3 GENERAL INFORMATIONan integrated perspective for the primary stage of schooling anddraws upon insights from sciences, social studies and environmental education.The new EVS syllabus indicates the following objectives of teaching science and social studies at the primary stage:- to train children to locate and comprehend relationships between the natural, social andcultural environment- to develop an understanding based on observation and illustration, drawn from livedexperiences and physical, biological, social and cultural aspects of life, rather thanabstractions- to create cognitive capacity and resourcefulness to make the child curious about socialphenomena, starting with the family and moving on to wider spaces- to nurture the curiosity and creativity of the child particularly in relation to the naturalenvironment (including artifacts and people)- to develop an awareness about environmental issues- to engage the child in exploratory and hands-on activities to acquire basic cognitive andpsychomotor skills through observation, classification, inference, etc.- to emphasise design and fabrication, estimation and measurement as a prelude to thedevelopment of technological and quantitative skills at later stages- to be able to critically address gender concerns and issues of marginalisation and oppression with values of equality and justice, and respect for human dignity and rightsSource – Syllabus for classes at Elementary Level, based on NCF 200
4 LEARNING IN EVS AND ASSESSMENT- an example Analysis and Inference: What kinds of cooked food did you eat?Non-Evaluatory Activity: Begin with children singing a song on food items.Evaluation Activity: List all the kinds of foods you have eaten in the last week. Use the tablegiven below for analysis. Now describe which kind of food items you ate the most.Grading IndicatorsA - Student identifies the issue herself and comes to a conclusionB - The issue is analysed but the inference is not correctC - The teacher needs to give clues for analysis and inference

9 CORE GUIDELINE NOTE: Three activities i.e. Written assignments, Group Projects andMCQwill be common under the scheme of FA 2 and FA 4.In addition, a teacher is free to carry out minimum one meaningful activity out of the suggested list of areas. Finally, the marks secured by children out of four or more activities under FA 2 and FA 4 need to be reduced to 10 respectively.
10 Syllabus Themes in the New Primary Syllabus The new syllabus is woven around six broad themes given below-the predominant theme on ‘Family and Friends’ is made of four sub-themes:1 Family and Friends – 1.1 Relationships;1.2 Work and Play; 1.3 Animals; 1.4 Plants2 Food3 Shelter4 Water5 Travel6 Things We Make and Do

16 SUGGESTIONS FOR IMPLEMENTATION INTEGRATE ASSESSMENT ACTIVITIES WITH THE REGULAR TEACHING LEARNINGWORK WITH GROUPS OF STUDENTS RATHER THAN WHOLE CLASSDIFFERENTIATE THE CONTENT, TLP (TEACHING-LEARNING PROCESS ) AND ASSESSMENT ACCORDING TO THE LEVELS OF THE LEARNERPLAN ASSESSMENT ACTIVITIES FOR BLOCK PERRIODSPLAN PORTFOLIO WORK FOR DESIGNATED DAYS / ‘NO BAG DAY’
17 DISCUSSION OF A TEACHER’S TIMETABLE IN TERMS OF THE FORMATIVE ASSESSMENT CYCLE
18 SUMMARY 3.A good Teacher Record of Assessment reflects 1.The formative assessments are part of the Teaching-learning Process2.They should be on a continuous mode -regular and frequent.3.A good Teacher Record of Assessment reflectsRegularity of AssessmentCriteria of AssessmentDiagnosis and remediation for the students with learning difficulties, progress for the average and enrichment for the advanced learnerFeedback to the Teacher and the LearnerTeacher’s reflections/ notes on the learning of the children on a regular basis
19 SUMMARY contdThe BLUPRINT gives complete information on the Process of AssessmentThe CCE Plan gives a list of activities. However the teacher is free to conduct their own activities , keeping the competencies of EVS in mind as stated in the example.The Teacher Format serves as a complete record of the details of assessment , diagnosis, feedback, remediation and enrichment measures.The Teacher Record is comprehensive and if supported by sufficient evidence of student works in class work and portfolios , does not require additional records for remedial work etc.The scores from the teacher record are to be entered in the recommended software for computation, grading, analysis and abstract generated automatically by it.
20 SUMMARY contd4.All computation of grades, analysis and abstract can be done using the recommended software5.Evidence of Assessment is maintained by-Index entries in Classwork , Worksheet Folders and PortfoliosSamples of products/artifacts of student works in student PortfoliosNotes on performances such as role play, narrations, multimedia, etc in Portfolios
21 NCF 2005School Based Continuous and Comprehensive Evaluation system is Introduced to:Reduce stress on childrenMake evaluation comprehensive and regularProvide space for the teacher for creative teachingProvide a tool of diagnosis and remedial actionProduce learners with greater skills( Position Paper on Aims of Education - NCF 2005, NCERT)
