Assessments


Savio College uses various types of assessments in order to provide feedback to students and parents about the student’s educational progress.

Savio College SLT and educators periodically evaluate and update the college’s assessment policy so that it is as effective as possible in informing on student progress.

To date there are two formal assessment sessions:

  • Half Yearly Examination session (40%)
  • Annual Examination session (60%)

At the end of each scholastic year students are provided with a global grade that is based on 40% of the Half Yearly Examination grade and 60% of the Annual Examination grade for each subject.

Furthermore, all the coursework (classwork, homework and tests) done by students throughout the year contributes to 25% of both the Half Yearly and Annual examination grades.

Educators are strongly encouraged to apply assessment for learning strategies such as the use of success criteria and the providing of meaningful feedback in their teaching and assessment practice.
