Semester system is applied in our school. Each academic year consists of two semesters with semester examinations. The students are evaluated on a monthly grading system. Student’s progress report is given to the parents along with grades, semester examination marks and teachers comments.
The school has adopted grading system, an approach to evaluate the performance of the students. This evaluation is carried out usually on a monthly basis. According to this approach, students will be evaluated on the basis of their work (assignment), unit test as well as class participation, project work and their personal disposition.
The advantages of this approach
Each subject teacher calculates the marks obtained in homework classwork project work and unit tests and decides the academic grades- A, B, C, D and E to be awarded. The teacher also evaluates the student on his/her personal disposition such as attitude, motivation, and class participation and so on. The teacher, then, decides the disposition grades- 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5. It means a student may get for example C1. It means he/she is average academically in the class but at the top on personal disposition.
