The role of a school is not only to pursue academic excellence but also to motivate and empower our students.
At Al Wahda School, we conduct various assessments, such as EM-SAT, SAT, MAP, CAT4, PISA, and TIMSS Assessments, pertaining to the UAE National Agenda Criteria and Parameters.
The academic performance of students is evaluated in the form of classwork, class participation, teachers’ observation, weekly quizzes and monthly tests. In assessing academic achievement, the school utilizes normal and standardized tests. In addition, students are expected to submit projects, research topics, write journals, participate in discovery studies and carry out individualized study assignments. Diagnostic reports that provide feedback to parents are sent at the end of each academic term.
The system of assessments that we follow at Al Wahda Private School is termed as Formative & Summative Assessments.
Formative assessment strategies at AL WAHDA SCHOOL are used to check for understanding of student learning and to make decisions about current and future instruction. Through formative assessment, teachers discover the rate at which students are learning, the current knowledge of students and what information or skills students still need to learn in future. The Formative assessments also help the teacher to give appropriate intervention that is required to achieve grade level attainment and progress.
The goal of summative assessment is to evaluate students’ learning at the end of each term by comparing it against the standard benchmarks of Common Core standards At AL WAHDA SCHOOL, the end of term assessment is summative in nature. Summative assessment is distributed throughout a course after a unit (or collection of topics) have been taught. At Al Wahda Private School, we also conduct other external assessments, through various sources. These assessments act as a gateway for our students to obtain entry to various colleges and universities across the globe.
