Curriculum And Evaluation  
Evaluation is the most important part of studies. It helps students to develop the habit of regular, systematic and methodical work.  It is an incentive to hard work and has its diagnostic value both for the teacher and the taught.  The purpose is to see if a given programme is working and is successfully carried out.
Examination is an indispensable part of educational process but it fills a student with fear.  To overcome the phobia of three hour external examination and reduce the emphasis on External Examination, CBSE recommends Continuous and Comprehensive Evaluation (CCE) system.  The purpose is to determine and assess the effectiveness of teaching learning processes, motivate and develop the capacity of abstract thinking & attain desired objectives in scholastic & co-scholastic areas.  CCE refers to a system of school based evaluation of students that covers all aspects of students development.
 
CLASS VI-IX
 
CCE has been successfully implemented from class VI to class X. The system is spread over entire span of academic session in two terms.  Assessment is done in the following manner :
 
SCHOLASTIC ASSESSMENT
 
Apr-Sep         Term I           FA1 (10%) + FA2 (10%) + SA1 (30%)         50%
Oct-Mar         Term II           FA3 (10%) + FA4 (10%) + SA2 (30%)        50%

FA = Formative Assessment,  SA = Summative Assessment
 
FA is continuous monitoring & active involvement in the form of projects, assignments, conversational skills, oral & written short, objective tests, quizzes, research work, group discussions etc.
 
SA is at the end of each term.  It is a pen and paper test and consists of MCQs, short question-answers and long question answers.
Assessment will be indicated in Grades and Percentile Rank.
Different Grading Scales for different classes will be used for scholastic, co-scholastic and non-scholastic common areas, seven point scale for middle & nine point for secondary classes for scholastic subjects while co-scholastic areas will be evaluated in two parts i.e. co-curricular life skills on 5 point and attitude & value on 3 point grading skills.
At the end of each term a common question paper for Summative Assessment will be provided by DAV Board/CBSE for classes VIII, IX and X.
 
EVALUATION SYSTEM SESSION 2011-12 CLASS II
 
The entire session will be divided into 3 units.  Continuous Evaluation of each subject will be taken according to EEDP check list.
Written test of each subject carries 20 marks.  Each Internal Assessment includes oral tests and observation of speaking and listening skills in the class.  This is graded in check list directly and written while other observations are based on 4 point scale i.e.
A               Always                                    - Excellent
B               Usually                                   - Very Good
C               Sometimes                              - Fair
D               Needs Attention                       - Below 40%
For written test, marks are changed into above system as follows :
A                                 - 90-100%
B                                 - 75-89%
C                                 - 40-74%
N                                 - Below 40%
 
EVALUATION SYSTEM SESSION 2011-12 CLASS III
 
The entire session will be divided into six units.  Continuous evaluation of each subject will take place.  Each subject will be allocated 20 (written test) + 10 (internal assessment) marks.
On Internal assessment of 10 marks will be based on Language skills (Reading, Speaking, Writing); lab activities (Maths, Science, Geography); Projects; Note books (Regularity, Punctuality, Neatness, submission in time); knowledge of subjects (oral/written tests) and holiday home work.
Skill Tests to evaluate students on G.K., Computers, Art, Vedpath, P.T., Dance, Music, Conversation will be conducted twice a year.
No consideration will be given to absent students (if no prior information has been given) while calculating the aggregate percentage.  Grading will be done in the Report Cards on the basis of percentage.  No ranks will be given.
 
CLASSES II-V
 
There will be Weekly Tests for classes II to V.  Students (of class II) will be evaluated through their everyday work.  Class Assessment pattern will be followed for class II.  It will help in developing the habit of regular, systematic and methodical work among the students.  For classes III-V, evaluation will be based on weekly tests & that will be split into six (6) Unit Tests and two (2) Skill Tests for an academic session.  To motivate and encourage student to do their best in tests, marks have been allocated for internal assessment and unit tests.  Similarly to avoid the stress of scoring poor marks, grading system on five point scale will be used.
 
CLASSES XI & XII
 
The examination patter for class XI will be spread over the whole year in two unit tests of 20 marks each, half yearly and final examination of 100 marks each.  Subjects with practicals will have two practical examinations – half yearly & final.  Marks are allocated for internal assessment which will be added to unit tests and examinations.  Similarly One Unit Test and three (3) hundred marks examination (inclusive of practicals except in terminal) – Terminal, Half Yearly and Preboard will be taken for students of class XII before students appear for final examination.
No student will be allowed to miss any Examination/Test without prior consent of class teacher.  Permission will be granted only for valid and genuine reason of absence.  Parents will not be granted permission to take their ward home after exam/test is over.  They shall go home only when the school gets over.
The quality, accuracy, neatness, efficiency  in the class assignments, class response, performance in oral and written tests, language skills, holiday home work, projects and attendance will be recorded to decide the marks for internal assessment.
