CBSE Exam Pattern For Class 1 to 5

As per the latest CBSE exam pattern for class 1 to 5, the assessment of students will be done in two areas i.e.

  1. Scholastic
  2. Co-scholastic

The scholastic area mostly includes test marks, notebook upkeep and subject enrichment. On the other hand, the co-scholastic areas include skill-based activities, art education, physical educations and other co-curricular activities like dance, art, music, etc. The academic year is split into two sessions i.e. Formative and Summative Assessments.

  • Formative Assessment:

Through this assessment, the students are observed on a regular basis regarding their progress in academics. It includes conversations, quizzes, class-work, visual testing, oral testing, projects, assignments, practical, class test, homework, etc. These formative assessments are purely informal, however, the date and time of test will be announced beforehand. These assessments will be conducted in the regular periods of concerned subjects.

  • Summative Assessment:

This assessment test is the final assessment of the student’s performance. This assessment will be conducted twice a year, at the end of each term in the form of a proper pen and paper-based test conducted by the schools themselves.

Practise This Question

School got over and Ted went back home, had lunch and started the best part of his day. Yes, VIDEO GAMES!!!

But there was something different now. Instead of looking at his score, the number of levels etc. as numbers, he was looking at them as Integers. In the game Ted was playing, he has to earn coins. If he gets a gold coin, he gains 20 points, but if by mistake he gets hold of a red coin, he loses 5 points. Suppose he got 19 gold coins and 7 red coins, what’s his total score?
