A sound evaluation and assessment system has been designed to form an integral part of day-to-day learning and can be implemented during the normal course of teaching learning process to maximise students’ learning. Learning milestones are a healthy blend of both formative and summative components of assessment. In order to cater to individual learning potential, three levels of worksheets - Acceptance, Balance and Challenge are planned. The assessment manual provided is appreciative and motivating rather than critical. It also includes detailed and timely feedback with remedial measures. The Millennium Schools have personalised Performance Enhancement Plans (PEP) which are remedial measures for the learners. They ensure that learning gaps, if any, are bridged before the child is taken to the next level of the concept. To help bridge the gap, a set of remedial books called 'PEP Tool' has been designed by Education Quality Foundation of India's Research and Development Team.
