Interim Exam is a test administered at different intervals during the school year to check students’ grasp on content and guide future instruction. They typically fall between formative and summative assessments during the school year.
Cambridge Assessment (CAIE)
Cambridge assessments are conducted to monitor learners’ abilities and progress as par Cambridge requirements. These are:
- Cambridge Progression Tests
- Cambridge Checkpoint
Cambridge Progression Tests
Cambridge Progression Tests are conducted after completion of each stage. At Primary and Lower Secondary levels, Progression tests provide detailed information about the performance of each learner for stages 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8 and 9 of the curriculum. The tests are conducted in school and come with clear guidance, standards and mark schemes.
Cambridge Checkpoint is conducted to assess learners at the end of Cambridge Primary (Stage 6) and Cambridge Lower Secondary (Stage 9). It gives valuable feedback on learners’ strengths and weaknesses before they progress to the next stage of education and provides with an external international benchmark for learner performance. Each learner receives a statement of achievement from Cambridge.
Cambridge O Level Assessment
Assessment takes place at the end of the course and includes written, oral and practical examinations. This gives learners a variety of ways to show their knowledge and skills, particularly when their first language is not English.
- Grades are benchmarked using six internationally recognised grades, from A* to E, which have clear guidelines to explain the standard of achievement.
- Cambridge O Level examination series occur twice a year, in June and November. Results are issued in August and January.
