At Akshara we follow the system of continuous assessment which is based on day-to-day observations of each student’s work in class. The focus is on the child’s individual progress in comparison to himself / herself and not in comparison to his / her classmates. We do not conduct formal examinations, but instead we conduct periodic testing through a variety of oral and written tasks and assignments included in the class work at school. At the secondary and higher secondary level examinations shall be conducted along with continuous assessment.

System of Continuous Assessment :
In tune with the National Policy on Education 1986/92, ‘school – based evaluation shall cover both the scholastic and non-scholastic aspects of pupil growth’.
