IVWS will follow the Continuous and Comprehensive Evaluation (CCE) System advocated by CBSE. A brief explanation is given below about the CCE System.
- Pre-primary– the children of Pre-primary will be guided the best way possible to learn through multiple activities and from time to time they will be assessed based on their day to day performance in the class, oral work, worksheets and through other activities. So there is no formal examination.
- Primary (I to IV)– IVWS Academic Session is divided into two terms. There will be two Unit tests in each term.The Time Table for each unit test will be given in advance. Parents are requested to kindly note down these dates.Grade I and II will write Unit Tests on English, Vernacular, Maths and Environmental Science (Evs).
Grade III on English, Vernacular, Maths, Science and Computer.
Grade IV on English, Vernacular, Maths, Science, History, Geography and Computer.
Subjects other than the ones mentioned will be assessed orally.
The grades reflected in the Report Card at the end of each term will be based on the Unit Tests and would also include the pupils performance in class – work, home – work, project work and internal assessments on spelling, writing skill, reading, recitation, mental maths and computer practicals spread over the term.
- Grade (V to X)– the academic year of grade V – X is divided into two terms. Term I is from April to September, and term II is from October to March. There will be two Summative Assessments (SA) / Examinations of 80 marks for each subject, in a year, and two Formative Assessments each before SA1 and SA2. Formative Assessments will be taken using multiple tools such as written tests, assignments, projects, quiz, oral test, comprehensions, debate, elocution, exhibition, skits etc. From each assessment a certain percentage will be taken which will add up to 100 percent at the end of the year and an overall grade will be shown in the report card. (Details of the CCE system can be downloaded from the CBSE Website).
- Grade (XI & XII)– Students are encouraged and guided to have an in depth study of their subjects so that they go beyond the examination format. However eaminations are very much part and parcel of the system. Students will have two unit tests of 50 marks each followed by the final examination of 100 marks each, inclusive of theory and practical.
There will be four Parent-Teacher meetings in a year. However, Report Cards will be issued only twice in a year, after SA1 and SA2. Promotion to the next class is earned based on their continuous performance. So it is imperative that students participate in every activity, competitions, project works, quiz etc.
