THE ASSESSMENT AND EVALUATION AT KALVI SCHOOLS

Learning is a process of continuously modifying knowledge and skills. Sometimes new inputs call for additions and extensions to existing knowledge structures; at other times they call for radical reconstruction. In all cases, feedback is essential to guide, test, challenge, or redirect the learner's thinking. Assessment information by itself simply reveals student competence at a point in time;

  • A clear view of the learning goals.
  • Information about the present state of the learner.
  • Action to close the gap.
    • are the three elements that relate directly to assessment, curriculum, and instruction. The learning goals are derived from the curriculum. The present state of the learner is derived from assessment, so that the gap between it and the learning goals can be appraised. Action is then taken through instruction to close the gap While the ultimate goals for learning are established by the curriculum, which is usually mandated externally (e.g., by board curriculum standards). Our teachers and Academic Heads responsible for designing curriculum, instruction, and assessment carefully fashion intermediate goals that can serve as an effective route to achieving the ultimate goals.

      This is done by developing an understanding of how people represent knowledge and develop competence in the domain.

      At Kalvi Schools we focus our attention on what our students are learning' along with the skill sets they are acquiring', it becomes imperative to strengthen current And all our assessments are geared towards students acquiring the skills of critical thinking, problem solving, analysing information, collaboration, effective communication, developing curiosity and imagination as part of the learning process.

      We follow a periodic assessment pattern that ranges from small DIY assignments to a pen and a paper examination pattern. The teachers conduct mental math assessments at the start of a new topic. The assessments are focussed on evolving an overall skill upgradation in the learners .Our schools encourage online assessment for learners right from their primary grades to get them acquainted with the demands of the modern Job Industry's pattern of assessment.

      The assessments are evaluated with fair and uniform codes of evaluation rubrics designed for each subject and each grade. This enables our learners to analyse their assessment results and perform better.

      The end of the term examinations are conducted for all grades to consolidate the understanding of their learning .These results are tabulated in the individual Progress cards and shared with the parents of the students.
