Academic Assessment

The assessment process at VTS is designed to provide feedback to teachers, students and parents about the effectiveness of the teaching methodology. The purpose is to identify specific learning needs and modify the teaching strategies to meet these needs.

For primary and secondary students, all class-work and home-work assignments,

projects and participation in co-curricular activities are recorded and graded periodically. Formal testing procedures are followed only for Std. I onwards. The test schedules are notified to parents through the students’ diary ten days prior to the test. Students using unfair means during tests will be debarred from the examination and would have to face disciplinary action.
