  1. Term I
  2. Term II
Assessment / Test Guidelines: Kindergarten / Junior I & II:

At the end of every lesson / chapter / topic, there will be a class test of maximum 10 marks. Teachers may combine 2 small lessons or topics in a test whenever required.

Teachers may announce the test date(s) well in advance by stamping the students’ diaries having mentioned subject, topic and test date in it. In case of any unforeseen trouble or inconvenience it may be announced 1 day advance.

If a test is postponed due to an unforeseen holiday, it may be taken any day un-announced. No restamping will be done for that test, a note in the dairy will be sent though for the change in date.

If a child is absent on the test announcement day, his/her diary will be stamped the next day, but if he/ she would stay absent for two consecutive days, school should not be hold responsible for not informing that child / parents.

N.B: To prepare for an Assessment a student MUST thoroughly read and learn the complete lesson from the book and the copy work.

After checking and discussion, the test papers will be returned to the students. For the parents’ awareness, again student’s diary will be stamped having mentioned ‘Subject’, ‘Topic’ and ‘The date of return’ on it. If you do not find the “Test Returned Stamp” please inform it to us in written within a week.

Assessment / Test Guidelines: Kindergarten / Junior III-X:

In three onwards classes Test-date, subject and topic will be announced by teacher in the class. Students will write subject, topic and test date in Assessment Schedule given in the Home Assignment Diary by themselves.

Test Papers after checking will be returned to students by the same process as mentioned above.

Parents will sign the Assessment Schedule when:

  • Receive Test date (Sign – 1)
  • Receive Test Paper after checking (Sign – 2)

If your child does not receive the checked test paper till the 8th day of the last announcement date, kindly contact school promptly to enquire.

This is parents’ responsibility to keep these test / assessment papers safely in a file at home for a record.

Subject wise official data of every student is maintained regularly by the school that may be shown to the parents upon request only.

Assessment Policy:

As per the Assessment Policy Re – Assessment due to absence / failure / low performance will not be taken.

For each subject N – 1, 2 formula will be applied.

  • o N = Total Number of Assessments taken
  • o – 1,2 assessment of low performance / absence / failure will be excluded.

Number of Assessments excluded will depend on subject weightage and total number of Assessments taken. Management will decide the number of assessments excluded for each subject.

Absentees Assessment / Exam will not be taken.

Absentee will be considered fail in that particular test / Exam.

We do not RETEST. Parents therefore, are requested to make their ward regular and punctual.

Assessment Criteria and Marks Allocation:

A balanced allocation of marks is essential. A final coursework percentage for each term that is based on few samples of students’ performance, work, and efforts does not provide a fair and sufficient representation of students’ work. Therefore, we have planned to expand the assessment criteria for students which are as follow:

  • Assessments based on topics, lessons, chapters, units from the syllabus
  • Class work (Work completed in class)
  • Oral work (Recitation of Ayat with translation , Hadith, poems , Viva)
  • Notebook/ Handwriting (Neat and tidy presentation of work)
  • 5 marks per term are allocated for copy maintenance.
  • Home Assignments and tasks (Any days routine homework can also be marked)
  • Project work (Work presentation, meeting deadline, relevance of material, bibliography / reference, acknowledgment, oral presentation of the project in class)
Term Reports:

Child’s Term I and Term II Reports will be compiled as mentioned below:

Pre-Nursery / Nursery:

The above-mentioned classes do not have exams instead students are assessed on the basis of ongoing assessment.

Kindergarten / Junior / Senior: Term I Report:

Term I Assessments marks + Half yearly Examination Marks = Term I Result

40% + 60% = 100%

Term II Report:

Term I Result + Term II Assessments Marks + Final Examination Marks = Accumulated Result

20% + 20% + 60% = 100%

Note: Child’s promotion to the next class or detention in the same class is dependent on the Accumulated Result.

If parents wish to write a note in the diary for any teacher they may do so but if they wish to communicate with the principal a separate paper should be used. You may also make a phone call to the principal for registering your complaint if you do not get a response of your written note.

Diaries are checked in the diary period; therefore, you may not get an immediate response on the same day.

If on the parents note ‘Seen’ is written that means your query or complaint has reached to the concerned person.

Teachers or the principal may respond in the form of a note written in the child’s diary for their parents.

If the matter would be serious and urgent, the principal may like to see you personally at school.

For writing a note in the diary, kindly use pen or ball point. Avoid sending us note written with pencil.

The Home Assignment Diary has “Important Notes” Pages in it. They are for the Principal / Coordinator to write a note for parents regarding any issue.
