ASSESSMENT POLICY

Scaling Greater Heights....

Assessment is the process of gathering and evaluating information on what students know, understand, and can do. 
We believe thoughtful and effective assessment will guide students through the five essential elements of learning: 

  • the acquisition of knowledge 
  • the understanding of concepts 
  • the mastering of skills 
  • the development of attitudes 
  • the decisions to take action

Considering the importance of an Assessment Framework, Gyan Devi Salwan Public School has developed a competency- based assessment framework, which includes competencies, sub-competencies and defined learning outcomes or indicators at various levels for literacy, numeracy, science/EVS, and other core elements of Language and Mathematics.
We assess the core concepts from the curriculum along with application and higher-order thinking skills.

Objectives:

  • To develop students’ understanding of the skills required to succeed in the globalised world
  • To determine students’ interests to make judgments about their learning process.
  • To gather evidence on students’ strengths and areas of improvement
  • To use assessment data to refine teaching and classroom practices
  • To monitor students’ progress over time

Assessments are an essential and integral part of the learning process. The school follows two-pronged approach to Assessment of learning to assess competencies ie.
knowledge, skills and attitudes across the areas of development – physical, social, emotional, cognitive and spiritual.

Observations of teachers reported in one Academic Year are organized under two categories:

1. Ongoing Assessments during each Unit
Ongoing Assessment is used by the teachers to continuously monitor students’ progress and give regular descriptive feedback. This guides students to reflect on their performance, take advice, and enhance their learning.

2. Comprehensive Assessment 
Comprehensive Assessment is carried out towards the end of each term.
