SCHOOL GUIDELINES FOR INTERNAL ASSESSMENT

General Guidelines for all classes & Specific instructions for Classes 5- 8 (w.e.f 01 Apr 2013)

An internal assessment is a continuous and comprehensive process of evaluation conducted during an ongoing academic session, to promote and facilitate the learning process through an active participation by students with a passive yet advisory role being adopted by the teachers.

The primary objectives of the internal assessment are:

  • To integrate the process of teaching and evaluation.
  • To test inherent skills and analytical abilities of the students that cannot be substituted by a written examination.
  • To continuously formulate innovative ideas in a congenial environment.
  • To encourage the active participation of students in self-assessment of their thinking skills.
  • To promote inter and intra personal skills between students and teachers for effective communication.
  • To 

20% marks in each of the evaluation is to be allotted for internal assessment based purely on one of the criteria given below or a combination of more than one criteria as per subject and teacher's discretion.

  1. Unit / periodical class tests (allowed only in 1st term and that to by exception only)
  2. Practicals
  3. Projects – Group / sub group / individual
  4. Activity based learning

Minimum one each of such above assessment required to be recorded for 1st Term Evaluation and Annual Evaluation respectively. Please understand the terminology given in the Council Internal Assessment Guidelines.

The internal assessment need not be always submitted as a written project individually, as also the submission of written work may be allowed on CD instead of register / folder.

Generally for the 1st Term Evaluation, the projects may be based on group / sub groups to be oral / aural / multimedia presented and do not please forget presentation through performing arts.

Also consider reaching out to the other teachers and subjects to try and achieve integration through common projects. You may give common projects but the output of students should clearly show the work of two subjects. For example a History Project on The Battle of the Buldge can be clubbed with an English project on The Charge of The Light Brigade.

In fact the following guidelines for the selection of assignments should be adhered:

  1. The competency, knowledge and the skill levels of the students should be properly identified as that is imperative in the selection of an appropriate assignment to facilitate their all-round development.
  2. An assignment should be so selected to have a broad range of topics to facilitate students to use imaginative contexts and demonstrate original lines of approach.
  3. Easy availability of required inputs / resources that facilitate the assignment progress.
  4. An assignment to encompass the reinforcement of existing class room knowledge, while imbibing a scope for future reference / research.
  5. An assignment should be so selected so as to encourage active group participation that ensures coordination, co-operation and time management resulting in effective team building.

Selection of an assignment should have the following broader perspectives :

A) OBJECTIVES

An assignment should be so selected that should involve the student's benefit with regards to their future applications and must also be directly or indirectly co-related with the class room teaching. This will not only assess the cognitive skills through the application based methods but will also promulgate the investigative role of the students in the learning process.

B) PLANNING

Students must be encouraged in planning the assignment by exploring a range of contexts, identifying resources and subsequent tools of preparation needed for the assignment. The teacher to ensure all possible support and co-operation towards planning and execution of the assignment. The assignment should be so planned that it should be completed as a part of the normal classroom activity to enable the students to realize the objectives in a congenial environment.

C) METHODOLOGY

It should be so formulated or adopted as per the needs and requirements of the given assignment taking the help of the multimedia and internet based technology as and when required.

D) PRINCIPLES OF A GOOD ASSESSMENT

A good assessment and evaluation is such that it not only influences and enhances future teaching and learning processes, but also explores the  creative process of thinking, reflects the imaginative thinking, and must optimize the existing potential skills of students.

Thus this forum should not only be used to improve the learning skills of the students but to improve the teacher's own creative and thinking skills/inputs. It should be used as a chance to bring about change that you have always wanted, to do it your way.

For languages consider book reviews both oral and written. Also try to incorporate the assessment system as laid down for classes 9 and 10.

Project compilation should be done in the class room. Preparatory/Preliminary/Collection of data may be done at home.

In view of the above, projects should be closely related to learning skills to gain knowledge by the students with regards to the topics in the syllabus.

EVALUATION

 

Proposed Guidelines for Marking

The teacher should use the criteria below to judge the internal work done. Basically, four criteria are being suggested: class design, coding and documentation, variable description and execution or output. The actual grading will be done by the teacher based on his/her judgment. However, one possible way: divide the outcome for each criterion into one of 4 groups: excellent, good, fair/acceptable, poor/unacceptable, then use numeric values for each grade and add to get the total.

 

Class design:

Has a suitable class (or classes) been used?

Are all attributes with the right kinds of types present?

Is encapsulation properly done?

Is the interface properly designed?

 

Coding and Documentation:

Is the coding done properly? (choice of names, no unconditional jumps, proper organization of conditions, proper choice of loops, error handling code layout). Is the documentation complete and readable? (class documentation, variable documentation, method documentation, constraints, known bugs - if any).

Variable and Description Format for variable description:

Name of the variable

Data Type

Purpose/Description

 

 

 

Execution or Output:

Does the program run on all sample input correctly?


 

 

For Class IX evaluation of practical work (Assignments) will be done as follows: Subject Teacher (Internal Examiner): 100 marks

IMPORTANT EXTRACTS FROM THE COUNCIL REGULATIONS

FOR ICSE EXAMINATIONS WITH REGARD TO INTERNAL ASSESSMENT

"If no marks, or the letters 'AB' are filled in the column entitled 'Total Marks' against a candidate's name the result of the candidate in the subject will be shown as 'Absent' when the result of the examination as a whole are issued irrespective of whether the candidate appeared and obtained a result in the written paper. Thus, if the projects are not submitted on or before the last date as per the school diary the student will be treated as absent as in case of any external paper in which the student does not appear. The marks for internal assessment for such cases will be entered AB in keeping with the guidelines of the Council.  In the column of the mark sheet(s) entitled 'total Marks' the result of each candidate in SUPW should be given in terms of a grade, namely A, B,C, D or E based on five point scales as follows:

                                                                                        
Standard Grade                          
A Very Good
B Good
C Fair
D Satisfactory
E Unsatisfactory
Grade E is the fail grade and candidates awarded this grade will not be eligible for the award of a pass Certificate.
