Assessments and evaluations are crucial instruments to measure the progress of the students and to encourage them to fortify their strengths and build on their weaknesses. The method used to assess student progress varies according to the age group. The assessments and evaluations are based on scholastic and non-scholastic attainments; these would be reflected in review reports and progress cards and will be discussed during open houses.
The CCE format of assessment offers a systematic approach to academics and enables the students to enjoy learning and thrive in a stress-free learning environment. Students of Std. I-V are assessed as per the CCE format of continuous classroom evaluations consisting of oral and written class tests, worksheets, presentations, assignments, activities and projects.
