ASSESSMENT

Teacher and students are responsible for the on-going-assessment of students’ work.  International and national benchmarks are used by Insan Cendekia Madani school to ensure the school is meeting acceptable standards in all areas of learning.

There are three types of assessment we apply in our learning:


1. Diagnostics

Given at the beginning of the school year, or the beginning of a new unit of study. A diagnostic test attempts to quantify what students already know about a topic.

Type of diagnostic assessment:

  • Pre tests
  • Self-assessment
  • Discussion board responses
  • Interview

2. Formative

Given throughout the learning process, formative assessments seek to determine how students are progressing through a certain learning goal.

Type of formative assessment:

  • Observation
  • Reflections
  • Question and answer session
  • Conferences
  • In-class activities
  • Student feedback

3. Summative

Given at the end of the year or unit, summative assessments assess a student’s mastery of a topic after instruction.

Type of summative assessment:

  • Examinations
  • Term papers
  • Projects
  • Portfolios
  • Performance
  • Student evaluation

The students are involved in developing the criteria for assessment in partnership with the teachers. As a result, they understand exactly what they will be assessed on and how they will be assessed. This helps students to understand and to be aware of the important aspects of their learning and to become independent learners.


4. Summative For Grade 4 - 6

Students will have a scheduled semester examination starting from Grade 4.

LANGUAGE

A diverse language environment empowers our students to achieve the highest levels of literacy possible. Students are further enriched through the development of other languages which includes the learning of cultures and literature. Insan Cendekia Madani implements a Dual Language program. This program provides opportunities for students to use both English and Indonesian in academic and social situations. We respect and continue the development of the first language. A high level of proficiency in two languages is the goal of dual language education.

The school provides students with a specific language of the day where they can explore and practice communicating in English as well as Bahsa Indonesia in turns in the social language development. As for the academic language development, we apply English as our language of instruction in all subjects except for Bahasa Indonesia, Islamic, and Arabic classes.


READING PROGRAM

At Insan Cendekia Madani School, a reading program has been established to encourage students to read on a regular basis and to enjoy their reading in English as well as in Bahasa Indonesia. It has also been designed specifically for the needs of our students, to encourage the correct use and understanding of the language, to repeat the complex sentence structures of the language and to enjoy a variety of texts.

The program consists of:

  • leveled books, for sequential learning
  • a folder to hold and protect the book
  • a recording sheet, to be completed by student and checked by teachers
  • class and expatriate teachers who regularly listen to students read at school
  • assistant teachers and junior teachers to support reading and book

To support the reading program, we apply the reading log. Reading log is one of the ways to document the reading activities of students in building the reading habit and skills by borrowing a book from library once a week to be read at home. Students read for enjoyment.  Instruction and information are given to students to provide more reading opportunities by exposing them to wide range of fiction and non-fiction texts.


HOMEWORK 

The challenge for teachers is to design and assign a quality and quantity of homework that allows students to develop: a love for learning, an understanding that their time in school is relevant to their lives outside, and acquire academic and personal skills, which will promote further learning in future education.

Homework is the application of a concept (how to apply the skills to everyday life), has a clear purpose, should develop responsibility and attitude to learning, should encourage lifelong, creative and exploratory learners.

All homework will be relevant to skills development explained with clear expectations of outcomes, marked and be given feedback, in an allocated suitable timelines , designed to develop skills for independent learning, complementary to classroom activities that develop skills, attitudes, understanding and knowledge.
