At King’s College India we strive to maintain a balance between Summative assessments (end of Unit/course) and Formative Assessments (During the learning process).Frequent summative assessments take away from learning time and so we limit these. During the IGCSE programme, we run ‘mock’ examinations as it is an important part of IGCSE’s that students understand the format and what is being asked of them within an examination context.
Centre for Evaluation and Monitoring (CEM)
An important aspect of what we do is to be sure our standard of education is at and well above the UK national average. This is important for our parent as well, so they can feel confident that their child is receiving a quality British education. To do this, we use the Center for Evaluation and Monitoring (CEM) from Durham University on the UK.
