The process of evaluation in the school is comprehensive and continuous. It is a developmental process of assessment which emphasizes on two fold objectives. These objectives are continuity in evaluation and assessment of broad based scholastic and co- scholastic outcomes and are carried out in school over two terms. The First term is from April to September and the Second term is from October to March.
Pre-Nursery to Kindergarten
Assessment is carried out using various multiple modes of assessment such as worksheets, oral work, circle time, participation in assemblies/functions and interaction with peer group.
The yearly assessment is divided into two Summative assessments and four formative assessments.
Syllabus for the assessment is given at the beginning of each month. It also includes the poems (English and Hindi) that are to be taught during the month and the new vocabulary words. The students are judiciously assessed for each Formative assessment through written assignment, at least one activity and oral work in each subject. The report card for the formative assessment only carries the extensive remarks given by the subject teachers, based on the performance of the students during the period of assessment. Students are not exposed to grades or marks to avoid undue stress.
Summative assessment is also continuous and comprehensive with several written, oral and activity based assessments. The report card of the Summative assessment includes grades and remarks given by the subject teachers based on the performance of the students during the term which includes the two Formative assessments and a term end assessment.
The Headmistress keeps the records, in the form of marks, for the various assessment modes. These marks are extrapolated into grades for the term end report cards. Parents are always welcome to know and see their ward's marks which are recorded with the Headmistress.

First Term: FA1 (10%) + FA2 (10%) + SA1 (30%) = 50%
Second Term: FA3 (10 %) + FA4 (10%) + SA2 (30%) = 50%
