The objectives of the Scholastic domain are:-
- Desirable behaviour related to the learner’s knowledge, understanding, application, evaluation, analysis and the ability to apply it in an unfamiliar situation.
- To improve the teaching learning process.
- Assessment is both Formative and Summative
Formative Assessment is a tool to continuously monitor the student’s progress in a supportive environment. Summative Assessment is carried out at the end of the course of learning during terminal exam. It measures or ‘sums-up’ how much a student has learned from the course. It is usually a graded test i.e. it is marked according to a scale or set of grades. These paper pencil tests are the most traditional way of evaluating student’s work.
The desirable behaviour related to learner’s life skills, attitudes, interests values, co-curricular activities and physical health are described as skills to be acquired in Co-Scholastic domain.
