Google Classroom for Capstonians
Spring 2020. It was time for all schools to get prepared for their final Term examinations of the Academic session 2019-20. Unfortunately, everyone is hit globally by the COVID-19 pandemic. Schools across India were asked to close down following Government precautionary directives with the cancelation of exams and promoting students to next grades based on their continuous assessments and performance in FA and SA throughout the year..
At Capstone High, considering the effort that the students of G3 to G5 had put in towards their forthcoming Summative Assessment, teachers put in a bit more of their time and tried to engage our students by sending them Revision worksheets online before exams, to make them utilise their time effectively. This made a huge difference in the learning process. This way we could prepare our students for – Online Assessment, which was conducted with the purpose of evaluating the readiness and progress of students to get into the next Grade..
The idea of Online Assessment brought a smile on the faces of students as it was something different and less stressful. They could be seen happily typing answers to the questions online and enjoying the different type of assessment, away from the usual pen paper exams in the comfort of the home environment. Moreover they seemed excited using the technology in hand.
Capstone High was able to transform and adapt the way its students can approach assessment. Online Assessment proved to be beneficial during this need of the hour and also less stressful for the students.
This approach would not have been possible wit hout the support of the parents who willingly participated sincerely in our decision of conducting Online Assessment.
