The workshop focussed on enabling the participants to decode Competency Based Assessment (CBA) in the light of NIPUN (National Initiatives for Proficiency in Reading with Understanding and Numeracy, and SAFAL (Structured Assessment for Analysing Learning).

Social Quiz - 2022

Learning never exhausts the mind. Preparing young minds to excel is a challenge. The thirst to know and gain knowledge is created whenever there is a challenge. The challenge to pit one’s knowledge against the other with the clock ticking is exhilarating.

Quiz poses a challenge on not just how quickly one can retrieve knowledge, but presence of mind and trusting the team. We know quiz is team work, however, the knowledge of one person can be a game changer.

Preliminary Round:Every child from class VI – VIII was given the opportunity to participate in the preliminary round of the Social Quiz. Five teams were formed by taking the top 5 scorers from each class making 25 children finalists. The children were given time to get to know the team, training and tips on how to prepare for the quiz. The members of the team were called for special meetings and instructions were given to aid in their preparation.

Final Round:The finals took place in the school auditorium. It began at 10.00 a.m. Students from class VIII were called to witness the quiz and learn by listening. The teams were introduced and they were cheered by the audience. The quiz had 7 rounds- History, Civics, Geography, Economics, General Knowledge, Visual and Rapid Fire. Questions posed to the audience were also well taken. The atmosphere was charged with learning and excitement.
