As per CBSE’s new exam pattern, your knowledge will be accessed in two areas – Scholastic and Co-scholastic. For the scholastic areas’ evaluation, the academic year is divided into two terms, namely, Term 1 and Term 2 and two types of tests, i.e. Formative assessment and Summative Assessment. The basic idea and definition of both types of assessments is given below:

Formative Assessment: Basically, formative assessment is all about monitoring student learning in a supportive environment and giving the opportunity to the teachers to consult parents at least twice in each term (after every Formative Assessment). In primary classes, the formative tests can be in the form of – home work, dictation, oral test, assignments & projects, class test, class work, memory test, story-telling, elocution, quiz or any other tool found suitable by the teacher.

Summative Assessment: The basic idea behind summative learning is to evaluate student learning at the end of an instructional unit based on certain criteria. The Summative Assessment tests are conducted in pen-paper mode by the respective school at the end of each term twice a year.
