Assessment is a very important part of the learning process. However, to create joyous learning spaces, it is important to eliminate the pressure of comparative performance.
The focus of the observations is on important developmental experiences that should happen in the appropriate stages of learning and result in building existing strengths.
Assessment in Junior Classes is based on the ‘constructivist theory’. The underlying principle propagates an approach which is individualistic and directs the learner to improve their own skills. The curriculum and assessment guidelines are designed to observe the four interrelated domains: physical and motor, language, cognitive, social and emotional. Learning is assessed over a period of time and in context. A system of regular Ongoing Assessments helps us achieve this.
