“The first Learnometer Assessment was conducted on September 2, 2016.The assessment report, outlined the child’s performance, skill profile and action plan for improvement. The assessment focused on three main areas – Conceptual Understanding, Applied Thinking and English Language and Comprehension. The Learnometer Assessment measures thinking and not just memorization. The assessment report reflected a personalized skill profile of the student on 10 critical skill areas and an action plan for improvement. The Learnometer Assessment is a short multiple – choice test with Optical Mark Recognition (OMR) answer sheets and evaluation. The test report helps the parent to know the child’s understanding of the subject taught in School and its application in the real world. The assessment report also gives useful feedback on the child’s strengths, areas of development and Higher Order Thinking Skills (HOTS). HOTS is an important component of all board / competitive examinations and is necessary to succeed in any professional field.
Early Childhood Education
It is acknowledged globally that the first 8 years of a child’s life are important years in his/her development as it is in these years that synaptic connections are formed in the brain of the child. Studies have shown that if the child is not supported by a stimulating and enriching physical and psychosocial environment in these early years, brain may not develop to its full potential. It is also a critical time for the formation of social values and personal habits in the child which could last a lifetime.
Therefore, early Childhood Educators, together with families, should plan with care, activities for the body, hands, minds, and senses of children so as to promote learning to achieve the following goals:
- To inspire delight, curiosity, and inquiry in the school programme
- To build intrinsic motivation and a long-term love of learning.
- To create the foundations for later learning in the primary school
Christwood Early Childhood Curriculum is designed to:
- Recognize the potentials and talents that exist in children
- Understand the unique strengths and challenge of each child
- Solve problems that each child encounters in real life by generating new problems to solve;
- Ensure that every child is able to make something or offer a service that is valued within one’s culture and society.
