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 assessment to assess Criteria A & B – 60 minutes
(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:
- 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 – 7 Mathematics educator.
Thanks and regards,
Grade 7 Mathematics team.
