Classes JKG to II
- The school believes that creation of habits and a positive mental attitude should be the main focus in Classes JKG to II.
- The children of these classes will be assessed on their writing, speaking, understanding, listening and observation skill. The teacher will be free to conduct the tests in written, oral or activity-oriented method.
- It is the belief of the school that the children must feel emotionally safe. Further, that competition among peers must not be based on marks. The focus of the school is on continuous improvement by careful analysis of the mistakes being committed by the student.
- In keeping with above belief, and adhering to the norms of CBSE, no marks will be given for any test of these classes. The students will be graded according the following Scheme.
- There will be no fixed time table for these assessments and the teacher can conduct them depending on the Progress of the class during normal working hours of the school.

Classes III to V
- To promote healthy competition among the students in academics it is essential that the student feels emotionally safe. Being non-judgmental is regarded as one of the best ways to bring about good study habits and helping children become life- long learners.
- CBSE has been advocating a system of grading in place of marks to make learning more effective it is believed that grades help in eliminating misclassification of the students and focuses more on improvement than on merely pointing out mistakes. Grading students based on their performance also does not have any adverse impact and is seen to promote healthy competition among peers.
- In keeping with the recommendations of CBSE, age old practice of declaring students as having passed or failed in the examination will be discontinued. Grades will be awarded to indicate the subject-wise performance of students in Formative Assessments& Summative Assessment. Grades will be awarded on a 7 Point Scale broadly based on marks as per the following scheme:
The entire academic year has been divided into two terms. Each term will have 2 formative and 1 summative assessments.Summative Assessments will be held at the end of every term.
- At the Secondary School Examination level, assessment of subjects under scholastic Area-A shall be in numerical scores to be converted to Grades on a nine point scale which will be indicated in the statement of Subject wise Performance/Certificate of Continuous and Comprehensive Evaluation.
- The qualifying grade in each subject under Scholastic Area-A shall be minimum Grade-D.
- The students will be assessed in subjects under Scholastic Area-A using the conventional numerical marking and later converted into the grades and the same shall be awarded as under.
The achievements of the students in the FA-1, FA-2, FA-3 and FA-4 as well as that of SA-1 and SA-2 will be taken into consideration while deciding the Achievement Report of the child at the end of the session.
The weightage of the Formative and Summative Assessment will be as follows:
- FA-1, FA-2, FA-3 and FA-4 = 10% each
- Summative Assessment-1 = 30%
- Summative Assessment-2 = 30%
