ASSESSMENT

CONTINUOUS ASSESSMENT

All assessment is based upon the National Protocol for Assessment (National curriculum Statement).

Assessment takes place on a frequent basis throughout the term. Assessments in the form of Homework, Projects, Tasks, Oral, essays, class tests, etc. are used to assess the progress a student is making. The marks accumulated during these assessments add to the final promotion marks of a student. If a student is absent for any of these assessments without a legal reason, he/she will forfeit the mark. Late submittance of assignments or non compliance to any of these assessments will cause the student to get nil (0) for the specific assessment.

A termly assessment program will be provided to the students and parents at the beginning of each term showing all dates for tests and other assessments for all subjects. Students whose academic progress is not up to standard, will be retained after school for compulsory extra classes and cross grade teaching to help them to improve and get up to set standards.

The Calendar also stipulates dates of assessments (oral, Assignments, etc).
