Assessment at the Foundation School is conducted through a variety of formative techniques and tools, without formal tests or exams. The focus is on using ongoing observations to assess the different aspects of students' abilities, and special efforts are made to address areas requiring improvement.
The goals of assessment are two-fold. Firstly, to cater to the needs of all learners, teachers employ differentiated instruction. Through well-planned, regular, and skillful observations, teachers gather information about children's progress over time, ensuring that their individual needs are met.
Secondly, specific attention and care are given to fostering developmental gains in various areas, such as verbal and non-verbal skills, structural knowledge, short-term and long-term memory, problem-solving ability, abstraction, and analytical and conceptual skills. Continuous observations are made in these areas to promote overall development.
