HVM Con­vent Sr. Sec. School ( Af­fi­lated to CBSE) is pro­moted by Pres­i­dent Mr. D. P. Sharma who is a great vi­sion­ary in the field of Ed­u­ca­tion and Chair­per­son Mr. s Meena Sharma, a renowned Ed­u­ca­tion­ist to turn into re­al­ity the dreams of the chil­dren and their par­ents. Within a span of three years the school has been up­graded to Se­nior Sec­ondary level. A vi­sion which is en­vis­aged ahs to man­i­fest into cre­ative ac­tion to be a vir­tual re­al­ity. Once the mis­sion is dis­cov­ered we feel its de­mand which fills us with enthusiasm and a burn­ing de­sire to work tire­lessly to achieve it. The school has all prime fa­cil­i­ties like smart

IT Gu­rukul, an IT Train­ing school and tech­nol­ogy com­pany has re­cently an­nounced the launch of its fresh job ori­ented cour­ses for IT stu­dents, grad­u­ates, work­ing pro­fes­sion­als and job as­pi­rants. IT in­dus­try is one of the most dy­namic and quickly chang­ing field. To suc­ceed in IT in­dus­try re­quires con­stant up gra­da­tion of one's skills, knowl­edge, and ex­pe­ri­ence with re­spect to the cur­rent trends and tech­nolo­gies in the cor­po­rate world. How­ever, aca­demic ed­u­ca­tion is in­ad­e­quate in sup­ply­ing the stu­dents with prac­ti­cal knowl­edge and real hand ex­pe­ri­ence in the IT world. So to pro­vide the IT stu­dents and work­ing pro­fes­sion­als with the right prac­ti­cal train­ing and knowl­edge of lat­est tech­nol­ogy trends and skills, IT Gu­rukul has come up with new in­dus­try ready and lat­est tech­nol­ogy cour­ses. As per Ms Ko­mal Sharma, Di­rec­tor,IT Gu­rukul, "our sole aim is to en­able young stu­dents and fresh grad­u­ates ful­fill their dream of a suc­cess­ful and pros­per­ous ca­reer in the IT world". The new job ori­ented train­ing Cour­ses are de­signed to cover all ma­jor tech­nolo­gies rang­ing from PHP, .NET, iOS, An­droid, Soft­ware Test­ing & class en­abled rooms, sports fields, well equipped com­puter labs, well stocked li­brary, Art, Craft and Ac­i­tiv­ity Room, Mu­sic & Dance Rooms and state of Art lab­o­ra­to­ries for Physics, Chem­istry, Bi­ol­ogy, So­cial Stud­ies, English & Math­e­mat­ics. The prin­ci­pal of the school Ms. Rad­hika Jain be­lieves that ev­ery chld de­serves and needs a high qual­ity broad based ed­u­ca­tion in or­der to suc­ceed in life. For this it is nec­es­sary to cre­ate a mo­ti­vat­ing & joy­ous at­mos­phere to nur­ture each child, ex­pand­ing the hori­zons of pos­si­bil­ity to grow, to learn and to shine like the ris­ing sun. Java and also in­clude all ma­jor con­cepts and topics along with lat­est trends and up­dates. The cour­ses are most suit­able for both work­ing soft­ware pro­fes­sion­als and can­di­dates study­ing in en­gi­neer­ing cour­ses rang­ing from B.Tech, B.E., BCA, MCA, B.Sc., M.SC. with spe­cial­iza­tion in IT, Com­puter Sci­ence or Elec­tron­ics. "Not only the cour­ses will en­hance stu­dent's em­ploy abil­ity po­ten­tial but will also make them in­dus­try ready by pro­vid­ing them ex­po­sure to live in­ter­na­tional IT projects", said Ms Sharma, while talk­ing about the ben­e­fits of the train­ing cour­ses for ITpro­fes­sion­als and stu­dents. All these cour­ses are de­signed and de­vel­oped by ex­pe­ri­enced in­dus­try ex­perts and the train­ing will also be pro­vided by ex­pe­ri­enced and cer­ti­fied train­ers un­der an in­ter­ac­tive learn­ing en­vi­ron­ment. The du­ra­tion of the cour­ses is three to six months depend­ing upon short term or long term train­ing re­quire­ments. Can­di­dates will get their train­ing com­ple­tion cer­tifi­cate al­most im­me­di­ately upon the suc­cess­ful com­ple­tion of the course. They will also be handed an Ex­pe­ri­ence let­ter, HR con­sul­ta­tion and place­ment as­sis­tance for their fu­ture job. Why do chil­dren feel bur­dened? There are mainly 3 cul­prits be­hind all exam wor­ries ? 1. Lack of a Sys­tem­atic Prepa­ra­tion Plan A sys­tem­atic prepa­ra­tion plan would ideally in­volve break­ing down the en­tire syl­labus into learn­ing ob­jec­tives and weekly goals that a child needs to cover. This en­sures that work is al­ways man­age­able and never piles up. 2. In­abil­ity to move to high lev­els of learn­ing them­selves Some­times, as stu­dents go through a book, they feel that they have un­der­stood ev­ery­thing, but as they face an exam they find them­selves at a loss when faced with ap­pli­ca­tion based ques­tions. This is be­cause many stu­dents are un­aware about how to take their learn­ing con­tin­u­ously to the next lev­els. This mostly in­volves adult su­per­vi­sion and ex­pert guid­ance. So we end up with stu­dents who say that they had pre­pared very well but still faced dif­fi­culty in qual­ity ex­ams. 3. Lack of pin­pointed feed­back on where to work It is very im­por­tant that as stu­dents progress through learn­ing, they would need a sci­en­tific feed­back on their achieve­ments, learn­ing gaps and most im­por­tantly how to plug in those learn­ing gaps. If this is a con­tin­u­ous and com­pre­hen­sive process, a stu­dent would al­ways be stress free while fac­ing any kind of ex­ams. be­fore hand to en­able them do a fo­cused prepa­ra­tion. The ques­tions are selected care­fully to iden­tify hid­den mis­con­cep­tions and lack of un­der­stand­ing in each topic area. The reporting sys­tem is so de­signed that the score is just a mo­ti­vat­ing fac­tor for the stu­dent, but what as­sumes im­por­tance is the de­tailed anal­y­sis of per­for­mance to iden­tify strengths and weak­nesses, type of er­rors com­mit­ted, and rec­om­mended ac­tions for im­prove­ment. Wouldn't the test it­self be­come a bur­den? It is not the test­ing that brings in pres­sure but the stakes and ex­pec­ta­tions of par­ents, peers and self. Here at STEPS, test­ing is a mere ser­vant, a tool to iden­tify chinks in stu­dents' ar­mor and there are no other ex­pec­ta­tions or stakes as­so­ci­ated with it that would make it bur­den­some for them. Rather a stu­dent starts en­joy­ing the test­ing process as s/ he starts as­sum­ing com­plete con­trol of his/ her stud­ies and each sub­se­quent test takes him/her to­wards per­fec­tion. How a true for­ma­tive test­ing and re­me­dial ac­tion sys­tem helps stu­dents mas­ter cur­ric­u­lar goals with min­i­mal stress A true for­ma­tive as­sess­ment has im­prove­ment in the learn­ing as its fore­most goal. It has sev­eral com­po­nents and the ob­jec­tive of all com­po­nents con­verges to­wards help­ing the stu­dent be­come a more ef­fec­tive and ef­fi­cient learner. Post Test Feed­back: how does it help ? A child needs feed­back af­ter ev­ery test on -where is s/he los­ing marks and what his weak and strong ar­eas are - what kind of mis­takes s/ he is mak­ing -what should s/he read again from the text­book -what kind of ac­tion can bring in im­prove­ment What is "type of mis­takes" anal­y­sis? Stu­dents are prone to cer­tain types of mis­takes, which usu­ally fol­low a pat­tern. An aware­ness of mis­takes one is prone to makes one fo­cus on avoid­ing them and get­ting rel­e­vant guid­ance on how to elim­i­nate those weak­nesses. How do text­book rec­om­men­da­tions help? A child faced with dif­fi­culty in scor­ing usu­ally is ad­vised to go through the en­tire chap­ter. A typ­i­cal chap­ter would con­tain dense text of some 15-20 pages. As s/he skims through it s/ he feels that s/he knows most of the con­cepts and s/ he is sel­dom able to pin­point ar­eas where s/he needs to work again. This can be very frus­trat­ing for a child study­ing un­der a time pres­sure. But a child tak­ing THE WEEKEND TEST SE­RIES gets a de­tailed feed­back on what the ar­eas of im­prove­ment are, where s/he is di­rected to spe­cific pages and sec­tions of text­book to sup­port fo­cused ef­fort with­out wast­ing time and ef­fort. STEPS WEEKEND TEST SE­RIES: a tool for all chil­dren to reach their true aca­demic po­ten­tial WEEKEND TEST SE­RIES ex­tends its ben­e­fit to a wide cat­e­gory of stu­dents. There are stu­dents, who are un­der­per­form­ing and would like to know why they are not able to im­prove de­spite best ef­forts on their part, then there are stu­dents who are scor­ing well al­ready, but they would like to bench­mark them­selves with the stu­dents in other in­sti­tu­tions or would like to know if they can do well in a test that tests them on dif­fer­ent cog­ni­tive skills and achieve per­fec­tion. There are stu­dents who are helped by par­ents, stu­dents who go to tu­itions or stu­dents who study by them­selves; My child does self study. How is it rel­e­vant for him/her? Most of the stu­dents who do self study strug­gle in two as­pects 1. Main­tain­ing Reg­u­lar­ity and Fo­cus: In the ab­sence of a short term goal to fo­cus on and strive for, stu­dents reg­u­larly go off track when con­tin­gen­cies like school projects and as­sign­ments arise. The end re­sult is that they are bet­ter pre­pared on some topics than on oth­ers. The WEEKEND TEST SE­RIES gives them a short term goal for the weekend and they are reg­u­larly fo­cused and sys­tem­atic in their stud­ies. 2. Reach­ing the High­est Learn­ing Lev­els: A stu­dent do­ing self study is able to gather knowl­edge and un­der­stand con­cepts well with­out any ex­ter­nal help. But Ed­u­ca­tion­ists all over the world agree that to pro­ceed to higher lev­els of learn­ing like ap­pli­ca­tion skills, a stu­dent needs some­body who throws prob­lems in­volv­ing higher or­der think­ing at him and helps him/ her dis­cover ways to solve those chal­lenges. WEEKEND TEST SE­RIES tests a stu­dent on all lev­els of learn­ing pre­scribed by CBSE, which in­clude a pro­gres­sion from Knowl­edge and un­der­stand­ing to Higher Or­der Think­ing Skills (HOTS). I help my child at home/I have a tu­tor to help my child. Then how is it rel­e­vant for my child? Any adult who is help­ing a stu­dent, be it a par­ent or a tu­tor would re­ally ap­pre­ci­ate the as­sis­tance of an in­de­pen­dent pro­fes­sional third party as­sess­ment which: a. pro­vides them with a com­pre­hen­sive anal­y­sis of the achieve­ment of the stu­dent so far b. guides fur­ther ac­tion to help stu­dents over­come gaps in their learn­ing In Con­clu­sion WEK­END TEST SE­RIES will make learn­ing stress free for a child & would pro­pel him to aca­demic heights.
