Scheme of Examination - Continuous and Comprehensive


Examinations are an integral part of the educational process. Evaluation is continuous and reveals the strengths and weaknesses of the learners frequently so that learners have better opportunity to understand and improve themselves. Our examination system and promotion rules are consistent with the concept of evaluation developed by the National Council of Educational Research and Training (NCERT) and the policy envisaged by the Central Board of Secondary Education. The details about the system are as follows:



The Programme of Evaluation in Various Curricular Areas is as Under


  • Objective-based, aiming at the specific objective of the scheme of studies.
  • Comprehensive, providing for a coverage of all the objectives.
  • Continuous, ensuring that there is no loss of time in getting the feed back about the progress of students; and
  • Dynamic, being completely integrated with teaching.



Schedule for Formative Assessment and Summative Assessment.


The academic year is divided into two terms April to September and October to March. The assessment is done in scholastic and co-scholastic aspects. Scholastic aspects include subjects specific areas whereas co-scholastic aspects include the life skills, co-curricular activities, attitudes and values.


The performance of the students is assessed using conventional numerical marking mode and the same is later converted into grades using a nine point grading scale. Each term will comprise of two kinds of evaluation.


  • Formative Assessment (FA) – This comprises of the tests and the activities such as projects, practical, assignments, symposiums and debates etc.

  • Summative Assessment (SA) – These are the term end examination.

Our approach for Scholastic and Non Scholastic areas.

It is a K-12 school to be affiliated to CBSE. Curriculum designed is the result of the most advance learning system catering to the needs of a school made for Digital Era. It is student centric and compliments a range of teaching methods that meet specific learning goals at every level of pre-primary, primary and middle education. The focus is on academics, personality development and international-mindedness. At the end of grade V students select French as a world language and they study that language through their middle school years.


The curriculum of KRIS also stresses on the inquiry of the mind, and the value of new experiences. The school devises special outings and educational tours that open vistas for students to hone their learning ability and connect with what they have learnt with real life situations. Students are also encouraged to appear for NTSE, Science, Mathematics, Language and Olympiads to enhance their subject knowledge, logical and analytical skills and prepared for competitive exams. Hence the curriculum provides a smooth transition from childhood to adolescence learning.
