These tests provide valid internal assessment of knowledge, skills and understanding in English, mathematics and science.
These tests provide valid internal assessment of knowledge, skills and understanding in English as a first or second language, mathematics and science.
Tests are standardised, set and marked by Cambridge International Examinations, so they provide an international benchmark of student achievement, enabling teachers to advise learners and parents of the suitability of different progression routes.
Assessment takes place at the end of the course and includes written, oral, coursework and practical assessment. This broadens opportunities for students to demonstrate their learning, particularly when their first language is not English.
Grades are benchmarked using eight internationally recognised grades, A* to G, which have clear guidelines to explain the standard of achievement for each grade.
CRITICAL THINKING, ACADEMIC RESEARCH AND PROBLEM SOLVING
In the Cambridge program, as in other parts of the Crnjanski system, we pay particular attention to one-on-one work with students. By keeping class sizes small (around 10 students) and assigning every class a lead teacher, we time and opportunities for individual attention.
Students have access to the school psychologist, whose job it is to track students' academic progress and involvement at Crnjanski. The school psychologist is another corner of the mentorship "triangle" involving also the lead teacher and parents or guardian. At the center of this triangle is, of course, the student.
To prepare students for the Cambridge system, we provide preparatory courses in English for full-time students who have not previously attended the program.The preparatory courses are also available for part-time students who wish to learn English in the manner prescribed by the Cambridge program. Attaining English-language proficiency at the expected level can help enable these students to later enroll in the full-time program.
