Educational Initiatives

 

Asset 

ASSET (Assessment of Scholastic Skills through Educational Testing), a product of Educational Initiatives, is a diagnostic test which actually helps students improve their concepts and skills. Unlike regular tests which try only to find out how much a child knows (or has memorised), ASSET measures how well a student has understood concepts and gives detailed feedback on the same, to help them improve. It helps each student know whether she has actually understood a concept early on so that immediate action can be taken. The school has integrated this program for all students of classes 3-10 Core Subjects: English, Maths and Science Based on the Indian curriculum (CBSE, ICSE and state boards) Detailed Skill-wise feedback with customised letter for every student Conducted in the school during school hours Schools choose to take the test in Summer (July-August) or Winter (December)
