No offline exams up to grade 8 in Delhi Government schools
The Delhi government has recently issued guidelines to its schools for evaluation of students up to grade 8, ruling out pen-paper exams and rather, asking them to grade the students based on their projects and tasks. The guidelines of the Directorate of Education have been announced to the government-run and aided schools for evaluation for the 2020-21 academic year, while schools were shut due to the pandemic and all education and learning exercises were handled by online mode. “Since no classroom education has taken place at the primary and middle standard, the regular method of pen-and-paper evaluation will be substituted by a subject wise evaluation of projects and tasks for grades 3 to 8,” stated the DoE. As per the guidelines, for grades 3 to 5, 30 scores will be for evaluation based on worksheets, 30 for the tasks assigned in winter holidays, and 40 for the tasks and projects provided from March 1 to 15.
