The School furthers its philosophy of constant evolution, and with this aim in mind we are pleased to share with you the ASSESSMENT POLICY 2016-2017. The School has chosen to adopt the Term-end assessment standards, meeting both National and International assessment criterion. The School year will be divided into three terms. It is statutory to appear for the Term end assessments. WEIGHTAGE AND GRADING: The weightage of the Terms will be as follows: - SUMMER TERM I: 30% (1st August-8th August 2016) - WINTER TERM II: 30% (15th November-22nd November 2016) - SPRING TERM III: 40% (1st March-9th March 2017) Class assessments will form the Formative evaluation. Written tests, oral tests, projects, activities etc. are the assessment tools which will be used. Average of class assessments will be added to the Term-end assessment marks. IMPORTANT: 1) TERMS I& II: Weightage for these both these Terms is 30%+30%. Class assessments will be averaged and reduced to 05 marks.
