The process of assessing the students’ progress in achieving objectives related to scholastic and co-scholastic domain is called comprehensive evaluation. The desirable behaviour related to a learner’s life skills, attitudes, interests, values, co-curricular activities and physical health are described as skills to be acquired in co-scholastic domain.
It has been observed that usually under the scholastic domain, knowledge and understanding of the facts, concepts, and principles etc. of a subject are assessed. The co-scholastic elements are either altogether excluded from the evaluation process or they are not given adequate attention. For making the evaluation comprehensive, both scholastic and co-scholastic aspects should be given importance. Simple and manageable means of assessment of co-scholastic aspects of growth have been included at DSE in the comprehensive evaluation scheme.
Work Experience, Visual and Performing Arts, Clubs, Health and Physical Education activities at DSE cater to the enhancement of skills in the co-scholastic areas. Students indulge in an activity of their choice and are graded for the same regularly.
