If during any academic year, it is not possible to hold any examination requiring the presence of all pupils of a particular class on the same day and time at the School premises, the assessment/evaluation of a pupil’s performance will be made in accordance with the directions/guidelines issued by the CISCE to which the School is affiliated. In the absence of any such direction/guideline, the School shall devise its own method of assessment and evaluation based on class assignments and general performance throughout the year.
Guardians are, therefore, requested to see to it that their wards follow the directions given by teachers during online classes, and the assignments/assessments set by them completed and uploaded to the School student portal. Each assignment/assessment must be completed within the time specified and sent to the teacher concerned as and when directed.
- Nursery I till Class II
- No examination.
- Assessment will be on the basis of the work done in class throughout the Academic Year.
- Classes III till IX, & XI
The CISCE has decided that in tune with the National Policy on Education, 1986/92, School-based Evaluation shall cover both the scholastic and non-scholastic aspects of pupil growth.
- Scholastic/Academic Achievement
- Unit Tests/Assignments
- Experience has proved conclusively that the use of the term ‘test’ to denote any attempt at an evaluation immediately puts pupils under a strain.
- A system of ‘unit tests’ usually spanning two or more periods eats into teaching time and denies pupils an opportunity to correct their errors and to clear any doubts because of the lack of sufficient time in between any two sets of unit tests.
- In view of these GHS will rely on assignments in the form of classwork rather than unit tests as a basis for continuous evaluation.
- Half-Yearly Examination
- Annual Examination
- Non-Scholastic Aspects
Pupils will also be assessed internally on the following:
- Socially Useful Productive Work and Community Service (SUPW)
- One activity out of literary, scientific, cultural, and adventure activities
The attitudes that will be considered for rating will include attitudes towards teachers, peers, studies, school events, school property, etc.
- Co-Curricular Activities
Co-curricular activities form an integral part of the routine, and efforts are being made continually to make them as diverse as possible without disrupting the academic routine of the School in any way.
- Classes X & XII
- Regular Class assignments
- Half-Yearly Examination and Prelims.
- Mock Tests on a weekly basis in between the above two examinations.
- Attendance at these Tests is compulsory.
- In accordance with the direction of the CISCE, no pupil of Class X or Class XII will be held back from the ICSE(10)/ISC(12) except under the regulations provided in the Syllabuses and Regulations booklet of the Examinations. A copy of the relevant booklet is provided to each pupil of Class IX / XI.
- Nursery I – Class VIII
- According to the RTE Act, 2009, as amended, a pupil may be detained in Class V or Class VIII. Till such time the Government of West Bengal announces its decision regarding the matter, this School will follow the RTE Act as amended.
- At the end of the Academic year, a pupil of Class VIII will be entitled to receive on demand a certificate to the effect that he has completed elementary education. However, the eligibility to continue in Class IX of this School will depend on his academic performance throughout Class VIII.
- Guardians, who want their wards to repeat a year in any class (Nursery I – Class VII), should inform the Principal of their decision in writing at the end of the Academic Session.
- Classes IX & XI
- All decisions regarding promotion and other related matters are taken in accordance with the relevant rules and guidelines laid down by the CISCE. Such decisions are taken by the Academic Council in consultation with the Class Teachers, Subject Teachers, Director, Coordinators, and Examiners concerned, and are final.
- Progress Reports will be issued twice a year.
