All the test items should be shown to the parallel teachers and not just the type of question paper. PLANNING FOR THE QUESTION PAPER- A lesson wise blueprint should be prepared and submitted along with the question paper to avoid repetition of questions and testing of all areas. Main ELOs should be analysed for testing and questions framed on that
PERIODICITY / TIME SCHEDULING THERE ARE FOUR PEN PAPER TESTS IN AN ACADEMIC YEAR- TWO IN EACH TERM TEST SCHEDULE FA 1JULY SA1SEPTEMBER FA3DEC./JAN SA2MARCH TIP: 1. A minimum of TWO sets of question papers should be set for each test. 2.The HM/ Exam in charge may select a suitable one. The other one can be used for re-tests and in any other value added manner.

FORMAT- heading of the question paper KENDRIYA VIDYALAYA _________________________________ Year___________ FORMATIVE /SUMMATIVE ASSESSMENT_____ CLASS & Sec: Subject:__________ Date: ___________ Competencies EVALUATOR Name of the Student: ______________________ NOTE: QUESTIONS SHOULD BE ORGANISED UNDER COMPETENCY HEADS/ OR SECTIONS CLEARLY
QUALITY & LENGTH OF THE QUESTION PAPER A QUESTION PAPER SHOULD BE IDEALLY ONLY 4 PAGES LONG ( 2 Sheets of paper back to back) 1.Keep the ELOs in mind while setting question papers. 2.Set the paper in such a way that the average students can attempt the paper effortlessly. 3.Paper should neither be too difficult nor too easy for the students to answer. 4.Set the paper as per KVS norms. Do not deviate. 5.Do not allot ½ or ¼ marks to any of the VSA type questions. 6.Let the language be child friendly. 7.Most questions could be open ended and a variety of answers can be expected from the students. 8.The question papers should provide opportunities to the students to utilize their competence rather than their content knowledge. 9. Marks allotted for each question should not be shown in the question paper. 10. The question paper must have illustrations
VALIDATION 1.Question papers must be submitted to the exam dept with the signature of all the parallel teachers. They must be supplemented with the blueprint and a precise scoring guide. For questions t which can have more than one answer, a small note may be added. 2.The Subject Convenors should check the paper and sign it too 3.The Subject Convenors and Head of the Primary are responsible for the quality and standard of the paper in all respects
GRADING & CROSS CHECKING 1. Random checking of ten papers in a bundle by the HM/ Sr. PRT for FA 1, 3 & SA2 papers 2. Complete checking of all transcripts of SA2 papers by checkers assigned by the Exam Dept and random checking by the HM 1.All papers of SA2 need to be checked because the papers are not given to the children
RECORDING ….REPORTING…. ARCHIVING /FILING RECORDING- All the marks are to be directly fed into the software preferred by the Vidyalaya REPORTING- The test papers of FA1 & 3 are to be sent home, signed by the parent and filed in the Worksheet folders. The SA1 papers have to be shown to the parents in a PTA, validated and taken back. ARCHIVING The test papers of SA1 & 2 are to be retained with the Exam Dept.

It maybe done for SA1&2 if required 4.No marks should be reflected on the paper or informed to children
GROUP 1 MAKE A BLUEPRINT FOR LANGUAGES FOR FA3 CLASS III FA 1 GROUP2 MAKE A BLUEPRINT FOR MATHS FOR CLASS IV FA3 GROUP3 MAKE ABLUEPRINT FOR EVS CLASS V SA2 OTHER GROUPS ANALYSE THE GIVEN QUESTION PAPER AND FIND IF 1.The blueprint is balanced for the underachiever, average and the advanced learners 2.Questions match the blueprint for various competencies 3.Marking scheme is balanced 4.Typography and format is child friendly 5.Language used is child friendly 6.Difficulty level of the question paper is suitable
