Assessment Details:

  • Paper will consist of short, medium and long response questions.
  • The assessment will be an on-Screen assessment to assess Criteria A, B, C & D – 120 minutes.  (extra time will be given to cater to technical issues if any)
  • 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 C-strand (i) only, then the questions from this unit will only be asked in Criteria A and C.
  • All the resources shared on Curricle (subject resource sheet and central presentations), Google Classroom, reference book exercises 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 on-screen Assessment:

  • Fully charged Chromebook will be required along with your personal stationery. 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.

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.
