In the Kindergarten and Montessori classes, evaluation is done on
a day-to-day basis by way of worksheets based on the syllabus taught.
The overall performance of the child is judged by the end-of-the-year
tabulation of these evaluations.
Grades 1 to 4 have monthly reviews. These are tests based on small
portions covered during the course of the month and give a comprehensive
picture of the child's grasping and retention of the curriculum.
The end of the year evaluation of these monthly reviews helps in
judging the overall performance of the child and his/her ability
to meet the requisites for the next grade.
From Grade 6, the school follows the semester system. The year
is divided into two terms each comprising two unit tests and one
semester examination. Continuous evaluation is done in the areas
of theory, practical, projects and viva. Grades are awarded on a
nine-point scale. Continuous evaluation in languages is done in
the parameters of comprehension, oratory and recitation skills.
Classroom involvement, ability to work in a group and leadership
qualities are other areas of evaluation.
For Grade X and Grade XII students, apart from the semester examinations,
preparatory examinations are also conducted to ensure that students
are able to face the board examinations with ease and confidence.
The Central Board of Secondary Education does not follow a ranking
system. It awards merit certificates to students who secure a numerical
score that lies within the top 0.1% of the total number of students
who appear for the AISSE and the AISSCE examinations.
