Assessment structure for classes VI to VIII


The new academic session 2018-2019 has commenced with fervour, exuberance, commitment and dedication. The entire school is geared up to facilitate the teaching and learning process. In our endeavour to map the academic excellence with good human values and the holistic development of students, we at DPS Mathura Road always strive to keep ourselves updated and apprised with the ever evolving system of education. At the same time, the school will be incorporating all the measures introduced by CBSE which is as follows:

Subject Enrichment Activities: These subject specific activities are aimed at enhancing the understanding and skills of the students. These activities will be conducted throughout the year and shall be evaluated at the term end. To develop effective speaking and listening skills in language, activities such as recitation, role play, declamation, picture reading and debate shall be carried out. Hands-on activities, Lab work and Project work shall be conducted in Mathematics, Science and Social Studies .

Co-Scholastic Activities: For the holistic development of the students, the students shall be graded in Work Education, Visual and Performing Arts, Health and Physical Education. Aspects such as regularity, sincere participation, output and teamwork shall be the criteria for grading the co-scholastic activities.

Discipline: The students will be graded term wise for discipline, based on factors such as attendance, sincerity, behaviour and values.

Report Card: The Report card, at the conclusion of each term will reflect the cumulative result of both terms. All marks will be reflected to one decimal place.

We appreciate all possible support and unflinching co operation as we moved ahead into a new academic session.
