The Delhi government on Wednesday released the assessment guidelines for students in the Capital up to Class 8, as regular classes had been shut since last March due to the pandemic.

The government said that despite closure of schools, the students in government and government-aided schools under the Directorate of Education (DoE) were provided worksheets, assignments and semi-online teaching learning activities, which will be graded by subject teachers. It also announced the weightage of marks for worksheets already submitted, assignments given during the winter break and assignments or projects to be given between March 1 and March 15.

“Since no classroom teaching-learning has taken place at the primary and middle level, the formal mode of pen and paper assessment is replaced by assessment based on subject-wise assignment project for Classes 3-8 for all government and government aided schools,” the directorate said in a circular.

It further added that if students do not have digital device, students can be allotted assignments and projects in hard copy by calling their parents to school.

“All the currently enrolled students of Nursery to Class VIII shall be promoted to the next class in the Academic Session 2021-22. However, the purpose of this assessment is to understand the impact of alternate learning approach that needed to be adopted under the prevailing circumstances this year.
