Secondary (IX – X) Curriculum
ISM has implemented the scheme of Continuous and Comprehensive Evaluation (CCE) since October 2009, as per CBSE guidelines.

The Formative Assessment constitutes of the weekly teacher constituted Tests, activities, oral assessments, debates, projects, role-play, etc. These assessments provide continuous feedback to both the teachers and learners for diagnosis and remedial regarding transactional activities and learning.
The summative assessment, which is a pen and paper examination at the end of each semester, measures or ‘sums up’ how much a student, has learnt from the prescribed course.
