Assessment Policy


Aims and Objectives of the Assessment Policy

PEA faculty firmly believes that assessmentof students’ performance should be developmental and continuous. In order to have thorough knowledge of students’ achievement, it is essential to vary the type of assessment; formative assessment i.e., assessment for learning, and summative assessment i.e., assessment of learning.

The goal of formative assessment is to monitor students’ learning and to provide ongoing feedback which can be used by teachers to improve their teaching and by students to improve their learning. More specifically, formative assessments

  1. help students to identify their strengths and weaknesses and target areas that need attention;
  2. Helpfaculty to recognize where students are struggling and address their problems immediately.

In addition to using periodic summative assessments such as end of unit tests, end of unit projects, mid-terms, finals, teachers also employ information from a variety of formative assessments, including projects, presentations and quizzes, to analyze needs of the individuals and groups of students with varying educational needs. Formative assessment takes on an increasingly important role as a tool for monitoring progress and planning differentiated instruction.

At PEA, overall growth is essential to consider that all the components of assessment play their role in the development of overall students’ personal success. Self-assessments, goals, formative assessments and summative assessments give insight into the overall development of a student:

  1. The ultimate purpose of assessment is to support and enhance students’ learning.
  2. Every student is a complex individual with a broad spectrum of abilities, skills, and knowledge.
  3. Assessment is to focus on all key areas of student learning and development, that is: core academics, intellectual ability, the arts, social responsibility, and physical fitness.
  4. Assessment is to consider a wide range of relevant performance information, formal and informal, standardized and non-standardized.
  5. Assessment is to be based on valid standards such as grade level expectations, appropriate reference groups, and individual aptitudes.
  6. Assessment data is to be communicated to students, parents, and community on regular basis.

We believe that educational assessment determines how well students are learning, and is an integral part of our quest for improved education. It provides feedback to students, educators, and parents about the effectiveness of educational services. To this we make sure our teachers use questioning in an effective way to reflect students’ understanding of the lessons. Teachers use assessment results to update planning .Assessment results provide good indications on where the students are, what they have learned, and where are their weaknesses.
The school is keen on benefiting from international best practices and International Benchmark Tests. Students are encouraged and provided with suitable and enough opportunities to appear in such tests. Later on, results are discussed and analyzed in the meetings with heads and coordinators of departments so that analysis is used to review the curriculum and rebuild / revise assessment procedures accordingly.

Apart from class tests, weekly tests and unit test, there will be specified dates for proper conduct of Formative and Summative Tests on regular basis. Dates of all Formative and Summative Assessments in Annual Calendar of School. However, a tentative schedule is given below:
