A combination of formative and summative class assessments is used systemically to monitor student’s progress and guide instruction. Academic year is divided into two terms:

  • First Term(August to December)
  • Second term (January to June)

Preschool

  • Continuous assessments are held monthly based solely on teacher’s observation, class work, and assessment tasks.
  • Reports are shared with parents twice a year, i.e. mid-year and end of year.
  • Students are awarded grades based on their performance.

Lower Primary

The students in these classes are assessed, evaluated and promoted through Continuous assessments which will be held on monthly/ bi-monthly basis. These assessments are:

  • Formative, providing information for the teacher to plan the next steps in the child’s learning;
  • Diagnostic providing information about a child’s strengths and weaknesses;
  • Evaluative, allowing individual teachers evaluate how effective their teaching is;

 There will be no mid-year and end year examination for classes I-III

Three monthly assessments will be held in first term and three assessments will be held in second term. Reports will be shared with parents twice a year i.e. mid-year and end of year.
