Assessment and Evaluation

The Assessment at NPSI in grades 1 to 9 is through homework, assignments, projects, oral presentations, group effort, regular tests, laboratory work or work sheets. The academic year is divided into two terms. Continuous Assessment ensures periodic review of the concepts learnt and make them ready and confident to take a test anytime.Whether it is a daily assessment, a term-long project or a unit to be worked on and submitted in a week or fortnight, guidelines and expectations are first discussed by the teacher with the class. All grades have a test schedule that teachers fill in as the month proceeds, so that only one test is scheduled for a particular day. This ensures a child’s confident preparation for it, a review the evening before, rather than having to study for two or three tests and burn the midnight oil!
