The use of formative assessment (Assessment for Learning) as well as summative assessment (Assessment of Learning) is evident across the Academy. In particular, all summative assessments are designed such that they can be used formatively.
In summative assessment, each term is broken down into two assessment periods (mid-term and end of term). The dates for the assessment periods are given on the assessment calendar and integrated into the school calendar. In Forms One and Two, learners are assessed using one hour long CATs at mid-term and before end of term. However, the end of year assessment is two hours long and it assesses work learnt throughout the year. The end of year assessment may also include academic work covered in a previous academic year. The Form Three and Four assessment mirrors the KCSE assessment standards in terms of length and timing of papers.
