Approach to Education

Testing System

ISC - Egypt students are tested frequently. Frequent testing enables the Academic Quality Controllers to monitor students' performance and pinpoint gaps that need to be filled to secure a solid foundation on which to build further knowledge. Testing trains students in sustained mental effort for long periods of time: a training that is essential for future success. Testing also reinforces knowledge and prepares students to successfully face and tackle difficult situations under pressure. At the end of the academic year, this information is combined with the end-of-year examinations to determine whether or not the student is promoted to the next grade level.

Continuous Assessment Tests (CAT)

Grades 1 to 4. A CAT is taken in each subject twice a term. This series of tests is administered over a period of one week. CATs help to monitor student learning and allow academic progress reports.

SABIS Academic Monitoring System® Tests (SABIS AMS®)

Grades 3 to 11: These are multiple-choice and computer-corrected examinations that test the simplest units of information in the course. They are administered on a weekly basis, are designed to detect gaps in individual student knowledge, and allow for timely and student-specific follow-up. Beginning in Level E with just mathematics, students take multiple choice tests every week. In Level F, they add on English every week. From Grade 8 upwards, science is added to the weekly tests. Other subjects are added as of Grade 10.

Periodic Exams

Grades 5 to 12: These are written and / or multiple choice exams taken on a weekly basis, according to set schedules. These may also include some objective questions. Students sit two to four periodic exams a term in each of their subjects.

Integrated Testing & Learning (ITL)

It is a Computer-Based Examination system that generates multiple choice or computer correctable exams. It allows the school to monitor, in real time, student answers and the results can be collated and printed as reports at the end of the exam, allowing direct feedback on student progress. These tests also include a learning and re-testing cycle.

Re-take Exams

Students who do not master the basic essential concepts may be required, at the discretion of the administration, to re-study the relevant essential concepts and sit for another exam.

Make-up Exams

In the case of student absence, the Administration reserves the right to decide whether or not a make-up exam is required.
