SLOW & ADVANCED LEARNER POLICY OF THE DEPARTMENT

This Policy is being taken by Ramakrishna Sarada Mission Vivekananda Vidhyabhavan, as a step towards identifying the potential of individual students in a class and in order to develop that potential through specially curated teaching-learning procedure. Department of Bengali has taken the Policy for identifying Slow & Advanced Learners of a Semester through the following evaluation:

  • Assessment of the student’s class responses in the teaching-learning process
  • Evaluation of the student’s earlier reading in the subject and related areas
  • Assessment of the written performances through classwork and class tests
  • A questionnaire has been set of 50 marks on the syllabus that has taught, containing 1 or 2 marks questions to evaluate their capability of understanding the matter or the subject.
  • Students obtaining below 40% are selected as SLOW LEARNERS, above 60% are determined as ADVANCED LEARNERS and the rest of the students are treated as average for which classroom teaching is considered sufficient.
  • In Remedial Classes slow learners are individually taught—in maximum cases their grammatical errors, concepts, point-wise writing and writing speed etc. are improved. The Advanced Learners are given extra reference books, pdf links that they can use or prepare their answers properly. Teachers allot them project works and teach them how to prepare a paper for journals etc.
  • After two months teachers observe whether spelling, grammar, writing speed etc. have improved for the Slow Learners, then promote them to the average group.
