Assessment Details:

  • Paper will consist of short, medium and long response questions.
  • The assessment will be divided into 2 components

(i) Component 1: On-Screen assessment to assess Criteria A & B – 60 minutes (Duration will be 90 minutes- to                                        cater to any technical issues that may arise)

(ii) Component 2: Pen and Paper assessment to assess Criteria C & D – 60 minutes

  • Questions will be asked based on the Criteria of individual unit assessed during Summative Assessments. Eg: If a Unit-X has catered to learning objective A- strand (i), (ii) and objective B-strand (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 Central presentations), 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 (on-screen assessment):

  • Fully charged Chromebook will be required for component 1 paper along with your personal stationery and earphones. In case your Chromebook is given for repair, bring a receipt for the same.
  • Rough papers will be given if needed for rough work. These will not be taken as submissions.

Important notes for component 2 (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.

In case of any query/concern, please feel free to approach any of the Grade – 9 Mathematics educator.

 

Thanks and regards,

Grade 9 Mathematics team.
