Scheme of evaluation for pre-school and pre-primary classes

Evaluation of learning is a comprehensive process as it focuses on daily, consistent progress made by the child. This procedure is based on the child’s daily interaction in the class, his/her levels of general awareness, quality of work produced by him/her and internalization of the concepts taught. The approach is not purely academic, but attaches equal importance to participation in co-curricular activities.
