Assessment Details:
 Paper will consist of short, medium and long response questions.
 The assessment will be divided into 2 components
(i) Component 1: Pen and Paper Test to assess Criteria A & B – 60 minutes
(ii) Component 2: OnScreen assessment to assess Criteria C & D – 90 minutes
 Questions will be asked based on the Criteria of individual unit assessed during Summative Assessments. Eg: If a UnitX has catered to learning objective A strand (i), (ii) and objective Bstrand (i) only, then the questions from this unit will only be asked in Criteria A and B.
 All the resources shared on Curricle(subject resource sheet and Google presentation), Google Classroom as well as the worksheets provided(online or in hard copy) will be considered as a part of the syllabus and will be sufficient to prepare for the assessment.
Important notes for component 1 (pen and paper assessment):
 Calculators will not be allowed.
 The entire paper is to be written in the space provided in the question paper booklet. Neither additional supplementary will be provided nor any extra paper will be considered as a part of your solution.
 All the instructions will be available on the cover page of the question paper booklet. Please read these instructions before attempting the paper.
 Sharing of any resource will not be allowed.
 You need to carry your personal stationery.
Important notes for component 2(onscreen assessment):
 Fully charged Chromebook will be required for component 2 paper along with your personal stationery and earphones. In case your Chromebook is given for repair, bring a receipt for the same.
In case of any query/concern, please feel free to approach any of the Grade – 8 Mathematics educator.
Thanks and regards,
Grade 8 Mathematics team.
