Performance - Measurement & Evaluation

Evaluation is the most important part of studies, infact a performance measurement scale and a crucial phase in examination. It helps students to develop the habit of regular, systematic and methodical work. It is an area of great importance for students, parents and teachers, and enables to check if a given programme is working successfully. It is an incentive to hard work and has its diagnostic value both for the teacher and the taught.

To overcome the phobia of examination and to encourage a student to appear in examination confidently, CCE System of Continuous and Comprehensive Evaluation as recommended by CBSE has been adopted in all classes upto Class X. The purpose is to determine and assess the effectiveness of teaching learning processes, motivate and develop the capacity of abstract thinking and attain desired objectives in scholastic and co-scholastic areas.

Examination Pattern

Nursery - Class I

To develop the habit of regular, systematic and methodical work among students, everyday work is assessed/evaluated and accordingly assessment is made.

Class Nursery - Pre Primary - Class I
Unit I - April 2016 - 31 August 2016
Unit II - September 2016 - 30 December 2016
Unit III - January 2017 - March 2017

Classes II - IV

There will be Weekly Tests for classes II to V. Students of class II will be evaluated through their everyday work. Class Assessment pattern will be followed for Class II. The entire session will be divided into 3 Units. Continuous evaluation of each subject will be taken according to EEDP checklist. It will help in developing the habit of regular, systematic and methodical work among the students. For Classes III, IV, evaluation will be based on weekly tests that will be split into six (6) Unit Tests and two (2) Skill Tests for an academic session.

Classes III & IV

CCE Pattern is successfully followed in Class III & IV. This system is spread over entire span of an academic session in two semesters and assessment is done accordingly in the following manner for scholastic curriculum.

Semester I April - Sept. FAI (30+10 ) + FAII (20 Marks) + SAI (40 Marks) 100
Semester II Oct.-March FAIII (30+10) + FAIV (20 Marks) + SAII (40 Marks) 100
FA (Formative Assessment) SA (Summative Assessment) Grand Total 200 (SAI+SAII)

Skill Tests will be conducted twice a year to evaluate students on G.K., Computers, Art, Vedpath, P.T., Dance, Music, Communication. To motivate and encourage students to do their best in tests, marks have been allocated for internal assessment and unit tests. Similarly to avoid the stress of scoring poor marks, grading system on five point scale will be used (Scales Given). No consideration will be given to absent students while calculating the aggregate percentage and allotting grade if no prior information is given or consent for absence is taken from the concerned teacher/Incharge.

In class II, written test of each subject carries 20 marks. Each Internal assessment includes oral tests and observation of speaking and listening skills in the class. This is written and graded in check list directly and all observations are based on 4 point scale for class II i.e.

A Always - Excellent U Usually - Very Good
S Sometimes - Fair N Needs Attention - Below 40%

Classes V - X

CCE pattern is successfully followed in class V to class X. This system is spread over entire span of an academic session in two semesters and assessment is done accordingly in the following manner for Scholastic Curriculum.

Semester I April - Sept. FAI (10%) + FAII (10%) + SAI (30%) 50%
Semester II Oct.- March FAIII (10%) + FAIV (10%) + SAII (30%) 50%
FA (Formative Assessment): SA (Summative Assessment)

At the end of each semester / term, question papers for Summative Assessment are provided by DAV Board for Class VIII while for other classes III, IV, V, VI, VII, IX and X the school develops its own question papers on the guidelines issued by DAV Board and CBSE.

Assessment of Speaking and Listening Skills in English (ASL):

Keeping in view the need of communication skills and the CBSE recommendations - 20% weightage is given to ASL in Formative and Summative Assessments in classes IX & X; similarly in Half Yearly and Final Term examination in class XI. Keeping in view its importance, evidence in form of recorded data of student’s performance in oral examination is sent to CBSE after Summative Assessment of Classes IX & X and Final Term examinatin of class XI.

Recognising its importance, the school has implemented ASL for classes VI to XI and allocated marks accordingly.

Allocation of Weightage in English Language Paper, Classes IX - XII

Open Text Based Assessment (OTBA) for Classes IX & XI:

CBSE has introduced an element of Open Text Based Assessment for classes IX and XI from March 2014 examination. These are meant to incorporate analytical and theoretical skills, thus moving away from memorization. OTBA is applicable to all asubjects in class IX, SAII examination, and for Economics, Biology and Geography in class XI in Final Term examination. 15% to 20% of open text in a subject will be supplied with higher order thinking skills and value based questions.

Classes XI, XII

The examination pattern for class XI will be spread over the whole academic session in the form of one unit test of 25 marks, terminal, half yearly and final examination of 100 marks each. Subjects with practicals will have practical examination conducted for each examination for both classes. One (1) Unit Test of 25 marks and four (4) examinations of hundred marks each subject (inclusive of practicals) - Terminal, Half Yearly and Preboard and 2nd Preboard will be taken of students of class XII before students appear for final Board examination.

No student will be allowed to miss any Examination / Test without prior consent of Class Teacher. Permission will be granted only for valid and genuine reason of absence. Parents will not be granted permission to take their ward home after exam / test is over. They shall go home only when the school gets over.

The quality, accuracy, neatness, efficiency in the class assignments, class response, performance in oral and written tests, language skills, holiday home work, projects, and attendance will be recorded to decide the marks for internal assessment.

Any fee-concession or scholarship granted is liable to be withdrawn for misconduct, irregularity, less attendance or failure to maintain scholastic standards. 75% attendance is a must to allow a student to appear in Final Examination or continue to get fee concession/scholarship.
