self evaluation process
Self Evaluation Process
  • Self Evaluation and the subsequent School improvement plan are essential as the school is so comparatively young.
  • Whilst at it's launch there was a clear aim and purpose to the school, there has been the need to modify the plan in light of the changes which have occurred.
  • For Inspection Purposes, as the school is all on one site, all phases of the school are inspected together and therefore there is a need to produce as concise and precise Self Evaluation Document as possible.
challenges of self evaluation
Challenges of Self Evaluation
  • Size of the School.

How to determine progress in Islamic Education?

SEF2011-12:What we had set out to achieve
  • To structure the syllabus in way in which it makes it possible to determine the children’s progress
  • To put level descriptors in place and to determine what core knowledge, understanding and skills (KUS) pupils in each year group should cover from the various elements provided by the KHDA Islamic Curriculum, term by term
  • To structure examination questions in such a way so as to assess, children’s knowledge (key words), understanding (practice and relevance of their beliefs to society) and skills (the application of necessary skills such as the reading of the Holy Quran, which will enable them to practice the tenets of Islam)
  • Also, to structure their assessments and End-of-Term test scores along the lines of the core units of learning.
