At Dawhat Al Jazeera We recognize the assessment of learning as a valuable
tool to the evaluation of the instruction and learning process. Learning
outcomes, which include knowledge, understanding, cognitive, personal and
academic skills are explicitly stated for each unit of work, assignment, and
assessment and these form the centers around which the whole course is viewed.
Academic year is divided into 4 quarters. Students are assessed by the end of
each quarter in the form of summative assessments. Each quarter is marked out
of 50 marks with an average of 50 each term (two quarters), which is then
presented in a percentage in the report card. Portions are provided each
quarter, which include: amount studies plus 10% of the previous quarter to
ensure continuity of subject matter especially with the 1st and 3rd quarters.
The student has to attain a passing grade of 60% per subject in all subjects.
Throughout the curriculum and instructional process assessment strives to use
60% formative assessment & 40% summative assessment.
v MAP testing
To know the level of our students along with classroom performance and
other test scores we also consider the MAP test results. Measure of
Academic Progress (MAP) tests are computerized adaptive tests that help
improve learning for all and make decisions to promote academic growth.
