The evaluation process

Evaluation or review is done at the end of each milestone and total evaluation is done at the end of L&S ladder which is considered as Summative Assessment 2 (SA2).

Evaluation is done at the end of each milestone and total evaluation is done at the end of R&W ladder which is considered as Summative Assessment 2 (SA2). Total Evaluation is done by the students in their workbook.
 
When children attain all the competencies of 252 steps of both L&S and R&W ladders, they are considered to have attained 100 percent competency in LSRW.

Watch this video for a better understanding of the evaluation process.

Meena the Puppet

The puppet ‘Meena’ is introduced to make the review or testing non threatening. The teacher modulates her voice to make it sound unthreatening. If the teacher uses a “testing voice” then the puppet will not be of much use.

Take a look at this video on how to use Meena the Puppet in the classroom.


Logos in R&W of ENK

Most of the logos in ENK are taken from Nali Kali Kannada to make it easy for children to follow. All activities to be done in the workbook carry the logo of ‘Pencil in Hand’ except the evaluation which carries the logo of a Lion.

Thattes in R&W

As discussed earlier, Listening and Speaking activities follow the whole class approach and are designed and sequenced to follow the different stages of the learning curve. Reading and Writing on the other hand is competency-based and therefore follows the thatte process like a regular Nali Kali class.

The three Thattes

In ENK, there are 3 thattes as opposed to 5 thattes of the regular Nali Kali classroom. The number of thattes have been reduced to 3 based on the feedback received from the pilot project schools.
 
Thatte 1 - is a teacher-supported thatte. The activities that are supported here and their logos are shown in the below table:


Thatte-1 activities


Thatte 2 - is partially supported by the teacher or peer-supported. Reading activities are conducted in this thatte. The activities supported here and their logos are shown in the below table:

Thatte-2 activities


Thatte 3 - is where children engage in self-learning and work independently. Activities in this thatte are mainly practice, usage, and evaluation activities. The activities supported here and their logos are shown in the below table.

Thatte-3 activities


Based on the competency achieved by the student, he/she moves from one thatte to another. The activities are sequenced along the learning curve so that students progress from one Thatte to the other and finally achieve the expected learning outcome.
 
The workbook and cards also carry the milestone numbers, card numbers, and logos to make it easy for the students to identify their Thattes.
