Academic Practices

Pre-primary

The assessment is ongoing and yearlong. It is based on activities, written worksheets and oral assignments. The progress profile of each child is maintained by breaking up the subjects into multiple skills and each skill is assessed on a continuous basis.

Our mentors write a comprehensive and continuous detailed profile on each child, keeping track of her/his growth and progress. A formal progress profile is shared with the parents twice in each academic session.

Assessment in Grades 1-2

The assessment is based on Continuous and Continuous Evaluation (CCE). Each child is assessed on the basis of activities, written worksheets and oral assignments. Subject as well as skill based assessments are done and each child's progress is recorded. A 5- point grading system is followed. A formal progress profile is shared with the parents twice in each academic session.

Grade 3-10

The assessment has 3 components broadly following the CCE pattern: Regular Diagnostic Tests at the end of each topic are taken through tabs ( from grade IV onwards) using the online CompassBox platform . These offer instant result analysis and the teachr can get intensive feedback about each chid which is used to reinforce concepts.

Formative Assessments follow the diagnostics. The formatives have a mix of pen- paper tests as well as activities such as book reviews, role-plays, debates, written quiz and projects. The projects at Indus are such that they add value to a child's learning and are age appropriate and done by the child independently.

Summative Assessments There are two term end tests per subject to assess the Knowledge, Understanding and Application. These are formal pen and paper based tests

A formal progress profile is shared with the parents twice in an academic year.

Grades 11-12

Grades 11 and 12 have regular class tests at the culmination of each and every chapter through worksheets capturing the learning levels. There are two periodicals of 50 marks each and two term end exams.
