Examinations and Assessments
Regular assessments are implemented to understand and improve student learning. External examinations are held to gain nationally and internationally recognized qualifications and to provide a benchmark for student achievement.
Assessment and Evaluation in Kindergarten
Assessment of a child’s learning is key to his/er individual development. Assessments are ongoing in this phase with a few planned assessments to track the progress of the students. Teachers record their observation in the individual progress record maintained for each child. The progress is tracked based on the early learning goals that are to be achieved by the end of KG2. Teachers observe, monitor and document the progress of each student on an on-going basis and communicate the same to parents regularly, in addition to the end-of-term report, which is given out twice a year. A record of the child’s performance is maintained.
