In ADHYAYAN CLASSES the weekly (or in some cases daily) assessments are used to inform planning and facilitate rapid intervention. Assessments are either carried out as a pre-learning task to identify what needs to be taught in order to bridge gaps in pupils’ knowledge or as a check for what has been learned in that week’s teaching and to aid the retention of key skills.
Apart from the fact that such up-to-date assessments provide teachers with a wealth of knowledge, there are benefits for the children too. Although many in the teaching profession do not like the idea of ‘teaching to the test’, we have to accept that tests will be part of students’ education and we should be equipping them with the skills and knowledge to achieve at this.
Benefits With Our Service:
One of the most important aspects of any child undertaking any test is for them to feel that they can achieve. Giving students regular practise at completing tests, independently identifying their targets and supporting them towards their goals gives the assessments more purpose. In my experience, children actually enjoy this process and relish the opportunity to drive their own progress
