Examinations



PRIMARY WING

The PYP approach to assessment encourages development of wider critical – thinking and self –assessment skills. Students and teachers will be actively engaged in dealing with the various nuances of the process of inquiry and the students will be steered to assess their work at different stages and will reflect to see if the aims and objectives set for learning have been fulfilled.

Teachers use Formative Assessment to adjust lesson plans to meet students’ needs. Effective assessment also allows teachers to assess their own method of delivery. Summative Assessments are used after instruction to summarize learning for reporting.

The academic year is divided into six transdisciplinary themes. Formative and Summative Assessments are conducted for each theme. The assessment methodology is a mix of skills, activities, presentations and class tests.

There are two terms, the first term is Mar - Sept and the second term from Oct.- Feb of the subsequent year. Each term will have three Formative Assessments and three Summative Assessment cycles. Assessment will be done on the basis of projects, assignments, quizzes, Research Work and Pen paper test etc.


To measure the effectiveness of learning-teaching in PYP, all five essential elements (concept, skill, knowledge, attitudes and actions) will be measured.
