Assessments

Different students have different learning styles and perform differently based on the context of learning. However, continuous monitoring of a child’s behaviour can help in assessing and develop traits to facilitate the child learn which is why we follow continuous evaluation technique. Continuous Evaluation is designed to cover all aspects of a student’s learning and development. Continuous implies regular assessments, frequency of unit testing, analysis of learning gaps, applying corrective measures, retesting and giving feedback to teachers and students for their self-evaluation. This method of evaluating a student helps them greatly in understanding each thematic units.
