At Ekya Schools, HOW students learn is as important as WHAT they learn. The primary purpose of assessment is to provide students with varied learning experiences using various approaches. This way, learning can be measured, and a holistic understanding of where a child is and where they are headed is gained.

Purpose of Assessment:

The assessments provide opportunities for learners to:

  • Demonstrate understanding of conceptual knowledge
  • Develop attitudes and skills
  • Improve their learning

Pattern of Assessment:

At Ekya Schools, we follow a pattern of assessment that evaluates content, skills and understanding in multiple ways.

  • Performance tasks and Observation-based assessments (For Early Years)
  • Ongoing, ungraded assignments & reflection: This includes tasks like reflection, revision, and application ofconcepts.
  • Graded assessments for Official reporting:
    • External - CBSE/ICSE/IGCSEBoard-related examinations
    • Common- Reviews and Term-end examinations
    • Unit-Based Assessments
    • Student Portfolio

An assessment could be individual or group work or an authentic task. Authentic tasks provide students with opportunities to transfer their learning and solve real-world problems. All assessments focus on the application of learning rather than a simple reproduction of facts. At Ekya, all our students attempt a variety of authentic tasks throughout the year.
