The success of educational innovation is in many ways dependent on the examination system that the school follows. The long term vision of Nps School is to prepare students to think originally, to work creatively and to help them recognize their inner strengths as lifelong learners. NPS School considers the choice of the examination board as critical for the development of its students. NPS School is affiliated to C B S E & State Board. This choice will enable the school to create a balanced curricular plan for students of the senior classes to develop an application based, conceptual understanding of the subjects they study in school. A balanced curricular plan also encourages students to excel in their areas of study and develop a competitive advantage for admission in desirable institutions of higher learning and academic universities.
At Brooklyn NPS School, students are evaluated on the basis of their willingness to learn and the efforts they make to reach their goals. Based on a comprehensive evaluation system, evaluation in the school is a combined effort on the part of the teachers, the parents and the students to better understand the learning experiences for each student.
Processes of learning and the relationships that students create while learning are accorded high significance. Students are usually not compared with each other. Alternatively, they are gently guided to understand the inherent strengths, virtues and potential that they possess within themselves. The objective is to recognize the progress that each child makes in their own learning curve.
Teachers use daily class observations, students' creative pursuits, informal assessments, group and individual goal settings as indicators of progress and development. To the extent possible, teachers and parents together share their observations with the students and seek collective goal setting as the strategy for future development of each student. Like the myriad influences of the school, evaluation at NPS School is also a source of inspiration and learning, and not a time for judgment and fear.
From the middle classes onwards, students are gradually but firmly oriented to take the board examination system. Practice, research, articulation and accuracy assume high importance for the senior students. Opportunities are provided for students to orient themselves to national and international level competitive examinations. Students are guided and encouraged to explore their own levels of mastery and potential for growth in a variety of competitive settings.
Students are assessed throughout the academic year on the basis of their performance through Formative Assessments/Evaluations and Summative Assessments. Formative Assessments and Evaluations are held in the months of July, November and January. Summative Assessments are conducted in September and March of every year.
We are seeing a growing interest among a large number of parents seeking admission to Cambridge Public School, HSR Layout. We would like to inform every parent that we have very limited seats available for the Montessori and Kindergarten classes. As per the policy, we have the following guidelines for admission:
In the Kindergarten and Montessori classes, evaluation is done on a day-to-day basis by way of worksheets based on the syllabus taught. The overall performance of the child is judged by the end-of-the-year tabulation of these evaluations.
Grades 1 to 5 have monthly reviews. These are tests based on small portions covered during the course of the month and give a comprehensive picture of the child's grasping and retention of the curriculum. The end of the year evaluation of these monthly reviews helps in judging the overall performance of the child and his/her ability to meet the requisites for the next grade.
From Grade 6, the school follows the semester system. The year is divided into two terms each comprising two unit tests and one semester examination. Continuous evaluation is done in the areas of theory, practical, projects and viva. Grades are awarded on a nine-point scale. Continuous evaluation in languages is done in the parameters of comprehension, oratory and recitation skills. Classroom involvement, ability to work in a group and leadership qualities are other areas of evaluation. For Grade X and Grade XII students, apart from the semester examinations, preparatory examinations are also conducted to ensure that students are able to face the board examinations with ease and confidence.
The Central Board of Secondary Education does not follow a ranking system. It awards merit certificates to students who secure a numerical score that lies within the top 0.1% of the total number of students who appear for the AISSE and the AISSCE examinations.
