The education department has released two separate guidelines– one for classes 1-5 and the other for grades 6-9. As per the announcement, the progress of the children of classes 1-5 will be analysed at the school level and all students will be promoted to the next class. As TAC did not create an opportunity for these students to come to class, they will not be evaluated in any online or offline format, but be promoted. Students should not be asked to come to school for an evaluation.
For classes 6-9, there have been some forms of engagement that have happened throughout the year– Vidyagama, television, online and physical classes. The students will therefore be assessed through the formative and summative assessments that have already been conducted this year. All students will be promoted to the next year. Those with deficiencies will be given a bridge course next year before the portions for that academic year begins.
