ASSESSMENT CRITERIA – PRE PRIMARY

Pre- Primary Students are assessed in scholastic and co -scholastic areas throughout the year. Observations are made periodically by the teachers for academic work, behaviour, attitude, classroom activities, interaction & participation in the class. A record of all the work done is maintained on regular basis and a comprehensive progress report is given to parents twice a year.

In our school assessments are done for learning and learning is not done for assessments. Students are assessed in scholastic and co -scholastic areas throughout the year. The progress of the student is judged through continuous academic performance during the year and comprehensive evaluation.

Academic year has two terms:  First term – April to September and Second term – October to March.

A new Assessment policy has been implemented by CBSE. This new scheme will bring the uniformity in the system of assessment and examination for classes IX and X in all the CBSE affiliated schools.

To increase the confidence in the students to start preparing for class X Board examination the scheme for classes VI-VIII has been designed on Term Assessment basis with gradual increase in the learning as the students move forward. This would prepare the students to cover the whole syllabus of the academic year and face the challenge of class X Board examination, and would thus, ensure the ‘quality of education’.

The promotion of student from one grade to another should be based on students’ ability, academic performance and attendance.

As far as overall assessment of a student for the purpose of promotion to next class is concerned, the following points will be adhered to:

  1. Each student is required to get a qualifying grade ‘D’ or above in all the subjects in the Scholastic Area.
  2. If a student does not secure grade D in the annual examination, he shall be granted opportunity for improvement test within a period of two months from the date of declaration of the result of such annual examination. He will have to score qualifying grade D in all the subjects.
  3. Admission to class IX in a school shall be given to such a student who has passed class VIII examination with minimum grade ‘D’ in all scholastic subjects.
  4. If a student of grade VIII scores less than grade D in the improvement test, the school has to detain that child in eighth class.
  5. A student must have attended school with minimum 75% attendance to be eligible for promotion to the next higher grade.

For Class VIII

There will be an annual examination in the VIIIth class at the end of the academic year, which will be conducted as a part of the other examinations being conducted in the school during the academic year.

If a student fails in the annual examination, he/she will be given additional instructions and granted opportunity for re-examination within a period of two months from the date of declaration of the result of the annual examination.

If the student fails in the re-examination and secures less than 33% marks in any subject in the annual examination, the student will be detained in the class VIII.

As per the Assessment structure and examination pattern of class IX, students will be assessed on the entire syllabus of the Academic Year.

Promotion to the next class is subject to the following :

  1. A student must secure 33% marks out of 80 marks in each subject in Annual Examination conducted by the school.
  2. It is also mandatory for the student to secure 33% marks out of overall 20 marks (Internal Assessment) in each subject.
  3. Students to obtain a minimum of 75% attendance to be eligible to appear in final examination.
  4. In case any student does not meet the above criteria the student will be detained  in the same class.
  1.   Promotion is granted on the basis of the performance of the pupil during the entire session.
  2.   A student must secure at least 33% in all the subjects individually and in aggregate in theory as well as practical subjects separately for fulfilling the pass criteria.
  3.   In case the pupil has secured less than 33% in one subject only and 33% and more in all other subjects in theory and practical examination separately, pupil will be eligible for ‘Supplementary’ examination.
