for Class III and above.
Assessment in Oral, Aural. Activities, HW, CW/CT would be made through the period of each term.

STUDENT GLOBAL APTITUDE INDEX (SGAI)

  • The CBSE SGAI is an optional test for class X students studying in CBSE affiliated schools across the world.
  • CBSE SGAI is a collection of indices such as aptitude, interests and motivation.
  • Unlike the conventional Aptitude assessment, which indicate professional orientations the CBSE SGAI attempts to indicate subject orientations at +2 level.
  • It has been customized to suit the Indian context and variety of student population in CBSE affiliated Private, Government and Aided Schools.
  • CBSE SGAI is not an examination.
  • It is a simple paper and pencil assessments of 1 to 1.5 hours duration.
  • There is NO negative marking, pass or fail.
  • No syllabus and special preparation is required for CBSE SGAI.
  • Mental preparedness and sincere responses are the pre-requisites for this assessment as SGAI assessment may depend upon child's environment stimulus and motivation level.
  • CBSE-SGAI should be taken only as an indicator or a facilitator.
  • The purpose of CBSE SGAI is to help the larger population including parents, teachers and students to initiate a dialogue on academic choices that lead to effective career planning later in life.
  • Final decision on the academic choices may be taken in consultation with teachers and parents.

PROBLEM SOLVING ASSESSMENT (PSA)

 

  • The assessment comprises of qualitative, quantitative and reasoning aptitude of student in all subjects including one language paper (English / Hindi) for class IX and XI.
  • Students have to answer through OMR sheets provided by the Board.
  • Students may opt for improvement test in class X and XII.

In lieu of FA-IV of class X, PSA marks of class IX / improvement PSA marks of class X will be accepted.

OPEN TEXT BASED ASSESSMENT (OTBA)

 

  1. OTBA is an alternative mode of assessment implemented by CBSE from 2013-14 for all the subjects of Class IX and for Biology of Class XI.
  2. The OTBA aims to reduce the learning stress on students in many ways. With the supply of text material to students in advance, sufficient time is given to students to process it and link the learnt concepts to given situation. Since the text material is also part of the Question Paper, the student is relieved from the burden of remembering the content given therein. As far as attempting more questions within the same time is concerned, the Board wishes to assure that every care will be taken to ensure that the Question Paper along with OTBA Section is completed within the given time limit.
  3. The questions under OTBA Section will not be directly based on the text material supplied. Rather it will test the student's ability to apply the learnt concepts to the situation given in the open text material. The students will be tested on their ability to comprehend, analyze and interpret the given situation and offer suggestions and opinions on the given issues based on their knowledge of concepts.
  4. The OTBA has been introduced at present in the five main subjects of Secondary level, i.e. Hindi, English, Mathematics, Science and Social Science. For rest of the subjects/languages, the teachers are expected to follow prescribed syllabus and question paper design.

ASSESSMENT OF SPEAKING AND LISTENING SKILL (ASL)

The overall purpose of ASL is to help improve and standardize students' communication skills in English. For effective implementation of ASL, CBSE has collaborated with Trinity College, London. The Assessment of Speaking and Listening Skills is to be done formally (especially for Class IX, X & XI) of Summative Assessment I and II. It is to be conducted as per the guidelines provided by the CBSE. However, assessment of these skills may also be done under the formative activities spread over the two terms.

IMPORTANT:

For SA – I, in both the Class IX & X, question papers and evaluation schemes will come from the CBSE and evaluation will be done as per guidelines issued by CBSE.

For SA – II, in the Class IX, question papers and evaluation schemes will come from the CBSE and evaluation will be done as per guidelines issued by CBSE.

In Class X, a student can opt for School Conducted SA – II or Board Conducted SA – II. In school conducted SA – II, question paper will come from the CBSE and examination as well as evaluation will be done in the school as per guidelines of issued by CBSE. In Board Conducted SA – II, both the examinations and evaluation will be done by the board. Both the examinations will have same syllabus, question paper pattern, difficulty level and weightage.

For Pass/to be Eligible for Promotion to next higher class, a student has to secure in minimum a grade D in each subject based on overall assessments of the whole year and 75% attendance.

Weightage of Overall Assessments: FA 40%, SA – I: 30% and SA- II: 30%

At the end of the Class X, a CCE Certificate will be issued by CBSE reflecting overall assessment made in Class IX as well as Class X. Also, once the result is declared Certificate of CCE and Proficiency in Co-Scholastic (life Skill, Attitudes & Values and Activities) also will be reflected in the CCE Certificate.
